Are you? a family member or an ancestor in one of the 100's of photos?

This amazing collection, which spans from Vetch Field to Villa Park and contains over 250 vintage photos and various artefacts, depicts the history of Swansea Town Football Club from its founding in 1912 until 1964, when the team came within 45 minutes of making it to the FA Cup Final at Wembley. The book has a tonne of fantastic action images and rare, behind-the-scenes photos from the archives that cover a variety of topics, including the club's founding, its ascent in the 1920s, its less successful 1930s wartime and post-war teams, the club's return to Division Two in 1949, and several incredible cup runs. Particular focus is given to the individuals that helped the team become outstanding managers, including Bradshaw, Haydn Green, Trevor Morris, and Billy McCandless, as well as players, like Trevor Ford, Ivor Allchurch, and Joe Sykes.Football analyst Richard Shepherd is the creator of this compilation, using content from both his own vast archival resources and the personal collections of former Swansea Town players and their families. Similar to his earlier works on football in Wales, he contributes a plethora of knowledge to this book from his 25 years of broadcasting expertise as well as his 45 years of football following. It's a must-read for younger football fans who want to see a rich past brought to life as well as for those who remember when the team was known as Swansea Town, thanks to its fascinating photographs, knowledgeable comments, and foreword by Tom Kiley.
