SWANS sealed the spoils in an eight-goal bonanza at Day’s Park, triumphing 5-3 over Dorset Premier League rivals Sturminster Newton United.

The hosts made a dream start after only four minutes when Joe Clark scored from the penalty spot.

However, a minute later full-back Tom Chapman sustained a hamstring injury and had to be replaced by Sam Beale.

The contest then exploded into life with four goals in eight minutes, Stuart Frear and George Coleman put Stur ahead then Beale headed in the equaliser from a Cam Barnes corner.

Darren Spiller headed the visitors into the lead to make it 3-2 in their favour just before the interval.

Swans were much improved in the second half and skipper Paul Best equalised following superb work from Barnes and Neemo Nixon.

Then, following a corner from Barnes, Ogun Gundogdu hit the underside of the bar but Dave Best was on hand to head the Swans ahead.

The hosts were now firmly in the driving seat and secured the points when man of the match Ocean Smith played a superb pass to Cam Barnes, who coolly slotted it past the keeper for his side's fifth goal to complete the comeback.

Elsewhere, Swans’ reserves suffered a 7-1 defeat against Bournemouth Sports reserves at Chapel Gate in Dorset League Division One.
