    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

    Jeanfield v Broxburn - Saturday 13 October
  3. 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.
  4. Looking for your football fix this Saturday and not travelling down to Ibrox on Sunday? Perths other senior club have a home game this weekend and would be delighted if you were to come down and support. This is our 3rd league game and we currently have a 100% record in the league. 8 wins from 9 overall with a 2-0 reverse to Broxburn our only defeat this season. Ross Gunnions men got back to winning ways at the weekend with a 4-2 victory over Lowland League Vale of Leithen down in the borders which saw us come from behind to win along with 15 year old Sam Townsley playing 90 minutes in the goal. Kick off at Riverside is 2.30pm Entry is £6 for adults and £3 for concessions. Please note kids go free

    Jeanfield v Broxburn - Saturday 1 September

    2-0 win for the visitors in a well matched game where Broxburn took their chances.
  6. Jeanfield entertain conference rivals Broxburn this weekend in the second round of the Alex Jack Cup. The 4 ties between the teams in the last 2 seasons have saw 20 goals with the last one a 0-0 draw at Riverside in November. Both teams have had a good start to the season and scoring freely. Kick off is at 2.30pm and extra time will be played in scores are level after 90 minutes. Entry is £6 for adults and £3 for consessions.
  7. They made 6 changes to the team who beat BSC the previous week but take nothing away from us they were still a quality side who will be challenging for promotion to League 2 this season. Those who came in still had plenty of League 1 & League 2 experience.
  8. Final score 3-0 to Jeanfield. Took a while to kill off the game after scoring early but its been 3 wins from 3 so far but need to be more clinical in front of goal. Good to see a few newcomers coming through the gate. Hopefully enjoyed it and come back soon.
  9. Not going down to Kilmarnock this weekend? Then get on down to Riverside Stadium as Jeanfield play their first home match as a senior club when Leith Athletic visit. This is Swifts final game of our League Cup Section of which we have qualified from after 2 wins away from home over Bo'ness & Oakley. Kick off is at 2.30pm with entry at £6 & kids go free. A list of league fixtures (which we have until the end of March!!) will be available from the tea hut. Hope to see you there.
  10. Bored tomorrow night and looking for something to do? Jeanfield entertain Luncarty at the Riverside with 7.15 kick off. Swifts have this season signed 3 ex Saints players. Chris Dodd returns from Elgin City while Connor McLaren & Paul Simpson have joined up from Montrose & Berwick.
  11. Jeanfield Swifts have today issued our application to join the East of Scotland League for season 2018/2019. Given the uncertainty surrounding the future of the East Region Super League, and the growing number of teams applying to join the pyramid system, we have made the decision with the best interests of the club in mind. Our future plans and focus on building ourselves into a strong, sustainable community club align well with the SFAs's pyramid system and we are hopeful the East of Scotland League committee see us as being a valuable addition to the league and accept our application. Once a decision has been made we will issue a further statement.
  12. Jeanfield 6 Forfar West End 0 Comfortable win for Swifts in a game they dominated from start to finish. Kiffy Scott, Tony Holt & Rhys Davies with 4 were the scores on a cold and wet night at the Riverside.
  13. Linlithgow & Boness are keen to join pyramid but I believe their committees are split on the decision. The EOSFL have left room in their leagues for late applicants so we may well see them join too
  14. Bonnyrigg Rose Camelon Hill of Beath Musselburgh Haddington Tranent Edinburgh United Easthouses Lily Dalkeith Thistle Blackburn United Dunipace Crossgates Primrose Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts (a new amatuer team) have also joined the EOSFL
  15. The 12 clubs have joined the East of Scotland Football League which is classed as tier 6 just below the Highland and Lowland Leagues. The winners of this league, if licensed, played the winners of the South of Scotland League also if they are licensed for a place in the Lowland League. Kelty Hearts who won the Super League last season then joined the EOSFL (There is no direct promotion) won the league and are currently 4-0 up in the play off and looking good for the Lowland League next season. The plan is for the juniors to merge with the EOSFL and become one but if that will happen we don’t know. Jeanfield are in a weird place as we are right on the boundary line for Highland and Lowland League which is currently the River Tay!!! To play in the Lowland League you need to have a SFA Entry Level Licence. We do not have this but it is something we will look to have in the near future. However to apply for this you must become part of the SFA pyramid structure. With the licence comes entry to the Scottish Cup and possible match v Saint etc if we manage to get through 5 or so rounds. Our committee was not too keen to go ahead whoever they are leaving the club at the end of the season and the new people are keen for the club to progress in the pyramid and the benefits that will come with it. Fort were planning to return to the North Caledonian League which is below the Highland League however no teams get promoted as its a closed shop. Hope this helps as it is quite confusing at times.
