Rossglass 1 v 2 Ballynahinch Swifts

The Swifts claimed a debut victory in this their first game on their return to the Newcastle League.

Manager Davy Teggarty was in a position to field a strong team with a number of the first team squad being available for duty following holiday.

Playing some neat football from the start the Swifts created several good scoring opportunities and took the lead when Stevenson slotted home after rounding the keeper.

Rossglass equalised from the penalty spot to level the game before Alan Massey scored from the penalty spot to give the Swifts a half time lead.

In the second half Rossglass fought strongly to get back on even terms but the Swifts defence remained resolute while Bingham, Allison and McCaffrey all went close to increasing their lead.
