IT was raining heavily, and there were long queues — but that didn't put off Swans fans looking to book a bus seat for the journey to Wembley.

The queues began early in the morning, but such has been the demand that fans were happy to endure the miserable weather.

Father-of-one Govan Bodimeade, from Llangyfelach, was one of those to wait patiently in the rain.

He said: "There was a lot of rain, and it was freezing cold, but I had to get one of the coaches.

"I ended up having to wait an hour, but I got the seats which was what I wanted."

"I went down on the off chance, because I didn't know if they would be taking bookings. I joined the queue, and it was a wait, but I just want to get to Wembley."

Mr Bodimeade added that the last few years have been amazing for the club.

"The journey through the football leagues has just been a fantastic time for supporters," he said.

"No-one has expected it, and this final is the first time in one hundred years we have been in such a final, so I have to be there. It is a one-off. I am going up with the season-ticket holders I know, and we just can't wait to get there.

"It makes the wait in the rain all worthwhile."
