There was a late pre-season friendly last night (Wednesday) at an always idyllic Crawley Road, Buckingham United took the lead however Cranfield United equalised just before the interval, the hosts then led after 70 minutes only for Buckingham United to equalise with a spot kick ten minutes later. The last ten minutes was like the Alamo however Sean Devine's men stood firm which will stand them in good stead for their SSML Division Two visit to Bovingdon on Saturday:

A Sports Shots 'interview' with Buckingham United supremo Sean Devine ahead of tomorrow's visit to Bovingdon, surely he could have been asked a few more questions:

Devine looks ahead to Buckingham United’s 2020 campaign

18th September 2020 by Andy Bone

Sean Devine has talked with Sports Shots as he takes charge of Buckingham United for another season in Division 2 of the Spartan South Midlands League.

Devine, a former Republic of Ireland B international, who played with Robbie Keane and Damien Duff, was with Barnet, Wycombe Wanderers and Exeter City during his playing career.

Now entering his second season with the Lace Hill-club, Devine has been pleased with United’s summer.

Recruitment has been good and we have had a lot of players asking to come down to train which has been a bonus. We have also retained the core of the squad from last season. With COVID and the guidelines it was strange at first adjusting but has not caused too much disruption.

The United boss has been pleased with his side’s preparations.

Our pre season has gone well in terms of how we want to play, recruiting and always looking to see where we can improve as a team.

With the season starting this Saturday, Devine has realistic ambitions for their division 2 campaign.

Obviously we want to win it but if we can improve on last season it’s a step in the right direction. I’m just looking forward to the season and every one staying safe and healthy.

Sports Shots would like to thank Sean for his time and wish him and Buckingham United all the very best for the season.

Buckingham United's team sheet for the SSML Division Two fixture at Bovingdon which unfortunately they lost 3-2 after leading 2-0 after half an hour, the Reserve team also had a disappointing afternoon losing 3-1 to AFC Santander at the Lace Hill Sports and Community Centre in the North Bucks & District League Intermediate Division:

Buckingham United's First team are 'redundant' tomorrow (26 September) however the Reserves are in North Bucks & District League Intermediate Division action and travel to the delights of village side Great Linford who have started the campaign with a win and a draw, unlike Joe Cooper's men who have lost both their opening fixtures. Next Saturday (3 October) sees the First team travel to Codicote whilst the Reserve side entertain Mursley United Development who they beat 3-1 at the Lace Hill Sports and Community Centre on 7 March whilst still under Matt Marsden's stewardship just before the curtain fell like a stone to sadly curtail last season.
