It will be just more than two weeks until Bristol Manor Farm begin their Pre-Season campaign for 2023/24, with the first game taking place on Saturday 1 July as Lee Lashenko’s new-look team travel to Roman Glass. Speaking to the club, Lashenko provided an update on how the Portwaymen are ‘constantly improving’ ahead of another season at Step 4.

“The off-season has been a very positive period for Bristol Manor Farm Football Club,” Lashenko began. “From the management team, playing staff, and the commercial activity, now is a brilliant time to be associated with our proud football club.“Over the past two months, we have introduced key signings, Jamie Adams, Jamie Bird, Seth Locke, and Frankie Phillips to our returning core of First-Team players. Myself and Grantley will also be joined by Liam (Harding), who will be given lots of opportunities and responsibilities next season.“Away from the football activity, our commercial team has been hard at work getting some really exciting plans in place for next season, and it’s great to be working with returning and new businesses for the 2023/24 season,” Lashenko expressed.

“I want my younger players to know that this season there is an expectation of shared responsibility. Nobody will be singled out, and collectively, I am looking at them to continue their progression and make an impact on the squad together.”Manager Lashenko also admitted that the club isn’t finished with its recruitment process, and the Farmy Army can look forward to three signings that will be announced in due course – two new additions and one returning player.“We’ve been in advance talks with a few players in recent weeks, who are all very interested in joining Bristol Manor Farm Football Club. We are proud of our commitment to promoting the youngsters through to the First-Team, and the new players will only add further strength and healthy competition for places. Overall, I’m really pleased with how the football club is progressing ahead of the season.”
