Academy Match Reports

 

Saturday 1st February

Brackley Town u16's had a 200 mile round trip with just 12 players this weekend to play Priory Celtic Youth in Nottingham on a good 3G surface. The conditions weren't great what with the wind & the sun really low but this 3G surface could suit us. Our game plan was to get the ball down & play quick passing football & Brackley didn't disappoint especially 1st half. On paper Priory Celtic were favourites as they are much higher in the table, scored more goals & conceded less than we have so far this season.

Witney Viking's U 10s vs Brackley Town U10s

First time we have played this team, and in a cup game for the players it was a game they wanted to win to stay in top group.

 

Saturday 25th Jan 

Brackley Town u16's come thumping back down to earth suffering their heaviest defeat of the season away to Bromsgrove Sporting following their best run of form of W3 D2 L1 in the last 6 games. Brackley don't seem to travel well & we were very slow out of the blocks. Bromsgrove were much, much quicker in transition, faster, fitter & much slicker with their passing football on a very heavy pitch. Brackley couldnt cope against a much more phyiscal team in all areas & they seemed to have the desire to be first to every loose ball. Brackley didnt have an answer & soon went 2-0 down early on. It was evident our players were not coping with the phyiscal side of the game & dare I say it not working hard enough. We didnt compete & we got punished for it.

Brackley Town v DarlastonTown u16's  

1 point gained or 2 pts dropped is the question in a game of 2 very different halves. Both sides came into todays game boasting a good run of form with Brackley W3 D1 L1 & DarlastonTown W2 D2 L1 in the last 5 MJPL games.
