The Swifts have fallen to two late Cambridge strikes at the Matamata Domain in their latest pre-season friendly.
Both sides were missing players so it was a good opportunity for the coaching staff to mix things up a bit and have a good look at some younger faces.
The Swifts host HRFC Clube at the Domain next Saturday (kick-off: 2.45pm). The Federation League Division 1 kicks off on April 5.
In the curtain raiser, the visiting Waitakere United youth team defeated WaiBOP United’s youth team in the third of three ASB Youth League fixtures played at the Matamata Domain this summer.
