Home defeat for Swanwick PR

Swanwick PR lost 2-1 to Allenton on Saturday.

For a fourth game in a row, the Swans conceded the opening goal of the game. The deadlock was broken in the 20th minute when an Allenton corner was delivered with precision, resulting in a deflected own goal at the back post. Over the years, Allenton and Swanwick have put each other through the mill and this physical affair was no change of that trend.

It was the away side who went in happiest at half time when yet again a well delivered cross resulted in a goal at the back post, after the Allenton winger had ghosted in unmarked.

Swanwick proved again that they are one of the fittest teams in the league and pressed the play throughout the second half.

In total. the home side had the ball in the back of the net four times, all being struck off by the officials for a variety of reasons.

Swanwick did manage to claim a goal with about 25 minutes of play left on the clock.

A man of the match performance from the Swans target man Andy White was rewarded with a tap-in from close range, leaving the game on tenterhooks until the final whistle.

With only one point in four games, the Swans will feel hard done by with their start to the campaign.

Improvements are being made both on and off the pitch to ensure that the club stays on track in a bid to make a positive impression on the Central Midlands League.

This Saturday sees the Swans play host to Southwell City FC.

The game kicks off at 3pm.
