St James Swifts

On a pleasant Saturday morning the rec made the short trip to the billy neill pitches for a home match against st James swifts . The rec carrying a few injures today , sadly midfield maestro Luke Johnston fails to make it due to an ankle injury picked up in training but on a plus Owen John gill returns to strengthen the defence .

You couldnít help thinking that it might not be the recs day when both teams choice of kits clashed which resulted in the home team having to wear red training bibs .

The match began at a good pace with both teams seeing plenty of the ball in the 15min disaster struck when a long range effort bounced in front of keeper Brian boyde and ended up in the back of the net . 0-1 play continued with the rec trying to get back into the game and at times having to use the offside trap to thwart st James attack .
27 mins in and the rec go 2-0 down thanks to a defensive error, st James no 9 scores at ease with 3 rec players failing to make a challenge .

32 mins in and defender Alex Hamilton receives a harsh yellow card for a foul on the st James winger . 36 mins st James mild fielder no 8 breaks through and fires a shot into the net to make it 3-0 at the half time break .

Coach Phil Johnston makes a formation switch reverting to 4 at the back and 5 in midfield to try and tighten things up left back Alex Hamilton withdraws due to a leg injury being replaced by super sub Brandon .

Play resumes with the rec playing some nice football 10 mins into the 2nd half and the referee awards a penalty when forward Sadayu is brought down as he bursts into the swifts box.
Captain Matty Gibson steps up to fire the ball high into the net to pull one back for the rec 1-3 to the swifts .

Play resumes poor communication with the rec players results in the swifts scoring 2 minutes after them scoring from the penalty spot. Defender Alex Hamilton returns to the action , a through ball from Zach Quinn to Cameron on the wing who cuts into the box and is deliberately brought down by the swifts defender the ref points to the spot penalty to the rec .up steps Alex Hamilton who blasts the ball wide of the keeper to make it 2-4 to the swifts .

The rec continue to press forward with the back 4 continually catching the st James forward line offside with the offside trap. However itís not to be the recs day the referee blows the final whistle a hard fought competitive match with 2 bookings to both teams and a final score of Comber rec 2 ST James swifts 4 .
