Johnson's double not enough for Reserves
Sway Reserves 2 AFC Burton 4
15th November 2014
With the first team's away game called off the Reserves were able to call upon the services of player-manager BenJohnson. Ben put Sway ahead in the first half with a half volley but some sloppy defending allowed Burton to score three first half replies and take command of the game. But the Reds were much improved in the second half with Under 18 James Langdown impressing on his senior debut. The game finished 4-2 with Johnson scoring a second from a corner with a bullet header.

Ferndown Sports 5 Sway 0

Sway 2 Winchester Castle 0
Goals from Ben Haffenden and Josh Thomson gave Sway an excellent league win against Winchester Castle who beat the Reds by the same scoreline in the away fixture back in September. With nine points from six games Sway are moving up the Division 3 table.
Bill's hat-trick seals Pickford Cup win
Sway 6 AFC Burton 3
Sway got off to a comfortable start with an early goal from James Chilcott and soon went further ahead when Matt Hillyar ran in from the right and slotted past the advancing 'keeper.
But the second half was a different story as Burton resumed with much greater intent and were soon on level terms. But the introduction of the late arriving Bill Stride made the difference for the Reds as he added the cutting edge to our attacking moves. He restored the lead before Chilcott made it 4-2. However, Burton continued to threaten and pulled one back to make it 5-2. But Bill had the last laugh and claimed his hat-trick with a tap in to put Sway into the last 16 with an away tie against either Pennington or Parley.
