Swansea City is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of the club’s former player Mark Davies at the age of 49.

Mark made three senior appearances for the Swans during the 1991-92 season, with two of those coming in the European Cup Winners’ Cup ties against Monaco.

He had been a West Wales Senior Cup winner the year before.

Those appearances in Europe saw the defender face the not inconsiderable task of marking a certain George Weah against Arsene Wenger’s Monegasques.

Mark would make his league bow for the Swans against Huddersfield that same season, and would later represent Merthyr Tydfil and Llanelli following his release by the Swans, before an injury enforced retirement.

The centre-back and full-back later played for the Reds’ veteran side, and was taken ill during their Wales Veterans’ Cup final tie against Penybont last weekend.

Everyone at Swansea City sends their sincerest condolences to Mark’s friends and family at this sad time.
