Match Reports

AFC Wulfrunians 1 Stourport Swifts 2 MLP Saturday 28th November

Swifts produced a much improved perfomance to deliver a deserved 3 points against the Wulfs.

After dominating for much of the first half SWifts went in a goal down at the break after skipper Seagrove drilled a low shot in off the right hand post from a half cleared corner.

Swifts battled back to draw level after 63 minutes when Jack Bailey cut in from the left to deliver a low cross for Ben Maund to steer home at the near post from six yard out. With ten minutes to go Swifts took the lead when a neat dummy from Joe Phillips allowed Maund to tee up James Hill to blast high into the net from 20 yards.

Both sides missed chances in the dying minutes, but Swifts held on for only their second win in the last 10 games.

Stourport Swifts 1 Bewdley Town 2 Worcester Infirmary Cup Tuesday 24th November

Swifts crashed again to local rivals Bewdley in a close fought match last night.

Tom Connolly put Bewdley ahead after Luke Morris' left wing cross left Swifts defenders watching to score with a far post header.

Darren Steadman pulled off a fine double save from Shilvock and Maund as Swifts pressed for an equaliser, but Bewdley held on to lead at the break.

Ten minutes into the second half Bewdley substitute Jon Seekings raced clear of the Swifts defence and beat Richards from 12 yards out.

Swifts finally mounted some prolonged pressure, and Ben Maund reduced the deficit with a crisp left foot drive inside Steadman's far post.

Steadman again saved well from Maund and Joe Phillips, tipping one fierce shot onto the bar, as Bewdley held on to move into the next round.

Shepshed Dynamo 2 Sourport Swifts 0 MLP Saturday 31st October

Stourport Swifts made it seven games without a win in the MPL after his 2-0 defeat at Shepshed.

A competitive but dull match saw the Swifts muster only one shot on target in the 90 minutes, and after a turgid first half Shepshed striker Michael Reeve made the difference with two goals in ten minutes after the break.

Swifts midfielder Joe Robinson also saw red after a second bookable offence in the 80th minute to complete a miserable afternoon.

Stourport Swifts 1 Heanor Town 2 MLP Saturday 24th October

Stourport Swifts produced their their best performance for several weeks, but still finished on the losing end of a 2-1 scoreline.

With several players missing through injury, Stourport began strongly and pinned the visitors back in their own half in the early stages.

Reece Shilvock saw his goalbound effort blocked in the 11th minute, Jack Bailey's lob fell just wide, and James Hill skied his effort from 8 yards out when it looked easier to score.Ben Townsend in the Heanor goal saved another Bailey effort before SWifts finally took the lead after 39 minutes. James Hill's 20 yard free kick came back off the wall and Joe Phillips drilled home from the edge of the box for his second goal in 5 days.

As the Swifts looked like going in at half time in the lead, Ashley Bunn made a mess of his headed clearance, and the ball fell to Jamie Clarke 9 yards out, who made no mistake, scoring low past Richards' right hand to make the scores level at the break.

Early in the second half Bailey again saw a left foot shot fly just wide, and Phillips should have done better when he was put through by Shilvock, but fluffed his finish.

On 55 minutes Heanor went ahead when Bunn and Wollacott hesitated and substitute Nathan Benger took advantage to set up Jay Cooper, who fired past Richards from 12 yards.

Swifts pushed hard to get back into the game but Heanor hung on for the win which keeps them in second place.]
