After beating Stockwood Green 2-0 at the weekend, The Swags struck early at Somerdale Pavilion when Jared Ford scored with a diving header after just three minutes.

Captain and goalkeeper Jason Mellor was called into action a few times to deny the hosts before Ford doubled his tally five minutes before the interval with a heel flick which beat the keeper.
