Saints Keeper Danny Eager For More Promotion Memories

Veteran keeper Danny Lewis is determined to add another promotion to his CV - he’s had enough mid-table finishes to last him a lifetime!

The ex-Kidderminster stopper is one of the key reasons the Saints will today be competing for a place in next season’s National League.

Lewis made a number of fine saves to deny Bradford Park Avenue in last weekend’s semi-final, including a miraculous stop with his foot deep into extra time.

The 35-year-old is Brackley's special player feature in today's official matchday programme.

And he’s desperate to emulate his achievement with Solihull Moors back in 2016 - his first promotion - before the Saints' visit to Wembley in the FA Trophy final next weekend.

He said: “You know that these opportunities are few and far between. You work hard all season and then it all comes down to one game. You can’t let it pass you by because you can’t be sure when you’ll be involved in something like this again.

“My only promotion was a couple of seasons ago with Solihull. For the first 12 or so years of my career there was nothing to speak of - just constant mid-table finishes!

“You take the big games for granted at times. Football is all about experiencing those highs because they’re fantastic when they come.

“The win against Bradford on Sunday was great to be a part of and we’ve got another huge one coming up against Harrogate that we’re all looking forward to.”
