Stourport Swifts got away to the worst possible start when Lewis Gwilliams dropped a simple cross to present Coventry striker Kai Williams with a simple tap in after two minutes, and fourteen minutes later Williams was on hand to make it 2-0 when he slid home Mykel Beckley's cross at the far post.

Swifts worked hard to get back into the match, and earned just reward when Phillips was brought down in the box and Shilvock stepped up to pull a goal back from the spot just before half time. Phillips, Maund and Robinson all went close as Swifts dominated the second half, but failed to find an equaliser.

  Highgate United 4 Stourport Swifts 0     MPL  Tues 6th September       Att : 88

Swifts went down to four second half goals after failing to take their chances to win this match.Joe Robinson, Joe Phillips and Ben Maund could have made this a very different affair, but failed to take the glut of chances that came their way. After the interval Macauley Manning turned the game Highgate's way with a superb 40 yard chip over Mark Malanaphy, and Mark Adadio made it 2-0 six minutes later. Once again Swifts smart approach play failed to pay off, with Maund, Hanson and Phillips all missing the opportunity to get the Swifts back in the match. Nathan Corry made it 3-0 after 66minutes, and Josh Hawker netted a late penalty after wager brought down Corry in the box.

Alvechurch 1 Stourport Swifts 1  MPL Sat 3rd September    Att:  154  

 Stourport Swifts fought back against 10 man Alvechurch after falling a goal behind late on to snatch a point.

Alvechurch saw full back Mike Wardle sent off after 34 minutes for his second bookable offence, earlier leaving Joe Robinson in a heap and then taking out Jim Hanson. Alvechurch still saw the most of the chances, with Turton and Nadat both going close early in the second half. Jordan Nadat hit the Swifts crossbar after 53 minutes, but with 16 minutes left it was substitute Luke Paskin who rose above the Swifts defence to head in Pendley's deep free kick from 10 yeards out. The game looked to be over with Swifts lacking attacking ideas despite some neat approach play, until Matt Fulloway was judged to have been pushed in the box by Mark Smith, and late sub Ben Maund stepped up to blast high past Paul Evans in the Alvechurch goal and give his side a point.

 Stourport Swifts 3   Westfields 4      F A Cup Extra Preliminary Round        Attendance 119

Stourport Swifts crashed out of the F A Cup to an injury time penalty from Craig Jones.

Westfields substitute Cirdic Grant turned the match when he entered the fray with15 minutes to go.

With the score at 2-2, Grant scored one and was brought down by Swifts keeper Mark Malanaphy for the crucial penalty with the game looking set for a replay.

Stourport had taken the lead in the 6th minute when their opening pressure paid off, with Bailey skipping past Sam Plane to pull back for skipper Joe Robinson to slide past Kieron Blackburn in the Westfields goal.

Swifts spurned two more good chances before Westfields hit back with two goals in two minutes on the half hour.

The first came when Swifts defenders stopped as it looked a clear push from Thomas on Beaumont, but no whistle came and Thomas crossed for Jamie Molyneaux to tap home from close range. The second came when Thomas again escaped Beaumont, and squared for former Swifts man James Baldwin to slide in at the far post to score.

After the break both sides missed early chances but Swifts were back on level terms when Robinson dived in bravely to head in off the underside of the bar to make it 2-2. The introduction of Grant swung the match the visitors way and with 5 minutes to go he weaved his way past 3 defenders to slide past Malanaphy.

Matt Fulloway snatched another equaliser for the Swifts with a close range header with a minute left, but in injury time up stepped Jones to score from the spot and put Westfields through.
