Swansea City | The Great Escape | Documentary
Swansea City has seen a lot in the last 20 years.
An improbable rise from the bottom tier to the heights of the Premier League, victories over Manchester United, Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal, major silverware and European adventure.
Yet it is no exaggeration to say that none of those moments would have been possible were it not for the events of May 3, 2003. Twenty years ago today.
That afternoon a team scrabbled together and rebuilt during the course of the 2002-03 season faced Hull City with Swansea’s place in the Football League at stake.
This is the story of that team and their great escape.
