Swansea Legend Keith Todd passes away aged 80

Ex Swansea Town player Keith Todd has sadly died aged 80.

Todd was part of the Swansea Town squad that reached the FA Cup semi-final in 1964.

Born in Clydach, the forward made 245 appearances for Swansea in a space of 7 years, between 1959 and 1968.

Scoring 96 goals for Swansea, he also earned a Wales under-23 cap in a match against Northern Ireland in Vetch Field.

He was also a reserve for the senior Welsh squad in Russia, but didn’t manage to play.

Todd started his career playing for local club Clydach United, before moving to Pembroke Borough AFC and then Swansea Town.

In the 1964 FA Cup, Todd scored three times in two legs against Stoke in the fifth round.

He then played a crucial role in the squad that beat Liverpool to establish a place in the semi-finals, where they lost to Preston.
