ALVECHURCH have filled a fixture-free Saturday by arranging a Midland League Premier Division game with Stourport Swifts.

With both teams having been knocked out of the FA Cup, neither had a scheduled game this weekend, but now the two clubs will meet at Lye Meadow.

They had been due to play on February 11.

The switch means the Churchmen and Swifts will play each other twice in ten days as they go head-to-head at Walshes Meadow on Tuesday, September 13.

Alvechurch will be looking for a third win in a row after successive victories over the Bank Holiday to open their league account this season.

Manager Ian Long said: “I would much rather play than have a Saturday off so it’s good news we’ve been able to get the fixture organised against Stourport.

“It’s Non-League Day as well so hopefully we can build up a bit of interest and get the fans down to Lye Meadow.”

Non-League Day is a national campaign to raise the profile of grassroots football on a weekend when the Premier League and Championship have no action due to the international break. It will also be raising money for the Prostate Cancer UK charity.
