 No Christmas cheer for Swifts

Stourport Swifts 1 Worcester City 2 MPL Sat 26th December Att: 300

Swifts nine match unbeaten run came to an abrupt end as battling Worcester City took all three points in this Boxing Day derby.

Swifts usual fast start did not materialise, and it was the visitors who threatened first, with Andy Nicol’s overhead kick skidding wide, before Chris Withington burst through a static Swifts defence to slide past Richards and inside the left hand post to put Worcester in front in the ninth minute.

Swifts did manage to respond, and Drew Canavan shot tamely at Dan Jezeph after some neat footwork from MacPherson, before Taylor Cordell surged forward from the right to put in a good cross, but Canavan again was off target with his header. Jack Watts then almost levelled after he jinked past two defenders on the byline, but chipped his shot onto the roof of the net.

Bailey Fuller was proving a thorn in the side of the Worcester defence from the right, and first Kirk Layton shot over the top after his fine cross was half cleared, then Canavan again missed the target after Fuller drove in a low cross. Matt Hanson stung Jezeph’s fingertips with a fierce 20 yard effort, then Watts went close, and Slevin’s long range effort was also saved as Swifts pressed hard for an equaliser as half time approached.

Fuller again opened the City defence five minutes into the second half, but his low cross avoided both Watts and Canavan in the box. Sean Brain then tested Richards in the 54th minute with a reminder that Worcester still posed a threat, then had the ball in the Swifts net, which was ruled out by the linesman’s flag.

Swifts finally levelled in the 65th minute when Canavan forced in from close range after more good work from Fuller. Worcester had another decent chance when Townsend shot narrowly wide, then with ten minutes to go Aaron Roberts put them back in front after Swifts failed twice to clear a corner.

The situation got worse for Swifts when Martin Slevin was red carded for a foul on Aaron Birch, leaving them to play out a frantic  last five minutes with ten men.

Wollacott hat trick wins it for Swifts

Stourport Swifts 4 Shepshed Dynamo 3  FA Vase Round 3 Sat 19th December  Att: 280

Swifts skipper Ryan Wollacott stepped up to fire Stourport Swifts into Round 4 of the Buildbase FA Vase with a hat trick that left battling Shepshed gasping.

Nick Macpherson blasted Swifts in front with just four minutes on the clock when he was first to react to force in Canavan’s free kick, and Wollacott was on hand to dive in and  head in Slevin’s corner just 8 minutes later to put Swifts in the driving seat. More drama was to follow when Bailey Fuller’s corner from the right curled in to leave Shepshed keeper Matt White scrambling to turn it onto the bar, and Wollacott was on hand again to rifle home from close range to put his side three in front.

Shepshed responded strongly, and Jake King shot narrowly wide with Dom Richards stranded, then Matt Melrose gave his side some hope when his looping header crept in in the 29th minute. Jack Watts could have restored the breathing space just before the break, but his chip dropped just over the bar after he created havoc on the byline to open the Shepshed defence.

The visitors took control early in the second half, and Liam Canavan fired smartly into the top corner from ten yards out to make it 3-2 and set up a tense finish. Shepshed had come back from 2-0 down in the previous round against Worcester City, and as the tension grew for the Swifts, Wollacott was on hand again to head home from Fuller’s corner and make it 4-2 with 15 minutes to go.

Shepshed refused to go quietly, and the Swifts defence led a charmed life as both Reece Morris and Canavan saw their goalbound efforts scrambled clear. Their efforts were rewarded when skipper Jake Betts set up a grandstand finish to make it 4-3 with 9 minute to go,  but the Swifts held on to make the 4th Round, which will be played on 9th January.
