Bracknell Town Football Club founded in 1896 and now in 2016 is going through the biggest change in our clubs history. Larges Lane home of BTFC since the 1930’s is undergoing 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 with a new logo and we are also creating a new website.
Development Update (Early Sept 2016) – The site has now been levelled and the 2m slope has been removed, the ground has been injected with concrete and we are currently taking delivery of approx 4000 tonnes of stone to form the base layer. We have now reached an exciting stage of the development where the main pitch construction starts.
Moving this game to a Friday night paid dividends as 350 plus local fans arrived at Stubbs Lane to watch this eagerly awaited local derby. Bracknell started on the front foot and created a number of chances that unfortunately went begging, Binfield struggled to get a grip on the game as we quickly closed down any threat. However it was Binfield that took the lead after 25 minutes when Jack Broome found himself in space and given too much time allowing him to strike a powerful, swerving shot in to the top corner, wrong footing Chris Grace.
The second half was similar to the first as Bracknell still had control of the match but were unable to find the equaliser. Eventually we had the ball in the back of the net as Adam Cornell evaded a foul to round the keeper and slot home. But unfortunately the goal was ruled out by the eagle eyed linesman who spotted that Adam had accidentally controlled the ball with his hand. This cancelled out any advantage gained and the ref correctly went to the original foul and awarded a penalty. TJ stepped up but he dragged the spot kick wide of the post.
Undeterred, Bracknell were still on the front foot with Kingsley causing havoc in the Binfield defence in both creating opportunities and also seeing a well struck shot well saved. It was another forage down the wing by Kingsley and his deflected cross found sub Joe Grant at the far post and he headed the deserved equaliser in the 75th minute. Now in full flow and a minute later Bracknell took the lead as George Short powered through the Binfield defence a slotted past the keeper. This proved to be the winner as Bracknell comfortably closed the game out.
Formed in 2010, the Chelsea Foundation brings together the Football in the Community and the Education department along with the club’s other charitable and community activities, including environment and anti-discrimination projects.
