MICK Wood was over the moon with his Stapenhill side’s victory at Highfield Rangers last week as the Swans recorded a second successive win over top teams in the Leicestershire Senior League.
Paul Furniss’ free kick won it for Wood’s hard-working Stapenhill a week on after a terrific 4-3 win at title-favourites Rothley Imperial.
“The best team won again,” said Wood. “We got just what we deserved – they had chances and we had chances but we looked strong and we looked good.”
The Swans have lost midfielder Gareth Langford, who has rejoined Gresley, but could make signings soon.
Wood will hope any new arrivals fit in with what has become an excellent dressing room.
“The spirit in the dressing room is great,” said the Swans boss. “And the spirit around the whole club is fantastic.
“Anything can happen with eight games to go and we really could’ve done with a fixture against one of the teams in and around us in the table.”
Stapenhill are without a game tomorrow but the club’s reserve side are at home to Silverdale, kick-off 2pm.
The reserves also have a chance of bringing some silverware back to Edge Hill next week when they contest the final of the Staffordshire County League’s Division Two Cup.
The final is at Norton Cricket Club on Wednesday, kick-off 7.30pm, when they face Norton reserves.
The Swans’ youth team host Caterpillar on Wednesday in the third round of the Pukka Pies Cup, kick-off 7.30pm.
