Brackley Town manager Jon Brady and chairman Francis Oliver have issued rallying calls to the town’s supporters.

With just seven games of the Vanarama Conference North campaign season remaining, Saints are just one place and a single point above the drop zone. And, given their current sequence of just one win in nine outings, they could be heading back to the Southern League.

Brady said: “Our fans have been brilliant making a lot of noise and getting behind the team. I want to appeal to supporters who may have come along from time to time over the last couple of seasons to get to the remaining games and add your support.

“This is a critical time for the club and it is going to be a very tight finish to the season.”

Oliver added: “The club has come a long way. We have improved our St James Park stadium meeting the standards for football at this level and above.

“We have a wonderful new facility in our artificial pitch which has been a great addition to the all-year round facilities for football in the town.

“We have our development team competing successfully in the Hellenic League and our first team has enjoyed FA Cup success and three seasons at this level.

“We want this to continue and I hope that everybody in the town with an interest in football will get down to our final few home games to lend your support.”

There will be a half-price voucher redeemable for the three remaining games at Saturday’s game with North Ferriby United and there is free entry also for all under-16s accompanied by an adult.
