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)

Makes me sad seeing our beloved ground in this state!! Miss it more than anything!! Vetch Field 1912-2005
rely sad to see her like that i would rather it would have been ripped down than be crumbling and overgrown
Question: How can you get into the Vetch these days and is this without sneaking in? P.S. Quality pictures you have taken there. I shall never forgot Y Fetch!
ssshhh mun!
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.
