Brackley Town have received a huge financial boost in their bid to rebuilt the clubhouse at St James Park.

The Saints have been awarded a £75,000 Community and Environment Fund grant from HS2.

The grant will be used to help rebuild the clubhouse, which was destroyed by fire just over a year ago.

Chairman Francis Oliver said: “The club is extremely grateful to HS2 and for its contribution to help us rebuild the clubhouse that was destroyed by fire in June 2019.

“We believe that the football club is at the heart of the community in Brackley and the clubhouse itself plays an important role in bringing the local community together.

“As a board, we are also grateful to the ‘Stand Together Campaign’ for their hard work in securing this grant.”
