Swifts win cup thriller

Matamata Swifts have navigated the first hurdle of New Zealand sport’s oldest knock-out cup competition, the ISPS Handa Chatham Cup, after a thrilling 5-4 extra time victory over Auckland-based side, Internationale FC. The Swifts’ attacking prowess and defensive frailties were on show again, but this was a match the home team should have comfortably wrapped up in regulation time. That they didn’t meant the rowdy local crowd got a good...

The Challenge Matamata Swifts Ladies play their first game against a non-Melville United side, which will be a nice change. Find out...

Swifts mean goals in 2017

But not always at the right end… If you want to see goals in this season’s Loaded WaiBOP Premiership you’d better make sure you follow Matamata Swifts. Their second round match, at Hamilton’s Melville United, saw the teams trade eight goals. This followed ten goals in last Saturday’s opener. Unfortunately this time the Swifts didn’t find themselves on the right side of the final score line, losing 5-3. They let Melville out to a...

The teams continued to trade goals in the second half and when the reserves got their noses in front with only minutes remaining, thanks to...
