To celebrate World Book Day Swansea City launched a series of competitions for all Junior Jacks to take part in. The Junior Jacks could choose from four competitions to be part of, which helped to focus on their literacy, reading and communication skills.

The club received lots of great entries and all who entered have been sent a Swansea City goodie bag! Well done all.

The winners and runners-up for each competition were as follows:

Write a fact file of your favourite book

The winner was Olivia Goodwin, a year six student at Tairgwaith Primary School who wrote a two-page review of her favourite book, 'The Creakers'. Olivia received a signed shirt as her prize.

The runner-up for this competition was William Grey, aged 9, for his description of his favourite book, 'Diary of a Wimpey Kid'.

Design your own Swansea City matchday programme

The winner was Jack Leech, aged 11, who designed a 10-page matchday programme based on our fixture against Middlesbrough. Jack included background information on Middlesbrough and their players, a match review of our previous fixture against Stoke City, along with lots of interesting features and stats on the Swans Squad.

Jack will get the chance to contribute to a future matchday programme in recognition of his excellent efforts.

Write a letter to your favourite player

The winner of this category was Gethin Jones. Gethin’s letter was addressed to his favourite player, Connor Roberts.

World Book Day competition

Gethin was given the amazing prize of being Connor's virtual mascot when the Swans take on AFC Bournemouth on Tuesday.

Gethin will receive a personalised video from Connor and a signed shirt after the fixture, along with the other benefits of being a club mascot.

Runners-up were Rhys Mackenzie Thomas, aged seven, for his letter to Connor Roberts, Ethan Drew-White, aged 12, for his letter to Morgan Whittaker and Tommy Yandle, aged seven, for his letter to Freddie Woodman. Well done everyone on their entries.
