Bristol Manor Farm Football Club is thrilled to announce the signing of forward George Kellow ahead of home local derby clash.
Kellow, a household name in the local football scene, brings with him an impressive track record and a reputation as a ‘club legend’ having spent many years with neighbours Cribbs FC. Last season Kellow played a big part in their Hellenic Premier Division triumph, but has now pledged his future to Manager Lee Lashenko’s Farmy Army.
Speaking to the club for the first time, new signing Kellow said: “I’ve had some great years at Cribbs, with last year being a particular highlight, but I think it’s fair to say that over the past few months, style-wise we have grown apart and it was time for a new challenge.
“Having lived and played in Bristol my entire life, Manor Farm has always been a big club, and I can’t wait to get going on Saturday. As a new player, I know that I have a lot of work to do here, and I want the supporters to see me as someone who wants to contribute positively to the team’s success.”
The timing of this acquisition couldn’t be more perfect, as Lashenko continues to bolster his squad for the highly-anticipated local derby against Paulton Rovers. He admitted that the move to bring Kellow to The NL Services Stadium was an opportunity ‘too good to pass up on’.
Speaking about his new signing, Lashenko expressed his satisfaction to the club on Friday afternoon: “I’m really excited to bring George to the club, and it’s certainly a signing that will give us an added boost.
“If I’m honest, I think George needed a fresh start, and I think he can really call The Creek home as we look to build on our strong start to the season. Cribbs, and their Manager Richard Luffman, have handled the transfer in a really classy way. I want to thank them for the process and have given us and George their best wishes.
“Their drawback of course is that they will have made a rival stronger, but in these situations you can only wish them well when they do leave. I can’t wait to work with him.”
Please join us in giving new signing George a warm welcome to the Farm, and we wish him all the best during his time at the club.
