For the second time this season, Aylesbury were on the receiving end of four goals from Didcot Town as the Ducks were beaten 4-1 at The Meadow.

An explosive start to the game saw the Ducks fall behind after just 4 minutes, only for Max Hercules to level six minutes afterwards with a stunning goal.

That was as bright as United's afternoon was to get though, and two goals in the next 4 minutes made it 3-1 after 14 minutes, before a fourth goal arrived before half time - which was how it finished at the end.

Weekend Preview from Ben

Manager Ben Williams gives us his thoughts ahead of this weekend's home fixture with Didcot Town:

This week we welcome a strong Didcot team who are clearly aiming for promotion through the playoffs, I believe they have strengthened since they beat us 4-0 earlier in the season so it will be a great test for us.

Squad news: we welcome Ben Seaton back into the squad following injury plus we will be hoping to increase Sonny French's fitness following a long layoff, but Horatio Hirst misses out again through illness.

Benji Aghadiuno has returned to parent club Barnet following the end of his loan and we thank him for his efforts whilst with us, he certainly gave us a much needed lift when joining initially and we wish him well for the future.

First Draw of the Season

Saturday 29 December 2018 - 5:59 pm | Added by: Admin to First Team, Club News | |

Aylesbury drew a league match for the first time of the season as an exhilarating game at Kempston Rovers finished 2-2.

A quality early goal from Horatio Hirst gave the Ducks the lead after just nine minutes and they kept the hosts at bay until half time.

After the break United were forced to repel wave after wave of home attacks, so it was little surprise when former MK Dons striker Izale McLeod levelled on 65 minutes.

Rovers went ahead with only eight minutes to play but Aylesbury managed to salvage a point at the death when Benji Aghadiuno tapped home after fellow substitute Tre Mitford hit the post.

Squad News - Update from Ben

Friday 28 December 2018 - 10:07 pm | Added by: Admin to First Team, Club News | | Used tags:

Manager Ben Williams is delighted to welcome two new signings to the squad in right back Anthony Ball and goalkeeper Ashley Jenkins.

Anthony is 19 and was highly regarded when virtually ever-present for Aylesbury FC last season, before joining Berkhamsted in the summer. Ashley has plenty of experience and was first choice for Aylesbury FC over the past two years having also played for a number of other clubs recently.

Unfortunately Matt Peake-Pijnen has decided to join Thame United, and we wish him all the best for the future after just short of 30 games for the club after signing in February.

Ben comments: "We travel to Kempston with quite a few knocks and unavailability due to the time of year, so a few will fill the bench to help the squad even though they are struggling.

We hope to have Sonny French back in the next couple of weeks and he will feel like a new signing. We are in a little rut at the moment with results just going against us when they could have just gone for us, we are all working hard especially with our backs currently to the wall but we are determined to turn the corner again very soon.

After the disappointment of the Thame game - surprisingly even with a weakend squad - I can’t wait for the Kempston game."
