Our Opponents

Buckngham Athletic play in the Spartan South Midlands League Division 1 – which is a non-league step 6 the same as UCL Division 1, and the same level as earlier opponents Crawley Green. They are managed by former player Damien Whiffen who took over the reins earlier this summer.

The Dog and Duck

During the summer both WTFC and AFC R&D volunteers have been working at the Dog and Duck on various projects – of which Dale’s Bar is one of them – see here for the WTFC review of that work, and here for an update from AFC R&D. There is always a need for additional volunteers to help with ongoing maintenance and matchday work, so if you are able to volunteer please contact the club – details here.
