Sheerwater 3 Swans 4

Swans edged an entertaining pre-season friendly against a good looking Sheerwater side that gained promotion last season as Division One Champions.

After Sheerwater had taken the lead, Justin Hemmings equalised from close-in, before James Robertson headed Swans ahead just before the break. Alvin Sarmiento made it 3-1 from the penalty-spot after Gus Lukuni had been fouled. Sheerwater made it 3-2, but a fine finish from the edge of the box by Louis Blake restored Swans’ two-goal lead. Sheerwater were awarded two penalties in the last five minutes, but after they had scored the first, a fine save from Kevin Manuel, who had a great game in goal, kept out the second and preserved Swans’ win.
