Football in Bracknell

Watch Wokingham & Emmbrook FC President Mark Ashwell talk about the clubs future

We spoke to a very happy Wokingham & Emmbrook President Mark Ashwell after he watched his side beat local rivals Woodley United 4-3 at Lowther Road.

Our man Mark Pugh spoke to Ashwell about the future developments at the club, what the hopes are for the future and what the plans are for the ground – Mr Ashwell confirmed the floodlights at Lowther Road would go on in time to celebrate his and the club chairman’s Graham Tabor’s 60th birthdays on 31st March 2018.

Listen to the interview here:

We also asked Mark about the 1982 FA Cup first round fixture against Cardiff City and he confirmed to us the story about striker George Torrance being flown over to the game from Berlin where he was based as a soldier.

We recorded the interview for posterity on our facebook page:
