Long Buckby are a team that first came on our horizon during our United Counties League days. But now we’re poles apart. Since joining the United Counties League, the Bucks haven’t gone anywhere. It’s where we found ’em. And it’s where you’ll still find ’em. We obviously moved on a long time ago and have no intention on going back there. So, the chances of us meeting again any time soon are slim-to-remote. And that’s being optimistic.

Who are Long Buckby?

Formed in 1937 or 1945 (depending on which bit of their Wikipedia page you look at) as Long Buckby Nomads, the club hail from the Northamptonshire village of the same name. Hardly surprising, yeah? In those heady first years of their existence, local leagues were about as exciting as it got for them. The Rugby and District League and Northants Football Combination are just two competitions you’d have found the Bucks taking part in prior to the Summer of ’69. Oh yeah. As man landed on the moon, the Bucks leapt into the United Counties League.

At first, it seemed like a doddle. In their debut season, Long Buckby were crowned champions of UCL Division Three. That step up didn’t faze them either; after going up, two successive Division Two titles were to follow. The second of these pair of titles earned them a place in Division One; actually now the Premier Division after being renamed that summer. It would become a long-standing place of residence for the Bucks. For the next 43 years, the Premier Division is where they were at. And it is where we would find them in the early 1980s.

The car park by the cricket pitch looks like it might double up as the car park for the football ground, which is actually at the end of Watson Road. However, it seems like there’s no parking facilities down there as it is also a farm access road.
