Latest Aylesbury United News
Aylesbury United winger/full back Zack Reynolds has signed for Southern League Champions Hemel Hempstead Town, as reported by Pitchero Non League.
The youngster has been in fine form this season, with four goals in his six games, and attracted the attentions of Football League side Millwall, where he spent a week training, after scoring a spectacular hat-trick against Egham Town.
Hemel have enjoyed a mixed start since promotion to the Vanarama Conference South, which will be a step up of two divisions for Reynolds, where he will join other former Aylesbury men in assistant manager Stuart Maynard, and defenders David King and Kieran Murphy.
We thank Zack for his efforts in his three years with the Ducks, and wish him well in his new challenge.
Meanwhile, defender John Mulholland has signed for New Bradwell St Peter as he steps up his recovery from injury.
After missing the entire 2013/14 campaign having had surgery on his anterior cruciate ligament, 'Fritz' came through 45 minutes of a friendly at Winslow United last week unscathed, and has now rejoined his former club in order to regain match fitness ahead of a push to regain his place in the Ducks team.
New Bradwell host Clean Slate - a new side to the Spartan South Midlands League - in a Division Two fixture this weekend, with Mulholland in line for a first competitive match since March 2013.
This Saturday, Aylesbury take on Bedford Town for the first time in eight years.

Rugby Town travelled to Staffordshire and came away with a hard earned 3-1 extra time win over Chasetown of the Evo-Stik Northern League Premier Division. David Kolodynski - as so often - was Valley's hero, scoring in the first minute and then twice in extra time to complete a hat-trick and settle a tense game.
New Barton Rovers signing Tony Burnett made it three goals in two games as his double helped his side overcome Northwood 3-2. The visitors twice came from behind before youngster Alex Condon came off the bench to score the winner - and his first goal for the club - five minutes from time.
Jack Mazzone's penalty had given Godalming Town a 52nd minute lead at Beaconsfield SYCOB on Monday, but the hosts equalised almost immediately before Ollie Jones netted with nine minutes remaining to send the Rams through.

Bedworth United, Chalfont St. Peter, Kettering Town and Uxbridge form the four Southern League Division One Central sides guaranteed passage to the FA Cup 2nd Qualifying Round following today's results, with another five - Barton Rovers, Beaconsfield SYCOB, Godalming Town, Northwood and Rugby Town - all requiring replays to determine their fate.
Another side, North Greenford United, didn't even get chance to play after their tie at AFC Kempston Rovers was postponed "pending an FA investigation".
Chalfont St. Peter caused something of an upset, as Glenn Yala's goal twelve minutes from time gave the Saints a 2-1 win to knock out Premier Division outfit Hungerford Town, with both sides unbeaten in their previous five matches.
An all Division One Central clash saw another two in-form teams meet, as Aylesbury FC hosted league leaders Kettering Town at Haywood Way, where a crowd of 342 saw Jason Lee net his first since signing for the Poppies to open the scoring as the visitors ran out 2-1 winners.
Bedfont & Feltham, who had shocked Leighton Town in the previous round, were clinically disposed of by Uxbridge, who racked up the biggest score of all Southern League sides as they won 6-0, with Craig Tomkins and Matt Woods scoring two each.
Danny Dubidat's second hat-trick in successive games made it four wins on the spin in league and cup for Bedworth United, who won comfortably 3-0 at Midland Football League side Boldmere St. Michaels.

Debutant Tony Burnett, signed in the week from Dunstable Town, gave Barton Rovers a late lead against Northwood, but that only lasted seven minutes as George Nicholas equalised a tight game in the 86th minute, whilst another all Division One Central clash between Godalming Town and Beaconsfield SYCOB ended goalless.
Also clinging onto survival in the competition are Rugby Town, whose Jamie Towers provided the second half response to a first half opener against Unibond League Division One South outfit Chasetown in a 1-1 draw.
Out of the FA Cup are Daventry Town, who lost 2-1 at Premier Division side Hitchin Town to become the only Division One Central side eliminated on the day.
Elsewhere, Bedford Town and Leighton Town filled their free Saturday by bringing forward their Red Insure Cup First Round tie, and it was the Reds who built on their league win at the Eyrie in August by going through 4-2 on penalties having twice battled back from a goal down, the match ending 2-2.
