BUT LEAD­ERS VI­TAL POINT EA­GLES BAT­TLE BACK FOR POINT

The Non-League Football Paper - - BOSTIK NORTH AND SOUTH CENTRAL - By Gary White

JU­LIAN Dicks’ Hey­bridge Swifts claimed an ex­cit­ing vic­tory over an in form Til­bury side who were on an im­pres­sive run un­der new man­ager Marc Har­ri­son.

The vis­i­tors took the lead in the first half when Thomas Bar­ton rose high­est at the far post from a cor­ner and planted a firm header into the back of the net.

The ex­cel­lent Har­ri­son Chat­ting equalised five min­utes later with a low drive from the edge of the area af­ter fine build-up play down the left and a per­fectly judged cut­back from Jack Adling­ton-Pile.

Jody Mon­goy put Swifts ahead on 62 min­utes when he ran on to a through ball and showed plenty of com­po­sure to ex­pertly chip over the on­rush­ing keeper.

Swifts pro­tected their lead with aplomb and recorded Dicks’ eighth win in ten league games since tak­ing charge, mov­ing them to within 4 points of the league lead­ers Bow­ers & Pit­sea.
