Match Preview – Sherwood Colliery (H)

8th April 2022 Off By bartontown

The Swans host Sherwood Colliery at the Easy Buy Stadium in the final Saturday game of the season. With two more games coming in midweek, this is the last weekend game for the first team, against a strong opponent.

Up until recently Sherwood were in contention for that coveted second place spot. However now it is mathematically impossible to attain. The Swans are still fighting with Handsworth for seventh in the league table.


The Swans have won three of their last five, with away defeats to Bottesford and Knaresborough. This is Sherwood’s final game of the season, with their last five seeing two wins, two draws, and a loss to promotion rival Eccleshill United.

Team News

With no Reserve game tomorrow there could be room for the likes of Kadey Phillips and Joel Chapman in the first team squad.
