AFC Mangotsfield defeat local rivals

AFC Mangotsfield finished 2018 in fine style by beating local rivals Mangotsfield Sports 2-1 at Blackhorse Road playing field.

In a game which was mainly dominated by AFC, they found themselves trailing 0-1 at half time, a combination of missed chances and a great finish by Samuels of Sports made all the difference. However in the second half, AFC gradually took control and fine finishes from Bamford and Hocking earned the three points and bragging rights for The Colliers.

At the time Downend Voice went to print, the New Year has seen just one game so far and another win away to Ashton, goals from Hamilton-Dunn 2 and Stalley gave the Colliers a 3-1 victory which has seen AFC climb to fifth position and in touch with the leading pack

In fact all five AFC sides are doing quite well, in their respective leagues.
