Townsend looks to re build

Swifts manager Quentin Townsend has been forced into a rapid recruitment programme after several key players have left for pastures new. Top scorer Jack Watts has returned to Bishops Cleeve, skipper Ryan Wollacott has moved to Redditch United and winger Bailey Fuller has joined Stratford.

“It’s disappointing to lose them, but there is always the risk close season that we may see the departure of some players, especially to teams from higher up the non league ladder” said Townsend. 

The Swifts manager has moved fast, and has already secured Jack Downing from Alvechurch for a second spell at the Swifts. “Jack was a threat in every game he played for us, and we welcome him back. We will also be signing  centre backs Joe Hawkins from Tividale and Dan Noke from Studley, while striker Isaac Jagroop  joins from Highgate United, and winger Jordan Cox from Droitwich Spa . Jim Hanson will also return to training pre season, after breaking his ankle back in November. It must be some sort of record to be back from an injury like that after only missing four games!” quipped Townsend.
