“My aim is to win the League and get promoted,” Owen Howe.

Bristol Manor Farm Football Club is thrilled to announce that striker Owen Howe will be rejoining the club for the 2021/22 season.

The experienced frontman is the first signing made by First-team Manager Lee Lashenko as the club begin their preparation ahead of an exciting season in the Southern League Division One South. Howe originally played for the club during the 2018/19 season, where he scored 29 goals across all competitions. Since that impact season at The Creek, Howe has gone on to play for Weston-super-Mare FC, Salisbury FC, and Taunton Town FC. 

With the club looking to make a push for promotion next season, Howe believes that he can make another impact at The Creek second time round:

“I have always had a great relationship with Laz (Lee Lashenko),” Howe began.

“I think overall, I did quite well well in my last spell at the club. However, I think that my disciplinary record let myself and a few people at the club down. We’ve missed the last two seasons due to COVID, so I think now is the best time to come back to the club and do my bit for Laz and the team.

“I think the club can expect to see a more experienced, and better Owen. My discipline has improved massively, and I want to the club to see that fire in my belly as a player who wants to succeed and score goals.

“My aim is to win the league and get promoted. That is the reason why I’m coming back and what  I want to achieve at Bristol Manor Farm Football Club,” Howe said.

Not only will Howe be linking up with his former manager, but also a number of his former teammates from his first spell at Manor Farm:

“I’m really excited to be joining the group of lads again. I’ve kept in contact with a number of the lads since I played here, so I’m looking forward to seeing some familiar faces. 

“As for Lee, he’s a great guy and a great manager. We’ve got a strong relationship, and even when I was playing for other clubs we kept in contact to see how each other was doing. 

“I’m delighted to be back, and hopefully this will be a really exciting time for the club,” Said Howe.

Farmy Army supporters will remember Howe from his last spell at the club, where he contributed a number of goals alongside former players such as Dean Stamp and Troy Simpson. One of those Saturday afternoons included a trip to Slough Town FC in the F.A. Cup where he scored twice to force the Rebels to a replay. With all eyes on Howe’s return, the prolific frontman is hoping to write more history in the club’s folklore second time round:

“I can’t wait for those afternoons as the underdogs,” Howe said.

“We had some great times in the league, especially in the F.A. Cup, and I’m really hoping that we can go to teams and cause more upsets!” Howe expressed.

Everyone connected to Bristol Manor Farm FC would like to welcome Owen back to the club, and look forward to seeing him back in a Manor Farm shirt in the coming weeks.
