Swifts begin county cup campaign at home to Bowers


HEYBRIDGE will look to maintain their proud recent record in the Essex Senior Cup by starting this season’s campaign with a win against division rivals Bowers on Tuesday (November 14).

Swifts, losing finalists to Concord in 2016 and beaten by eventual champions Chelmsford in the semi-finals last season, welcome Rob Small’s in-form Bostik North side to the Aspen Waite Arena in a match which will kick-off at 7.45pm.

It is one of three cup competitions Heybridge are still competing in after Saturday’s 2-1 FA Trophy success at Dorchester.

Swifts also now know they will face star-studded Billericay Town in round three of the Velocity Trophy on Wednesday, November 22, after the Blues knocked out Maldon last week.
