All MK Gallacticos home games at the Sir Herbert Leon Academy this season

Was that agreed to by the SSML, is there a problem with the North Furzton Sports Ground, it gives an unfair advantage to MK Gallacticos doesn't it if they play on 4g every home game and the away team has to adapt to that surface on the day

As precicted, Old Bradwell United Development are on the road on Saturday 3 October in their first Hellenic League Division Two North fixture, unfortunately for them they travel to Adderbury Park who last season beat them three times, twice in the League and also 1-0 in the Chairmans Challenge Cup Third Round before the curtain came crashing down on the campaign.

What a great start to Old Bradwell United Development's Hellenic League Division Two North campaign, apparently Adderbury Park's pitch is unavailable this afternoon so the fixture has been called off although I don't expect they will be too disappointed about not facing a team who appear to hold an Indian sign over them as well as the weather conditions today. The First team do entertain Bovingdon at Abbey Road which has surprisingly survived the deluge however the conditions may well play into the Green Lane Club's favour who have started their SSML Division Two campain in promising fashion with two wins from two games unlike David Keene's men who are still smarting from a surprise 2-0 defeat at MK Gallacticos last Saturday (see link):

It is beginning to look as if the SSML Division Two Championship isn't going to be a foregone conclusion afterall, as was fully expected a month or so ago with Old Bradwell United having already dropped four points with the recent 2-0 defeat at MK Gallacticos and a 2-2 draw at Tring Corinthians AFC last Saturday (10 October) where they were fortunate in the end to come away from Icknield Way with a point despite twice taking the lead through Darryl Smith and Ben Green (see match report). The previous week (3 October) Bovingdon were the visitors to Abbey Road (see match report) in difficult weather conditions and David Keene's men made heavy weather of winning 3-1 with goals from Tommy Cooke, Ross Butler and Ben Greene, it was 1-1 at the break with Darryl Smith missing his second successive penalty early in the second period before two late goals saw off Bovingdon who some days later announced an outbreak of Covid-19 at their Green Lane headquarters. Following the postponement of their visit to Adderbury Park, the Development team finally saw their first Hellenic League Division Two North action of the new campaign last Saturday when hosting Buckingham Athletic Development who already had a League win under their belt as well as a Bluefin Challenge Cup First Round success and their strength told in a smash and grab 1-0 win against a young Old Bradwell United team. This Saturday (17 October) the Development team play in the Chairmans Challenge Cup First Round at fellow Division Two North side Heyford Athletic whilst the First team entertain Aston Clinton who won't just travel to Abbey Road and roll over, neither fixture happened last season due to the virus outbreak and the Club's last locked horns on 4 May 2019 at Aston Clinton Park shortly after meeting at Bell Close in a memorable Division Two Cup Final:

No major difficulties for Old Bradwell United this afternoon as they beat Aston Clinton 3-1 at Abbey Road with goals from Jakk Pursey, Daniel Smith and Darryl Smith, next Saturday (24 October) they go to The 61 FC (Luton) so a fully expected three points at the Kingsway Recreation Ground will keep David Keene's men nicely within touching distance of Codicote who have a 100% unblemished League record thus far. Meanwhile the Development side travelled to Heyford Athletic for a Chairmans Challenge Cup First Round tie and disappointingly went down 5-2, it hasn't been a great start to the campain for Lee Kimberley's young side however it is still early days with just one Hellenic League Division Two North fixture played albeit two quick First Round Cup exits, this afternoon and in the Bluefin Challenge Cup, next Saturday they welcome Headington Amateurs to Abbey Road.
