Here Ben Tilney talks about his career to date at MK Dons and his time on loan at Brackley. This first appeared in The Red & White on 23 September:
At 20, left-back Ben Tilney has a big footballing future ahead of him. With MK Dons since the age of 8 coming through the club’s junior and academy ranks into the first team squad, Ben made 12 appearances for the first team last season including 11 starts. He even scored on his debut away at Newport County in the cup and quite a special goal it was too firing in from 20 yards!
While the action we all love is of course out on the pitch, there is also a world beyond of stats, facts and records that can fascinate and intrigue us. The win away in August at North Ferriby United threw up a rare moment for the record books. Jimmy Armson was on the score-sheet in Saints’ 5-0 win, hitting the back of the net no fewer than four times in 14 second half minutes as his side cut loose.
Brackley Town FC is delighted to announce that Vanarama, sponsor of the Vanarama National League, has named Kevin Wilkin as August Manager of the Month. Kevin picked up this award twice last season.
Brackley Town’s unbeaten run of seven matches, with six wins and one draw, is testimony to Kevin’s work with his team to start the season strongly. August was a remarkable month with the team conceding just twice while finding the net on 15 occasions.
“This is recognition for my team and the work put in by everybody concerned,” Kevin said.
Congratulations from everybody at the club on this well deserved award.
Danny Lewis is Saints’ first choice ‘keeper having spent the last two seasons at Solihull Moors. Here Danny talks exclusively to The Red & White, first published on 19/8/17.
"perfect away performance"
Reflecting on his promotion to the National League with Solihull Moors, keeper Danny Lewis is in no doubt that the lessons learned there can help his new team to success and that the St James Park set-up is ready for this. “We had won the league then had a difficult first season at the higher level,” he says. “I was offered a new contract but fancied a different challenge and, after talking with Kevin, coming here felt right. My only concern was travelling to training after work but I am coming down with a good group and that’s working out well so I feel settled. There is an intensity here and a strong squad. Kevin Wilkin’s man management is excellent as I have experienced already and this makes it a good place to be.”
Striker Andy Brown joined Kevin Wilkin’s side pre-season and made an immediate impact scoring the winning goal in Brackley’s opening day fixture at home against FC United of Manchester. He spoke to The Red and White ahead of the trip to one of his former clubs, AFC Telford. This article first appeared in The Red & White on 15/8/17.
