Leighton Town made a winning start to their pre-season campaign with a 3-2 win over Buckingham Athletic at Bell Close.

Goals from Mark Reilly, Dave Brown and Albie Hall were enough to see Leighton to victory.

The squad, the first put together by new manager Paul Burgess, was a mixture of familiar faces from last season, and a host of new players too.

Leighton Town have three more friendlies before the season starts, starting on Saturday when they entertain Barton Rovers at Bell Close, kicking off at 3pm.

They then welcome Dunstable Town on Tuesday July 26 (kick off 7.45pm) and then Cogenhoe United on Saturday July 30 (3pm).

The season starts on Saturday August 6 with an FA Cup preliminary game against Northampton Sibley Rangers at Bell Close.
