Bristol Manor Farm hit Bishop Sutton for seven in their rampant Pre-Season victory on Wednesday night, writes Jack Davies.
Farm controlled much of the opening quarter of the game, and we were rewarded from a set-play. Josh Ford reacted quickest to a loose ball in the area to lash home for the defenders second goal in as many games. Farm weren’t letting up and continued their onslaught on the Sutton goal. Ben Bament and Luco Ponsillo both had efforts saved before Farm doubled the lead after half an hour. Bament was played through after excellent work from Jayden Nielsen and the striker lifted the ball over the onrushing keeper for 2-0.
The second half followed much the same blueprint as the first but would prove to be a much more clinical 45 for Lashenko’s men. That man Bament opened the second half scoring with his 4th of pre-season already, after pouncing on a rebound inside the area. Midfield general Theo Llewellyn had done everything but score in his impressive spell at the Farm so far but just before the hour mark his moment finally came. The Welshman rifling home from the edge of the area for 4-0. Bament would have had the chance to get his hattrick from the penalty spot had he not been subbed off barely a minute earlier. His replacement Alfie Cummings assumed responsibility and tucked away his first for the club. The Sutton goalkeeper was doing all he could to keep the scoreline down but was powerless to stop Nielsen getting the late brace that his overall performance certainly deserved. After swinging one in directly from a corner, he lashed home another for his second and Farm’s seventh.
