Swans land a new fan in Alfie
26th September 2016
Swansea City have landed themselves a new fan - after five-year-old Chelsea supporter Alfie Phelps was won over on a trip to the Liberty Stadium.
Alfie, who is in a wheelchair, follows Chelsea all over the country along with dad Darren.
And after they came to Wales to watch the recent 2-2 draw with the Swans, Alfie has become an adopted Jack.
In a letter sent to the Liberty after the game, Darren wrote: "I would like to say what a wonderful football club you have.
"As you know my son is in a wheelchair and your club could not have been any more helpful. The stewards, club store staff and the police were all very welcoming and went the extra bit further to make our day special.
"We follow Chelsea all over the country and I have to say Swansea City are by a country mile the best club we have been to for access, toilets and helpful staff for disabled people.
"My son enjoyed it that much we brought him a Swansea top from the club shop and he wants to come again but to support Swansea instead of Chelsea.
"I have to say I will definitely be bringing him down again, this time to support Swansea. Your football club now has a place in my boy's heart and you are now his 'second' team.
"Again, as his dad, I just want to say thank you for making our trip a wonderful experience for us both. You should all be proud of how your club and fans who were also excellent and we hope to see you all again very soon."
After Alfie enjoyed his trip to SA1 so much, the Swans have invited him to come back with his family to see another game.
The club have also sent Alfie a gift pack including a signed programme, pin badges and an autograph book which has been signed by many of the players.
