Swifts suffer defeat at Westfields

Westfields 3 Stourport Swifts 1  Saturday 17th November   Att: 166

Things looked rosy for Stourport Swifts after they took an early lead in the 6th minute of this match when Matt Hanson was on hand to blast in from seven yards out following a corner from Martin Slevin.

But the lead lasted only another six minutes when Dom Richards parried out a fierce free kick from Westfields skipper Craig Jones, and Ben Hayes was on hand to head home from close range before the Swifts defence could react.

Swifts were without leading scorer Jack Downing and playmaker Drew Canavan, as well as captain Shaun Griffiths, but after Westfields threatened to take control, testing Richards again through Jamie Molyneux and Keanu Cooper, they hit back to come close themselves when Martin Slevin shot narrowly wide after a cross from Danks on the left,  and Nick Macpherson fired fiercely over the top from the edge of the box.

Westfields took the lead in the last minute of the first half when the Swifts defence failed to clear a right wing corner and Molyneux drove in via a deflection to make it 2-1.

Swifts pressed hard after the break to get level, with Cooke and Lewis Platt both going close, but Westfields increased their lead with their first real attack of the second half when Fulloway was caught in possession and Cooper crossed for Ben Hayes to drill his second goal of the game past Richards with a low angled drive.

Manager Quentin Townsend introduced new signings Kyle Belmonde and Callum Devlin after 65 minutes, and both showed promise, but Swifts could not get the goal they needed to get back in contention.

 SWIFTS: Richards, Cumming, Fulloway, Matt Hanson, Platt, Jim Hanson, Slevin Layton, Danks, Cooke, MacPherson. SUBS USED: Belmonte, Devlin, Joe Hanson

Swifts are at home on Saturday to Coventry United, kick off 3.00pm
