Swans suffered FA Vase heartache, losing 3-0 against Longwell Green Sports of The Western League Division 1 at Day's Park in the 2nd Qualifying round.
Swans produced a disappointing performance in this eagerly awaited tie and were behind after 6 minutes, Ali Bamford slotting home. Swans custodian Dan Beeston kept the Swans in the tie with some smart saves however it was the team from the higher league who looked likely to add to their score and on 31 minutes Danny Carter doubled his sides lead. H.T. 0-2.
The tie was over as a contest when substitute Lewis Bond-Kendall added the third after 53 minutes. The rest of the match was well controlled by the visitors with the Swans offering very little of a threat to The Greens superiority.
Manager Tim Brown was very disappointed with his sides performance and added "We didn't turn up and didn't compete".
