Have your say

The Swans started their adventure in the Lincolnshire Junior Cup with an emphatic victory over league opponents Imps.

RM Imps FC 0

White Swan Barrowby 4

As soon as the whistle went to start the game, the Swans pressed the home goal and this set the tone for the remainder of the game.

Craig Wilson’s prolific scoring form continued when he slotted home on 35 minutes after good work by Joe Clarke.

Warner was unfortunate not to put the Swans further ahead after a mazy run through the heart of the Imps defence ended when the ball got tangled in his feet as his shot was about to be dispatched.

The home side only threatened once during the half when a dangerous ball fizzed across the six yard box only to be safely cleared by the impressive Ryan Jones.

The second half started at a pace with the Swans dictating play once again.

The early pressure paid off when a slide-rule pass by Tindall found the run of Wilson who smashed an unstoppable shot into the top corner.

The tireless Johnson got his reward for his efforts when Wilson squared the ball for the forward to slot home.

The third goal seemed to drop the heads of the home team and Barrowby could sense the kill, ruthlessly converging on the opposition goal in waves of attack.

The Barrowby defence was solid at the other end, not allowing the opposition a single shot on goal.

Again a lovely team move was rewarded when Clarke finished from close range on 87 minutes to finish the game off.

The sheer frustration of the Imps boiled over when a player was sent off for kicking out at Warner on 89 minutes, a reaction to the dominance he had enjoyed in the middle of the park.

Barrowby now move into the next round were they will face an away trip to Immingham Bluestones FC.

Man of the match was Leigh Radford. Match day sponsor was Honda Grantham. Match ball sponsor was Bloomsbury Bread.
