Swansea City Women captain Katy Hosford has joined the Former Players' Association committee in hope of encouraging ex-Swans Women players to reconnect with the club.

The midfielder has been with the club for 10 years, making her debut in 2013 before helping her side to four league titles.

The FPA is free to join and is open to men and women who have represented the club at senior level. 

The association's primary aims are to promote friendship and support, while also taking part in charitable work and fundraising, by bringing together players from different generations and different eras. 

The FPA currently has several former women's players registered, and would warmly welcome more who wish to join up.

Money raised by fundraising events such as the end-of-season-player awards will be used to support local charities and provide a fund for ex-players.

And Hosford hopes to encourage her former teammates and beyond to come together to re-unite with the club.

"I'm very excited to be on the committee, it means a lot to be asked and I can't wait to share ideas with everyone to bring more former players together," she said.

"Being the first FPA to accept former women's players is amazing, and now with the Swans Women's team becoming semi-professional, it's perfect timing.

"The FPA is there to help anyone who's played for this club, and I would love to help reconnect anyone I've played with, as well as players before my time here with the club they've once represented."

Any former Swansea City players who wish to join the FPA can contact secretary Catherine Thomas, on 01792 616420 or email catherinethomas@swanseacity.com.
