Bracknell Town’s ultras ‘go national’ after Soccer AM tweet

If you’ve been to any of Bracknell Town’s home matches, you’ll have noticed a small but growing band of young supporters – nicknamed the ‘ultras’ who stand behind the goal at Larges Lane with plenty of singing and the odd drum.

The group were in good voice on Saturday and gained notoriety on twitter via Soccer AM’s account which picked up quickly on a video of flares being let off at Larges Lane.

The tweet has 51 comments and 258 retweets at the time of writing.

Here’s the tweet with video from Saturday’s FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round win over Cowes Sports:

In response there were a few pictures of similar atmospheres at grounds around the country.

The original and slightly larger footage from the game is here:

Winning after 1 minute!

Bracknell advanced in the FA Cup courtesy of an own goal, a debut strike from Liam Ferdinand and a third from centre back Joe Gater.

The Robins move on to the Preliminary Round where they renew acquaintances with Evo Stik Southern League Division 1 side Winchester City.
