11 More Photos Of The Vetch

Vital Swansea brings a few of many exclusive photos of how the Vetch Field looks today thanks to site member Richard Copp.

We left the Vetch last year when we moved our new 20,500 all-seater stadium at the start of the 2005/06 season, capping our final year off at the Vetch Field with promotion and the FAW Premier Cup.

Richard Copp took around 70 photographs as well as a few video clips of the 92 year-old ground and here's a few: (hopefully we can add more soon)

If the pitch could have been looked after then we could have used it as our training ground? - until the Council had decided upon it's future.
