    HALLEN FC

    We were shocked to hear the news that Almondsbury Parish Council have given Hallen notice to quit their facility at Moorhouse Lane.

    This is not only used by their first team but also by the many junior teams which involve the kids of the surrounding community. We sincerely hope that our local rivals find a resolution to this situation and that they can continue at their home.

    Shirehampton 0 - 2 Manor Farm

    Sitting two divisions above their opponents, Manor Farm proved too strong for Shirehampton. Played on the 3G pitch at the GFA Headquarters at Almonsbury, the surface suited the playing style of Manor Farm. As the sun began to dip below the horizon the game got underway with Manor Farm making Shirehampton work from the off by keeping the ball and playing it around the middle of the of the park. The first clear cut chance fell to Shirehampton on the half hour mark when from a free kick keeper Ashley Clark punched the ball clear only to see it knocked back towards goal from the edge of the box. Pete Sheppard reacted and headed it clear off the line. Five minutes later and Manor Farm took the lead. A long high ball from the right and Liam Farmer rose in the box to head home. It was now going to be an uphill task for their lower placed opponents as it looked from the restart that Manor Farm would run rampant. But by half time the score remained 1-0 to Manor Farm. The start of the second half saw the introduction of sub Jordan Metters and Manor Farm pressed Shirehampton hard. But Shirehampton weathered this early second half storm and began to make inroads into the Manor Farm defence. On 65 minutes one of their attacks again broke down and Manor Farm raced forward. The one touch passing out of defence soon found them on the edge of the Shirehampton box. Metters tried to tee the ball up for a shot in the D but chose the option to pass to his left to Jack Durrant who fired it past the diving Mark Winkler to double Manor Farm’s lead. Shirehampton never gave up and worked hard against an impressive Manor Farm. With three minutes of added time played the referee brought the game to an end and Manor Farm walked away with the silverware.

    Iain McLeod Anderson
    We were sorry to hear that former Manor Farm player Iain Anderson has passed away. Iain joined the club in 1973 and was a regular right back for the reserve team. He was enthusiastic and played with passion befitting a true Scot.

    In 1975/76 Iain was appointed as Club Secretary and it wasn't long before his administration skills came to the fore. Within a few years he took on the additional task of Assistant Manager to Mike Fisher. Iain combined this dual role with great skill and loyalty and this period saw great success with Manor Farm winning the Western League Division One and promotion.

    Iain and his wife Glenys, who sadly passed away in August 2014, were both stalwarts of the club with Glenys serving on the committee. Iain left Manor Farm and joined Keynsham Town and continued to enhance his reputation there.

    When Iain and Glenys retired they moved back to Kircaldy in Scotland. He was a life long supporter of East Fife FC

    Iain was a man of great integrity and a true friend of Bristol Manor Farm. The world has been a better place for his presence in it. Iain passed away on 7th April 2015 after a brave battle with motor neurone disease. Our thoughts at this time are with his family and friends.

    Ben Hiscox Benefit Match

    Can we please put on record the brilliant support we received from Bristol Manor Farm AFC who allowed us to host the Benefit Game for Ben Hiscox on Bank Holiday Monday.

    We raised £5,446 on the day from the game between Manor Farm and Stoke Gifford AFC which included gate donation, raffle, sports auction and also £950 from Bristol Manor Farm which included a share of the profit from the bar and food on the day - a great gesture!

    Particular thanks should go to Manor Farm Chairman, Geoff Sellek and all his committee whom for nothing was too much trouble. All the money raised will be going directly to Bens partner Zoe and his Step Daughter.

    Thank you all so very much from John Gibbs on behalf of the Family.
