Välkommen …Swans Swedish fans made the trip once more to Wheatsheaf Park and saw their squad put in an impressive performance on a warm sunny February afternoon. 3 goals in 4 first half minutes shocked the visitors and put the game to bed by half time.
The starting eleven is looking settled as Johnson Hippolyte looks to achieve something from the season and this week brought in Tom Collins from Enfield to boost the squad. It was a powerful first half performance with Max Worsfold reaping the first rewards for strong play by striking in from the edge of the area just 5 minutes before the break following a strong run. Pushed on by the constant hard working Adrian Clifton, Mo Bettamer continued to give the Sudbury defence problems and after taking the ball to the sidelines crossed for ‘Cash’ Hippolyte to turn in from close range [twice in 2 games now]. Mo then added a third with a great finish to leave the keeper shell shocked.
It was a different second half though, punctuated by injuries and stoppages, as the game was all but won by then. Drax used all 3 subs and, unfortunately, with his first strike Laurent Hamici went down and had to be carried off leaving the Swans with 10 men. Still there was another twist as Swans Academy star Nebay Haile pushed forward and crossed leading to a penalty and … you got it! Neebz duly popped in the penalty to record his first goal for the club at senior level to add to the many for the Academy. #FollowtheSwans
