Report: Bristol Manor Farm 0-11 Bristol City

City ran out 11-0 winners at Bristol Manor Farm's The Creek in the annual Community Match.

Five different players scored for City in the first period, with Freddie Hinds, Eros Pisano, Bobby Reid, Josh Brownhill and Joe Morrell all finding the net.

A completely different XI took to the field after the interval, but the goals continued to rain down on the home team.

Callum O’Dowda, Diego De Girolamo and Shawn McCoulsky all scored braces in the second half as this annual fixture entered double figures for the first time.

However, the real winner on the day was the community.

A sell-out crowd of 1,417 packed into The Creek, with fans able to mingle with their heroes, get photographs and gather autographs.

There was even an appearance from Famara Diedhiou, who is set to begin training with his new team-mates in the coming days.

CITY TAKE CHARGE

The first goal arrived on 11 minutes as Marlon Pack’s long, raking ball into the area evaded keeper Ashley Clarke, allowing Hinds to pounce and tap home into an empty net.

Two more goals followed quickly after as Pisano awkwardly converted a quickly-taken Morrell corner, before Jake Andrews wrestled free down the left flank and crossed for Reid to tap home from two yards out.

With 22 minutes on the clock, Brownhill added a fourth and a cricket score already looked on the cards. Reid slipped a neat pass into the path of Brownhill’s run and the midfielder made no mistake with his finish.

But City only added one more before the break, Morrell drilling a low shot inside the far post from the edge of the box.

SECOND-HALF GOAL GLUT

O’Dowda smashed in number six soon after the interval having been picked out by De Girolamo’s cross to the back post.

De Girolamo then grabbed a brace himself. The first saw him pick up the ball amongst a host of Manor Farm players before sliding it past the keeper, and his second came from close range after a neat pass from McCoulsky.

McCoulsky, who surpassed 30 goals last season, added number nine on 81 minutes, chasing Korey Smith’s pass into the area and lifting it over the keeper

O’Dowda took the scoreline into double figures after a fine jinking run, before another from McCoulsky at the death.

Ultimately though, the £10,000-plus raised - which will be used for valuable work by the Community Trust and to improve the facilities for hosts Manor Farm - was the biggest success story from a sunny afternoon on the Portway.

Bristol City: Fielding (Lucic 46), Pisano (Vyner 46), Flint (Hegeler 46), Moore (Pierre 46), Bryan (Kelly 46), Brownhill (O’Dowda 46), Morrell (K.Smith 46), Pack (Golbourne 46), Andrews (Paterson 46), Reid (De Girolamo 46), Hinds (McCoulsky 46).
