Academy Match Reports


Under 12s - 4th Jan 2020

Brackley Town vs Banbury Town 

After the Christmas break Brackley started the game really strongly and raced into a 2.0 lead. Banbury recovered well and started to have more possession and forced the Brackley keeper into 2 great saves. Brackley made a couple of changes towards the end of the half and with some nice football scored 3 more goals before half time.


Saturday 11th Jan 2020  v  Football First Academy 

Challenging day from the start. 

Due to road works, and a bare 11.  

Still the lads are a plucky bunch and applied themselves as best as they could, despite this.

League Cup 

Shrewsbury DC v Brackley Town u16  

Brackley Town go through to the QF of the cup after a great game of football played by both sides. The tie ended 0-0 at FT with Brackley coming out on top winning 3-1 on penalties in the end. Both sides demonstrated some good football, however we were cancelling each other out with a very similar style of play. Both teams kept their shape & switched play to good effect but neither side could break the deadlock.


After the festive break both our under 8s sides acquitted themselves really well on Saturday, you wouldn’t have known the boys hadn’t played a competitive game for three weeks. The Lions playing away at Witney Vikings came out with all guns blazing, great performances all round and plenty of goals.
