Bird is the word

Bristol Manor Farm Football Club is delighted to announce the return of Welsh attacker Jamie Bird. Bird left the Farm in February to join Barry Town United, but has since put pen-to-paper in signing a new contract here at Manor Farm. 

At the beginning of the 2020/21 Southern League season, Bird sustained a freak injury in the FA Cup against Cadbury Heath – which kept the forward out of first-team action.

In search of regaining his match fitness, Bird left Bristol Manor Farm to join Cymru Premier side Barry Town United in February.

This wasn’t his first spell at the Linnets, as Bird was a loanee from Cardiff City for Barry in the 2016/2016 season in which he made a strong impression at Jenner Park. Bird has also featured for Hereford FC, Merthyr Town FC and Croesyrceiliog A.F.C.

Bird made a handful of appearances during his spell, which included scoring against rivals Penybont in the 3-3 draw against rivals Penybont in April.

Speaking to the club, Bird commented: “I’m delighted to be back at the Creek, and I’m looking forward to the season starting up.

“Hopefully as a club we can achieve promotion this season, and on a personal note I’m hoping to contribute to double figure goals & assists.”

Bird now adds extra firepower to First-team Manager Lee Lashenko’s side, joining Owen Howe, Kyle Tooze, Lewis Leigh-Gilchrist, and Dean Stamp.

Welcome back to the Creek, Jamie! We look forward to seeing you pull on the shirt and scoring goals next season.
