Two goals in 3 minutes from Jeanmal Prosper and Jack Wood half way through the first half provided the platform for a convincing win over struggling Egham.  A stunning third goal from Greg Williams on the stroke of half time added gloss to a fine first half performance.

A continuation of the effective passing football in the second half was rewarded with a fourth goal by Ben Seaton with 10 minutes remaining to give the Ducks a convincing and very much deserved victory which moved the club 2 places up the league table to 15th, above today's visitors.

Club Statement

Friday 16 February 2018 - 09:32 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | | Used tags:

In light of Aylesbury FC's statement on their website on Sunday 11th February regarding a possible merger/groundshare, the board of Aylesbury United would like to provide the following clarification.

A few weeks ago, Aylesbury FC requested a meeting with Aylesbury United under the general heading of 'the two clubs working closer together'. At that stage no further detail was provided.

The meeting took place at The Holiday Inn on 18th January. As Aylesbury FC had called the meeting they were asked to detail what they saw as 'the two clubs working closer together'. Steve MacDonald for Aylesbury FC outlined a long term vision of the clubs working closely together for the good of Aylesbury Football. For the immediate future he proposed a groundshare between the two clubs at Haywood Way as a starting point for our new relationship.

Aylesbury United advised that we were currently in negotiations with Chesham United to continue ground sharing with them next season as we were happy with our current arrangement but agreed to consider a ground share agreement with Aylesbury FC in principle. It was advised that any proposal made by Aylesbury FC to us would have to be put to 21CD for their approval/comment.

It was advised by Aylesbury FC that they would need to call a meeting of their members to gain agreement to this proposal in order for us to move forward and it was agreed that they would do this and report back. It was further agreed that no communication with regard to this matter would be made by either club without prior communication and agreement.

Nothing further was heard by Aylesbury United until we became aware of the statement posted on Sunday. It was disappointing that this statement was made without any prior contact with us.

For clarification, the meeting and proposal was requested and offered by Aylesbury FC to us. We are, however, always happy to consider any proposal that would be in the best interests of our club.

We wish Aylesbury FC our best wishes for the future.


From The Dugout With Ben

It’s been a strange couple of weeks; losing Jack to a broken bone in his foot against Uxbridge, then matching Kempston in the middle of the pitch, but not being ruthless enough in both boxes. Unfortunately, their 2nd goal burst our bubble, as I thought up to that point that we might still nick a draw.

We had a good training session on the Thursday and then in my opinion had a completely one-sided game against Fleet in our favour. The emphasis was on attack, attack, attack, which we did but 30+ shots, 4 post rebounds and 5 one on ones doesn’t do the score line justice, and that is something we all know we need to improve on.

In Player news I am very pleased that goalkeeper Jack Hopwood has agreed to join us from Tring Athletic. Jack is another product of the Bucks Sport Academy (and actually now works for us as a teacher/coach). He has played 150+ games for Tring and was part of their team that reached the last 16 of the FA Vase this season. We do have a 7-day approach in for a winger/forward and when I get some news the club will release the information.

Finally, it was great to meet some supporters face to face, share my thoughts and answer your questions last Monday at the 21CD Quiz night. I’m not sure about the quiz placing’s though and am still considering asking for a recount!



French With The Winner at Fleet

Saturday 10 February 2018 - 5:57 pm | Added by: Admin to First Team, Club News | |

Sonny French's goal at the end of the first half secured a very welcome 3 points with a 1-0 win at Fleet Town.

Collecting the ball on the touchline, the midfielder cut across the box before burying a fine shot just inside the post.

It was in sharp contrast to United's finishing during the rest of the game.

Utterly dominant in the first period and at times during the second, chances came and went almost comically in nature.

Even with the hosts reduced to 10 men United were unable to find a second, and in the end made hard work of claiming the points, but all three was the result eventually.

Aylesbury United have strengthened their goalkeeping options with the signing of Tring Athletic stopper Jack Hopwood.

Another player well known to manager Ben Williams having graduated from his Bucks Sports Academy, Jack previously played for Chesham United Reserves before going on to make nearly 150 appearances for Tring.

This season he has made 34 appearances as part of the Tring side that reached the FA Vase 5th Round.

Welcome to the club Jack!
