SWIFTS FINISH WITH A DRAW

Stourport Swifts 2 St. Andrews 2  MPL Saturday 29th April   Att:144

Stourport Swifts ended their MPL season with a home draw against St.Andrews and a 13th place finish.

Walsall Wood slipped through the relegation trapdoor on the last day of the season when they lost 4-0 at Westfields. Tividale and Brocton also go down.

Alvechurch finished MPL champions, eventually six points clear of second placed Coleshill Town.

Swifts took the lead in this match after just seven minutes when Jack Pearlman scored his first goal for the club, slotting in from closer range after keeper James Stallen spilled Hanson's cross from the left. Sweeney and Phillips both failed to increase Swifts' lead before the break, and Stallen did well to foil Sweeney and Phillips just after.

St Andrews drew level in the 74th minute when Sam Hollis forced home six yards out after Swifts twice failed to clear, but just two minutes later Swifts were back in front when Dan Sweeney blasted past Stallen from ten yards after Phillips' cross had come back off the bar.

With none minutes left, Mitch Fairhurst evade Beaumont on the left and crossed for Shay Brennan to head home his 42nd goal of the season and give his side a point.

 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.
