SWANSEA CITY

 

To be completed ...

The Vetch Field was originally rented off the local gas company, who used the area for depositing their waste products.  This caused a big stink in the area and lead to years of protests against the rubbish that was on the site.

Swansea sold Roy John to Walsall in 1930 and some time later, needing a full back, the Swans bought him back from the Midlands club, only to find he was now a well capped international goalkeeper.
