Bristol Manor Farm Boss Handed A 12-Match Ban
Following an altercation with a referee after his club’s defeat at the hands of Paulton Rovers, Bristol Manor Farm manager Lee Lashenko has been handed a 12-match ban by the Football Association. Video evidence showed Lashenko confronting and shouting at the referee following their FA Trophy match against the Rovers on the 9th of October. In the video, Lashenko was seen abusing the referee and being held back by players. As a result, Lashenko has been fined £250 in addition to an on-ground ban for eight matches and a four-match touchline ban. Bristol Manor Farm also had put out a statement last October offering their "sincerest apologies" for the distress caused by the incident.
