    Thank you to everyone today from @BrackleyTownFC and Banbury Hospital for their assistance with @ioanrichards17. Ioan was taken off & left the ground before FT in an ambulance. However he’s now been discharged from hospital & will return to training on Thursday.

    The result doesn’t matter as long as he is ok- good news.

    The club should have a duty of care not to play players in that condition then.

    I don't imagine he was in an ambulance requiring condition when the game started.
    Pitying people who need to drink alcohol to have a good time since 4th June 2017.

    Not the best result. Where was Spencer today? Agree with comments from others that we need some cover in central defence. Would think Knowles or even Hanks would be a safer option than untried kids. Hope Ioan is ok mind you. His condition doesn't sound pleasant.

    Still in a good league position and averaging around 1.5 points per game. Positive, if inconsistent, start.

    Only played one of the current bottom 9 teams in our seven games as well, and though early days, you'd imagine the table is beginning to take shape.

    Knowles replaced Richards and did a reasonable job alongside Sam. Kieran Smith came on late and looked very polished- it enabled Josh to move into midfield where he used his energy to great effect. On the day, the very good, quick, Brackley centre half was too good for Joe but he was living on scraps at best. And Jake struggled to win any ball at all. Best player on the park for me was the Brackley no. 9 Lee Ndlovu - a proper centre forward in the Marlon mode though luckily not as deadly in front of goal.
    But heigh ho..We made Boston look pretty ordinary on Saturday and they annihilate Altrincham today... Football in this weather is stupid-- FIFA please take note.

    Neil, do you honestly think that the Club wouldn’t have the best interests of the players at heart?
    Total tosh.
    As for the game we were second best for most of it, two easily conceded goals in 31 degree heat!Granted it was same for both sides but they coped better than we did.Little cohesion against a physical yet not dirty Brackley outfit.
    It looked the game came a few days too early for us, we looked jaded and tired.
    MC honest in the post match interview.
    As for any good points, Josh Thomas, Vincent Harper played well
    Negative points all three subs were anonymous as was Jake Jackson for the entire time he was on the pitch.
    That said we have taken 10 points so far and if you make a season of that we will be safe!
    Not all doom and gloom.

    I saw on twitter the Ndlovu and thought that the ex Birmingham/Coventry winger peter Ndlovu was still playing... they must be related though as it’s not a surname you see everyday.
    If he was half the player Peter was I can see why you would rate him.

    It was always going to be tough on all teams to have played in the heat on Saturday and then 48 hours later have to do it all again in even hotter weather. A very unusual set of circumstances to have to cope with.
