Proud Tremmel thanks Jack Army

29th May

With a Capital One Cup winners medal and fond memories of a European adventure to take with him, Gerhard Tremmel is proud to be a part of Swansea City history as he bids farewell to the club.

The German goalkeeper, who joined the club in the summer of 2011, played a crucial role as the Swans claimed their first major honour by winning the Capital One Cup in 2013.

The former Bayern Munich youth product played every minute of the Swans' League Cup run as they lifted the trophy at Wembley after a convincing 5-0 victory over Bradford City.

On top of his Capital One Cup medal, Tremmel's highlights for the Swans include playing in the Europa League, featuring in the FA Cup win over Manchester United - the club's first victory at Old Trafford - and a memorable 2-0 win at Arsenal.

And the 36-year-old, who made over 50 appearances for the Swans, wished to pay tribute to the Jack Army for making his four-year stay in SA1 so special.

"I'd like to say thank you to the fans for all of their support during my time with the club," said Tremmel, reflecting on his time in Swansea. "They always turn up in their numbers, which has been so important for us.

"It's been a very emotional four years, and I have enjoyed some very happy times here. 

"I will go away with some great memories, especially of our Capital One Cup win, which was probably the best moment of my career.

"It was also a great experience to play for the club in the Europa League, where we enjoyed some fantastic nights.

"I'm very proud to have played a part in Swansea City history, and I will always remember my time here.

"Hopefully at some point in the future I will see you all again."
