Swansea City bowling night a big success

22nd January 2020

The Swansea City squad and the Jack Army teamed up for a special Ten Pin Bowling Night.

Steve Cooper and his squad headed to Swansea Ten Pin for the event for a bonding and fundraising night in aid of mental health charities Hafal and Swansea Mind.

Returning for the first time since 2012, the event – organised by the club and the Supporters’ Trust - proved hugely popular as all 26 lanes were booked out with fans being joined by a member of the Swans squad for their game.

Swans skipper Matt Grimes highlighted the importance of the event.

“We’ve had a great time bowling with everyone and chatting about everything from football to family,” said Grimes.

“As a squad we are well aware of the importance the football club has in the community, and the role we have both on and off the pitch.

“But it’s important to stress the importance of the community to the football club too, so it’s a great way of combining the two and for everyone to have such an enjoyable time in the process.”

After a few strikes and numerous gutter balls were played, there was no doubting which Swan has a potential career in bowling ahead of him.

"George Byers had the best score - 174 was by far the highest of our players," said Grimes. “I'm sure George will be reminding us of that score in training on Thursday morning!

“But the important thing is that everyone had a great time and we’re all looking forward to upcoming events.”
