Brackley Town 2-2 Chorley 1/9/18
O’Keefe double secures unlikely come-back
Chorley surrendered the division’s only 100% record in a game that had everything for the neutral. Brackley dominated the first hour of the match and should have been out of sight creating chances seemingly at will against an oddly muted Chorley side. Matt Lowe hit the post, Lee Ndlovu headed over when unmarked and Matt Urwin turned Jimmy Armson’s header over from close range in a first half in which Saints denied The Magpies even a glimpse on goal and scored twice to earn a deserved half-time lead.
Brackley Town 0-0 York City 25/8/18
Points shared in close encounter
A first half of few chances gave way to a second period of even fewer goal scoring opportunities as Brackley and York cancelled each other out in a tight, tactical, tense encounter at St James Park. It was nevertheless an absorbing game for the 580 spectators.
AFC Telford United 2-1 Brackley Town 14/8/18
