Just came across this photo of an old away FA cup tie in which the Swansea were victorious, and realised that I visited this iconic ground shortly before the owners expelled the home club in 1988,

Oh dear! My little quiz went wrong because I couldn't find a way to post the image without the page that would give the location away! But it is still an interesting photograph even knowing which ground is involved.

I was there. If I remember correctly Oxford United fans were there too and caused a little trouble.



I knew I kept programmes for some reason. πŸ˜‰

yes I was there as well Dai Gwythers 21st Birthday , he scored a hat trick I think, yes fans caused some trouble throwing bottles into the stand at us , some breaking on the stanchions and showering us with glass.

Dai Gwyther talks about that match in this book...


Memories include that of David Gwyther, who recalls the Oxford City 1 Swansea Town 5 FA Cup Second Round match on December 6, 1969.

Glad someone else remembered, my memory isn’t what it used to be. I also think I remember being in the clubhouse afterwards with the team, celebrating, but then again that might have been Somerton Park. πŸ€” πŸ™„

Ah yes 5-1

Can't remember the years but a 3-2 win and then I think a couple of years after was 5-1.

I was up the other end

Not sure if you know more than what you say.

Yes I was in the Clubhouse after the game, and at old Somerton park.....seems there are a few of us here from that era..

Anyone remember a crowd of us walking through to the Oxford game chanting and singing, and coppers approached us and warned us to behave ourselves.........they picked the wrong ones to have a word with.

After winning 5-1 at Oxford City, we were then drawn away to Leeds in Jan 1970, but that's another story πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

The bottom picture must be from the first game, as Alan Williams is number 4 , I remember them playing in hoops, and they had a little winger who did cause us havoc for a while,
