After an extended break from action, Bristol Manor Farm AFC will host Southern League newcomers Plymouth Parkway at The Creek for matchday 10 of the season.
The Farm will be boosted by the return of club and division-leading goalscorer, Owen Howe, following his absence last time out against Evesham United. Remarkably, Howe has already reached double figures for the season, and will be back in contention to start amongst the Farm players to face Plymouth tomorrow night. Aside from the action, we would like to congratulate Farm forward Kyle Tooze and his partner Gemma on the birth of their daughter, Aurora Topaz Tooze!
Tuesday’s opponents, Plymouth Parkway, have made a blistering start to life in the Southern League, sitting in fourth place – just one point ahead of Lee Lashenko’s men – with four wins, one draw, and only the single loss. Lee Hobbs’ side isn’t afraid of scoring either, they’ve already dispatched Mangotsfield United 6-0 and Paulton Rovers 5-1.
For Manor Farm, a victory on Tuesday night would see the club leapfrog Plymouth Parkway and move back into the play-offs. Currently, Lashenko’s side is seventh in the table with 12 points.

Plymouth Parkway Football Club is a football club based in Plymouth, Devon, England.
The club was originally formed by Stuart Cadmore in 1988 when a group of players left the youth team Plymouth Kolts and joined the Plymouth & District League in Division 4. In that same year, the club secured sponsorship from Exeter Airport, and as part of that deal, they changed their name to Ex-Air Flyers.
They were the first club in Plymouth to be sponsored from outside the city limits. The club colours of yellow and blue are from the colours of the airport logo and remain the same today.
In the 2006–07 season the club entered the FA Vase for the first time, making it to the second qualifying round in their first attempt.
A season later the club became founding members of the South West Peninsula League when the South Western Football League and the Devon County Football League merged.
In the summer of 2016, Parkway merged with Plymouth and West Devon Football League club Bar Sol Ona, whose team became the Parkway Reserves in the East Cornwall League. It is here where Parkway gets the design for their FC Barcelona-esque away kit from.
