Appledore have withdrawn from the SW Peninsula League Division One East - They cite player commitment and uncertainty over the proposed FA Re-structure in the South West.

Bizarre set of reasons. The only one that remotely makes sense is the player availability one.
They seem surprised that this season they have to play games away from home!
The reorganisation locally is a complete red herring, as there is no chance of them having to play outside the current league boundary next season.

A sad, sad day for me personally having watched most of their home games since moving down here 6 years ago. Player availability has been a major issue for the club over the last couple of seasons. it doesn't help when half the players have departed for North Devon league sides who offer money for playing !!
It has been known for a while that things were not right within the club. The reserve team manager hasn't helped by refusing to allow his players to play for the firsts. A couple of very dedicated people have given a lot to keep the team running at Peninsula League level but if players will not commit then its left them with little choice but to call it a day.

Amateur Football Combination (Old Boys League)

There have been a number of teams withdrawing due to whole teams transferring to different clubs. These days the teams act almost as independent units within the club name.

The most noticeable resignation this season has been Old Egbertians a club with 5 teams 2 years ago has folded. Sad indictment of modern day amateur football.

The question should be why the league allowed them to disband the first team rather than the reserves.

Still shown in the Full Time league table with their 9 league defeats although all outstanding fixtures have been deleted.

Will remove from NLM when removed from the Full Time table.

The Berks & Bucks FA have approved a request for a change of name from Spartan South Midland League club Buckingham Town. The club will be known as Milton Keynes Borough FC, the change to take effect 'early in the new year'.


The change of name has now been approved by both the FA and the Berks & Bucks FA.
However the name listed above has changed again.

As of Monday 14th January the club will be known as MILTON KEYNES ROBINS FC.

I am currently awaiting for the County to make the changes on Whole Game System in order that Full Time can be amended

I did wonder why they chose Robins, and then I saw this:

Brave decision, clubs who change their name to Milton Keynes something do not have a good record of longevity.
Belsize changed name to Milton Keynes Borough in 1976, folded 1993
Bletchley Town changed to Milton Keynes City in 1974, folded 1984
Mercedes Benz also changed to Milton Keynes City in 1998, folded 2003
Wolverton Town changed to Milton Keynes Wolverton Town then changed it back again in 1990 (now Unite FC)

The club that changed it's name to Unite MK was not the original Wolverton Town who folded (not sure of the date)

At least the teams mentioned above were, despite their eventual failure, attempting to look to the future. This latest bunch of chancers are simply, (and dishonestly), seeking to appropriate someone else's past.

What makes you say that? On the face of it and from what I know of the situation, Buckingham Town have lost their home, having been evicted 7 years ago from their home since 1883. They have been unable to find another site in Buckingham and have been playing at a ground in Milton Keynes as a result. With seemingly no options on the table for them to ever move back to Buckingham (which is a very small town and has already has a thriving non-league side in Buckingham Athletic, the obvious choice was to give up the dream of returning to their routes and look to the future (something you accuse them of doing the opposite of strangely) and accept that Milton Keynes is where their future lies.

I shouldn’t think for one minute that this is what the club wanted or tactically planned and deep down those close to the club, or with a historical association with it will be deeply upset and unhappy about it. But seemingly circumstance has led them to where they are, acceptance of said situation has sunk in, and so to me the name change makes logical sense and shuts the door on lingering thoughts and longing feelings about a return to Buckingham, which only serve to keep the club on a negative footing and distracting it from building a better future.

The use of the suffix Robins is a nice touch in my opinion, it acknowledges where the club started from, where its heart was for over 130 years, and retains that important link and identity.
