Swans Ease To Win

10 months ago By Swanage FC

Late goals seal it.................

Swans scored their fourteenth goal in the last 3 league games to defeat Gillingham Town 4-1 at Day's Park in The Dorset Premier League.

After surviving a few early scares and a disallowed goal from visitors Gillingham Town, Swans struck after 8 minutes courtesy of a looping header from striker Graeme Rose. Co-striker Cameron Beard doubled the lead from the penalty spot after Sam Beale was tripped.H.T. 2-0.

The Gills started the second half in determined mood and deserved their goal from a penalty by Elliot Beavis on 56 minutes. Swans had to defend well but always looked dangerous on the break and missed the chance to put the game to bed following a penalty miss by Cameron Beard. However they did score their third in the 85th minute with a spectacular effort from Aaron Atkinson, and 2 minutes later skipper Paul Best sealed the points heading home a rebound after Cameron Beard's header hit the bar.

Another 3 points for Tim Brown's men with a great display in their quest for the championship but the scoreline a bit harsh on a very good Gillingham Town side.
