Fan's Eye City: Swansea City in the Age of the Premiership
In the summer of 1992, British football stood on the threshold of wholesale changes that were to radically alter the nature of the professional game. At the same time, Swansea City were a pale shadow of the club that had been a nursery of outstanding talent in the 1950s and had charged spectacularly to the top of the old Football League under John Toshack in the early 1980s.
The Vetch Field was the home ground of Swansea City until the Liberty Stadium opened in 2005. It opened in 1912 and at its peak held over 30,000. However, at the time of its closure the ground held around 12,000. It was named due to the vetch, a form of cabbage, that was grown on its surface at the time. The last game at the Vetch was an FAW Premier Cup Final against Wrexham.
