SWANAGE Town & Herston ended their season with a 3-1 defeat against Westland Sports at Day's Park.

The disappointing campaign sees Swans finish 16th out of 18 in the Dorset Premier League.

Swans started on the front foot, playing attractive football and troubling the Sports defence and came close to scoring through Taylor Hibbs.

Sam Willcocks missed a great chance when one-on-one with the keeper following a superb pass from James Bland. But the lively Willcocks received his just rewards, firing home from just inside the box to put his side ahead.

It was then the turn of Aaron Atkinson to miss the target following a good run.

Westland came close to the equaliser when Phil Ormrod missed with a free header and again Ormrod was denied by Swans stopper Cam Geard, before Josh Payne struck the post.

With just a minute before half-time centre back Ormrod headed the equaliser at the far post.

Swans again went close when Willcocks beat a couple of players but hit the side netting.

The superb Henry Counsell saved his side with a last-ditch tackle as the Sports player pulled the trigger.

However in the 65th minute Josh Johns fired his side ahead for the first time. Sam Beale had a great chance to equalise but hit keeper Sam Plumley's legs when through on goal.

Westland's Payne hit a long range shot to secure the points and condemn the Swans to another home defeat.

Swans: Geard, Bartlett, Counsell, Chapman (Magnier, 35), Hibbs, Brassington, Beale, Bland, Atkinson (Moss 70), Willcocks, Streams.
