Bristol Manor Farm battled hard to keep hold of their slender first half lead, claiming all 3 points from an entertaining game at The Creek.

The home side had the better of the opening half-hour but were repeatedly thwarted by an excellent goalkeeping display by North Leigh’s Manny Agboola, who foiled Kye Holly in the 10th minute and pulled off a fine stop from a Jamie Turner effort five minutes later.

The visitors were unlucky not to take the lead after 35 minutes when striker George Seacole hit a fierce drive which shaved the outside of Ashley Clarke’s near post.

Shortly afterwards Manor Farm scored in the 37th minute when midfielder Kye Holly hit a sweet drive into the top corner from 25 yards out which would prove to be the winning goal.

Both sides had chances in a closely contested second half but Agboola for North Leigh and a well-organised Manor Farm defence ensured that there was no scoring addition to Holly’s deadly strike.
