Snapshot | Flying the flag

7th April 2020

Swansea Town manager Trevor Morris flies the flag ahead of the 1964 FA Cup semi-final against Preston North End.

The Swans, a second-tier club at the time, had been on a thrilling run to reach the last four for only the second time in their history.

Morris's men saw off three First Division sides on their run.

First they got the better of Sheffield United in a replay, then repeated the trick against Stoke City.

The most notable win came in the last eight, when the Swans stunned Liverpool by triumphing 2-1 at Anfield.

Two weeks later, however, the run came to a disappointing end as the Swans were beaten 2-1 by fellow Second Division side Preston at Villa Park.
