The Swifts played their first home league game of the season and fell to a defeat to a strong Colin Valley side who will surely challenge for honours this season.
The visitors went in front after ten minutes and for the remainder of the first half the Swifts endeavoured to get back into the game creating numerous half chances but a goal would not come. Colin Valley increased their lead midway through the second half and a dubious penalty sealed the Swifts fate. Defensively Majury, Greene, Dunlop and Craig McMullan performed well while Nelson worked hard in the centre of midfield with Alan McMullan and Darren Fitzsimmons working hard up front.
This week the Swifts travel to Groomsport in the league.
