Swifts flying as Ladies hit double figures

Big wins for Comag Matamata Swifts and Challenge Matamata Swifts Ladies lit up the weekend for our community’s football club.

An early Dayne Willemsen strike and a Scott Parsonage header saw the Swifts leading comfortably at the break. The gale...

Cup Kings – for now

We caught up with Comag Matamata Swifts coach, Paul Richardson, after Saturday’s 6-0 ISPS Handa Chatham Cup victory over Onehunga Mangere United. “I thought we were magnificent on Saturday,” said Richardson. “We wanted to go out there, test ourselves against a team from a higher league, put in a good performance and then see what happened. “To be fair, I don’t think anyone expected a result like that. We’ve been improving week...

Swifts win big in Chatham Cup

Matamata Swifts officially welcomed COMAG on board as naming rights sponsor of the club’s first team with a resounding 6-0 victory at the Domain over Onehunga Mangere United in the latest round of the ISPS Handa Chatham Cup. The Auckland-based visitors play one league higher than Matamata so entered the match as warm favourites.

What’s Happening – May 13/14

Swifts win tense local derby

COMAG Matamata Swifts continued their excellent recent form with a 3-2 win at neighbours Cambridge on Saturday and now sit just one point off the lead of the Loaded WaiBOP Premiership. The Swifts began with a bang with a third consecutive fast start in a game that increasingly became a tense and niggly affair. Leading scorer Chris Walker slipped home two goals inside the first ten minutes to give Matamata an ideal beginning against...

What’s Happening – May 6/7
