Newsreels of Swansea Town in the FA Cup 1950s and 1960s.

Newsreel footage of Swansea Town FA Cup and Welsh Cup matches from the 1950s and 1960s.

Newsreels were shown at the cinema before the main feature. In the 50s and 60s, with little football on tv, they were most the common way for fans to see big clubs in action or the important away games of their own teams.
