IT looks set to be a landmark occasion for Stourport Swifts on Saturday when they welcome Worcester City and their supporters to Walshes Meadow in the Isuzu FA Vase round of 16.

Just under 2000 spectators will pack into the ground with around 1500 of those being City fans, who will also fill the high street in the build-up and in the aftermath of the cup tie.

Swifts' manager Quentin Townsend admits the sheer number of people attending the game will cause an element of 'carnage' in regards to the logistical arrangements involved as Stourport take a step 'into the unknown'.

"There is no way of dressing it up," said Townsend. "I would suggest that if you are going to come to the game then get there a lot earlier than you would usually. Get there early and get into the town.

"Carnage is probably a good word for it! The players and officials will have the usual car park and rowing club car park, as for the rest of the fans, it will just be a case of park where you can locally and walk in.

"We have a marquee going up that will have a bar and food on offer, which will be predominantly for the city fans so they'll have their own bar and food section which will probably be open from 12.

"We have done everything we can in preparation but it is not going to be ideal given the sheer number of people coming. I cannot even envisage how 1900 supporters inside Walshes Meadow even looks like.

"I have never seen that sort of crowd at Stourport. I don't think we have had over 400 fans in for a game in five years of managing here so we are going into the unknown with it really but we can't wait for it, it's going to be some occasion."

The game is now close to a sell-out with only a handful remaining to purchase online. Tickets cannot be purchased on the day.
