Off the back of their excellent bank holiday schedule, another thrilling encounter awaits as Bristol Manor Farm take on league leaders AFC Totton at The Creek on Saturday 4th September for a 3pm kick-off.
The Farm came slightly unstuck against Larkhall, when they were twice pegged back, but rounded off the August bank holiday period with four points when they defeated rivals Mangotsfield United 2-0 courtesy of goals from Ben Bament and Owen Howe. Their opponents, AFC Totton, however will be looking to make it five wins in a row when they travel west on Saturday afternoon. The Stags got off to a flying start when they beat league newcomers Plymouth Parkway 1-0 at The Testwood Stadium, and have since beaten Melksham Town, Highworth Town, and Lymington Town.
