Bristol Manor Farm 4 Fleet Town 1


Manor Farm finally found their scoring boots in the second half of this match after wasting a couple of golden opportunities in the first 45.


Fleet Town started the match brighter than their hosts with Ben John turning behind a good effort by Kof Halliday in the 10th minute and Enow Ojong heading just over after 19.


Ashley Kington then clipped the top of the Fleet wall from a 23rd minute free-kick but Farm failed to convert from close range from the resultant corner.


With two minutes left in the half Owen Howe should have scored when put through by Chas Hemmings but the Farm striker sliced wide of Sam Williams left hand upright.


Farm got off to a great start in the second half with Owen Howe controlling a forward pass on the edge of the area before rifling the ball home for 1-0.


Good work down the right by Lewis Bamford in the 52nd minute fed Owen Howe in the box but Williams saved well at his near post.


Just before the hour mark Fleet Town pulled the scores level when Kof Halliday poked home in the box from a good through ball.


Minutes later Farm got their noses in front once again when Jordan Rodgers took a great header down from Owen Howe and closely weaved his way past three players before slamming the ball home high into the net.


Another great individual goal by Lewis Bamford sealed the win for Manor Farm with seven minutes left to play when he broke superbly down the right and carried the ball deep into the Fleet Town penalty area before squeezing the ball in at the far post under the goalkeeper.


After missing three great chances to score, Owen Howe put the icing on the cake, scoring his second of the afternoon in the 89th minute by taking a great forward knock from Chas Hemmings and finishing emphatically past Williams from 18 yards out.
