SWIFTS GO DOWN AGAIN

Sporting Khalsa 5 Stourport Swifts 1   Tuesday 21st March MPL  Att: 40

Stourport Swifts went down to their second heavy loss in four days as their relegation threat deepened.

After a promising start in which Rion Francis -Mills squandered a golden chance then hit the crossbar with a looping header, it was Khalsa who took the lead when Michael Perks fired them in front after 14 minutes. Swifts competed well as the heavy rain made it tough going, with Phillips and Sweeney going close as they looked to get back on terms, but five minutes before the break, Luke Shearer bundled home from close range to put Khalsa two up.

Simeon Townsend exposed Swifts defensive shortcomings at set pieces again when he headed home from close range in the 65th minute, and top scorer David Meese added another 8 minutes later, with Shearer makng it 5-1 in injury time.Walsall Wood and Quorn both picked up a win and a draw respectively to make matters worse.

 SWIFTS ANNOUNCE NEW CHAIRMAN

Stourport Swifts elected Pip Hanson as their new Chairman at the Annual General Meeting on Friday 9th September.

Hanson was unanimously voted in on the night to replace Chris Reynolds, who sadly passed away in July. Chris's eldest son Paul, was also voted on to the Committee, along with Stuart Adey.

 Hanson, 53, is married with 4 boys, and lives in West Hagley. He is Managing Director of PSI Marketing in Stourbridge.

Pip was one of the four newcomers to the Swifts committee a year ago, and hopes to continue the Club's progress over the next few years. He will continue also in his position as Treasurer.

"We have a young and talented squad, and are looking to improve further on the field, and increase our income off it" said Hanson.

Pip's two eldest sons, Jim and Matt, have both played for the Swifts over the past year, with third eldest Joe, now 18 and looking to stake a claim.
