In the biting, blustery north winds of Saturday afternoon Coningsby welcomed Swineshead to the Allan Barker Field for a Boston League Premier Division fixture.

From the whistle, both teams expended a lot of energy to warm up and both goalies got some chances to earn their keep, but eventually play settled down to a more ordered level with with no-one giving away or receiving very much.

The second half, however, was much more eventful with Coningsby rattling the visitors’ crossbar twice.

But it was Swineshead though that did all the scoring, with one goal coming with a low sizzler from near the penalty spot, and another five minutes later resulting from a cross from the right field to make it 2-0.
