Tough task for the Swallows

UPLYME, fielding probably the youngest side in the Perry Street League, faced a difficult test against a well organised and physical Pymore side at Venlake on Saturday.

The Swallows were missing their two first-choice centre backs meant they had to shuffle their youngsters around and ultimately were second best for most of the first half conceded three goal.

The second half was more encouraging with Uplyme creating more chances. Alex Pennington got their consolation go as they continued to push forward, but they were caught on the break twice by the Division One leader.

Manager Stu Wooster picked out Dan Huggins and Oscar Sladen, making their league debuts for the Swallows, for a special mention, both impressing those watching.

This coming Saturday (September 21) Uplyme are away to Division 1 rivals Forton Rangers (kick-off 3pm).
