Dear Myron, Please find below the latest page of Crystal Spheres.        Myron as a boy also took the usual interest in the rough and ready village soccer and cricket and his father often took him to see ‘The Swans’- Swansea Town, later called Swansea City.  At the time they included Mel Charles, the younger brother of the great John Charles and also Herbie Williams.  Some years later, John Toshack joined the club as player manager and took the team from League Division 4 to League Division 1 (the top division in those days) between 1978 and 1982.  Toshack was born in Cardiff in 1949 where his football career started in 1965.  After four years at Cardiff, Toshack had become known internationally and Liverpool took him on in 1970 to become Kevin Keegan’s goal scoring partner for the next few years and resulting in FA Cup and League Championship wins.  Between 1978 and 1984, Toshack returned to Wales to manage the Swans at the Vetch and as a player also scored 25 goals there.  He now manages the Welsh national side.     Kerry

OK, many thanks indeed!
