Striker Jonathan Hippolyte kept it in the family has he emerged from the bench to pinch a winner for Staines Town in a superb Ryman Premier win at Needham Market.

Boss Johnson Hippolyte threw on his son in the second half and the youngster nabbed an 83rd-minute winner, his first goal for Swans, to make it three wins from four for the Wheatsheaf Park outfit.

The result put a dent in Needham Market’s survival hopes while Staines look to be safe, with a 10-point buffer, although boss Hippolyte will quickly demand at least another win from his players to make sure.

Swans’ skipper Tommy Brewer was delighted: “I was back at centre-half and enjoyed it. You can’t beat a 1-0 win away from home and a clean sheet.”

The hosts made all the early inroads as Luke Ingram and Jordan Patrick saw efforts go over the crossbar, before Swans’ new striker Tre Mitford spurned a great chance when he went through one-on-one but fired narrowly wide.

The Marketmen regained control midway through the first half with a nice move between Billy Holland and Kem Izzet ending with the former’s shot being blocked, and on 26 minutes Michael Brothers struck the Staines crossbar.
