SWIFTS CHAIRMAN LOSES CANCER BATTLE
It is with great sadness that we report that Swifts Chairman Chris Reynolds passed away on Saturday, 23rd July, after a brave battle against cancer.
Chris had spent some 45 years as player, manager, committee member and Chairman of Stourport Swifts, has been our most loyal supporter, and has made many friends during his time at the helm of the club. He will be missed by them all. Our thoughts are with his family at this time.
SWIFTS GENERAL MANAGER HONOURED BY FA
John Mcdonald has been honoured by the Football Association for 50 Years of Service to Football.
McDonald, 70, was presented with a commemorative medal to mark his 50 years of service to the Swifts, at a presentation dinner held by the WFA.
McDonald has steered the Swifts through the Worcester, Kidderminster,West Midland, Alliance, Southern and Midland leagues in his 50 years, and has seen the Club grow from a single team playing on a field whch used to sport over 200 molehills before a match, to one of the leading clubs in the County, with two Senior teams and a ground and facilities to be proud of.
Chairman Chris Reynolds said "Mac has spent a huge amount of time and effort bringing this club to where it is today, and the players, committee, and the people of Stourport owe him a great deal for building Stourport Swifts to its current position. It is fantastic that the FA recognises this outstanding achievement."
SWIFTS RECORD CROWD BROKEN AGAIN

The previous record of 1,321 was set when Swifts hosted Hereford on Tuesday 27th August 2015, but a crowd of 1,972 for the Worcester v Villa match set another record.
