Neil Baker and Jon Underwood on their Bracknell Town days




Slough Town are currently riding high in the English Non League Football Pyramid under managers Jon Underwood and Neil Baker who have been a managerial partnership at the Rebels and previously Godalming Town for nine years.

Before they were put in charge of getting Slough back up the divisions though, they formed a formidable defensive wall at then Ishtmian League Division Two side Bracknell Town in the early 2000s under former Farnborough Town manager Alan Taylor.

In the latest episode of Berkshire Football Stories, Neil and Jon talk about their playing careers with the Robins, what was a tight knit group that saw last day relegation escapes, FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round action and County Cup Final disappointment.
