Christmas is just 48 hours away, and despite being the hot topic around the globe, Bristol Manor Farm instead will look ahead to a Bank Holiday clash against local rivals Mangotsfield United on Monday 27th December. For those looking to make the trip to Cossham Street, here is all the match preview, ticket, and travel information for #Matchday 21.
In recent news, winger Kyle Tooze secured a move to Wiltshire-based club Melksham Town. We thank Kyle for his efforts, and wish him all the best for the future.
Looking ahead to Monday’s match, Manager Lee Lashenko commented: “After Saturday’s game against Cinderford, Evander Grubb will definitely be starting the match at Mangotsfield. He’s an exciting talent, and I can’t wait to see him in action again.
“We’ve moved Jake Gosling into a more central role and I do feel that we have a number of attacking options to really hurt teams. I feel the squad is in a good place at the minute, and we’re looking good heading into 2022.
Monday’s match at Cossham Street will be the third instalment of our fixtures against the Mangos this season. Our first being a 2-0 home victory back in August, and a 4-0 defeat in the GFA Senior Challenge Cup.
The Mangos currently sit in 18th position, but are 11 points clear of Barnstaple who remain rock bottom of the division. Following their 4-0 victory over the Portwaymen in November, Ray Johnston’s team managed to secure back-to-back Southern League victories against Bideford Town and Evesham United.
