On July 16th Swansea City came to Richmond expecting another easy win during a preseason game. They were up against an in season  Richmond Kickers. The assumption certainly had merit. Swansea City plays in the Premier League of England which is arguably the best and most watched league in the world.

Instead of an easy victory the Swans found a 2-0 defeat and a 90 minute weather delay of lightening and rain. Around half the fans made it to the end of the game, braving at times was really nasty weather. As one of those that stuck around I can say it was worth the effort.

Kickers play again this Saturday against FC Cincinnati with a 7 PM kickoff.
