POTP Episode 9 ‘Jack to a King’ Film, the Swansea City Story

jack-to-a-king.jpg

This week on POTP I spoke to Abigail Davies from the film ‘Jack to a King’ which documents the unique and astounding rise of the Swansea City Football Club.

In 2003 the Swans had to win a game against Hull City to avoid relegation from League 2 into the Conference and out of the Football League for the first time in 83 years.

 With no money, a ridiculously greedy and ill informed owner and struggling team the Swans have in just over 10 years now found themselves in the English Premier League. 

 Abigail tells us about the story and making the movie!
