Ashton & Backwell 0-6 Slimbridge AFC
Saturday 1st August
The Swans would have expected to come out on top against their Toolstation Western League First Division opponents, but there were plenty of positives to take from the penultimate friendly of the new season.
The visitors took the lead on 21 minutes, when Adam Mace's pinpoint cross was met by an equally impressive header from Ciaran Greening, the same combination that hit the target at Brimscombe last week.
On 38 minutes, Mace was again the provider following good work from Greening, his cross this time being slid home by Jack Twyman, registering his first goal since returning from injury.
Eight minutes into the second half, Mace got himself on the scoresheet with a 20 Yard strike to put the Swans three up.
Just before the hour, Mitch Cornock played a lovely ball into Paul Fahy, who rounded the Keeper and recorded his first of the afternoon.
Five minutes later, Cornock recorded his first goal for the first team, converting a good Sam Turl Cross.
With ten minutes remaining, The Swans were awarded a penalty when Fahy was upended as he raced through on goal, and he picked himself to convert the spot kick himself and put a lid on the scoring.
The Swans are in action again on Monday night, when they travel to Frampton United, for a game which kicks off at 6.45pm.
Team: Evans, Turl, Brown, Rich Thwaite, Greening, Ward, Turner, Twyman, Martin, Fahy, Mace Subs: (All used) Cornock, Ryan Thwaite, Tunnicliff, Lawson, Parrott
Supporters Man of the Match: Adam Mace

Westfields 5-3 Slimbridge AFC
Wednesday 29th July
The Swans twice led this game, but in the end were defeated by a determined Westfields team who lifted the HFA Senior Invitation Trophy as a result.
Slimbridge goalscorers were Paul Fahy, Sean Lawson and Jamie Martin.
Slimbridge 0-0 Forest Green Rovers
Saturday 25th July
The Swans did more than avoid defeat this afternoon to a full strength Forest Green Squad, they matched their Conference opponents man for man, and with a little luck, could have registered their first victory against Rovers since this encounter has become a pre-season fixture for both sides.
Jonny Maxted in the Forest Green goal, signed last night and playing behind his defenders for the first time made two superb stops in the first half - early on from Sean Lawson, who along with Paul Fahy caused FGR problems all afternoon, and then an even better save from Adam Maceís effort ten minutes before the interval.
With Forest Green switching their entire outfield team on the hour mark, there was a danger that the fresh legs would start to tell, but it is a tribute to the pre-season efforts of all involved that the hosts didnít flag at all for the whole 90 minutes.
Lawson again went close on 63 minutes, edging his effort just past the post, while Aaron OíConnor was just wide for the visitors with 6 minutes remaining after good work from Elliott Freer.
But in the end, an FGR goal would have been an injustice to the home side, and Leon Sterling, Freddy Ward and all of their players can feel very proud of their contribution to an entertaining afternoon played out in front of a crowd of just over 300 fans.
Team: Evans, Turl, Brown, Rich Thwaite, Tunnicliff, Ward, Turner, Twyman, Lawson, Fahy, Mace Subs Used: Blackie, Martin, Parrott, Freeman
Supporters Man of the Match: Sam Turl
Brimscombe & Thrupp 1-1 Slimbridge AFC
Wednesday 22nd July
Another Swans' former player came back to haunt them in a very well fought and entertaining encounter last night at The Meadow, with Karl Nash notching a last kick of the game equaliser for the home side. Ciaran Greening had put the Visitors ahead with a header in the 24th minute from Adam Mace's corner. Towards the end of the first period, Slimbridge Keeper made a superb triple save to keep out another ex-Swan, Joey Tustain
In the second period, Evans continued to excel, making a penalty save on 57 minutes, but was finally beaten by Nash's thunderbolt at the death.
Photographer Shane Healey was on hand to capture the action, and we will be featuring some of his superb photos in our gallery shortly.
