Events[edit]

This is a list of the significant events to occur at the club during the 2009–10 season, presented in chronological order.

May[edit]

June[edit]

  • 2 June: Swansea City completed the signing of Southampton winger Nathan Dyer for a fee of £400,000.[6]
  • 4 June: Swansea City have given boss Roberto Martínez permission to hold talks with Wigan Athletic following the departure of Steve Bruce to Sunderland.[7] Should the deal go ahead, Wigan will pay a sum close to £2 million in compensation.[8]
  • 11 June: Roberto Martínez was set to be unveiled as the new manager of Wigan Athletic at a press conference, but the deal was halted as Martínez failed to mention that he wanted his backroom staff from Swansea too join him.[9] Huw Jenkins had demanded compensation for the backroom staff, and branded Whelan as "unfair and disrespectful."[10][11]
  • 15 June: Swansea and Wigan agree compensation for the loss of Martínez; the club has now confirmed the compensation package with the Premier League outfit for assistant-manager Graeme Jones, chief scout Kevin Reeves, goalkeeping coach Iñaki Bergara and masseur Oscar Brau.[12]
  • 16 June: Defender Matthew Collins signed a new contract extending his stay at Swansea until 2011.[13]
  • 16 June: Swansea City were handed a home tie against Brighton & Hove Albion in the Football League Cup first round.[14]
  • 16 June: Norwich City signed midfielder Owain Tudur Jones on a three-year deal for a sum thought to be in the region of £250,000.[15]
  • 17 June: The fixture list for all championship teams were released on 17 June. Swansea City's first match will be away against newly-crowned League One champions Leicester City at the Walkers Stadium. Swansea's first home game will be against relegated Premier League side Middlesbrough.[16]
  • 18 June: Swansea City announced that they had offered the vacant managerial position to the Portuguese two-time Champions League-winning player Paulo Sousa and had verbally agreed a three-year contract. Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins went on to say, "He's young, bright, enthusiastic and a visionary with extensive knowledge and contacts not only throughout Europe, but world football."[17]
  • 23 June: Eredivisie runners-up Twente will be the first team to face Swansea City in pre-season on 18 July, they will then be playing Spanish side Almería on 1 August at the Liberty Stadium.[18]
  • 23 June: Paulo Sousa returned from Portugal and was officially unveiled as the new Swansea City manager at a press conference held at the Liberty Stadium at 13:30 GMT. He signed a three-year deal. Sousa said, "Together with the fans we can build a strong club, a strong city to be on the map not only in Wales and England, but everywhere."[19][20]
  • 25 June: Swansea City unveiled the online casino, 32Red, as their shirt sponsors for the 2009–10 season. The home and away kits were modeled by defenders Alan Tate and Marcos Painter.[21]
  • 26 June: Midfielder Joe Allen signed a new three-year contract with Swansea that will see him stay until 2012.[22]
  • 26 June: Swansea City rejected a £2.5 million bid from Bolton Wanderers for midfielder Ferrie Bodde.[23]

July[edit]

August[edit]

  • 7 August: Ashley Williams was called up to the Welsh national team to face Montenegro in a Friendly.[33]
  • 8 August: Swansea football league campaign kicked off against Leicester City at the Walkers Stadium, but ended in a 2–1 defeat. However, midfielder Joe Allen suffered a Hamstring injury after 25 minutes.[34]
  • 11 August: Ashley Williams was named in the Championship Team of the Week following his performance against Leicester.[1]
  • 12 August: Swansea were drawn against Scunthorpe United at home in the second round of the League Cup following their 3–0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion.[35]
  • 13 August: Swansea City and the Swansea City Council had come to an agreement to develop a Football academy in Landore in an investment worth over £1m.[36]
  • 18 August: Swansea City rejected a bid for Ferrie Bodde from previous, and now manager of Wigan Athletic, Roberto Martínez. It was understood that the Wigan had offered £4.5 million. However, Swansea Chairman Huw Jenkins went on to say, "Not only have we rejected the bid, but it's an offer we wouldn't even think twice about considering... In fact, the way it is structured – over such a long period of time and appearance related – it doesn't even constitute an offer."[37][38]
  • 22 August: Austrian front-man Besian Idrizaj signed for Swansea City on a two-year deal.[39]
  • 25 August: Swansea City's clash with Scunthorpe ended in controversy as Swansea had captain Garry Monk, Gorka Pintado and Àngel Rangel sent off, whilst striker Stephen Dobbie went off injured. This left Swansea down to just 7 men on the field. Tempers then erupted as debutant Besian Idrizaj was forced to play on despite being injured. The match would have been abandoned according to Football League rules. Football League rules state each side must have at least seven players on the pitch for a game to be played.[40][41]
  • 27 August: Swansea City completed a double swoop and signed club legend Lee Trundle on loan from Bristol City until 1 January 2010 and Craig Beattie joined the Swans from West Bromwich Albion on a three-year deal for a club record deal of £800k.[42]

September[edit]

  • 1 September: Swansea sign Trinidad and Tobago centre back Radanfah Abu Bakr on a three-month deal.[43]
  • 3 September: Lil Fuccillo became Swansea's new Chief Scout, moving from Newcastle United.[44]

  • 28 September: Ferrie Bodde was ruled out for the rest of the season after rupturing a cruciate ligament in his left knee for a second time. Bodde lasted just eight minutes in the 2–1 victory against Sheffield United.[46]
