OLD BRADWELL UNITED FC - A BRIEF HISTORY
The club was established in the late 1920s and joined the North Bucks League in 1930. They struggled at first, finishing bottom in their first season and suffering relegation from Division 1 a few seasons later. They were Division 2 champions in 1938 before the war interrupted proceedings. They remained in the league on and off for several years, winning Division 1 (now the league's second-tier) in 1978 to secure promotion to the Premier Division. They remained here until 1995 when after finishing as runners-up they joined the South Midlands League. Starting in Division 1, they had a decent finish of 5th in 1997 before the league merged with the Spartan League to create the Spartan South Midlands League. Due to their basic facilities and lack of floodlights, they've remained in the bottom tier (known as Division 2 since 2001) for the entirety of their stay. They finished as runners-up to Bovingdon in 2019 which was the best in their history. Before the season was abandoned in March, they were leading the league with five games in hand on 2nd placed Pitstone & Ivinghoe.
The club has never entered the FA Cup or FA Vase due to lack of facilities but they have won a number of local cups. These include the Buckingham Junior Charity Cup and North Bucks League Cup on several occasions. They also won the Berks & Bucks Junior Cup in 1995 & the Berks & Bucks Senior Trophy and the Spartan South Midlands Division 2 Trophy in 2019. The team is based in Bradwell, a suburb of Milton Keynes with a population of around 9,600.
