Swords back with a bang

IN Swords Celtic's first league game for four weeks, the home side made light of atrocious conditions to record an emphatic win - their eighth on the bounce.

After a scoreless first half, Philip Nolan came off the bench and lined up in attack beside Robbie Farrell, with Barry Caulfield moving to the wing, and from there Celtic took control. Farrell bagged a brace in the space of five minutes, with Nolan having a big part to play in both goals, and then on the hour mark he netted from a rebound to make it 3-0. Ten minutes later, Simon Madden capitalised on a defensive error to round the keeper for Celtic's fourth. Best for Swords in a quality display in a mudbath were Keith Reilly, Caulfield and Shane Byrne, with Nolan making a huge impact after joining from the sideline. SWORDS CELTIC: Brat Turker, Bernard Smith, Niall Kinsella, Ben McQuillan, Keith Reilly, Anto White, Mark Gibson, Shane Byrne, Robbie Farrell, Barry Caulfield, Simon Madden. Subs: Philip Nolan, Jason Smith, Danny Monks.
