All about ‘Farnborough FC’

November Player of the Month sponsored by Paul's Landscapes

We are pleased to announce that the Bracknell Town FC player of the month for November sponsored by Paul’s Landscapes is… Harry Brown.

Harry Brown player of the month for November

The former Farnborough youngster joined the club in October and has been ever present since.

The full-back has played predominantly on the left but displayed his ability at centre-back during the 3-0 win over AFC Hinksey on Saturday, helping his side record a clean sheet in the process.

Congratulations on the award Harry.

Former Farnborough ace Lee Riddell signs for Bracknell

Midfielder LEE RIDDELL is the latest player to join the Larges Lane revolution.

The versatile player who can also play in defence or attack has been without a club since last season and the Hellenic League have confirmed he is available for the FA Cup tie with Bishop’s Cleeve tomorrow alongside fellow new boy Chris Adams.

An experienced campaigner in the Southern League, Riddell featured against the Robins on numerous occasions at that level for clubs including Farnborough, Fleet Town and Slough Town.

We would like to welcome Lee to the club.

Goalkeeper Chris Adams signs on the dotted line for Bracknell

CHRIS ADAMS is back at Larges Lane after re-signing for the club last night.

Adams was the Robins number one last season and was almost ever present despite a broken finger and the Robins eventual relegation.

Chris Adams

Chris led the Robins on the pitch as captain for much of last and during the summer decided to test himself at a higher level, eventually signing for Farnborough FC followed by a short spell at neighbours Binfield.

The Hellenic League have confirmed that Adams has signed in time to be in contention for tomorrow’s FA Cup tie at Bishop’s Cleeve along with fellow new boy Lee Riddell.

Bracknell Town Youth – Farnborough FC Youth

Youth FA Cup Third Qualifying Round

With the added incentive to play away at Torquay United in the next round the Robins set their sights on an autumn weekend on the English Riviera.

The visitors started the more lively of the two sides but the first chance felll to Bracknell’s Louis Wilson who was set up from Tom Barratt to see a lovely lob from 25 yards saved at full stretch by the impressive Farborough keeper.

Farnborough pushed forward but long range efforts high and wide of the target left

Connor Banks had the next effort on the visitors goal but again the shots were not making the keepers work until a quick thinking Tom Barratt free kick from 40 yards brought a fine tip over the bar save from Farnborough’s number 1.

Several more efforts on goal one from Craig Lock right sided free kick nearly opened the door for the Robins but on this occasion the defenders swept away the threat on goal.

Farborough surged forward in waves in the final ten minutes of the half making the well organised back four led by captain Lewis Leonetti worked hard to protect their goal

The second period started like the first with Farnborough moving the ball quickly but time and time again Bracknell frustrated the travelling side with strong midfield tackling.

Louis Wilson and Jamie made way for fresh legs and what a difference this made with new support for the hard working striker Connor Banks.

It was super sub Kevin Asare Addai that gave the ‘ Robins’ lead with a 64 minute goal from 8 yards out.

As Farnborough tried hard to get back into the tie their frustration grew and on 87 minutes the final nail was knocked into the coffin with Kevin slotting home from the right side to secure a dream game away to football league side Torquay Utd.

Credit goes out to both Steve Jenner and his staff and of course all the squad involved in last nights game.

Next week sees another local tie against Binfield in the Allied Counties South Division league game.
