Our 125th Anniversary Celebration Dinner takes place on the evening of October 14th at the Bristol Marriot City Centre Hotel, in what will no doubt be a wonderful occasion.
We wish all clubs every success in each of the competitions they compete in this season.
In the annual Toolstation Charity Cup, Street lost out to AFC Mansfield of the Northern Counties East League in a pulsating encounter at the home of Cribbs. The Bulls, who were formed in 2012, took the lead just before the half-hour mark thanks to an excellent finish from Cameron Dear. Street then battled back, scoring twice in the minutes leading up to half-time, to take a 2-1 lead with them to the break. Dale Hunt scored the equaliser for Richard Fey’s men following excellent work down the right from Josh Wadham, with the same man then assisting from the opposite flank for David O’Hare to put Street ahead in added time at the end of the first half. Unfortunately for the Cobblers, they were unable to hold on during the second half with Lynton Karkach and Nick Guest firing Mansfield to a 3-2 victory. Compliments must be paid to all who had a part to play in the fixture, with all proceeds going to the RNLI Flood Rescue Team and The Countess of Brecknock Hospice charities.
