Ford says Puritans will stick to their principals

Banbury United are back where they belong and, 12 months on from the start of a successful promotion campaign, Southern League premier division football returns.

The Puritans kick-off the new Evo-Stik Southern League campaign at Basingstoke Town on Saturday before welcoming Slough Town to the Banbury Plant Hire Community Stadium on Tuesday.

Manager Mike Ford has promised his side will not change the style of play which reaped rewards last season.

He spoke to the Banbury Guardian about his thoughts for the new campaign.
