Swans v Stoke at the cinema

Today, it’s fairly easy to see the highlights of Swans’ games. There’s the internet and, if  even if you don’t mind waiting until the end of the show, Match of Day. But even just a few years ago it wasn’t that easy. Then it was a case of waiting for that show beloved of all Swansea fans Soccer Sunday.  Go even further back and there are many away goals that just a handful of Swans fans saw.

One way to see the goals was at the cinema where they sometimes featured as part of the Newsreel items that preceded the main film. Here’s an ad from 1925 advertising the highlights from a match against Stoke.
