WINSLOW United and Buckingham Athletic have been placed in South Midlands League Division One for the 2012/13 season.

With an odd number of teams due in each division, it was decided, following a vote, that United should return to the division they left when they withdrew their senior teams from the league prior to the 2009/10 season.

After one year out, the two senior teams, under new management, re-started the following season (2010–11) in Division Two.

Now the club are well on the way to re-building as they turn to youth and the local area in order to take the club forward.

Meanwhile Athletic will be looking to improve on last season’s 18th position.

Other teams in the league include Bedford Town and Hatfield Town, who were relegated from the Premier Division last season.
