Team Overview\History:

Bassett Bulldogs began as a 6-a-side team and in 2012 we moved into 11 aside football.

In 2016 we won the George Thomas/Don Rodgers cup and got promoted to the Premier Division in a fantastic season for the club.

The next season we again gained promotion and went up in to the Wilts Prem. After an extremely tough season we came back down to Swindon and
district league looking to rebuild.

Despite a poor league season last year we managed to get to the final of the Swindon Advertiser cup having only played teams in the leagues above us to get there.

How has preseason gone?

Pre season has been mixed. Some good results and some poor. We have
some new players who are integrating well.

Like everyone else in the summer, getting the availability can be an issue. However we are happy with the overall progress throughout preseason.

Predictions for league winners

Everyone seems to be saying they expect to be up there and we would also
hope to be there, you have to back yourselves.

Swindon AFC are extremely consistent and look to have had a good preseason so we would expect them to certainly be close
