Bracknell Town Football Club founded in 1896 and now in 2016/17 we have began a new era with the biggest change in our clubs history. Larges Lane home of BTFC since the 1930’s has seen a major upgrade with the installation of the latest state-of-the-art 3g pitch, new clubhouse and changing facilities. In keeping with this total modernisation we have rebranded our clubs logo.
We have come a long way since the project started and all the efforts have been worthwhile. The 3G pitch is now fully approved and our teams from the Mens 1st Team, Ladies though to our youth teams have all had the opportunity to enjoy their new facility.
Work is still on going to complete the club house and we are moving rapidly in to Phase 2 of the development. If you have not had the chance to see our progress in person, please pop down to The Lane. Keep an eye out for the fixtures.
FOUR GOALS FROM SEB IN EMPHATIC VICTORY
The large crowd at the The Lane were treated to a goal fest as The Robins ran out 7-2 winners in a dominant display.
On the front foot from the off, it did not take too long to assume control of the match as The Robins raced to a 3 – 0 lead with Seb netting twice and a customary goal from TJ. Brimscombe did reduce the deficit but Seb completed his 1st half hat trick to put us 4-1 up at the break.
It was much the same in the 2nd half as The Robins continued to play on the front foot with Seb scoring his fourth. Brimscombe added their 2nd before TJ and veteran Ian Davies came off the bench to score the 8th & 9th goal of the day to conclude proceedings.
Thatcham’s victory over Flackwell effectively ended their their title hopes but with Thame victorious and now with only 5 games left we maintain our 1 point lead at the top as the race for the title between the two teams looks like going down to the wire.
Another vital victory against Ardley United in the title race. After going a goal behind the Robins drew level with a goal from Gavin Smith and TJ put us in front with a goal from close range.
BACK ON TRACK
After last weeks cup defeat the Robins returned to winning ways in an entertaining 5-3 victory in the Bluefin Sport Challenge Cup. Goals from TJ (2), Seb (2) and Adam Cornell was was enough to secure the victory and ease their way in to the quarter finals.
ROBINS BOW OUT OF FLOODLIT CUP
The Robins suffered their 1st defeat since November as Ardley progress to the next round of the Floodlit Cup with a well deserved victory. A goal from Joe Grant was our only real highlight.
A Crowd of 248 witness The Robins extend their lead to 4 points
With the majority of Hellenic League matches cancelled due to frozen pitches, the new 3G surface at Larges Lane really came in to it own as a very large crowd at the Lane witnessed The Robins secure another 3-0 victory.
This result extended not only our impressive run of league form with our 11th successive victory but more importantly our lead at the top of the table to four points.
Goals: Bowerman, Short & TJ
