As we prepare for the Steve Hillier Memorial Cup that kicks off tomorrow afternoon, Bristol Manor Farm Football Club would like to update its supporters with the new changes that have been made to the competition.
Firstly, we would like to thank the Harrington Family for being the official sponsors of the Steve Hillier Memorial Cup. We look forward to welcoming you all to the Bristol Manor Farm Social Club for your outside table booking on Saturday!
Unfortunately, due to the current government and Southern League guidelines supporters will NOT be able to watch any of the tournament’s matches from the stands. However, the Bristol Manor Farm Social Club will be taking bookings for their new marquee from 12pm – where supporters will be able to enjoy food & drink outside the clubhouse. We will also be showing Live Premier League action, with Newcastle taking on West Ham.
Football Association Recommendation: Kick Off time, Saturday 17 April
In recent news, The Duke of Edinburgh sadly passed away at the age of 99 on Friday, 9 April and his funeral will be held at St George’s Chapel, Windsor, at 15:00 BST on Saturday, 17 April. As a mark of respect, The FA have recommended that no games should be played between 14:45 and 16:15.
This now means that the match between Hallen & Bishops Sutton will now take place at 16:15 on Saturday, 17 April.
Steve Hillier Memorial Cup FINAL
After consideration from the club’s directors and management team, Bristol Manor Farm have decided to move the date of the Steve Hillier Memorial Cup from Sunday, 25 April to Saturday, 24 April.
This change has meant that the kick-off for the 3rd vs 4th play-off final will be played at 12:00, and the final of the tournament to be played at 16:00.
We are currently working on providing a free livestream of the final on the club’s official YouTube channel. A statement regarding this, and a donations link, will be posted on the club’s website & social media channels once we have confirmation.
