Bristol Manor Farm vs AFC Totton – 30/11/22, 7.45pm KO

Lee Lashenko’s Bristol Manor Farm host AFC Totton at The BS3 Services Stadium as they look to bounce from the crazy events of Saturday down on the South Coast. Here you can read Jack Davies’ latest match preview.


Nickname – The Stags
Stadium – Testwood (109 miles)
Founded – 1886
Manager – Jimmy Ball
Star man – Matty Burrows
Notable former player – Baily Cargill
Last season – 6th
Last match – 6-1 win over Tavistock
Fun fact – They reached the Fa Cup second round in the 2011/12 season where they lost to Bristol Rovers.

The Stags:

AFC Totton are riding high and are finding goals easy to come by of late. Matty Burrows is fresh of a first half hattrick in a game that also saw Ethan Taylor grab a brace. They have only conceded 11 in the league this season too. Goalkeeper Lewis Noice, being a massive part of that stability.

The Farm:

The Farm saw a much improved display last time out despite the result and were back amongst the goals. Defender Josh Ford now has four for the season and winger Marcus Day was back on the scoresheet, despite dropping to the substitutes bench. Skipper Jake Gosling has scored in each of his last three games on the Portway.

The Form:

The Portwaymen will be reeling from the scarcely believable heartbreak of the weekend but will be buoyed by the performance as they look to end their recent woes. Totton had gone a few without a win themselves before their emphatic 6-1 victory at the weekend and will be looking to cement their charge towards the summit.
