Britton goes under the spotlight in Jack Mag
9th January 2015
Swansea's pass master Leon Britton goes under the spotlight in 2015's opening edition of Jack Magazine as the Swans host West Ham United at the Liberty Stadium (3pm, January 10).
The 32-year-old midfielder shares his thoughts with the official matchday programme on why he believes the current Swans side is the best he's played in, while reflecting on just how much has changed since his debut at Exeter City in December 2002.
"At the time we were bottom of League Two," said Britton, who has now made well over 400 league appearances for the Swans. "You would never have dreamed that we would be sitting ninth in the Premier League just over 12 years on. And even if you did, you probably wouldn't dream that you'd still be a part of it all now.
"From the facilities to the stadium to the teams we played against to the players we have now, you wouldn't have ever dreamed that things could change so much.
"But I was just happy to play that day. Being in the reserves at West Ham, I just wanted to go out and get some games.
"I enjoyed it just as much then as I do now. It was a great group of lads back then, and we have a great group of lads now."
Also in Saturday's edition of Jack Magazine, West Ham supporter and talkSPORT reporter Ian 'the Moose' Abrahams discusses his long-standing passion for the Hammers and his thoughts on the Swans, while former West Ham midfielder and Swans loanee Matthew Rush takes centre-stage in 'Foot in Both Camps'.
Meanwhile, Lukasz Fabianski dishes the dirt on his fellow Swans in 'Team-Mates', club ambassador Lee Trundles gives us the lowdown on his Christmas Day visit to Morriston Hospital, and Dzemal 'Jimmy' Hadziabdic features in this weekend's edition of 'Top Flight Jacks'.
And there's plenty more in store to keep you entertained right up until kick-off in this Saturday's jam-packed edition of Jack Magazine, which will be available for £3 on matchday from around the Liberty Stadium, the Club Shop and online.
It will also be available in Slee Stores in Plasmari, Coggers on Wind Street and Browns Newsagent in Landore.
Jack Magazine really is a must-have for any Swans fan. Don't miss out.
*Please be advised*
Swans fans should be aware that the local authority's new parking enforcement van is expected to be in operation around the streets of the Liberty Stadium on matchdays.
It takes pictures of cars parking illegally, including resident-only bays, and a penalty notice is automatically generated and the fine sent to your home address.
Therefore, to avoid an unwanted fine, supporters are advised to use one of the following council authorised car parks:
Park and ride at Felindre: J46 of the M4 (exit motorway and follow the signs)
Park and walk site at Landore: Adjacent to the city centre park and ride site
Park and walk next to Swansea Tennis Centre
Park and ride at the Recreation Ground at St Helens.
The cost is £6 per car.
