THE Vanarama National League North play-offs look set to feature all six clubs after Brackley Town became the latest side to confirm their participation.

York City were among the four clubs to already confirm their involvement in the play-offs, which are expected to take place next month, alongside Boston United, Gateshead and Altrincham.

Now Brackley Town, who finished fourth after points-per-game (PPG) decided the final league standings, have confirmed their spot.

The only side yet to publicly state whether or not they will be involved are Chester who are expected to make a decision by the end of this week.

The play-offs are due to start on July 18/19, which begin with the eliminators.

The semi-finals, at which stage York would enter, are to be played on July 25/26 while the final is staged on August 1/2.

All matches will be played behind closed doors while the highest finishing side in the final league table after PPG will be the hosts of each of the matches.

Brackley Town chairman Francis Oliver told the club’s website: “We are not the only club involved to have to look long and hard at the arrangements necessary to participate in the play-offs.

“This is a challenge on all fronts but one we are delighted to have the opportunity to embrace.

“It is the best way to finish the incomplete season – on the pitch.

“The finances are difficult but we started the season aiming for one of the precious promotion places and we look forward to the competition now to see who wins through.”

“This is an entirely new world we are entering and one we had never thought of just a few months ago.

“It seems that everybody will do so,” added Oliver on whether all six clubs will take part.
