ASSEMBLY Member and Swansea councillor Peter Black has called for Swans chairman Huw Jenkins to be recognised in the New Year's Honours list.

Following on from the Swans triumph at Wembley, South West Wales member Mr Black said that much of the club's success can be attributed to Jenkins and his "prudent" management.

Writing on his blog he said: "A constant throughout these 10 years has been club chairman, Huw Jenkins.

"His prudent management has helped to put the club on a firm financial footing, while his philosophy and his ability to pick managers has been instrumental both to the Swans' footballing success to the way that they play, which has received universal praise.

"If anybody deserves to be recognised for his contribution to football, to the Swans and to Swansea it is Huw Jenkins.

"Perhaps we should start a campaign to ensure that he gets that recognition in the next honours list."

    Peter Black has no shame. He's found another bandwagon to jump on.
