Goals galore at the Domain

The Matamata Domain was the place to be over the weekend as local fans saw 31 goals scored in four games involving Matamata Swifts teams.

Rovers had earlier scored from set pieces at each end of the first half, sandwiching goals from Dayne Willemsen and...

Slow start to 2018 for Swifts

Richardson Resigns

It is with huge regret that we announcement the resignation of Paul Richardson as head coach of Comag Matamata Swifts. This decision is effective immediately. Paul took over the team at the tail-end of the 2015 season and helped avoid relegation from the WaiBOP Premiership. The following two seasons saw the Swifts performing at the right end of the table, with a third place finish in 2016 followed by second in 2017. We’d like to...

Swifts win final home game

Comag Matamata Swifts have won their final home game of the 2017 season to move within sight of a top two finish in the Loaded WaiBOP Premiership.
