Polymac Packaging League Cup Final
Walsall Wood lifted the League Cup with a 2-1 win over Coleshill Town at Bescot Stadium. The Division champions took the lead in the 32nd minute through substitute Joey Butlin, on for the injured Tony Clarke. The introduction of Joel Grandison off the bench for The Colemen changed the momentum of the game and Joe Smith brought them levl in the 66th minute. Coleshill were dominant following the equaliser but couldn’t get a second and 10 minutes from time Butlin was adjudged to have been fouled in the area. Paul Sullivan made no mistake from the spot to send the Cup to The Wood.

Swifts Announce Junior Programme
Stourport Swifts Junior Programme gets under way this season with the introduction of FIVE levels of Junior teams in action.
Headed up by qualified FA Coach Steve Shepherd and playing most of their games at Stourport High School, the teams are already attracting a host of local talent.
There will be a team of ‘Mini Swifts’ for 7-9 year olds, plus Under 11’s, Under 12’s, two Under 13 teams, and an Under 15 side.
Chairman Pip Hanson said ‘’We have been looking to get this under way for some time. Steve is a very experienced coach and his knowledge and enthusiasm will help us establish a pipeline of young players coming through in all age groups, and raise our profile throughout the area.’’
