Brackley Town  0-1  Chester   FAT Q3   23 Nov 2019

Saints exit Trophy at first hurdle

A first half stalemate matched the dreary Northamptonshire weather as the teams cancelled each other out.  But the second half was altogether brighter as Brackley enjoyed the better of possession and chances, yet it was Chester who made the break-through that proved decisive to send The Blues into the next round.

Brackley Town  5-1  Darlington   16 Nov 2019

Famine or feast

After netting just once in four games, Brackley ended their goal famine and found a goal feast in an impressively ruthless display.  A fire-cracker of a first half saw Saints run in five goals to end the game as a contest by the break.  It could have been very different had Jarrett Rivers’ curling effort found the target or Stephen Thompson’s header not hit the post from the ensuing corner all in the first five minutes as the visitors started strongly.
