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.
AN EXCELLENT TEAM PERFORMANCE SEALS VICTORY.
From the first whistle The Robins took control of the match. An early solo goal by Seb followed excellent wing play down the left and he put the Robins into an early lead. Tuffley did not get a look in and we were unlucky not to going in to the break with more that a 1-0 lead.
Tuffley did start the 2nd half brightly but once again the defensive unit more than coped with any potential dangers and Chris Grace was having a very quiet day in goal. It wasn’t long before we regained the momentum and a number of attacks were dealt with by the overworked Tuffley defence. The match was put out of reach when a perfectly placed free kick by TJ gave the keeper no chance as it went in off the right hand post.
The gloss was put on the performance with a late goal by TJ as he found himself clear and his deft chip over the onrushing keeper would be a worth contender for MOTD goal of the month.
The run of victories (14) continue and although the plaudits usually go the the free scoring forwards the foundation of our form throughout the season starts at the back and through midfield. Having such a solid base allows the forward line to play with out any pressure. COYR

Comfortable Victory for the Robins

A below par Bracknell Town secure a 3-2 victory against lowly Ascot in the local derby.
Ascot reduced to 10 men in the first 4 mins managed to match The Robins in the first half but despite this we managed to carve out the better chances and looked likely to take control of the match. However, it was Ascot that broke the deadlock on 43 mins when a hopeful long ball was collected well by Goodey who slotted home to give Ascot the lead. The lead only lasted 2 minutes when parity was restored following a Joe Grant mazy run in to the box who fired an unstoppable shot into the bottom right hand corner of the goal.
The second half saw the Robins more dominant but still misfiring in front of goal. It took an Ascot mistake with a comical own goal to give The Robins the lead. The lead was increased to 3-1 when Seb converted a penalty in 66th minute after a foul on Kensley.
Ascot were battling well but offering very little up front and the game looked well out of reach until a rare foray in to the box resulted in a corner and an excellent header gave Ascot hope in the 81st minute. A last minute scramble in the box could have been embarrassing but Johnny Gray cleared to save our blushes.
Ascot with 10 men put on a decent show but their poor run of results continue as they still struggle at the wrong end of the table and despite their best efforts they were not threatening enough in the last quarter of the pitch to get anything from the match. If we managed to score half of our chances the scoreline would have been very different.
