MATCH REPORT: Bristol Manor Farm 1-2 Lymington Town

A Stephen Walker brace gave in-form Lymington all three points against Manor Farm at The BS3 Services Stadium, writes Jack Davies.

With 248 spectators filling the BS3 seats, it was Lymington who stole the show with the aforementioned Walker sending the Linnets home as a side who are now unbeaten in 10 league matches. It was a fairly even start from both sides on Non-League Day, but Lymington managed to sneak the ball home at the back post – despite the Farmers best appeals for a possible offside flag. It was one goalscoring centre back to another just a minute later as Josh Ford headed in the equaliser for Farm to send the sides in at half-time level. The keeper Skrzyniarz came out to collect the ball but ended up in no man’s land, and Ford had the simple task of heading into the empty net.

Owen Howe and Aron Robbins both had quilt-edged chances in the second period to take the lead, with the former striking over and latter heading wide of the target. The captain Walker would have the final say in the match. In similar fashion to his first, the defender rose highest at the back post to nod past Ben John in the Farm goal. Plenty of possession would follow for the home side, but the Lymo defence held firm to claim all three points on tough afternoon at The BS3 Services Stadium.
