Watch this fantastic free kick from Tawny Owl’s Dave Slattery against Shield & Dagger in the Swindon & District League Premier Division.

Slattery showed his class to cleverly curl the ball over the wall and into the Shield & Dagger net.

Shield & Dagger took the lead from Jonny Coole’s amazing free-kick but Tawny Owl eventually cruised to a 5-2 victory with goals from Jamie Sheppard, Dave Slattery (2), Kenny Hawkins and Paddy Slattery. Dave Toomey scored Dagger’s other goal.

Tawny Owl star AJ Sahota was delighted with the win especially as his side only had 11 players to choose from.

He said: “We were down to the bare bones because our joint manager Gio De Sando let us down at the last minute with a mystery illness.

“That left us with just 11 players and no subs so it was an even greater feeling to win in the circumstances.”
