Kwame Ampadu is pictured wearing a Swansea City shirt in February 1997.

Ampadu, whose son Ethan is a regular for Wales and is currently on loan at RB Leipzig from Chelsea, was a midfielder who played more than 150 games during four years as a Swan.

This photograph was taken in an away Third Division game at Northampton Town, which Jan Molby’s Swans won 2-1 thanks to goals from Paul Brayson and Dave Penney.

It was the second time in the 1996-97 season that the Swans had beaten the Cobblers, but it was a different story when they met for a third time in the campaign.

Ampadu featured again in the play-off final at Wembley, where Swans hearts were broken by a late John Frain free-kick.
