Swansea City football film tells rags-to-riches story

Fans of Swansea City who saved the club from near extinction and put them on the road to Premier League glory tell their story in a new documentary film.

Directed by Marc Evans of Hinterland fame, Jack to a King shows how close the club came to going out of business before supporters stepped in to take ownership.

In this extract, fans Steve Penny and David Morgan recall a last-ditch bid to raise cash to buy Swansea City from businessman Tony Petty.

The movie goes on general release on 12 September.
