Just two matches remain for Bristol Manor Farm in the Southern League, as Lee Lashenko’s Farmers look to secure a place in the play-offs and set a new record for the club’s highest league finish. Join us at The Creek for what should be a fantastic afternoon of non-league football against Larkhall Athletic.
Last Saturday’s draw away to Frome Town ensured the Farm stay above Winchester and AFC Totton in fourth position – but with Stags being only three points behind having played a game less, Lashenko knows his side need to be on top of their game against a strong Larkhall side.
“The Creek is an exciting place to be at the minute, and we’re looking forward to playing in front of our home supporters in a massive game,” Lashenko began.
“Larkhall have played 10 years at Southern League level compared to our five – which shows their quality as a football club. We know how hard this competition is, so this week is all about maintaining our form and having the right mindset going into the match.
“As a football club we hope to see as many of you back at The Creek once again,” Lashenko expressed.
The Larks will be hoping to end their season with a positive string of results, especially after the disappointing 1-0 home loss to Bideford AFC at Plain Ham last Saturday.
Overall it’s been a strong season for the visitors, which includes their great run in the FA Trophy where they reached the fourth round and met Vanarama National Premier side Stockport County.
However, the Larks’ current form doesn’t read well with the club winless in their previous nine matches and only winning twice since that match against Stockport in January.
The two sides previously met in August, where the Farm were pegged back after leading twice through Ben Bament and Owen Howe. Larkhall’s Jack Camm was given his marching orders, but Sam Crumb’s towering header meant the spoils were shared.

Larkhall Athletic Football Club dates from 1914. In 1951 the club regained access to its home at Plain Ham after it had been turned over to allotments during WWII. Since then, it has gone from strength to strength, achieving the status in 2004 as a Premier Club and in 2008 as an FA Charter Standard Community Club, the first club to achieve this recognition in Bath. This status was renewed in 2011 and 2014.
In 2015-16 the first team finished the season in the top half of the Southern League Division 1 South and West table, had another fine FA Cup run including taking Conference side Havant and Waterlooville to a replay, and reached the final of the Somerset FA Premier Cup for the first time in club history. Elsewhere, the Reserves just missed out on promotion to the Premier Division of the Somerset County Football League and the Ladies team capped a successful league season by retaining the Somerset FA Senior Cup for a second consecutive year.
