Tonight’s message from Russell Martin
at 14:20 16 Aug 2022



Good evening and welcome back to the Swansea.com Stadium for our home fixture against Millwall.

We return home in good spirits after picking up victory over Blackpool at the weekend, and we are keen to carry the confidence from that performance and result into tonight’s game.

I was so pleased for the players because they showed the resolve and mentality to respond to a couple of disappointing results with a first-half display of real energy and aggression, and they ended up getting a deserved reward with our late winner.

It was a long bus journey to Blackpool amidst the heat and the traffic, and the conditions for the game itself were similarly sweltering, but the guys overcame those challenges and hopefully gave our supporters a weekend to remember with some 1,500 Swans fans in the away end.

We are always so incredibly grateful for the support we receive, and it was great to share the victory with our fans, who always travel in their numbers and give us outstanding, vocal backing.

The players showed real spirit to regain control of the game after a difficult 15 minutes at the start of the second half, and that was exemplified by Michael Obafemi unselfishly setting up Olivier Ntcham for our winner.

It would have been so easy for Michael to want to be the hero and to ignore the options he had, but he recognised Olivier had made a huge effort to get up there to support him and he made the right decision to give us three points. Moments like that tell you a lot about the character of the people we have in our dressing room.

I also have to mention Andy Fisher, who had an outstanding game. His penalty save took the headlines – something which is testimony to the work he and goalkeeping coach Dean Thornton put in every day – but his all-round game was excellent, and shows the growth he has made since coming to Swansea.

We now face a Millwall side who are well-coached and have a clear way of playing under Gary Rowett.

We enjoyed two really good tussles with them last season, I am sure tonight will be no different and they will be looking to put together another strong season after just missing out on the play-offs last term.

The challenge for us is to try and bring the energy and aggression we showed in attack at Blackpool to this game on home soil.

We were really disappointed with the result against Blackburn the last time we played in front of you, and we want to play with control and real intent, and hopefully have a positive result to show for it.

As ever, we will try to be the team we want to be and look to deliver a performance that gives us the best possible chance of winning.

I also want to take the opportunity to offer my sincere condolences – and those of the club – to the family and friends of Lenny Johnrose following his sad passing.

I know Lenny was a hugely popular figure on and off the field at Swansea City, and he made a vital contribution to this club at a key moment in its history.

We have coaches and staff at Swansea City who worked alongside Lenny and held him in incredibly high regard, and it is only right that we as a club pay our respects to him this evening.

Confirmation our figures were correct
at 13:34 16 Aug 2022

Swansea City priced Bristol Rovers out of any chance of getting Kyle Joseph.

What did they expect ?

We pay his wages ?

Quote.

In his post-match conference, Rovers manager Joey Barton revealed that Joseph was a target, but the demands of Swansea when it came to the financial structure of the deal meant a move could not take place.

He said: “We’ll have a decent budget but you look at some of the players they’ve got: Brannagan ( Oxford ) six or seven grand a week.

“They took (Kyle) Joseph. We were in the market for Joseph and got blown out of the water. They wanted £5,500 a week coverage for him.”

And the UK doesn’t choose any venues in Wales or Northern Ireland. Six in Sngmand and one in Scotland.

I was going to say something of the ridiculous coverage of the commonwealth games focussing primarily on England when Wales won two medals, they weren’t even mentioned.

You would have thought the inclusive focus of the BBC and of course the ‘United kingdom’ those days are over. Lucky we are not a country of colour eh ?

Supporters Trust Update
at 03:51 11 Aug 2022

The Swans Trust held its first board meeting of the 2022/23 season at the Swansea.com stadium on Monday 8th August.

One of its first duties was to appoint officers for the coming season. A few days previously our current Supporter Director Terry Sinnett officially informed the board officers that he would be stepping down from his SD role and also the Trust Board. He stated in his written resignation;

“It is with a very heavy heart I’d like to advise the Swans Trust board that I’ve decided to step down from my role as Supporter Director and member of the Swansea City Supporters’ Trust Board. When I was unexpectedly elected to the SD role last year, my aim was to successfully represent the views of the board, the membership and the wider fan base, with the club. I hope I have done that. I have fully engaged with the club and have endeavoured to inform our members and fans details of those discussions though my regular SD updates, and the minutes of the monthly Trust Board meetings, which are shown on the Trust’s website.

“This has been a really difficult decision to make and made with much sadness. I was 70 years young recently and feel this is an appropriate time to step back and enjoy the rest of my remaining retirement years without undue commitments. I have, despite a few difficult months, thoroughly enjoyed the experience of representing the fans of our club, that we all love through good and bad. That work has been done with the interest of both the Trust and the club at heart. It should not be forgotten that the Trust Board is made up of volunteers who are fans and give up an incredible amount of their time to achieve its aims.

“It has been an absolute privilege and honour to be the Trust’s Supporter Director and I will cherish the experience forever. I just wish it had happened some years ago. Being a fan and supporter since 1962, having the opportunity of seeing how the club works at first hand and meeting those working so hard behind the scene has been inspiring.

“I have received nothing but the very greatest respect, help and assistance from the clubs’ senior management and staff. They are a credit to the club and our city, and we are in safe hands under their management.

“The newly elected Trust Board will be working harder than ever to promote the Trust and the benefits of having an organisation that represents the fans in partnership with the club. It is a great team, superbly led by chair Dave Dalton, and will go from strength to strength, as will our club.

“Thank you all for your help, support and assistance over the last 12 months. Good luck, stay safe and take care.”

The Swans Trust would like to place on record it’s sincere thanks to Terry for all his time, hard work and professionalism provided to the organisation since he joined the board three years ago. Over the past year Terry took over the role of Supporter Director which escalated still further the time he needed to commit to ensure the voice of our supporters could be heard within the club and the boardroom. We are all going to miss Terry in an official capacity but I’m sure we will be able to catch up with him again around the stadium and local hostelries on match days. Have a great retirement Terry. It’s fully deserved.

With Terry’s announcement the Trust Board duly invited other elected members to put themselves forward for election as officers for the upcoming season and we can now confirm the following appointments for 2022/23:



Supporter Director – Sian Davies

Associate Director – Ceri Stone

Chair – Dave Dalton

Vice Chair – Chris Golledge

Treasurer – Howell Williams



Elected Members:

Howard Corder

Cath Dyer

Diane Hughes

Ceri Morgan

Rupert Thomas



Paul Barrett has once again kindly agreed to continue as our Trust Secretary.



The new Trust Board then went on to consider all the co-opted applications that had been received over the past two weeks and after due deliberation it is pleased to announce the following Trust members will be joining the board for the coming season:



Roger Goodwin

Adam Lewis

Paul Meller

Tony Sharpe

James Williams



They have all been selected as we believe they will provide the board with valuable expertise in a number of key areas to help the Trust deliver its core responsibilities to members and supporters over the coming season.

Over the coming weeks we will be confirming the structure of our sub-groups and updating our website with profiles for all the incoming board members. And as usual a full transcript of our meeting (alongside all our other board minutes) will soon be available on our website

Sheffield Wednesday U21 defeat Swansea City U21
at 15:50 8 Aug 2022

2-1.

From the OS.

Swansea City Under-21s fell to defeat in their first game of the Professional Development League season against 10-man Sheffield Wednesday.

The Swans had trailed to an early Luke Cook strike at the interval, although the hosts had seen Murtada Al-Jahadhmy dismissed just before the break after receiving a second yellow card.

The Swans levelled through Josh Thomas within four minutes of the restart and looked on course for at least a share of the spoils at Stocksbridge.

However, the Owls overcame their numerical disadvantage as David Agbontohoma netted what turned out to be the winner with just four minutes remaining.

The Swans hade made a dominant start in south Yorkshire, with Thomas just unable to turn home a Zane Myers’ cross, before the hosts took the lead with their first real chance.

Al-Jahadhmy got in behind the visiting defence and squared for debutant Cook to shrug off his marker and slot home.

Swansea responded well, Tarrelle Whittaker and Thomas going close but being denied by Pierce Charles in the Wednesday goal.

Remy Mitchell denied Cook a second at the other end before the hosts were reduced to 10 as Al-Jahadhmy picked up a second booking and saw red for a foul on Whittaker.

Swansea took advantage within minutes of the restart, Thomas racing onto a fine pass from Filip Lissah and slotting the ball beyond Charles to level the scores.

The visitors kept pushing, Whittaker forcing Charles into yet another save before the Swans had a goal chalked off for offside.

Josh Carey was unable to convert a great chance as time ticked down, and the hosts made Swansea pay for failing to take their chances as Agbontohoma dispatched a fine strike into the net from a Jay Glover cross.

Coventry v Rotherham
at 20:19 7 Aug 2022

Someone will be putting their hands in their pockets for this postponement. But when you look at the pitch compared to days of old ?

Coventry's scheduled match against Rotherham has been postponed due to an 'unsafe and unplayable' pitch at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

The teams were due to meet at the home of the Sky Blues - who share the stadium with Premiership Rugby outfit Wasps - at 3pm on Sunday, but following a pitch inspection by the EFL and a local referee on Saturday evening, the fixture was postponed.
