Bristol Manor Farm Football Club is deeply shocked and saddened to learn of the serious roadside collision involving our good friends, Roman Glass St. George FC, and its players on Friday night. The incident occurred following the Glass’ victory over Longlevens in Gloucestershire, and our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by this terrible incident.

This news hits particularly close to home as there is both current and former Bristol Manor Farm players and staff who were involved in the incident. Current First-Team player, Shea Bennington-Mannings, is on dual registration with Roman Glass and was taken to Southmead Hospital for immediate treatment. Moreover, the incident also left former assistant Tony Beecham, former forward Lewis Leigh-Glichrist, and Finley Cummings, the brother of our very own Alfie Cummings, deeply affected by the terrible accident. We want to express our heartfelt sympathy and solidarity with these individuals and their families.

We have always had a great relationship with Roger Hudd and his fantastic football club, proudly bearing the Roman Glass logo on our shirts and at our Creek home. In times like these, we want to extend our full support to our friends at the Glass in any way possible. We join the wider footballing community in wishing everyone affected a speedy recovery.

Our thoughts are with you, and Bristol Manor Farm is ready to assist in any way we can.
