Found two nice clips of Chris Swailes on you tube one called
Chris Swailes' Perfect Swansong |FATV
& Dunstan Uts 2-0 West Auckland Town
Both are from 2012. The first ones is an interview where he talks briefly about Ipswich & the second one is the the FA Vase final at Wembley where he has a goal disallowed.
Made 17 appearances for Dunston UTS in 2013/14 season so is still going strong at the sprightly age of 43.

Looking at Rothmans, Bridlington made the Vase Final in 1993 (not 92), but Chris is not included in the team that played in the final. He may have played in earlier rounds as played a total of 5 games for the Yorkshire side A picture of him on the Bridlington website - http://www.bridtownafc.com/playersprogressing.htm

I have emailed Soccerbase on this also. The figure quoted for Swailes` transfer from Doncaster to Ipswich in 1995 is incorrect. Accessing George Burley`s list of transfers at http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/main.jhtml?xml=/sport/football/john_ley/sftips.xml shows that only £150000 was paid for him, not £225000. I hope you will be reviewing this information. Thanks.
