11.06.13 - SWANS HOST "SWANAGE FIGHT NIGHT"
The Club are delighted to announce that the Arthur Marsh Sports Hall at Day's Park will be hosting Swanage Fight Night on Saturday 20th July. The event sees a number of local Purbeck people go head to head in what promises to be a fun and entertaining night of white collar boxing. Current Swans Liam Currell and Dan Beeston are both on the card whilst ex-Swan Ricky King will also feature in one of eight bouts. The highlight being Joe Shepherd from Joes Gym go head to head with Springfield's Dan Lockwood, this fight tops the bill. Tickets are available from www.swanagefightnight.co.uk and they are selling fast with all Gold pakages nearly sold out already with over one month left before the event date.
07.06.13 - HOLT SET TO PERFORM DPL U-TURN?
It seems that Holt United may be set to stay in the DPL next season after withdrawing their recent withdrawal. The Gaunts Common outfit had expressed a desire to leave the League a week ago but now appeared to have made a dramatic u-turn. The DPL have yet to recieve written conformation of this new development, but if and when they do, the DPL could be back up to 17 teams for 2013/14.
In other news from the DPL, the League have announced that their sponsorship agreement with Magna Housing Association has come to an end after three years.
07.06.13 - SWANS DEDUCTED FURTHER THREE POINTS
Swans have been deducted a further three points and fined £200 after being unable to raise a side for the trip to Sherborne Town Reserves at the start of last month. As this is the Clubs second offence within one season, Swans will start next season as an associate DPL side and not a full member. The full member status will be re-instated for 2014/15 by the DPL Committee if Swans don't fall foul of the authorities next season. The Club would like to place on record their apologies to the DPL and to Sherborne Town for this episode.
31.05.13 - HOLT UNITED RESIGN FROM MAGNA DPL
The Magna Dorset Premier League looks set to contain only 16 teams for next season after Holt United withdrew from the League at last nights LMC meeting. The current DPL Cup holders have given no reason for their departure as yet, but they have indicated that the Club will contnue to run a side in the Bournemouth FA Hayward League.

Swans have featured in the top ten Non-League pictures taken by freelance photographer Stuart Tree who posts his work on the website wearesophoto.com. Stuart travelled to Swans FA Vase defeat at the hands of Newport Isle Of Wight back in October and has commented that the photos he took were some of his favourites from the season.

23.05.13 - CHICKERELL & WINCANTON SET TO LEAVE DPL
Two of Swans Magna DPL rivals seem set to leave the Division with Wincanton Town up a level to the Toolstation Western League One and Chickerell United down to the Senior League. Rumours have been abound for a number of weeks about the two mentioned Clubs, although official conformation by the DPL is still to be forthcoming.
In this weeks Dorset Echo, Chickerell Secretary Tony Elliott confirmed to the paper that his side were leaving the DPL due to the costs associated with playing at Weymouth College. The Chickens hope to return to their Stalls base and play in the Dorset Senior League next season. The full story can be read by Clicking Here
Wincanton Town had applied for promotion to Step 6 for the second time and after being turned down for 2012/13, this time it seems they have been successful. Winky's website is carrying the following message "Congratulations to Wincanton Town FC on promotion the Western Toolstation Div 1!! Well done to all involved. Now the real graft starts"
With Mere Town applying for promotion to the DPL it would seem that the League may go back to 17 sides with Poole Borough receiving a reprive after finishing bottom and Chickerell and Wincanton plying their trades elsewhere. We wish both the Chickens and Winky the very best in the future and hope our paths cross again sometime soon.
23.05.13 - THIRDS HOST POSSUM'S IN FRIENDLY
Swans 'A's League campaign may have come to an end last night, but the side still have one match left to play this season as they take on Dorset League Three side Portesham United in a Charity Friendly on Saturday.

The Dorset League Five match between Marnhull and Swans 'A' played last Saturday has been declared a home walkover in favour of Marnhull. Swans won the fixture 7-1, but owing to the fact that both the Reserves and First teams had to call off their games due to transport issues and a lack of available players, the game has been awarded to Marnhull. This action has meant that Pimperne Sports Society can't be caught at the top of the division so they will be crowned DL5 Champions. Well done to all at Pimperne on their League title.
