Copied off Facebook...
Message to Swansea City supporters. Sorry to convey one of your most loyal lifetime supporters 81 year old Roy Griffiths, was attacked and had his shoulder broken while walking to his car after Saturdays game by a few local so called supporters. Roy played local football up to 50 years old, a fine player, a close friend of Mel Nurse, and most importantly a credit to the community, and to Swansea City football. Anyone with info or witnessed the attack contact the authorities. The incident happened on the junction to Hafod and the new by-pass..

You might think I've forgotten, but one day, when you least expect it, my time will come.

Named and shamed is not enough. Should be placed in stocks and their backsides a target for shooting practice in the warm up. Then led around the pitch at half time.

Where were the police when this was happening? Normally plenty about after a game.

Lost for words. 81 yr old man attacked, how proud must the attackers feel and how scared would they be if they got named and shamed on social media, I bet they'd be too scared to show themselves at a swans game for a start.

Hope he gets well soon.

I saw someone lying on the grass with a few people around him (no emergency services at the point) and assumed he'd had a turn.

Hope they find the scum who did it.

Maybe CCTV from the petrol station might have something.

Hope he recovers, these people are out there and not just at the game, someone must have an idea who they are.

Passed the incident in the same place, saw the poor old chap on the ground not moving an inch. I must admit my first instinct was heart attack - what a disgraceful thing to have happened.

Wasn’t by that roundabout, from what I saw from my Zeelo Coach home to Gorseinon at 5.20pm there was lots of police there after the incident had happened...

They have to be found. CCTV must have caught them walking, especially as you say, one had a black sling. Lock them up and ban them from the ground forever. B@stards.

I would have thought though that someone with a black arm sling would show up on TV somewhere or perhaps someone can remember such a person near them in the ground ?

Yes, I saw that too just after crossing the road by the roundabout. Like you, I assumed he'd just fallen or something. You wouldn't assume a man that had been attacked especially by some of our own if reports are correct. Why ffs? Beyond belief. Hope he's OK and recovering and that those responsible are caught and appropriately dealt with.

This is quite literally sickening.

Somebody must know who did this.

Poor man will be affected for the rest of his life, physically and mentally.

Yes.

Should be known, or at least suspected, by someone.

When there's so much outrage the police usually come up with the goods.

Scumbags !

Get well soon to the old gent.

Maybe the club can help, if they were so called supporters, they might be on the CCTV in and around The Liberty.Just a thought like, I'm sure the police have already thought of this.

Spoke to Roy earlier today he is still in pain & has to go back to hospital on Thursday for a review but needs a operation at some time. But those who know Roy will realise he is still positive & will be back at the Liberty as soon as he can.

They'll be caught without doubt. The pure nature of the crime will ensure they are. They WILL be on CCTV around that area. Hope they go down for it, and they probably will. Cvnts.

What was the reason for the assault? I hope he makes a full recovery. Perhaps the club could show their support of Roy and offer him some form of hospitality for a game later this season. Maybe the Trust could get involved to make this happen.

Anyone who knows who did this and are keeping quiet are as bad as the people who committed the deed IMO. The 'no snitching' rule doesn't exist in cases such as this.

I would have thought anyone seeing an attack on an old man would have gone straight in let alone "snitched". They can't be football gans surely? not every person walking near the ground necessarily goes in.

I saw a crowd of people around someone on the floor and I thought he'd had a heart attack and moved on not wanting to gawp.

Shocking that there are actually c*nts who woud do this to anyone, let alone a man in his 80's. Get well soon Roy.

That brewery pub is opposite there, surely sommeone saw something?
