Swifts get Tolleshunt D’Arcy trip to Witham


SWIFTS have been handed a trip to local rivals Witham in the Tolleshunt D’Arcy Memorial Cup.

There were 19 entries for the competition and Julian Dicks will take his Heybridge side to face Marc Benterman’s new-look Town at Spa Road in a second round tie to be played by the end of October.

The Tolleshunt D’Arcy Cup is a traditional charity invitational competition to raise money for the Essex County FA Benevolent Fund. Maldon & Tiptree are the current holders after a 1-0 win in the final against Brightlingsea Regent in April.
