Slimbridge v Larkhall Athletic - Match Postponed
Tuesday 25th February
Tonight's game has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. We will announce a new date when we have it.
Bradford Town 1-0 Slimbridge
Monday 24th February
Playing only their third game of 2014, Slimbridge went out of the Les Phillips Cup to Bradford Town, playing more than half of the game with ten men after Jamie Martin's first half dismissal.
Bradford started well in heavy conditions and had the ball in the Swans' net after two minutes, but the goal was disallowed. Slimbridge Keeper Dave Evans had to be on top form to keep the home side out, but the Swans were up against it when Martin saw red for retaliation just before half time.
The home side continued to have the best of the play, and their second half pressure eventually was rewarded when Craig Gingell headed home Dan King's cross with five minutes remaining leaving Slimbridge little time to respond.
Our game tomorrow when we host Larkhall Athletic is subject to a 12.30 Pitch Inspection. We will post the result here as soon as it is known. The Swans are off to Ilfracombe on Saturday (March 1st, 3.00pm) before another road trip on March 4th, this time to Odd Down (Bath), (7.45pm Kick Off).
Team: Evans, Hoyle, Robinson, Sterling, Thornton, Ward, Turner, Twyman, Chandler (Ford 80), Martin, Fahy, Stevenson
