Milton Keynes Borough aren’t the first side from the town we’ve come up against – and they aren’t first to meet an unhappy end either. Long before the Dons came to town, Milton Keynes had an indifferent relationship to football. As the largest celebration of roundabouts in the UK got its status as a fellow New Town in the late 1960s, new clubs looked to take advantage in the population boom. Among these was this club.

Like us, they were a Borough.

Like us, a New Town too.

And like us, they started out in United Counties League.

Our one meeting was by virtue of the draw for the FA Cup Preliminary Round draw during the 1986-7 season. We won a five-goal thriller on the day; edging our guests out by the odd goal. It was actually the only time that Boro’ played in the FA Cup. The season before, they’d lost 2-1 at Hednesford Town. The club dropped off the radar in 1993 after finishing 12th in the South Midlands League Premier Division. Why? We’re not sure.

But we do know that a Milton Keynes FC formed to take their place. And we think that one also met an unhappy end too.


Milton Keynes Borough: The Facts

Who are Milton Keynes Borough?

To be honest, this club didn’t start life as Milton Keynes Borough. Pies and Mushy Peas appears to be the only decent source of information. Initially a Sunday League side representing a Bletchley company, the club went through several names such as Denbigh United. With a good few of their lads working for Belsize Engineering, however, that company started sponsoring the team. And that prompted another change of name.

As Belsize, they joined the United Counties League Division Three in 1970. To start off, they’d be a safe use of your free bets UK too; rising up into Division One within four seasons and scoring more than 100 goals in each of their first three campaigns! In 1976, along came Boro’; both in Stevenage and in MK too as Belsize changed their name. And after more UCL success, the club moved to Hellenic League Division One in 1979.
