Volunteers creating new material – interviews with former players, video forum

The project has taken a big step forward in the last 24 hours through the efforts of volunteers. Students in the History department at Swansea recorded our first project video, a conversation between four fans about their supporting experiences – watch out for the edit to be posted on the site. Another of our volunteers, Gorseinon man Gethin Evans, has been interviewing former players, and so far has talked to Leighton James, Jimmy Rimmer and Wendell Morgan. Gethin also brought in a scrapbook complied by Darwell Williams’ son Martin, to be scanned and added to the archive. Again, watch out fro these to be posted on the website.

These are great initiatives – the archive will only reach its potential if the wider community contributes! Get out there and search those lofts again – find out if that old chap across the road really did play for the Swans – come and talk to us if you have any good stories!

Remember, e-mail swans100@swansea.ac.uk if you want to get in touch, or call 01792 606535.
