STOURPORT Swifts manager Mark Phillips was left frustrated after their fifth match in a row was cancelled due to bad weather.

Swifts travelled to Coventry Sphinx on Tuesday only for the referee to call the tie off 45 minutes before the game.

Phillips said: “Most of the pitch was fine but there was a particular patch of about two yards that if you put your foot in it, it went up to your shins.

"The referee took the decision that someone could break their leg if they went in it which you can understand.

"That was frustrating as we were told it was on."

Postponements mean Swifts now face a busy schedule, with the boss considering new signings to help in their run-in.

"We have 19 games to play by the end of April which is ridiculous," said Phillips.

"We will play Saturday, Tuesday, Thursday most weeks, so we are looking at bolstering the squad with some new signings.”

Swifts, who have been without a match since February 27, face Bromyard Town in the semi-final of the Worcestershire Infirmary Cup tomorrow (Thursday, March 15).

Phillips added: “I hope it is on. If not we'll turn out attention to Westfields on Saturday.”
