Skipper Heads Up Another Triple Signing

Thursday 21 June 2018 - 11:24 pm | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | |

Club captain Jack Wood is amongst the latest trio of players to have committed to Aylesbury United for the 2018/19 season. The three are:

Aaron Berry

Imposing centre forward with an impressive scoring record in Southern League football, he netted 6 goals in 11 games for the Ducks after joining in February last season. Came through the FAB Academy before making the breakthrough with Beaconsfield SYCOB and has also played for Egham Town from whom he joined United.

Jake Bewley

Ever reliable left back who has barely missed a game since joining the Ducks four years ago, and has now amassed more than 180 club appearances, scooping three end of season awards along the way. Previously with Leighton Town and has had spells at both Dunstable Town and AFC Dunstable.

Jack Wood

Club captain and another quality member of the squad, Jack has shown incredible loyalty to Aylesbury having passed the 400 appearances mark last season as he enters his ninth season with the Ducks. Has collected at least one end of season award in each of those with his total now standing at an incredible 14!

Three More Signings

Wednesday 20 June 2018 - 12:19 pm | Added by: Admin to First Team, Club News | |

Following hot on the heels of yesterday's announcement that the first batch of players had signed for the 2018/19 season, we are now delighted to announce a further three have put pen to paper:

Callum Mapley

Young defender who joined the club in January to bolster the club's backline and immediately impressed. Only 20-years he quickly formed a solid partnership with Jack Wood and has plenty of potential to develop further. A product of the 'FAB Academy' Callum was previously with Beaconsfield SYCOB/Town and Holmer Green.

Matt Peake-Pijnen

Another 20-year old, Matt arrived in February from Oxford City having also featured in the Southern League for Beaconsfield SYCOB and, last season, Banbury United - where he made 22 appearances. A left sided player he is versatile enough to play in any role asked on the flank.

Greg Williams

'The Leader' signs on again for what will be his 12th season with Aylesbury United, and what more can be written about a true club legend? Curretly on 438 appearances, he is now second in the all-time club appearances list and, even in his early 40s as he is now, continues to turn in fine performances to the extent that he won Supporters' and Manager's Player of the Year last season.

First Summer Signings Confirmed

Tuesday 19 June 2018 - 4:53 pm | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | |

Manager Ben Williams has been busy signing on players, and we can now confirm the first five Aylesbury United players to have signed Southern League forms for the 2018/19 season:

Mex Hercules

The first new name this summer, Max is an 18-year old exciting winger who has made 60 appearances for Tring Athletic since breaking into their first team two years ago. A big part of Tring's run to the FA Vase 5th Round last season.

Ollie Hogg

Now firmly established in the United engine room, this will be Ollie's third full season with the Ducks having made the switch from Aylesbury FC via spells with Tring Athletic and Leighton Town. 5 games away from 100 for the club.

Jack Hopwood

Young goalkeeper who joined from Tring Athletic midway through last season after three and a half years with our Hertfordshire neighbours. Began his Aylesbury career with three successive clean sheets and finished with another three from his 13 appearances.

Harry Jones

Midfielder who made his first team debut at the start of last season aged just 17, going on to feature 45 times for the Ducks. Plenty of potential, he will be looking to develop further and contribute more to what could be an exciting season for Aylesbury.

Ben Seaton

Understated attacking midfielder with excellent ability who came in to the club in October 2017 and ended the season winning the 'Gary Hawksworth Memorial Trophy For Most Improved Player' for his ever improving displays.

Final Preseason Friendly Confirmed

Thursday 31 May 2018 - 09:26 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | | Used tags: ,

Aylesbury United will travel to Northwood on Saturday 4th August, completing their preseason friendly schedule for the forthcoming season.

With the Woods transferred to the new Isthmian Central league for next season, the two clubs will not be league opponents for the first time in 5 years, thus making perfect Step 4 opponents as Ben Williams prepares for his first full campaign at the helm.

Supporters are also advised that the match against Bovingdon on 10th July will be played at Tring Corinthians' ground (Icknield Way, Tring) with a 6.30pm kick off.
