Reserves Stride past Bisterne
Sway Reserves 6 Bisterne United 0
Bournemouth Hayward League Division 1
6th February 2016
A hat-trick from Club top-scorer, Bill Stride, supported by a pair from Matt Hillyer, plus one from Ben Haffenden saw off fellow strugglers Bisterne United in a convincing win at Jubilee Field. Sway scored three in the final ten minutes of the first half, Stride opening with a headed corner and soon adding a second with Hillyar netting just before half-time.
The rout continued straight after the teas and coffees, with Hillyar scoring from 25 yards and Stride finishing off a 50-yard run to complete his hat-trick. The victory was completed with a goal from Ben Haffenden.

Reserves thwarted by Chapel Gate woodwork
Bournemouth Sports Reserves 1 Sway Reserves 1
30th January 2016
Sway Reserves earned a point at Chapel Gate as Ben Haffenden equalised in the second half.
Both keepers pulled off fine saves in a goalless first half that unfortunately saw Sam Quinn leave the field with a broken leg. Sway FC wish him well in his recovery.
Sports went ahead early in the second half but Sway drew level two minutes later after Steve "Fudge" Hillyer put Ben Haffenden through to volley into the roof of the net.
Sway then took control and came close to grabbing all three points; Haffenden twice hitting the post and James Langdown smashing the ball against the bar. We also had Josh Barrowdale to thank for a great goalkeeping performance.
