Orchard is a former Robins player who has managed Silverstone, Old Bradwell, New Bradwell St Peter and Whitworth.
He began his playing career with Rushall Olympic and also played for Holly Lane Sports in the Midland Combination.
In 1994 Orchard moved to Northamptonshire where he spent most of his playing days with local sides like Roade and Silverstone FC.
It was with Silverstone that he cut his teeth in management for two years before moving to Old Bradwell United of Molten Spartan South Midlands League Division Two as assistant-manager.
He eventually took the reins and achieved a respectable seventh placed finish, a place in the divisional cup final and their first ever SML `Team of the Month` award.
On the back of this he was appointed first-team manager at SML Division One side New Bradwell St Peter where he enjoyed a successful two-year spell, guiding them to a top six finish and winning team of the month twice.
Also joining the Buckingham management team are UEFA 'B' coach Stuart Hardwick and goalkeeping coach Andy Wharton.
