Sway U16s clinch title in cracking play-off match
Sway U16s 3 Fordingbridge Turks U16s 2
20th May 2016
A good crowd at Sway's Jubilee Field ground saw the Under 16s from Sway Junior Football Club win the Testway Under 16s Division 2 Title by beating Fordingbridge Turks. In a cracking game, the visitors dominated the first half and Sway were grateful to be just 1-0 down at the break. Things got worse for the home supporters when Fordingbridge scored again early after the restart.
But somehow Sway managed to keep out further opportunities and then pulled one back just as the game seemed to be slipping away. Leading goalscorer James Marshall latched on to a through ball out of defence and struck a low shot under the keeper for Sway’s first. This goal changed the game as Sway began to find their rhythm while Fordingbridge began to tire.
Marshall levelled the scores after he burst through a cluster of defenders before arrowing in a left foot strike. The final 5 minutes were end to end, both teams being roared on by the large Jubilee Field crowd. As thoughts turned to a penalty shoot-out, Sway grabbed the winner as Marshall evaded a posse of defenders to cross magnificently to the onrushing Norton who bravely headed in from close range. An extraordinary finish to a great season for Sway Under 16s.
