VIDEO: Ford wants to lift the supporters

Banbury United manager Mike Ford wants to give the club’s supporters something to cheer in his first season in charge.

The Puritans entertain Swindon Supermarine in Saturday’s opening Evo-Stik Southern League fixture at Spencer Stadium and Ford is looking for his side to hit the ground running.

Ford took time out during pre-season training in the build-up to the Division One South & West clash, to speak to the Banbury Guardian about his aspirations for the coming campaign.
