The story from a club that has seen success at the highest level of youth football and done so much for the community. A club that has been forced off the ground were so many young players have came and gone by a landlord who does not care the community.
Please read below for the recent event and why we are making this appeal.
For 45 years of my life I have known the Brae Field as my "Field of Dreams". I have loved every match played, every win and defeat, every coaching session, all the laughter and exhilaration felt, every minute on what for me is hallowed ground.
For the past 28 years I have been at the helm of Sion Swifts and thousands of kids and adults have graced the Brae turf and enjoyed their football experiences whilst making new friends and lasting relationships. For me there is nothing better than when you see hundreds of kids playing happily on the two pitches. I always believed that the football pitches and changing facilities at the Brae would be developed.
This is and should be our home of football. Sadly and with deep regret we have been forced to abandon any notions and dreams that we may have had, through no fault of our own. The verbal abuse, with such venom and hatred, that was hurtled at myself, players and kids on Thursday evening at the Brae was nothing short of disgraceful as we were told by the current owner to "Get off my F......g land" with some kids going home very shaken by the incident.
For the past two years we have been put out of the Brae four times and I have tried to appease and work with the owner but enough is enough. With sadness, deep regret and tears in my eyes I have to say that I am devastated that we will never be back at my "Field of Dreams." We never got to score our last goal at the majestic Brae Field.
We will now have to look at alternative ground and would ask that people support us in our quest. If anyone can help us find a new home we would be forever indebted.
