There’s only one Lewis Powell …
Published on: 02 May 2017
LEWIS Powell is a hero for Mangotsfield United after scoring more than 100 goals for the club but now he has a rival - Lewis Powell.
The Field signed Lewis G Powell on loan from Weston-super-Mare just before the transfer embargo and in the Easter Monday match at Bishop’s Cleeve Lewis G Powell scored with a lay-on from Lewis Powell.
“I doubt that has happened too many times in the Southern League!” said Martin Preedy, from the club, who added that the player confusion was eased because Lewis G is known as Lew Powell. The original Lewis Powell was the toast of the Mangos when he notched up his century in the match against Bridgwater Town and went on to get a hat-trick in the 6-0 win.
Mangotsfield ended their 65th season with a creditable 70+ points, compared with 48 last time. The end of season awards event is at the clubhouse on May 5.
Plans are already under way for the 2017-18 season, which starts on Saturday August 12. Keep an eye on the website for details of pre-season fixtures and other club news.
