SWIFTS looked impressive, losing only one of their first 14 league outings and at the same time making progress in both cup competitions.
They were never quite as good after the 4-0 cup defeat at Bassingbourn however, and managed to win only three of their remaining 12 league fixtures to drop off the promotion pace.
They drew twice with champions Mepal Sports and beat the runners-up March Rangers, but were ultimately undone by their poor record in the second half of the campaign.

RESERVES also faded in the second half of the season, winning just two of their last 12 matches as they faded into eighth spot.
Immediately prior to that they had won four league matches in succession, beating March Rangers (second), Haddenham Rovers Reserves (fifth), Ely Crusaders (third) and Burwell (sixth) in the process.
They took only one point from their last five outings however, and it is difficult to know what to expect next time around.
