It was a great evening for Junior Soper’s Bristol Manor Farm U18 side who defeated Chipping Sodbury U18’s 9-0 at Lockleaze.
The match, however, came close to being cancelled due to a change of equipment and facilities – meaning that Chipping Sodbury kindly offered to host the fixture at a different location from The Creek.
Speaking to the club, Soper commented: “As you can imagine, it was an absolute nightmare.
“The game was actually called off 45 minutes before kick off, which caused everyone absolute mayhem. Credit to Chipping Sodbury though, as they showed their class in being able to host last night’s friendly,” Soper said.
Despite the unusual circumstances that took place before kick-off, it was an emphatic victory for Soper’s side who have now won their opening two pre-season matches – including victory over Keynsham Town U18’s last week. The U18’s are still awaiting confirmation for their next fixture, but we will announce full details in due course.
