During the tour of Bracknell Town FC’s new facility at Larges Lane, chairman Kayne Steinborn-Busse revealed that supporters will be asked via the FootballinBracknell website to suggest a name for the clubs new main stand.
Mr Steinborn-Busse said: “We are opening this up to the clubs supporters to name the new stand, but to be clear – there will be no ‘Boaty McBoatface’ options!”.
See the full rules at the bottom of the page..
Ideas already floating around include naming after the clubs modern day top goalscorer Justin Day, or defensive fan favourite Peter Skerritt – but definitely not Standy McStandface.
So right now we’d like your nominations for ‘club legends’ that the stand could be named after – and we’ll hold a public vote on the website.
Nominations will CLOSE at midday on Thursday 1st December.

- Definitely no Boaty McBoatface or similar will be considered
