York City 1-0 Brackley Town 10/8/19
Solitary goal condemns Saints to second defeat
Andy Bond’s 55th minute long range effort that crept in off the post was the defining moment of an intensely competitive but ultimately fruitless game for Brackley at York’s Bootham Crescent. The win sent City top of the embryonic National League North table leaving Saints with one win from the opening three fixtures of the new season.
The home side enjoyed the better of things but Saints remained steadfast in their task and almost grabbed an added time equaliser at the end of the game as Glenn Walker was foiled in a goalmouth scramble.
