Brantham fall to friendly defeat against Heybridge Swifts
Three goals in the opening 13 minutes set Heybridge Swifts on the way to a 4-1 victory at Brantham Athletic on Tuesday night.
Michael Cheek capitalised on hesitant defending to open the scoring after three minutes and two minutes later Chris Moore headed powerfully home from a corner, before Shane Stamp added a third with a fine individual goal.
Cheek scored from the rebound on the half hour after a Stamp shot rebounded off a post. Brantham came more into the game in the second half and Michael Brothers pulled a goal back with a delightful finish 20 minutes from time.
