Centenary magazine out now
16th August 2013
With the new Premier League season getting underway this weekend, there is set to be a new batch of memories created over the next ten months.
But whatever happens between now and May, the 2012-13 campaign will be difficult to beat for Swansea City.
In the club's centenary year, Michael Laudrup guided the Swans to ninth place in the Premier League and a first major trophy in the form of the Capital One Cup.
And together with the help of our colleagues at 'AtTheMatch', we have compiled a special souvenir magazine that looks back at the last 100 years of Swansea City Football Club.
The 94-page publication is packed with exclusive content and behind-the-scenes features.
Chairman Huw Jenkins welcomes fans in with his foreword, while there is great focus on how the club nearly went out of business following relegation from the First Division, as well as coming close to dropping out of the Football League in 2003.
Journalists look at how Swansea's Premier League success has impacted on the city and its surrounding areas, while the Supporters' Trust also play a prominent part.
Former Denmark international John Jensen talks exclusively about his old friend and team-mate Michael Laudrup, and there is a special feature on the club's Academy structure.
There is a look back at some of Swansea's best signings over their 100-year history, with a particular focus on golden boy Ivor Allchurch.
As well as this, we take a look at the Spanish influx in south west Wales and how it has paved the way for a football revolution, a feature on the south Wales derby and its history, and there is also the chance for readers to win a signed Swans shirt.
There is all this and much, much more.
The 'Swans 100' souvenir magazine is priced at £5 and is available to buy in the club shop.
