Match-worn fourth shirt auction raises over £6,000 for Former Players' Association

Former Players Association
FPA shirt auction

The auction of Swansea City's match-worn fourth from the club's fixture against Queens Park Rangers has raised more than £6,000 for the Former Players' Association.

The design, which marked - and is inspired by - the 30th anniversary of the Swans’ historic Autoglass Trophy triumph on our first trip to Wembley in 1994, was worn for the only time against QPR in April.

All shirts worn by and issued to the matchday squad were made available for supporters to bid on, and a final figure of £6,410 was raised from the auction, with Ronald's shirt attracting the highest price of £800.

The FPA launched in August 2021 with the aim to reunite those who have worn the club shirt, and wish to continue or renew their links to Swansea City. 

The association provides opportunities for ex-players, both men and women, to attend matches, meet other ex-players and to come along to social events such as charity walks and coffee mornings.  

It also offers financial aid to members who may be facing challenging circumstances in their lives after football.
