Lewis eyes ton-up for Mangotsfield
Published on: 24 Mar 2017
Mangotsfield United's Lewis Powell is on course for his hundredth goal for the club.
Powell was on 99 as Downend Voice went to print and he was hoping to notch up the ton in the home game against Bridgwater on March 25. He will be only the third player in the club's 65-year history to achieve this feat.
The Field still have an outside chance of making the promotion play-offs. Form has been patchy since the start of February - P9 W3 D4 L2 - but the final run-in includes games against rivals Salisbury and Taunton and Evesham. The latter two are both away and the side have performed well on opposition turf this season so there's still hope.
Players Ryan Bath, Kerry Morgan and Matt Coupe have left the club. George Lloyd is back playing again after he incurred a broken ankle in pre-season and Kyle Knott has also recovered from his long-term injury.
April home matches are: Salisbury on Saturday April 15 and Didcot Town on Saturday April 22. The Salisbury match is also the former players' day, where ex-Mangos can come along and watch the match for free. After the game, the club are also holding another of their very successful Pig Race events and everyone is welcome to watch.
"Don’t worry, the pigs are pink, furry and of the wind-up variety!" said commercial director Martin Preedy.
