It's that time again- a weekend in Bristol with the mythical creature who goes by the name of Partizan Bristle, or Tom to any regular being. Following last year's ventures to The Lawns, West Clewes and Norton Lane on a Western League extravaganza in May 2016, I was back for another triple-threat and it all kicked-off with the Western Premier League Champions, Bristol Manor Farm.
|In the meantime, here I am at The Creek|
|Tony getting some pre-match patrolling in- standard|
|Half time, 2-0|
|I also discovered the real reason that Tom likes it here so much|
|And they weren't done yet|
Joking aside, the game and the season was coming to an end and despite making a bold effort to add more goals, Manor Farm would have to satisfy for a very comfortable and well deserved 5-0 triumph in-front of a bumper crowd of appreciative fans. The whistle soon blew to end the match and we headed over to see the trophy presentation. Having been lucky enough to see more than one trophy lifting ceremony this season already, in the form of Dundalk's Irish Premier League win, Catholic United's victory in Thurrock and even Burton's pre-season lift of the Bass Charity Vase, I was glad to add the Western League Premier trophy to my collection and this joy was solidified when I actually had a chance to nip on to the pitch and hold it for myself.
