Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins hails best season

26th June 2015

Chairman Huw Jenkins has toasted the Swans' record-breaking campaign as "the best season in the club's history."
Garry Monk's side broke a club record by picking up 56 points during the Barclays Premier League campaign, beating the previous tally of 47 set in 2011-12.
It also saw the Swans end the season in eighth place - the club's best finish in the Premier League.
And Jenkins feels the current crop's success surpasses the achievements of John Toshack's side which ended their top-flight campaign in 1982 in sixth.



Speaking during the Swans' seasonal review DVD Record Breakers: History Makers, he said: "When you're competing in this division against big clubs, for us to be in the top ten all year and finish eighth comfortably shows that we've gone to a new level.
"We've got a strong squad and the club is in a fantastic position, so it has to be the best shape the club has ever been in its history.
"To me it's the best season in the club's history. We have exceeded expectations - I don't think anyone can argue that."
He added: "We have been consistent throughout the season, and that was the very pleasing thing.
"To stay in the top half of the table for the entire season is a fantastic achievement for us.
"That is a key indicator to the stability of the club and the consistency Garry has brought to performances.
"Finishing eighth is the highest position we have achieved in the Premier League while we also picked up our record points tally, so that shows the effort and commitment from all of Garry's staff and players.
"It fills you with huge comfort and pride that the club has done so well."
