One to watch 

Striker, Lee Ndlovu

Formerly of Grantham Town and Ilkeston, Ndlovu signed for Brackley in 2016 and has proven to be a very astute addition.

The forward not only provides a physical presence for The Saints but also a bagful of goals each season. In his 186 appearances for Brackley, he has managed to notch 56 goals.

Last time out in this competition, Ndlovu opened the scoring against Bishop’s Stortford in the 14th minute with a smart finish underneath the keeper.
