Bristol Manor Farm can confirm the signing of centre-back Steve Kingdon from Tiverton Town. With this signing, Steve Kingdon becomes the second newest signing for us on-top of Striker Lewis Powell joining from Weston-Super-Mare.
Looking to further strengthen our squad, manager Lee Lashenko has swooped in to sign Steve Kingdon, former Taunton Town and Tiverton Town Captain. With lots of big teams looking to sign Steve, we are very glad he has decided to commit to Bristol Manor Farm for the 2017/18 season as we head in to our first season of the Southern League. This signing, on top of players like Ashley Clarke, Lloyd Mills, and Martin Stowell returning to The Creek, gives Manor Farm an excellent and strong defensive line to build on.
“Steves professionalism and experience was a big factor in us going for him. The rest of the team will benefit greatly from having him in the defensive line so we’re glad we could get him.”Lee Lashenko
Before captaining Tiverton and Taunton, Steve Kingdon came from Bristol Rovers youth ranks before being promoted to the senior team and then joining Clevedon Town for three seasons. He helped Taunton Town achieve their highest ever Southern League finish as captain and, last season, helped Tiverton Town win the play-offs against competition such as former team Taunton Town and Salisbury to achieve promotion to the Southern League Premier Divison.
So lets all give a big welcome from the Farmy Army to Steve Kingdon as we look forward to seeing him in red next season for the Farm!
