Mixed emotions at Wheatsheaf Park as the popular Swans Manager Johnson Hippolyte said his goodbyes and the free scoring pair Elliott Buchanan and Mo Bettamer finished with a flourish. Add to this, following more than 35 years of Boon control, Matthew Boon and his close knit family, governed their final game. We never stop thinking about the club their father Alan Boon built for the fans.
It was fitting that Buchs took his opportunity to seal the ‘Golden Boot’ by scoring four in the 5-2 win over the visitors, Thurrock FC. Mo Bettamer finished with a goal to ensure he ended 5th in the Bostik Premier scoring list. A huge achievement for the pair but it could not have been done without the highly successful squad that Draxs had put together since taking the boys from the lower reaches to just 4 points off the play-offs.
We wish Draxs and his management team every success with their next club. Keep an eye on the Swans Twitter feed for news of events at Wheatsheaf Park over the coming weeks as we look to build on the seasons success.
Whilst it was with sadness we say goodbye to Thurrock FC as they have now officially left the Bostik Premier League but we celebrate the result, the seasons successes and the commitment the players, club and fans have all put in …
