Peter Swan played over 500 games and worked for some of the biggest names in football. Signing for Leeds United in 1984, he broke transfer records at two of his next three clubs - Hull City, Port Vale and Plymouth Argyle. This is the incredible story of a journeyman pro playing just below the big time and the big money. A hard player who lived a hard life, Swan's career was littered with bizarre twists and turns. Before the Autoglass Trophy final in 1993, he partied until dawn, staggered out onto the pitch and was named Man of the Match. Nine days later, he went to bed early in preparation for the Division Two play-off final - and was sent off as his side were defeated by West Bromwich Albion. While at Port Vale, he met a local lad by the name of Robbie Williams. The two became incorrigible drinking partners - with often hilarious results. But no matter how hard he partied off the field, he still set himself the highest standards in his professional life. Swan fell foul of managers and referees alike, pickingup 10 red cards and countless bookings. But on the other side of the coin is a caring man who always took time out for charity work. After retiring in 2000, he initially struggled to come to terms with life outside football, but has since become a cult figure in Hull, where he now commentates on Hull City's matches. A larger-than-life character with no regrets, Peter Swan tells the remarkable story of the highs and lows of his 16-year career.
