Although the former Swansea City Chairman was eventually allowed in to enjoy his pre-match meal and take his seat in the directors box – a Swans spokesman said that the initial delay was down to his name not being on the guest list of Cardiff.

Hamer was a guest of Cardiff director Keith Harris on what he says was the 50th anniversary of the first time he watched the Swans – speaking to the newspaper, Hamer said “The incident has rather spoiled what should have been a great day for me.

“The day marked the 50th anniversary of the first time I saw the Swans, playing against Hull City, but this has left a bitter taste in my mouth.

“I’ve been to the Liberty when Swansea have played Colchester and Southampton and have not had a problem.

“I have been a lifelong supporter of Swansea City, but if you asked me now whether I want to return again I would have to say I don’t know.”

Whilst the Swans statement responded A Swansea City statement said: “There was an initial misunderstanding because Steve’s name was not on the list as a guest of Cardiff City.

“But Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins sorted everything out and Steve was in the boardroom and the directors’ box.”
