Snapshot: Swans on top

Swansea City’s players celebrate with the Third Division trophy having sealed the title on the final day of the season at Rotherham United.

The Swans went to Millmoor on May 6, 2000 knowing a draw would see them claim a first league championship since 1948-49.

And John Hollins’s resilient team got the job done in a game which featured two late penalties.

Matthew Bound put the Swans in front from the spot on 88 minutes.

Lee Glover then responded with a successful spot-kick for second-placed Rotherham, but the Swans got the point which ensured they came out on top.

The celebrations were cut short, however, as news came through that Swans fan Terry Coles had lost his life after being trampled by a police horse outside the stadium before the game.
