The Fall and Rise of Swansea City FC Gareth Walsh, 11/2/14

History of Swansea City FC • In July 2001, after relegation to the third tier of English football, Swansea City FC was sold to managing director, Mike Lewis for £1. • After gaining promotion to the Premier League in the 2011/12 season, Swansea became the first Welsh team to play in the Premier League since it’s beginning in 1992. • In the 2012/13 season, Swansea won the Capital One Cup, beating Bradford City 5-0 in the final, held at Wembley Stadium. This was the club’s first major trophy in its history.

The Fall • The 1996/97 season was arguably Swansea’s worst season in league football, winning just 8 out of 45 matches. • At the end of the 2002/2003 season, they were in the relegation zone in the third tier of English Football. • They had to win their last home game against Hull City to keep their football league status. • They won the match 4 - 2 with James Thomas scoring a hat-trick.

The Rise • Swansea prepared for success as they built a new stadium called the Liberty Stadium in 2005. • In the same season, Swansea were promoted to the second tier of English football following an 18 game unbeaten run. • Swansea remained in the second tier for 6 years until the 2010/11 season, where they reached the play-off finals against Reading and won the match 4-2 with Scott Sinclair scoring a hat-trick, gaining them promotion to the Premier League. • The 2012/13 season was arguably their most successful season in their history, finishing in the top half of the table and winning their first major trophy.

This is because it was Sir Alex Ferguson’s last match in charge of Manchester United.

Since then… • Swansea remain in the highest tier of English football, and are currently 10th in the table. • Swansea sacked Michael Laudrup as manager 18 months after their Capital One Cup success and appointed Garry Monk as player/manager. • Swansea qualified for the Europa League after winning the Capital One Cup, and played their first European match in 22 years, beating Malmö FF 4-0.
