Southern League Division One South
Saturday 30th March 2019
3:00pm kick off
Cossham Street, Mangotsfield

Bideford make the trip up the M5 tomorrow to take on a Mangotsfield United side looking to pull themselves away from the relegation zone at the foot of Division One South. The Mangos are six points above 19th place Barnstaple Town with six games remaining. After a string of defeats, Mangotsfield have picked up a hugely important four points in their last two games with a win over Larkhall and a draw last week at Highworth. Bideford’s pursuit of a play-off place looks to be over after back-to-back defeats against Moneyfields and Cinderford leaving The Robins eleven points behind 5th place Winchester City. However, Bideford will be looking to end the season on a high and attempting to finish as high as possible in the Division.

A Brief History of Mangotsfield United FC
Mangotsfield United were formed in 1951 but the original club Mangotsfield FC were established back in 1892 and were founder members of the Bristol & District League. Mangotsfield FC folded after the 1897/98 season and despite numerous attempts to reform the club it wasn't until 1951 that Mangotsfield United joined Bristol & District League Division Seven. It took a couple of decades for the club to work their way up through the divisions and be accepted into the Western League in 1972. The Field were relegated to Western League Division One in 1982 but finished runners-up in 1982/83 to bounce straight back to the Premier Division. In 1990/91 Mangotsfield were crowned Western League champions but were denied promotion to the Southern League as their ground wasn't up to the required standard. In 1995/96 Mangotsfield reached the semi final of the FA Vase but lost out to Clitheroe over two legs. 1999/00 saw Mangotsfield finish as runners up in the Western Premier and this time they were accepted into the Southern League Western Division. They would win the Southern League Western title in 2004/05 and be promoted to the Southern League Premier Division where they finished a club high of 9th in 2006/07 before being relegated to Division One South & West in 2008/09. In 2010/11 Mangotsfield finished 3rd in Division One but lost their play-off semi final to Frome Town. The next five seasons in Division One S&W saw them finish 14th, 13th, 11th, 10th and 14th. In 2016/17 Mangotsfield finished in 8th position and in 2017/18 they dropped to 16th place.
