Swans Suffer Day's Park Defeat

By

2-0 home defeat to Combined Counties side.........

Swans suffered a 2-0 defeat to Combined Counties Premier League outfit Cobham at Day's Park in this pre-season friendly.

On a hot July afternoon more suited to cricket than football both sides started at a pretty slow pace, however it was the visitors who took the lead on 14 minutes with a sweetly struck shot to leave home keeper James Langdon helpless.

Swans had chances of their own with Brandon Ritchie missing from close range following a corner, and Aaron Atkinson missed the target following a mistake in the visitors defence. Cobham doubled their lead just before half time from the penalty spot following a foul from centre back Brandon Ritchie. H.T. 0-2.

Swans produced a better display in the second half, but the visitors always looked dangerous on the break and very nearly increased their lead when they hit the bar and had another shot that looked over the line. James Langdon had to be at his best late on to deny the visitors further goals.
