Bristol Manor Farm Football Club is overjoyed to announce the return of experienced striker and 2017 Toolstation League Premier Division champion, Dean Stamp.
The former Bristol Live Player of the Year winner, Stamp, scored 59 goals in 54 matches during his debut season with the Farm in 2015/16. In the following season, Stamp continued his lethal form in front of goal with 32 goals as the club were crowned champions of the Western League.
Dean has also featured for a number of clubs at this level and higher including Exeter City, Truro City, Taunton Town, Tiverton Town and most recently Willand Rovers.
Speaking to the club, Stamp commented: “Well Laz (Lee Lashenko) has been ringing me up constantly for about two years now,” Stamp laughed. “But in all seriousness, I have a great relationship with the manager here and he’s the reason why I have decided to come back.
“Every season something special happens at this club, whether it’s promotion or the cup runs – and this season we’re going to try and concentrate all of our efforts on pushing for promotion.
“Playing for Manor Farm were my best memories in Football, both personally and professionally. Winning promotion was a standout highlight, and of course, the cup runs in the FA Vase were brilliant.”
First-team Manager Lee Lashenko was quick to praise the return of Stamp and believes this signing best represents the clubs intentions of moving up the non-league pyramid.
“Form is temporary, class is permanent,” Lashenko said. “Dean is one of the best players that I’ve signed in my managerial career, and I’m thrilled that he’s agreed to jump on-board with us for next season. During his last spell he scored well over 50 goals in this division, and with the firepower that we already have at the club – we will definitely be challenging at the right end of the table.
Bristol Manor Farm Football Club would like to welcome Dean back to the Creek, and look forward to seeing him in action next season!
