Editor’s
In my addressing notes in this issue I discuss how disillusioned I am about the current situation call on the shareholders who’ve sold us to move on as they’ve lost our trust.

So we have some very strong content for you this time around and still for the bargain price of £1. Slee Stores Sandfields and Neath Road as well as Good News Swansea Market should have this issue by Friday 23rd and the travel club pod will have it after the game on 26th. You can of course buy on match day as well from Rossi’s crossing or the retail park bridge. Merry Christmas all
