EPISODE THREE

WYNDHAM EVANS



This week, we're throwing it back and going old school.

Wyndham Evans, a Llanelli-born Swansea City legend, started his professional career with the club in 1971 earning just £20 a week.

After playing as an amateur with Stoke City, it was then that the relationship between Wyndham and The Vetch began. With the rise through the football leagues around the corner, the solid and reliable right-back had a massive impact on the club’s climb to the top. Winning three promotions in four seasons and playing two seasons in the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup.

Wyndham also had a brief spell away from the club as player-manager of Llanelli Town, before returning to the Swans. After 426 appearances and 21 goals for The Swans, Wyndham left the club to become a player-manager at Pembroke Borough, as well as managing Carmarthen Town. Today, Wyndham is still seen as one of the club’s heroic players and has made an impression through his enthusiastic commentary on Swans TV.

Playing under MBE John Toshack, Wyndham shared the pitch with many of Swansea City's Wall of Famers. Tune in to listen to stories shared from the Vetch Field era of Robbie James, Alan Curtis, Jeremy Charles and so many more legendary players.
