Brackley Town 1-0 Northampton Town    23 July 2019

Saints overcome Cobblers in entertaining pre-season match

On a sweltering evening at St James Park, Brackley deservedly beat county neighbours Northampton Town. The Saints enjoyed more of the chances in a performance that was much more up-tempo compared to Saturday’s disappointing goalless draw against Banbury.

 

Brackley Town  0-0  Banbury United    20 July 2019

Little to cheer in pre-season local derby

Near neighbours Banbury United played out a near soporific and instantly forgettable 90 minutes at St James Park, United holding firm as Saints dominated possession but could not create clear cut chances until a late push saw Lee Ndlovu, substitute Tendai Daire and then Jimmy Armson go close to breaking the stalemate.

 

Brackley Town  1-5  MK Dons    16 July 2019

Dons in charge at SJP

A strong MK Dons side were two goals ahead within 10 minutes at St James Park in front of over 1000 supporters on a balmy evening as Kevin Wilkin’s pre-season preparations ramped up.

 

Barwell  0-7  Brackley Town     13 July 2019

Saints’ cup runneth over

Less than 48 hours after Thursday’s game against Oxford United, Kevin Wilkin made wholesale changes to the starting line-up for the trip to Southern League Premier Division Barwell and could be encouraged by the 3-0 half-time lead.  The introduction of further first team regulars brought further goals in a one-sided second period.
