Swans saddened by passing of Tommy Smith

12th April 2019

Swansea City is saddened to hear of the passing of former player Tommy Smith at the age of 74.

Although synonymous with hometown club Liverpool, with whom he won four league titles, two FA Cups, two UEFA Cups and the 1977 European Cup - scoring in the final of the latter against Borussia Monchengladbach - Smith also spent a season with the Swans.

Persuaded to head to the Vetch Field by his former Anfield team-mate John Toshack, Smith would make 43 appearances and score two goals for the club during the 1978-79 season, helping the Swans to win promotion from the Third Division before hanging up his boots.

The thoughts of everyone at Swansea City are with Tommy's friends and family at this sad time.
