Hall Of Fame

My aim in this section is to champion some of the best talent to come out of Swansea and the surrounding areas. This list is by no means conclusive as I am sure there are many worthy recipients of the title I have omitted through naivety. More will be added to as and when I receive any suggestions. I have also included some not born in the area but who have had great links and achievements associated with it.
