Hereford  1-1  Brackley Town   24/8/19 

Armson leveller earns deserved away point 

Neither team did quite enough to earn the three points from a hard fought game played in exhausting heat that was inevitably a factor and caused the officials to allow an official drinks break in each half. 

 

Brackley Town  1-0  Altrincham   17/8/19

Super strike sets up home win

Brackley came out on top in a clash of two of last season’s play-off teams courtesy of Shane Byrne’s stunning first half strike.  The goal came on the half hour and was struck sweetly by Byrne from 20 yards finding the net low past Steve Drench at full stretch in off the post.

 

Brackley Town  1-1  King’s Lynn Town    13/8/19 

Added time frustration for Saints 

A dramatic finale of two added time penalties denied Brackley a second home win of the season after an assured performance that deserved better. 

 

York City  1-0  Brackley Town   10/8/19

Solitary goal condemns Saints to second defeat

Andy Bond’s 55th minute long range effort that crept in off the post was the defining moment of an intensely competitive but ultimately fruitless game for Brackley at York’s Bootham Crescent.  The win sent City top of the embryonic National League North table leaving Saints with one win from the opening three fixtures of the new season.

The home side enjoyed the better of things but Saints remained steadfast in their task and almost grabbed an added time equaliser at the end of the game as Glenn Walker was foiled in a goalmouth scramble.
