TEAMtalk: How did you come to support the Swans and what are your favourite memories from your time as a fan?

Jack: My old man took me to Swansea City game when I was barely old enough to walk…it was at Wembley when we won the League Cup and gained promotion. I’ll remember for as long as I live, I’m sure…

TEAMtalk: Who have been your favourite five players for your club? (Historically or currently)

Gylfi Sigurdson playing for Swansea

JackLee Trundle, Alan Curtis, Ashley Williams, Jan Molby, Leon Britton, Gary Monk, Alan Tate, Gylfi…too many to name!

TEAMtalk: What are your hopes for the rest of the season and what do you make of the current side?

Jack: I love what Steve Cooper is doing! I was worried we might just tumble away after we got relegated..but I’m proud of our resolve. It’d be amazing to get promote, but I love the Championship to be honest. It’s the maddest league in the world…so I’m happy either way to be honest…haha

TEAMtalk: Have you got a soft spot for another team and why?

JackSouthampton…my dad had this old video called ‘Unbelievable’ and it was all Matt Le Tissier’s goals. I watched it when I was a toddler and thought it was brilliant…I watch it on YouTube now and I still think it’s brilliant. When the Saints go Marching On –  I always look out for their number…

TEAMtalk: What’s going on with you as a band at the moment?

JackWe got a new album coming out in the summer, I hope it will blow everyone’s minds the way it has blown and morphed mine…uppa Swans x
