Swifts take hard earned point
Newark Flowserve 0 Stourport Swifts 0 MPL Sat 8th Feb Att: 266
Stourport Swifts battled hard for a well earned point at top of the table Newark last Saturday.
Keeper Dominic Richards was again on top form as he produced four outstanding saves from Newark’s dangerous front line, one each from Dan Meadows and Kyle Dixon, and two in the second half from Ben Hutchinson, who has 20 goals so far this season.
After Richards denied Meadows with just four minutes on the clock, Jack Downing almost gave Swifts the lead two minutes later after a neat link up with MacPherson, but was denied by a last ditch tackle from Mitchell Robinson as he was about to pull the trigger. Meadows and Hutchinson both went close as Newark pressure mounted with a strong wind at their backs, but Swifts looked solid in defence with Fulloway and Timmins in no mood to give anything away.
In the second half Mark Danks saw his fierce effort blocked after a Swifts free kick, and Downing’s loose first touch saw his chance lost when put through on goal. Newark piled on the pressure in their search for a goal, but Martin Slevin and Joe Billingham worked tirelessly in the Swifts midfield to shut out any danger. With five minutes left, full back Taylor Cordell was dismissed for a second bookable offence, but Swifts ten men held out for their third draw in a row.
SWIFTS: Richards, Cordell, Fulloway, Timmins, Platt, Downing, Slevin, Billingham, Danks, O’Neill-Martin, MacPherson. SUBS USED: Brett, Lees, Joe Hanson
