Football career

Swain began his career with Londoners Chelsea, making his league debut in 1974. His most successful season with the club came in 1976-77, when his strike partnership with Steve Finnieston helped Eddie McCreadie's young side win promotion back to the First Division. He remained with Chelsea until 1979, when they were relegated, and then signed for Aston Villa for £100,000.

With Villa, Swain was switched to full-back and won the league championship and European Cup in consecutive seasons. He left Villa in 1983 and had spells with Nottingham Forest, Portsmouth and Crewe Alexandra. He later moved into management, enjoying stints with Grimsby Town and Wigan Athletic, and currently the England under-16s.

Between 2002 and 2004, Swain was Director of Football at Thomas Telford School.
