  1. Swifts progress to round 3 with a 3-2 at the home of golf. More comfortable than the score suggests as the Perth team didn't really get out of 3rd gear in very difficult conditions.
  2. PLEASE NOTE THIS FIXTURE HAS NOW BEEN SWITCHED TO ST ANDREWS AS RIVERSIDE IS UNPLAYABLE. It is now a King Cup fixture with a 2pm kick off and will be played to a finish.
  3. This weekend Jeanie look to maintain their unbeaten league campaign when St Andrews travel to the Riverside. With Saints not playing until Sunday why not come down and support Perths other club in the Scottish Football pyramid.
  4. It all depends on if we beat Bonnyrigg in the 3rd round. That will be tough as they like us are unbeaten in the league this season. No date has been set for that game yet.
  5. No bar yet or floodlights yet but that is in the pipeline. New committee taken over this season and looking to make changes to club. Only 1 goes up just now but that all depends if they are licensed. That is something we are working on BTW. Crowds are up a little which is a positive. Finished 2-2 yesterday. Last minute debatable pen recused a point though we did play 70 minutes with 10 men. Still unbeaten in the league though.
  6. It does comply to Lowland requirements we just need to get our entry level licence. We have applied for this and are working towards it although the SFA have thrown a spanner in the works by insisting that floodlighting is mandatory. However there are 3 LL clubs who don't have then and over half of the 17 clubs who have applied for SFA membership this year don't have them either. Its just a case of wait and see. As for next season all we know is there will be a 16 team premier league. The top 5 of each conference are guaranteed a place and the others depend on Lowland league promotion and relegation. 6th place may also be promoted. Below that has yet to be decided. Hope this helps.
  7. Not going to Dundee to watch Saints tomorrow? Don't fancy watching the old firm? Well there is only 1 game in Perth tomorrow and its at Riverside Stadium as Swifts entertain Blackburn United. Swifts won 3-0 down in West Lothian under the lights in October and are looking to complete the double over tomorrow's opponents. Kick off is 1.30pm

    Jeanfield v Broxburn - Saturday 8 December

    Jeanfield Swifts 2 Broxburn Athletic 0 ⚽ Scott Smith ⚽ Fraser Smith Swifts moved up to second place in Conference C with an excellent victory today as second half goals from the Smith brothers gave us victory. The home side looked more likely to score in the goal less opening half that was marred by an injury to Connor Kelly. Following a tackle he landed badly and dislocated his elbow. This caused a delay of 30 minutes while we waiting for an ambulance to arrive. Scott Smith scored his first Swifts goal stroking home from inside the box midway through the half. He then won a penalty with 5 minutes to go while was despatched into the top corner by his older brother Fraser. The visitors threw everything at the hosts as darkness descended at the Riverside. An excellent win for Swifts in front of a large crowd again at the Riverside who kept on driving the home side on. Our thoughts tonight are with Connor Kelly and we hope that he recovers from his injury as soon as possible. Apologies to those who thought it was a 2pm kick off. That was my mistake in not updating the website and calling The Courier. Next week Swifts are again at home this time to Heriot Watt University. Kick off is 1.30pm
  9. Its 3rd v 2nd this Saturday at Riverside Stadium as Jeanfield take on Broxburn Athletic in the EOS Conference C. The 2 cup games have brought one win each this season and have been enthralling matches. Both sides love to get the ball down and the surface at Jeanfield is suited to that. With Saints in the granite city why not come down and back the Swifts. Its surely better than doing the Christmas shopping. Please note kick off is now 1.30pm not 2pm as advertised.
  10. Finished 5-0 to the home side. Larger than normal crowd on hand to see Swifts cruise to victory
  11. That was nice of them. Played some good stuff but Linlithgow scored 11 v them. Always good to hear. Its how we play and hopefully people will come and watch us and come back more often
  12. Wanting out of the doing the Christmas shopping this weekend? Looking for your football fix? Well look no further than the Riverside Stadium this weekend as Jeanfield entertain Inverkeithing. There have been goals aplenty at the Riverside this season with 40 goals in 7 games so far and more expected on Saturday. Adults £6 Concessions £3 Under 16s go FREE

    Jeanfield v Broxburn - Saturday 13 October

    Jeanfield 4 Broxburn 2 after extra time A great advert for non league football at Riverside today as Swifts inflicted a first defeat of the season on league rivals Broxburn. 2 all after 90 in which the visitors levelled in the dying minutes but 2 goals in second period of extra time saw the home side through. After a poor opening the period the game opened up in the second half with both teams getting the ball down and attacking each other with Swifts leading twice before the visitors came back level

  15. Looking for your football fix or want to get over last weekends result? Well Perths other senior team are in action this weekend when Broxburn Athletic visit Riverside Stadium in the South Challenge Cup. Both teams are in EOS Conference C this season with the Brox in 1st place 2 points ahead of second placed Swifts. The teams have met already this season with Broxburn giving Swifts their only defeat so far with a 2-0 win at the Riverside in the Alex Jack Cup 5 weeks ago. This is bound to be a close encounter and Swifts head in to the game looking for revenge off the back of 3 straight wins including an emphatic 5-1 win over Camelon on Saturday. This game will be refereed by ex SPFL referee Craig Charleston who will be abily assisted by the mother and daughter combination of Kelly Kyle and Abbie Hendry. Kick off at the Riverside is at 2.30pm. Broxburn normally bring a large support so why not get down and get behind the Swifts as they look to progress to the 3rd round.
