(Tuesday 5th September 2017)
After an excellent, if somewhat physically draining, win at Fairford Town on Saturday, Saints manager Gordon Kille chose to shuffle his squad around again for the visit to Royal Wootton Bassett Town on Tuesday evening. Ali Worby returned in goal, Sam Bridges and Sam Hartley were replaced in the defence by Dean March and Charlie Kille, Joeb Evans came back in to play alongside James Hammond in midfield, Matt Johnson moved into the number 10 role for the first time this season and Ryan Knight started on the left of the attack.
Fairford Town 1 v 2 Brackley Town Saints
(Saturday 2nd September 2017)
Saints travelled for their first ever game against last season's Hellenic League Division 1 West champions Fairford Town with a strong squad which was boosted by the inclusion of talented attacking midfielder Greg Kaziboni making his return to the game after a long period out with injury. Manager Gordon Kille included Kaziboni in the Saints starting 11, brought back central defender Sam Hartley to play alongside skipper Joe Ward, Alex Stott in attacking midfield, and opted to keep Sam Bridges at right back following an impressive performance at Oxford City Nomads on Monday.
Oxford City Nomads 2 v 2 Brackley Town Saints
Somewhat of a rarity for Saints on this hot and sunny Bank Holiday Monday afternoon as manager Gordon Kille was able to name an almost unchanged starting 11. The only change from Saturday's game was forced on the Saints manager as young midfielder Keegan Giles was unavailable so Joeb Evans was handed the opportunity to make his first Hellenic Premier league start in the centre of Saints midfield.
Brackley Town Saints 0 - 1 Highworth Town
After last Saturday's superb performance at Burnham, Saints fans would have been hoping for more of the same but, once again, injuries and player unavailability meant more changes for the visit of high flying Highworth Town. With Saints manager Gordon Kille also away coaches Gary Courtney and Mark Murphy took the reins and both will have been pleased to have the excellent Dan Farrell available to start for the first time this season in the Saints goal. Returning to the starting 11 were centre back Dean March, attacking midfielders Callum Williams and Chris Jordan. Coming in to the side for a 1st start of the season was right back Sam Bridges and midfielder Keegan Giles, at just 16 years old, made his Hellenic League debut, another young player stepping up to senior football from the Brackley Town Player Development Academy.
