To assist with fund raising ahead of the new season, 21CD invites all supporters of the club to join us for an afternoon of fun on Sunday 12th July from 2-30pm. Cost of the event will be £5 per head and will include a barbecue. Due to there being no bar available on the day, guests are invited to bring their own liquid refreshment.
Tickets will be available from Brian Metcalfe or Ian Pluck at any pre-season friendly before the event, or to secure your ticket and help us with catering, please email email@example.com stating how many tickets you wish to buy.
Your support is much appreciated and will make a difference to the club as we look ahead to what is shaping up to be an exciting new season.
The festival is the largest in the southern counties and attracts over 300 teams from all over the region and will include teams playing in the following age groups:
Saturday 13th June
Boys: Under 7, Under 9, Under 11, Under 13, Under 15, Under 18

Planning and organising the festival is a time consuming and labour intensive task. The football club would welcome any volunteers who can spend some time over the weekend assisting in the organisation. Tasks include preparation for the festival on Friday 12th June at the rugby club, as well as car park stewards and marshals, BBQ helpers and litter pickers on both Saturday and Sunday. Helpers will be required from 9 am on Friday and 7 am on Saturday and Sunday, although any help, for however long would be much appreciated.
All profit from the event goes towards sustaining the junior section of the football club. If you can offer any help at all, even a couple of hours, please contact Stuart Clark on 07951921163 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Aylesbury United Walking Football Club progressed to the Regional Stages of the Walking Football United National tournament last Monday night (11th May), with an emphatic 8-0 win over Milton Keynes
Carrying a 5-2 lead from the first leg, it was a possibility that the side would park the bus. An early goal, and a 4-0 lead at half time dispelled that.
What followed was a disciplined performance watched & enjoyed by Aylesbury United Chairman, Graham Read, plus other board members & club officials Ken Turnbull, Martyn Shaw, Ron Schmidt & Stuart Clark.
Goals came from Richard Dean (3), Peter Chilcott (3), Neil Butler & Dougie Foster.
The draw for the Regional stage takes place at the end of June, where AUWFC are confident of progressing.

The club’s End of Season Presentation Evening was held on Friday 8th May at the Rivet’s Social Club. Hosted by the Chairman of 21CD Ron Syratt, the annual awards evening was enjoyed by a large audience. Ron summarised the season, noting that it was one of consolidation, and thanked Leighton Town for being such good hosts to the club during our period playing there. He then moved on to look ahead to next season and the move to Thame, which promises to be a good move for the club with better facilities on and off the pitch.
Andy Foster and Stuart Clarke then gave a brief review of the successes that the Ladies and Youth sections of the club had achieved during the season, highlighting the excellent large numbers that were representing the club in green and white, and reinforcing the inclusive nature of the club, which is very encouraging going forward.
The first award of the evening was the Supporters Player of the Year, presented by Erika Robinson. A close vote saw Jack Wood take the Trophy.

Next, the Player’s Player of the Year was awarded to Shane Wood. Finally, the Management Player of the Year was awarded to skipper Jack Wood.

Club Vice Chairman Ken Turnbull then presented the Clubman of the Year Award. This year it went to Greg Williams for his efforts on the pitch which has seen him exceed 300 appearances for the club, and also for his sponsorship of the club through his company Liberty Steel.
In addition to the Clubman Trophy, Greg was also presented with a framed first team shirt as thanks for his company’s sponsorship during last season.

To begin with, the management team of Tony Joyce, Glyn Creaser and Gary Hawksworth and kitman Ron Schmidt were all presented with a bottle of alcoholic refreshment for their efforts throughout the season.
Next up was the “I Can’t Be Bothered” award, which went to the appropriately unbothered Stacey Field.
The “Stereotypical Looking Foreigner” was awarded to Jordan Frederick
Finally, the “I’m Available Gaffer” award was won by Jason Blackett.
