Match reports 2020/21 Season


Oxford City  0-0  Brackley Town   26 Sept 2020

A tightly contested game ended goal-less before the managers, with next Saturday’s FA Cup ties in mind, agreed to give both teams penalty practice in an extended shoot-out that saw more shots miss and saved than hit the net although both goalkeepers converted neatly to round off a blustery afternoon at Marsh Lane.



Brackley Town 1-2  Hemel Hempstead   19 Sept 2020

Saints slip to unlikely defeat

Saints contrived to lose this pre-season game having dominated for long periods and created sufficient chances to have won by a margin.  But Hemel’s Jake Evans rifled in a long-range effort on the hour to equalise Lee Ndlovu’s opening goal before Harry Flowers received his marching orders and the visitors went ahead from the ensuing free-kick.


Brackley Town 2-0  AFC Rushden & Diamonds   12 Sept 2020

Stunning strikes seal home win

Two superb second half goals earned Saints a comfortable win in the third pre-season warm-up game at a warm and sunny St James Park.


Banbury United  0-1  Brackley Town   5 Sept 2020

Sun shines on return to action

This eagerly awaited first pre-season game at near neighbours Banbury United was about more than the action on the pitch.  While the 90 minutes delivered plenty to encourage both managers, a first opportunity since March to watch their team marked an important step towards the return of having spectators in grounds and the start of the season proper.
