IF you want someone to hold a football skills session, who are you going to call?

Former Swans star Lee Trundle would be at the top of most people's list. So his was the first name on the team sheet when Macron opened its first sportswear superstore in Neath Abbey. The Swansea City ambassador entertained the masses with a bit of help from club mascot Cyril the Swan.

"We had somewhere in the region of 500 to 1,000 kids through the store during the day with some teams playing outside on a specially hired pitch," said sales director Ray Pennock. "The ages ranged from under six through to under 13. Gregor Zabret and Oliver Davies from Swansea's under-21 team held a goalkeeping clinic."
