SWIFTS AIM FOR BIG FINISH

Coventry Spinx 1 Stourport Swifts 3  MPL Saturday 22nd April   Att: 112

Having banished relegation worries last week, Stourport Swifts produced one of their best performances of the season to leave Coventry Spinx stunned, and avenge their injury time defeat at home in November.

Swifts again paid for a slow start to fall behind after just seven minutes when Nathan McGarity fired home unchallenged with the Swifts defence calling for offside.

Paul Hurrell scored just his second goal of the season to put Swifts level after twenty two minutes, when he forced home from close range following a Phillips corner.Five minutes later Swifts hit the woodwork twice in five seconds when first Perry struck the post following up a shot from Sweeney which was saved by Sphinx keeper Scott Dutton, and Alex Smith blasted against the bar from twenty yards after the scramble that followed.

After ten minutes of the second half Swifts went in front when Dan Sweeney drove low past Dutton after more good work from the energetic Alex Perry. Joe Phillips and Aaron Lloyd both missed good chance before Swifts made it a comfortable three points when Jim Hanson finished off a sweeping ten pass move from just outside the box.

 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.
