Under 18s make New Milton work for victory
New Milton U18s 4 Sway U18s 2
27th January 2015
The Under 18s put in a good first-half performance under the lights at Fawcetts Field and deserved to take the lead through Ben Haffenden following a number of promising attacks. Strong defending kept the Hampshire Division 2 side at bay and gave Sway a half-time lead in this friendly match.
But New Milton came out with more determination in the second half and soon drew level. Sway now had to fight a rear guard action and conceded a further three goals including a penalty. Aidan Lacy gave the visiting fans some cheer in the cold evening, virtually walking the ball round the 'keeper to make the final score 4-2.
Lacy helps U18s to hard fought win at Castle
Winchester Castle U18s 1 Sway U18s 3
25th January 2015
A brace from Aidan Lacy and a third from Glen Corbin gave the Under 18s a hard fought league win at Winchester.
At 0-0 Sway were reduced to ten men when Harrison was dismissed. But Corbin put Sway ahead with his first goal of the season following a goalmouth scramble. Sway soaked up the pressure but Castle equalised through a well-placed volley from a corner.
Aidan Lacy then stepped up with two goals. The first from a 25 yard free-kick; the second a cute finish following a one-on-one tussle with a Castle defender.
The win avenges a 2-0 defeat at Winchester back in September and, together with the 2-0 win at Jubilee Field in October, gives Sway six points from the their three league games.
With just six teams in the league the fixtures have been extended so that teams play each other three times. Lacy has netted six times this season, bagging a brace on three occasions.
Sway suffer home defeat to fellow league strugglers
Sway 0 Merley Cobham Sports 2
24th January 2015
Sway were second best in this bottom-of-the-table clash at Jubilee Field. Merley went ahead just after Sway's best move was thwarted with a fine save to tip the ball over the bar. The game was effectively over just 20 seconds into the second half as the visitors breezed past Sway's defence straight from the kick off. Merley celebrated their first points of the season but are still propping up the league and four points behind Sway who are level with Christchurch Reserves on seven points.
U18's Aidan Lacy & James Langdown had their first team debuts.
