The Academy had to fight for a result against Romford today and came away with a 3-1 victory.

With the Academy currently in three leagues, with the highest being Step 6 (Thurlow Nunn) and so many games postponed due to weather, the games are coming thick and fast.

We currently have five games over a period of six days scheduled, across all three leagues, but with the size and depth of the Academy, we’re in a good position to field a strong team in every fixture.

The Academy have their toughest test tomorrow away to Wivenhoe in the Thurlow Nunn, Wivenhoe are still unbeaten this season and aim to stay that way, but if Braintree play at their best, they will be very tough to beat.

After the weekend, all attention will be focused on the Conference Youth Alliance league. Braintree have a tough challenge ahead of them, facing 2nd place Brentwood, twice in a week and 1st place Histon. If Braintree rise to the challenge it could see them take the title, but top three finish would be a fantastic achievement and the highest the Academy has finished in three years.
