    Jeanfield v Camelon - Tomorrow

    6 goal thriller as Swifts came from 3-1 down the equalise with a last minute penalty. Excellent game for the neutral in front of a large crowd.
  2. Tomorrow sees a huge game for the battle for third place in East Conference C as Swifts and Camelon face off at the Riverside. Swifts triumphed 5-1 at Carmuirs earlier in the season and the visitors will be up for revenge which should make this fixture a cracker. Kick off is at 2.30pm and the lounge with be open pre and post match for supporters.

    Send them out on loan to Jeanfield. We will happily help them develop.
  4. This weekend see Swifts entertain Bonnyrigg Rose in the 3rd round of the Football Nation Cup. Rose head north on the back of 20 straight wins and will be looking to extend that at Swifts expense. This should be a cracking cup tie and with it being the international period then why not head down and watch. Kick off is at 2.30pm and extra time and penalties will be played if required. The lounge inside the ground will be open from 13.30 for those who wish to have a refreshing drink. It will not be open at half time however as that is for committee and sponsors only. #supporttheswifts

    Jeanfield v St Andrews - Saturday 2 March

    This weekend we are at home to Heroit Watt University. Tough game and we will have to work much harder than we did on Saturday. That is correct we would be tier 6. Currently going through the licence process which if accepted will allow us to enter the preliminary rounds of the William Hill Scottish Cup for next season.

    Jeanfield v St Andrews - Saturday 2 March

    3-2 win for the visitors as poor Swifts got what they deserved. Crowd of around 100 inside the enclosure and only 6 out of 50 programmes not sold.
  7. Swifts play their first home fixture since December 29 this Saturday when St Andrews travel to Perth for the Central Taxis Conference C Fixture. With no fixture for Saints why not get on down and cheer on the Fair Citys other senior side as they bid for a Premier League place next season. Swifts can still win the Conference but it is outwith our hands following our only league defeat so far at Broxburn 2 weeks ago. This is the first of 4 home games in a row for the Swifts and they will be hoping to use that to put pressure on Broxburn and Linlithgow above us. Swifts will be producing a match programme this weekend in the hope that it will become a regular thing. Kick off is 2.30pm
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
