Club Statement - Apology

Club Statement - Apology

The club statement read:

With regard to the unfortunate events at the end of yesterday's Football League Trophy Final at the Millennium Stadium, Swansea City Football Club would like to apologise unreservedly for any offence caused, particularly to Cardiff City Football Club and its supporters.

In the euphoric atmosphere following the presentation of the trophy certain players, caught up in the moment, picked up articles thrown from individuals in the crowd without realising the offensive nature of some of these items.

The players concerned, Alan Tate and Lee Trundle, wish to personally apologise to all those offended by their actions. Both players stress that no malice was intended.

Once again, Swansea City Football Club apologise for any distress caused on a day when nearly 30,000 of its fans had a marvellous day out, with little or no incident. South Wales Police has applauded the supporters for their good natured and orderly behaviour on the day.

We would like to thank the people of Cardiff for their warm welcome and their help in making the day a memorable one.

one of the greatest in our history? I don't think so mate, all promotions beat it. The golden years, championship in 2000, promotion last season etc. Cardiff would have been in trouble as well but probably just not as much, the media will probably take it as disrespect seeing as the final was hosted there in such a great stadium. It was harmless fun from Trundle but he should have known better and there was no need it of it because he could be in a lot of trouble.

i said it was "ONE" OF THE GREATEST days in our clubs history and if you were a true fan you would defend trundle even though it was just harmless fun and the papers are probably paying the faw so they can have something to write about!!
