Best-loved by Swansea City fans, he scored 78 goals in 146 appearances during two spells with the Welsh club.

At 40, Trundle is still going strong for Llanelli Town in the Welsh Football League Division Two and recent lined out in a charity match for the Swansea’s All Stars against Briton Ferry Llansawel over 35s.
