'OPERATION SEARCH AND FIND THE BIRDS':

'Holla Maswaiswai holla'

It is important to build on our foundation that has allowed us to be re-united with some of our long forgotten heroes, the likes of the father of Swallows, Mr Strike Makhata, one of the three who founded the club in 1947.

I, therefore, wish to urge all branches and individual members to go on a non-stop search for our heroes of yesteryear, this will ensure that our history is documented and celebrated correctly.

The team is pushing hard to finish the PSL season in second place, we urge all our supporters to come out in their numbers to support the team, so the club can begin to rightfully claim its place at the top of South Africa soccer.

Together Maswaimani together!
