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.

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.
