Memorial game cancelled
It is with regret that Sway have had to pull out of our match against Lymington next Saturday in memory of Club supporter Chris Sirl. Injuries and other reasons have made it impossible for us to raise a side.

1st July 2017
Ryan Brading and Darren Ritchie were amongst the scorers for Sway as we fought a rearguard battle against Upham First Team. The Reserves did well to limit another strong Upham side to a 2-0 win. But a good work out in preparation for the coming season.
Season kicks off with new Management Teams
Sway start their season with a double header at home to Upham on Saturday.
Both the First Team and the Reserves will have new personnel in the dugout:
The First Team will continue to be led by Stuart Doling, Matt Dunford and Ben Johnson but they are now joined by Dave Gray who has moved across from Upham.
For the Reserves, we welcome the entirely new management team of Jimmy Plowman,Ted Allott and Ross Boon.
The first match kicks off at 2pm. As usual the Jubilee Field bar will be open to refresh supporters.
In the coming weeks we have more friendlies as we prepare for Hampshire Premier League football which kicks off in August. We have two more home games against Lymington and Hamworthy Rec followed by another double-header, this time away to New Milton.
