Club statement

Saturday 20 February 2021

Following the announcement that the National League North season is to be declared null and void with immediate effect, Brackley Town Football Club has issued the following statement:

While respecting the decision voted on by National League clubs, we are bitterly disappointed for the players, supporters, sponsors and everyone associated with the club that the season is not able to continue.  The club recognises the importance of maintaining the integrity of the National League at Steps 1 and 2 and the importance of football to our supporters while acknowledging the very real financial challenges and protecting the long-term future of the club.


The National League has distributed resolutions this evening for Member Clubs to consider the outcome of the 2020/21 season. 

The resolutions are formed of four parts: one Special Resolution and three Ordinary Resolutions based on the outcome of the first. A Special Resolution requires a 75% majority to be passed, whereas an Ordinary Resolution requires a more than 50% majority. Resolution 1 and 4 votes will be counted under prescribed voting conditions. Resolution 2 and 3 will be counted with one vote per Member Club. 


With football returning to St James Park this Saturday 6th Feb 2021 it will still be behind Closed Doors with no entry for fans. 

The games are being live streamed with match passes available priced at just £4.99.
