Brackley T – The Vale – Sat 4 Feb

We welcome Brackley Town to The Vale this coming  Saturday (4 Feb)  for a Buildbase FA Trophy 3rd Round tie kick-off 15:00.

Our visitors are sitting just outside the play-off places, with games in hand on those above them in the Vanarama National League North having won 11, drawn 8 and lost 5 scoring 37 and conceding 28 goals so far this season. Last night they suffered a 0-3 league defeat at home to Stockport County who they beat in the 2nd Round of the Trophy 2-0 at home in a replay after the original game finished one apiece.

The Stones management team and squad will be ready for another hard fought encounter as both sides look to progress in the Buildbase FA Trophy Competition.   Get behind the lads from the off, make plenty of noise akin to the great atmosphere that was created at Southport for the 90+ minutes.
