Brackley Away Match Report.
FA Trophy. 13/12/16 (7:45 KO)
Frenchy & TIm & I set off at 3pm from Blackpool on the long trip to Brackley. Humour and laughs on the way down and great Rally driving by Frenchy, around the country lanes of Macclesfield to avoid the 1 hour delay on the M6 kept everything interesting. A man reversing a car up a tree was a highlight as we got there just after kick off. So after just under 5 hours of driving let the match begin.
We got there to be 1-0 down, things did’nt improve and 3-0 down at half time was not what we were after.
Rowey, Bondy & Brendan come on and tried to liven things up. Rowey come close a couple of times but Brackley scored again. Oh well time for a few songs and a bang of the drum. Frenchy declined singing so it was down to Tim & I to wind a few Brackley players up, only 1 nibble but in good jest. The game ended and Josh & Casper came over to shake our hands and apologise, a great gesture but the Fylde 3 still had a great night.
A Brackley fan but us a drink each and we were applauded out of their clubhouse for coming down. A great Gesture from their fans. Back to the Road and getting home at 2am wasn’t a highlight but we would do it all again.
Following your team isn’t just about the match its about the trip and meeting new people. We win more than we lose so no complaints
Now onto Gloucester…
