Quick Fire Beard Earns Away Point

Balti Sports 1 Swans 1

Swans shared the points in a 1-1 draw with hosts Balti Sports in The Dorset Premier League.

Swans produced a flying start after 14 seconds when striker Tommy Beard fired a speculative 20 yard shot past the Sports keeper, the early goal gave the depleted side the confidence to produce a good first half performance. Aaron Atkinson went close to increasing the lead only to see his shot saved by the advancing keeper after out pacing his marker. Garan Bennett also went close when his shot was cleared off the line. Unfortunately the Swans lost the impressive Mark Gregory at half time because of an injury. H.T. 0-1.

Balti struck the equaliser 5 minutes into the second half when Ryan Dovell headed in from a corner. Swans held firm though and could have gained all the points when Paul Best presented Tommy Beard with a great chance but he shot wide when well placed. Balti hit the bar with a long range shot, then keeper Charlie Dyke produced a great save in the last minute to protect the well earned point

The back 3 of Bartlett, Godwin and new signing Jamie Harlowe were solid as was Charlie Dyke who donned the gloves who is the fourth keeper used in the last 4 games. Skipper Paul Best led by example from midfield and the outstanding Tommy Beard had his best game in a Swans shirt. New signing Jamie Harlow had a very impressive debut and should prove an asset in the future.
