SWALLOWS entertained ‘Muchty in a vital league encounter for both teams.

On a bright but breezy day, the early play was fairly even.

However, on 14 minutes, the hosts took the lead when Roberts broke free on the right and his immaculate cross was superbly struck on the half-volley by Wishart, who found the bottom left hand corner of the net.

With wind advantage, the visitors pressed for the equaliser but, despite numerous goalmouth scrambles, Swallows held firm until half-time.

The second half saw both teams go for the next goal, which would prove vital.

It was the home team who got it when, after a flowing move, an Ireland cross was controlled by Jardine, who fired a low shot under the ‘keeper to give Swallows a two-goal lead.

‘Muchty then threw caution to the wind to try and get back in the game.

However, this led to gaps appearing in the visitors’ defence and Swallows should have increased their lead, missing several decent chances.

Match day sponsor was David Wilson, fish merchant.
