The Swifts, with former West Ham defender Julian Dicks as their manager, recorded an impressive 2-0 win at Aveley's Parkside Stadium. Swifts had finished fifth in the table.

Aveley were reduced to 10 men by Sam Bantick's 58th minute sending off, and the Swifts made the game safe when substitute Matt Price doubled the lead with a break-away goal in injury-time.

Meanwhile, Maldon & Tiptree beat Coggeshall Town 1-0 at home in the other semi-final, thanks to Eddie-Louis Dsane's 59th minute winner. He tapped home Jerome Slew's cross at the far post.
