The club can confirm that Mike has signed a contract to be manger in 2019-20 season

Banbury United are pleased to confirm that manager Mike Ford has signed a contract to manage the club for the 2019-20 season, his fifth season with the club.

Commenting on the news Club Chairman Phil Lines said

“We are delighted that Mike has agreed to stay on as Manager. Mike is an experienced and very good non league manager. The Board and Mike know that this season has not met expectations and our results must improve in 2019-20. However with the appointment of Andy Sinnott as Director of Football to work with Mike to oversee player recruitment we believe that the club can make the progress needed to be challenging for the play-offs next season. Mike knows we are ambitious and that this is the target of the club.”

Mike Ford said

"I am absolutely delighted to have agreed a new contract for the upcoming season 2019-20. I was proud and privileged when appointed four years ago and feel exactly the same today. This is an outstanding football club who have progressed tremendously. Last season was an obvious disappointment in comparison to the previous three, I am absolutely committed to making the team more competitive for the new campaign thus making the match day experience for our supporters a pleasant and enjoyable one".

Mike will attend the Open Forum at the club on 9 May and take questions from supporters
