Bristol Manor Farm vs Lymington Town – 25/03/23, 3 pm KO.
It’s Non-League Day on Saturday, and Jack Davies looks ahead to what will be another huge game at The BS3 Services Stadium between Manor Farm and Lymington Town.
The home side is coming in off the back of the monumental 3-2 win over relegation rivals Cinderford last time out. Lymington looked set for a real scrap themselves pre-Christmas but have had a fine new year. They’ve only lost one of their last eight league games, including recent away wins against Bishops Cleeve and Exmouth.
Despite the upturn in form, The Linnets will know a Farm win could really drag them back into a battle and they’ll be right up for this one. The reverse fixture is famously known for 16-year-old Will Gallagher becoming Farm’s youngest scorer, in a 4-2 win at The Sports Ground.
