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 have created a new website.
Development Update (Early Oct)- Currently we are working on the surrounding paths and when these are in place we will lay the tarmac ready for the artificial grass. We have just placed an order for the 3G surface which is due for delivery w/c 24th October.
THE 9 MEN OF BRACKNELL BOW OUT OF FA VASE
After a perfect start to the match we took an early lead in the 8th minute lead through TJ only to see Croydon equalise 5 minutes later. With the score finely balanced 1 – 1 at half time the 2nd half promised to be a classic cup encounter.
We were very much up against it early in the 2nd half when Carl Davies received a straight red, he was deemed to be the last man and deny a goal scoring opportunity. The opinion of the travelling fans suggested otherwise! Croydon took full advantage of their good fortune and scored twice to take a 3 -1 lead. Any hopes of a Bracknell fight back were quashed when Chris Grace received a straight red reducing us to 9 men. Croydon were also awarded 2 penalties one of which was saved by Callum but he could do nothing about the second and Croydon put the tie firmly out of reach.
The lads still managed to play some very good football but when things go against you they way they did you know it was not going to be your day. Congratulations to Croydon in the next round who were clinical but also had the good grace to acknowledge they were on the right end of some strange decisions.
Not much to say about this result other than the scoreline. It was one of those days when the chances that were created were converted, with the help of a couple of unfortunate own goals. Brackley Town, a young side, at times in the match played some impressive free flowing football but failed to carve out any real opportunities. When you are up against a team full of confidence and on a impressive run of form it was unfortunate for Brackley who on the night were on the receiving end.
A fair reflection at half time being 2 goals to the good, but some excellent finishing and brilliant wide play in the 2nd half from Joe & Seb caused havoc in the Brackley defence creating a number of excellent opportunities that did not go to waste.
Scorers: TJ Bohane 3, Senussi 2, Grant 1, Whitty 1, OG 2
TJ AT THE DOUBLE ON HIS RETURN TO WOOTTON
A near perfect performance as Bracknell run riot at Wootton Bassett. Goals from McClurg, Short, Cornell & Davies and a double from TJ Bohane on a return to his former club, add to this a second successive clean sheet rounds off an excellent afternoons work for “The Robins”
Until our redevelopment is complete (Early Nov 2016) we will be playing some of our early home matches at Sandhurst Town FC who have kindly allowed us to use their facilities.
