The Royal Marine Commando Display Team abseiled off the top of the North Stand at the Liberty Stadium before kick-off and presented Pete with the match ball.

 It was an incredibly proud moment for the team and an extra special moment for ‘On Ice’ Team Doctor Meinir and Team Physio Brian as their son was the Forces Mascot and joined Pete on the pitch for the presentation.

Members of the Royal Marines Association, cadets and volunteers joined the team for a bucket collection in aid of Help for Heroes.

The team would like to say a very big thank you to Swansea City AFC for their incredible support.
