Since our last home game, first team manager Tony Joyce has offered his resignation which has been accepted by the club. 

The following is a statement from Tony:
“After Saturday’s game and speaking to directors I offered my resignation.
Speaking to the Chairman on Sunday evening I would like to stand by that decision and with regret move on from my position as Aylesbury United first team manager.
I have had six years in charge and we have had some great times including promotions and cup finals.
This season unfortunately, with the move to Thame, things have not worked out as expected at this stage of the season.
I have great admiration for the club and feel now for myself and the football club it is time for change.
I would like to thank everyone involved with the club from the players, my backroom staff, club officials and supporters for the time and support we had. It is a fantastic football club and I have made great friends and had some fantastic times. Football is like everything else in this world and you have to keep moving on.
I wish the club every success in the future and once again would like to thank the club for the last six years”
The club would like to thank Tony for his hard work over the past six years. He took over the team during a very difficult time and achieved promotion back to the Southern League as well as reaching two cup finals. He was also the club's second longest serving manager having amassed more than 300 games in the dugout.
We wish him every success in his future football career and are sure we will be meeting competitively at some point in the future.

Glyn Creaser has kindly agreed to take over management duties on an interim basis while the club considers a permanent appointment.

Swifts Swoop to take the Spoils

After a goalless first half, Heybridge rather controversionally took the lead after Jack Wood appeared to be pushed over by Swifts striker Joshua Fagbohun, who then broke into the box and scored past Tokarczyk.  An equaliser came soon after through Lee Grace, but it was the Swifts who scored the winner 15 minutes from time through Billy Hunt.

Despite having the muscular Fagbohun sent off for kicking Jack Wood in the head as he lay on the ground, the Swifts held on to progress to the next round, rounding off another disappointing afternoon at the Windmill Stadium for the Ducks.

Ducks Held by Late Leveller

A late equaliser denied the Ducks all three points in an entertaining game that had seen Aylesbury twice take the lead, before eventually drawing 2-2 at Barton Rovers for the second season running.

A positive start was rewarded with Nathan Tshikuna's sixth minute opener, his first for the club, only for Rovers to level from the penalty spot six minutes later.

An end to end first half was concluded by Alex Collard re-establishing United's lead, and the Ducks were holding firm before an unsavoury incident on the terraces lead to a short delay in proceedings whilst the perpetrator was removed.

Whether that played a part in distracting Aylesbury is up for debate, but Barton seemed the more focussed side in the closing stages and duly drew level with 90 minutes on the clock to make the final score 2-2.
