Monkton Swifts 1

St Clears 1

BOTH camps felt that this game was pretty even and a draw was a fair result.

The visitors led one-nothing at half time; the goal was scored by Saints’ striker Ian Derbyshire who reacted quickest in the box to find the back of the net.

However, the Swifts got on top in the second half and were rewarded for their hard efforts when Ben Nicholas equalised in the 75th minute. The midfielder benefiting from a quick throw-in and he lashed home from 20 yards out.
