Balham 2 Swans 1

Swans went down 2-1 in their first pre-season friendly, played on the 3G pitch at Southfields Academy.

The match was very much a trial for assessing possible new players for the forthcoming season in the Combined Counties League, with only three of last season’s first-team squad, Lea Van Sullivan, Connor Channon and Seb Castello taking part.

Manager Simon Haughney will be bringing in more players for further friendlies before the start of the season.
