Swanwick made the trip to Eastwood CFC on the back of a disappointing result in the previous week at Real United and were held 0-0.

On the previous encounter Swanwick dominated the home fixture, however, this draw was a sign that Eastwood are now beginning to find their feet.

The visitors played with the wind on their backs in the first half and looked dangerous on the attack, but Eastwood managed to deal with some very nervy moments and kept the Swans at bay.

With Andy White through on goal many of the home fans had their head in their hands. However, the Eastwood defence performed heroics to track him down

Andy Fretwell in the home goal was showing the signs of form that has been getting him rave reviews and he was determined to keep the clean sheet that has eluded Eastwood this season.

The second half was more of the same with Swanwick dominating play on the attack, trusting that the back four could deal with any counter attacks.

Matthew Phillips on the Swans wing was the closest player to breaking the deadlock when he had a shot cleared off the line.

A point for each team will see both team disappointed for their own reasons but both clubs will have put in a good shift taking them into the festive period.

Swanwick will host Pinxton on December 27th in a local derby that Swanwick hope will attract a good crowd.
