Heybridge Swifts’ terrific season came to an end with a 2-0 defeat at Haringey Borough in tonight’s Bostik North play-off semi-final, in front of a crowd of 442 at Coles Park.

The Swifts had an early chance with Joe Gardner side-footing wide, but Borough hit the bar on 11 minutes when Anthony McDonald’s header struck the woodwork.

Ahmed Abdulla did well to clear Ralston Gabriel’s header off the goal-line on 15 minutes, as the hosts forced the issue.

And Borough went in front in the 21st minute, Jorge Djassi-Sambu finding the back of the net with a slick finish.
