Back in 2012-13 Swansea City approached a landmark milestone in its history when it celebrated its Centenary year.
As part of these celebrations, the football club commissioned the Supporters Trust to oversee an official project designed to commemorate the 100 years of the Swans through a series of books and DVDs.
A committee assembled by the Supporters Trust was launched and an appeal to collate information, pictures and names to be included in the commemorative collections was made. The collections included the views and memories of supporters as well as past players and staff, and incorporated a pictorial history of the club during its Vetch and Liberty Stadium years.
The committee invited contributions from all members of the Swans famil including those supporters who were in possession of interesting photographs, programmes, and memorabilia that could be used to illustrate the books. All items submitted were treated with great care and returned after they had been scanned.
Chair of the Trust, Phil Sumbler, said at the time: “One hundred years of Swansea City is something that the club is very keen to celebrate in the right manner. This particular project will form a small part of the official celebrations, but we are still keen to produce an extremely high quality item that highlights the varied history of the club.
“We have around 18 months to bring this project to completion and are anticipating contacting many hundreds of people who have been involved with the club during the centenary period, and also relatives of people who may have been around in the early years.
“In particular at the moment it is photographs, programmes and memorabilia that we are looking for. However we are keen to hear from anyone who feels that they have something that could be contributed to the collection.”
