Will the Swifts have the measure of Uplands Rangers

by Helen Shuttlewood

Heybridge put on one of their best performances of the season in this cup game.

On 8 minutes a cross from Shuttlewood on the right was finished well by Albone.

On 15 minutes Spreadbury was the provider and Albone finished.

On 18 minutes Shuttlewood crossed and Albone completed his hatrick.

The home team replied with a well taken goal on 21 minutes.

The second half started with Ball crossing and the ball flicking off an Uplands defender.

Shuttlewood on 37 minutes took the ball into the area showing great close control and finished for a well deserved goal.

Farmer scored two good goals on 40 & 41 minutes both from Shuttlewood crosses.

On 45 minutes Albone was put through and finished well in the bottom corner.

In the 47th minute the home team scored and then were unlucky to score an OG.

Ball finished the scoring in the 50th minute with a left foot shot from close range

There were notable performances from Deakin in defence and Brinkley in goal . Shuttlewood was superb showing an unselfish approach and passing the ball brilliantly.

MOM was Ball.
