Beragh steal the points in unconvincing display thumbnailBeragh Swift's Richard Johnston in action against Enniskillen Santos.

BERAGH Swifts ran out 2-0 winners at home to Enniskillen Santos - but manager Keith Hamilton wasn't entirely impressed with his side's display.

Second-half goals from Michael Brown and James McKeown ensured the Swifts won and keeps the pressure on Division 1 leaders, Strathroy Harps, but Hamilton wants more from his players in future.

"I'm pleased about the result, however, I'm not impressed by our performance," he said.

"We started slowly and only a great save from our goalkeeper, Jordan Newell, kept the scores level at the break against a weakened Santos team.

"We just didn't get going, we were lethargic. Sometimes the team aren't so hot amongst the so-called 'weaker teams' and we need to improve.

"In the second-half we had lots of possession but still Santos had chances on the break."

Hamilton was mightily relieved then when Brown opened the scoring around the hour-mark with a fine individual effort, scoring from the edge of the 18-yard area.

"I knew when we went a goal ahead we would extend our scoreline," continued Hamilton," and he was right as Jamie McKeown doubled the advantage with 10 minutes to play after good work by Kyle McKane.
