JAck Army urged to make Capital One Cup final a family day out to remember
SWANSEA City have sparkled on the pitch and won fans around the country for the quality of their play — now it's the supporters' turn to shine.
With the Jack Army faithful making the trip to Wembley this weekend for the Capital One Cup, police are calling on fans to build on their growing reputation for good behaviour and make it a family day out to remember.
Some 32,000 Jacks both young and old will be heading to London for the final against Bradford.
Superintendent Phil Davies, operational commander for South Wales Police's western division, said: "This is one of the major highlights in the club's history and one that will be remembered by players, staff and fans for a very long time. I hope that this will be complemented by the fans' behaviour.

"The fans' behaviour has been praised not only by the police and club here in Swansea but also by other forces around the country, and I hope that this theme will be continued throughout the day of the final." He said the sight of family groups of home and away fans mixing together had become a common one at the Liberty Stadium, and he hoped that the same spirit would continue against Bradford.
He added:"We want everyone to enjoy the game and have a good day whatever the result, and I hope that the Swansea fans are able to build on their ever growing good behavioural reputation."
The behaviour of Swansea fans last season won praise not just from South Wales Police but from forces including Greater Manchester as well as from clubs such as Bolton, Newcastle and Manchester City, with the Premier League champions describing Swans supporters as "absolutely superb".
