Swansea City Supporters Alliance demand unity from fans

A meeting of the newly-formed Swansea City Supporters Alliance last night heard fans call for the removal of club chairman Huw Jenkins.

More than a hundred people turned out for the event including Swans Supporters Trust chairman Alan Lewis and the club's supporter director Stuart McDonald.

The Alliance was set up by disgruntled fans, angry at the club's position in the Premier League's relegation zone.


Concern has also been voiced over Huw Jenkins - the alliance believes his position is "untenable" and want him to leave.

They are also concerned about the sale of the club to its American owners and the future of the Liberty Stadium.

Alliance vice chairman Rhys Hughes spoke to Claire Pearson last night, first of all explaining why the meeting was organised:



Gower MP Tonia Antoniazzi was unable to attend the meeting but sent her researcher Adam Davies to read out a letter she has written to Swansea Council regarding the future of the Liberty Stadium.

He spoke to Claire Pearson:



Swansea City Supporters Alliance chairman Kevin Evans said they were unaware of how many people would attend last night's meeting (Feb1). He was surprised by the turn-out.
