Referee: Mr: Derek Hughes.

Brading Town Man of the Match: Daniel VALE.

A good, all round performance on a difficult pitch and in awful conditions. Brading led 0-1 at half time, thanks to Dan Vale’s goal , a solid back four and two superb saves from Payner.

With the slope and wind at their backs in the second half, the Romans sealed the win, with 2 further goals from Vale and an excellent strike from Blair Burns.

The lads worked very well against a Niton side, that never gave up and at times played some decent stuff.

Woodnutt had a superb game, looking much like his old self. He was just shaded to the MOM award by Vale, who has looked very sharp, since returning from his operation and he was a constant threat. His hat-trick was superbly well taken and as always, he worked tirelessly.

With Burford, Quigley, Oatley and Lacey to come back and the lads from the reserves doing very well , we can look forward to the second half of the season.

Brading Town FC, are delighted to announce that Aaron Burford has returned to the club, following a short spell at Newport FC.

Burf has found the travelling difficult, as many other players do. Aaron has found that working Saturday mornings, has put paid to travelling. Aaron stayed on Island forms with us, but for a suspension picked up at Newport, he would have been available this weekend.

” I am delighted to welcome Aaron back to the club. It was his performances for Brading that brought him to the attention of Newport. He is a quality player and will lift the squad, not only on the pitch but in the changing room as well ”



Player news……..

Scott Lawson has not left the club. He has tho, signed Wessex forms for Newport (IOW) FC.

When he is available and Brading Town have not got a game, he will play for Newport.  Scott has spoken to me and assured me, that Brading Town are his priority. He will help Newport, as and when he can.

Brading Town are delighted to announce the signing of Matt Verstraeten, from East Cowes Vics. Matt is a versatile player, who has Wessex League experience and will help our young squad.

We may also be welcoming back a player to the club over the next few days……

The Club wish Sandown Rotary every success in their new base and thank them for their continued support.

Brading Town Colts Remembers at Christmas game……..


The 100 year Anniversary of the Christmas Truce game during World War 1, was marked by the Under 13s Colts team on 27th December.

The team manager, Simon Bligh, organised the game between the players and a team made up of Brading Coaches and Supporters.

After a committed but good natured performance from both sides, the game ended in a 6-6 draw. In fitting fashion, handshakes, smiles and not a little banter followed the final whistle.
