Bury Town 2 Heybridge Swifts 1

Heybridge Swifts’ punishing schedule took its toll as Cemal Ramadan netted a late brace to seal a home win for Bury Town at Ram Meadow tonight.

The Swifts had won three quickfire matches inside a six-day period, over Witham, Cheshunt and Waltham Abbey last week, and a fourth win would have seen them power into the play-off zone.

It was goalless for the first three-quarters of the game, until substitute Luke Callander put the Swifts 1-0 up on 71 minutes.

If the result had stayed this way, then Jody Brown’s men would have dislodged Dereham and moved into sixth spot, but Blues’ striker Ramadan then bagged a brace of goals in the 75th and 82nd minutes to move the West Suffolk club up to 10th in the table.
