Manderwood Pembrokeshire League Division One: Monkton Swifts 3-0 Saundersfoot Sports

Monkton Swifts rose to the top of the table following this three-goal victory over Saundersfoot Sports at Monkton Lane.

The Swifts scored two early goals to put Joe Lewis’ Swifts in charge against a hard working Saundersfoot outfit.

In the fifth minute Chris Richards powered his header in from an accurate Jimmy Russell cross.

Just five minutes later and Shaun Jones doubled the lead, the centre half struck a vicious strike from distance that beat Sam Franklin at full stretch.

The Swifts were good value for their two-goal cushion at half time and midway through the second period they added their third. Ben Steele profited from inside the box as he go on the end of a Richards cross.

This was the Swifts’ tenth win of the campaign and they are now a point ahead of second-placed Goodwick at the half-way stage of the season.
