  1. Was there to watch Alan Waddle score his goals. A great player. Remember most of the others too

  2. 28th April 1979 was my first ever Swans game.

    IIRC we left with the scores at 1-2 but by the time we walked back to the car, it was 3-2. This then 7 year old learned very quickly you should never leave games early……
