Only three extra large Swans shirts left as store sells out following fans festive rush for kit
ANYONE hoping for a Swansea City shirt will have a long wait unless they wear an extra large size.
The official Swans shop at the Liberty Stadium has not had any home or away kits for sale since Christmas after a festive rush to the tills by fans.
The only team shirts left for this season are three extra large home strips after demand by supporters saw kit flying off the shelves.
Energy Saving Trust monitoring officer Lynsey Dewitt was one of those trying to get a Swans shirt for her husband Adam's 30th birthday.

Mrs Dewitt said: "I think it is madness that you are unable to get a shirt anywhere in Wales, not even in the stores or shops in Swansea or the stadium or supporters club, and for the best team in the Premier League too.
"My husband has been a big Swansea City supporter all his life, he married me, an Irish girl, and he's even got me supporting them now too.
"It's his 30th birthday on February 25 this year and I'm trying to get him the shirt, so he can wear it on the match days wherever he may be.
I accidentally shrunk and dyed his other jersey in the wash a few weeks ago, and he was absolutely gutted.
"I just wanted to get him a nice pressie for his 30th, but I am shocked that their shirts are out of stock and with a few months to go before the end of the season how they can let their fans down by not having the shirt there to purchase?
"I just believe that they should order more in to accommodate their supporters, and thought if it came from the media that maybe something could happen," she added.
A member of staff at the official Swansea City store said: "We have sold out of home and away shirts.
"It has been like this since Christmas.
"We have only get three extra large home shirts for sale now.
"With it being the centenary year they have been really popular.
"We have already ordered our shirts now for next season."
