"A good game on a perfect pitch although the wind made it a game of 2 halves, one in which Swift strangely played much better against it."
Rapid Dementia Report:
" With Kevin Costner as this weeks themed team talk, Rapid made the short visit to Frys to take on Swift. Due to the recent heavy rain we thought it might be a 'Water World' affair but on a sunny day the pitch was more like a 'Field of Dreams'. With Keynsham hosting a 10K run, traffic was bad but Rapid got there in the end 'For the Love of the Game'. Manager Gregory revealed the bad news that 'The Postman' Kevin Presley was absent for this game but on the plus side 'The Guardian' Darren Bird was to make his Goalkeeping debut. After some confusion about Darren Ross not being able to make it, we found a suitable replacement in Darren James. The game started with a 'Criminal' foul on Matt Curtis who surely felt the opposing player was one of 'The Untouchables' with no free kick coming from the Ref.
Rapid struggled to find any accuracy in their passing in the early stages, with the strong wind playing a part. Indeed with a packed midfield there appeared to be 'No way Out' but for the odd long shot, Justin Gregory going close from range. The opening break through was to come from right back with Marcus Roper curling a cross deliberately (he is an ex pro) into the path of the defending Swift players head for an own goal. With half time upon us Rapid made the tactical switch to 4 4 2. With an injection of pace on the wings Rapid began to force more and more crosses. Jase Curtis was to finish one, with Ant Presley again to pop up with his second in two matches. The scoring was rounded off by another debutant, the replacement Darren James with a cheeky back heel into the net.
A good team performance this one, with several players putting in decent shifts! MOM Sam Morton."
