Next up – Thame United away on Saturday, 13th August.
The ASM Stadium, Meadow View Park, Thame, Oxon. OX9 3RN

Pitching-In Southern League Division One (Central); kick off 3pm.

Admission: £8 Adults, £5 Seniors, Under 16's £3.

Pre-season hasn't been our most successful but there again since when did that matter? The real thing starts this Saturday and the main concern could well be the heat. Temperatures in the mid-thirties are forecast and I'm anticipating drinks breaks around the 22 and 67 minute marks. If that isn't enough a pitch that has been baked hard will be challenging.

Ware will be welcoming a number of new players to the side plus one who has been missing for almost a season due to injury. Dan Rumens hopes to be back in central defence and we wish him well along with the hope that he survives 2022/3 free of serious injury. Sam Chaney is also back from injury and looking to a full season in a Ware shirt whilst we also welcome Richard Bryan for his first league game.

The corresponding fixture last year saw us win a close match by the single goal of the game. Liam Hope has moved to the coaching side this season so we are unlikely to see him despatching penalties the way he did in that game but we now have Rene Howe in the striking role having moved from last season's champions Bedford Town.

Liam's goal wouldn't have brought us three points last season if Brad Robinson hadn't made an earlier point blank save to deny Thame the lead. Brad has moved on but we welcome Fred Burbidge between the sticks after last season in the premier division with Hendon.

So plenty of changes to our team but the ambition remains the same - promotion either directly or by the play-offs. As last year your support will play a big part in achieving that.

Thame will be equally hopeful of the new season and confident of improving on last year's eighth place. A tight game is in prospect.
