The Swansea City Alphabet (Welsh Sporting Legends)
"The Swansea City Alphabet" evokes the experience of supporting the Swans, the highs and the lows, the good times and the bad. In it you will find the club greats - and not so greats - on events, themes and experiences in the club's eventful past and present. From Vetch to Liberty and from Ivor to Trundle, it reflects the idiosyncratic life and times of a club whose condition is often serious, but rarely dull. A lively and fascinating book, "The Swansea City Alphabet" provides a wealth of information and anecdotes including the High Court Judge who had something in common with the North Bank urinals and the Swans great who was born in gaol (and others not so great who might have gone there). A personal selection, but one that will appeal to all supporters of Swansea City, it is written with warmth and humour by a lifelong fan. It is copiously illustrated both from the author's own collection of memorabilia, and includes over 80 photographs.
