Townsend adds two more

Swifts manager Quentin Townsend has successfully secured the signatures of Matt Gardner and Ethan Moran  to give his depleted squad a much needed boost.

In addition, Harry Higginson has rejoined the Swifts from Barwell and also James Dutton from Kidderminster Harriers Academy

Gardner, who joins from Racing Club Warwick, is a proven MPL goalscorer, and took a flying start with two goals against Bewdley Town on Tuesday night.  Moran comes in from Stourbridge, who he has been with since the start of the season. “Matt will give us the cutting edge we have been missing in front of goal, and Ethan will be a threat for us as he is always looking to go past defenders” said Townsend.

Townsend also expects at least one more addition in the next week.

First of all congratulations to Stone Old Alleynians and Hanley Town for keeping our hopes alive in the FA Cup.

Stone saw off Anstey Nomads at the first attempt to earn a tough second qualifying round tie at Leamington.

Hanley Town beat Hinckley Leicester Road in a replay last night and will receive Chasetown a week on Saturday.

It was also good to see a healthy crowd and no doubt a good television audience for Lichfield City v Nuneaton Borough on Saturday. I know there is a lot of preparation needed for a game such as this so well done to all concerned and the national exposure can have only been good for the league.
