Hamworthy United vs Bristol Manor Farm – 10/01/23, 7:45pm KO.
Manor Farm make the long evening trip to Hamworthy as they attempt to get some much needed points, and Jack Davies is back again to preview the match.
Nickname – The Hammers
Stadium – The County Ground (75 miles)
Founded – 1970
Manager – Dan Cann
Star man – Sam Griffin
Last season – Champions of Wessex League
Last match – 1-0 over Bashley
Fun fact – They are the result of a merge between two clubs, originally founded in 1926.
Hamworthy have taken last season’s momentum and fully ran with it. The Dorset club have free scoring striker Sam Griffin in fine form and he’s supported by fellow forwards Ed Hodge and Cameron Munn. Keeper Kai Storr is relishing his recent run in the team and is well protected by skipper Anthony Rolls.
Farm have been struggling all season but still possess the ability to beat anyone on their day. Skipper Jake Gosling is having a good personal season and the return of George Fowler has been a big plus. Farm will also be hoping for the return of fullback Mason Winter.
Farm did pick up form before a bad post Christmas. They were unlucky in their 10 man defeat last time out but really need to find some points soon. Hamworthy are flying in 4th place and have only lost once since October. However, they have only played once since Boxing Day.
