Steve Cooper dedicated Swansea City’s win over Norwich City to the memory of Mitchell Powell, after the Swans fan sadly passed away earlier this week.

The East Stand season ticket holder died after a lifelong battle with a heart condition, and was renowned for his charity fundraising efforts, and was close to a number of staff at the club.

And, following the 2-0 victory over the Canaries, head coach Cooper opened his post-match press conference by paying tribute to him.

“I would like to dedicate the result to Mitchell Powell,” said Cooper.

“We have lost one of the Jack Army in awful, tragic circumstances, and as a football club our heart goes out to the family.

“We wish them well, and if there is anything we can do for them then we will do our best.

“That is at the forefront of the club’s mind, so I am really pleased on that front that we won the game.”
