Swans 2 Leiston 2 …

Tre Mitford

Youngster Tre Mitford got the goal which ended any danger of Staines Town being relegated. They were all but safe anyway but a 2-2 draw ensured the mathematics are now in shape too. Jonathan Hippolyte, son of manager Johnson, put the hosts in front on seven minutes after running on to a long through ball.  Leiston were soon level, Joe Jefford’s far post header making it 1-1 within three minutes and then they went in front just after the hour as Town failed to clear and Billy Clarke struck.

Swans hit the woodwork though and then substitute Mitford was on hand to grab the second to snatch a point. Staines had gone into the match boosted by news that Johnson Hippolyte had agreed to stay on as manager for next season. Taking 14 out of the last 21 points had all but guaranteed safety and lifted confidence that better times lie ahead for the club.
