Tonbridge Angels 1 Swans 2 …


On an afternoon of high tension for the Swans faithful it was yet another Penalty save from Swans shot stopper Jack Turner that ensured all 3 points at Tonbridge on a day that saw Tommy Brewer dismissed for the second game in succession and Max Worsfold score a cracking double to take Swans into 9th place. Angels started the day 3 points ahead of the Swans having played 6 games fewer but it was Drax’s side that came out strong and had several chances in the opening exchanges.

On 22 minutes Max Worsfold opened the scoring with a ruthless finish past the keeper to take the Swans in 1-0 up at half-time, Angels suffering from the early loss of Nathan Elder. The target man looked uncomfortable from the start and was soon replaced. Swans, with the initiative and supported by some good football from Sam Barratt, Mo Bettamer, Max and Brandon Adams looked dangerous when going forward.

Though Max Worsfold scored a second a second with a great header to the far post following a pin point cross from the lively Sam Barratt it looked as though Angels were beginning to take hold of the midfield. Sure enough the necessary substititions saw Luke Allen score within seconds of coming on and the pressure was on. Swans captain Tommy Brewer then received his successive red card and Allen strode up to take the penalty. Jack Turner was at his best to save yet another spot kick and immense again with a tip round from a Wheeler strike to keep the Angels at bay.

With an added time of 6 minutes the Swans rode out the game with Daniel Brown and Kane Haysman both strong as late subs. The Swans management could be heard following the game impressing what it is the guys need to do to take the points and tighten up when in front. Still 3 points and onwards to Worthing on Tuesday evening … #FollowtheSwans
