Baby to be named after Swans legend Alan Tate
WHAT better way to show your love for the Swans than by naming your first-born son after a club legend?
That is what 25-year-old Tim Dawe from Llanelli is planning on doing after deciding with his fiancee Jade Farrow to name their newborn Tate after Swans hero Alan.
Electrical engineer Tim said: "I have been a massive Swans fan ever since my dad Leighton took me to watch them play Halifax Town. We decided two weeks ago to name him Tate. Jade asked me if I would like to name him after Alan.
"He is Mr Swansea really. He has been there such a long time, you couldn't imagine him playing for another club now."

And Tim has already got Tate's career path planned out for him.
He said: "He will without doubt be brought up a Swans fan and hopefully a Swans player."
After spending his youth career with Manchester United, the defender has gone onto make more than 250 appearances for the Swans in the past eight years.
Jade is due to give birth to Tate in November.
