Swans fell behind after only three minutes. Defender Winters slipped and the Bottesford midfielder took advantage, playing a defence-splitting pass behind Wilson-Law for the on-running midfielder to head home.

Bottesford stretched their lead even further when a ball was sent into the Swans’ box and flicked on by Radford to the unmarked Bottesford winger who coolly slotted past the stranded Flavell.

Swans got their breakthrough after a Bottesford defender conceded a free kick on the edge of the area. Johnson rolled the free kick to Clarke whose left foot shot bent round home keeper Loomes.

Sixtieth minute substitute Rawcliffe fired home Swans’ equaliser with his first touch in his debut game, after some good work from Tyndall.

Man of the match was Liam Warner. Match sponsor was Grantham Honda, and Spraytech sponsored the ball.
