Latest Aylesbury United News
Seven Southern League Division One Central sides safely navigated through the FA Cup Preliminary Round fixtures of Friday and Saturday, with seven more facing replays, seven eliminated and one - Uxbridge - playing on Sunday.
Five sides suffered upsets at the hands of lower league opposition:
Biggest shock of the afternoon saw Bedfont & Feltham of the Combined Counties League Division 1 dump out Leighton Town 3-2. Mark Bunker scored after 67 minutes, and an own goal got the Reds a second, but by that point Craig Bicknell's side were 3-0 down and on their way to an early exit.
Marlow only netted a late consolation four minutes into stoppage time as they lost 2-1 at Hellenic League side Milton United, whilst Hanwell Town - riding high in the league following their promotion in the summer, were beaten by the same scoreline at home by their former Spartan South Midlands League rivals Biggleswade United.
A goal two minutes from time saw Egham Town knocked out 1-0 at Abingdon United - who had only taken one point from their Hellenic League campaign so far - as the Sarnies lost a third successive match by a 1-0 scoreline.
Going out to same level opponents were Royston Town and Potters Bar Town.
Garden Walk witnessed a rollercoaster game, with Brightlingsea Regent of Ryman League Division One North scoring in stoppage time to complete a 3-2 win over Royston, and their fellow league outfit Brentwood Town went through with a 1-0 win against Potters Bar.
The only all Division One Central clash saw Aylesbury FC twice come from behind to eliminate their town rivals Aylesbury United at the home of Leighton Town FC, with winger Aston Goss on target twice for the Moles.
AFC Hayes, Bedford Town, Daventry Town, St Ives Town, Bedworth United, North Greenford United and Northwood will all require replays having drawn against lower league opposition.
Former Aylesbury man Dean Powles scored to earn Holmer Green a 1-1 draw at AFC Hayes, with Daventry Town also drawing by the same scoreline at Ashford Town (Mx) - relegated from Division One Central last season - as did Bedford Town, who were denied a win by an 85th minute AFC Rushden & Diamonds goal in front of a crowd of 754 at the Dog & Duck Ground in Wellingborough.
Also drawing 1-1 were North Greenford United, at near neighbours Hanworth Villa, and Northwood, who were held 1-1 at home by newly promoted Spartan South Midlands Premier Division side Kings Langley at Northwood Park.
Ben Seymour-Shove scored a double as St Ives Town twice came from behind to draw 2-2 in Norfolk at Ryman League Division One North side Dereham Town while the last of the sides to draw were Bedworth United, who made the short trip to Coventry Sphinx and drew 0-0.
Also making safe passage were league leaders Kettering Town, who won 4-1 at Northamptonshire neighbours Cogenhoe United with Andy Hall scoring a hat-trick, and Chalfont St. Peter who returned from their long journey to Slimbridge with a 1-0 win courtesy of Alan Hedley's goal.
On Friday night Beaconsfield SYCOB and Barton Rovers both enjoyed big wins to secure progress.
Uxbridge travel to AFC Dunstable on Sunday.
Aylesbury United's FA Cup hopes were brought to a swift end for another season, as they twice threw away a lead before losing 3-2 to town neighbours Aylesbury FC.
Stacey Field netted twice - first giving United the lead after just four minutes, and then again midway through the second half.
It was ex-Duck Aston Goss who was the main tormentor against his former side though, as he equalised with a well taken goal on 25 minutes, before turning provider for Sean Sonner to level in the second half just three minutes after United had scored.
And the turnaround was complete, as the elation of the Ducks leading against the Moles for the first time in three meetings turned to despiar, as Goss found the net again just three minutes later.
There were still a good 15 minutes remaining, but Steve Bateman's FC side did a good job of containing the game, and having neutralised United's attacking threat were rarely troubled in the closing stages, and will go on to play Kettering Town in the 1st Qualifying Round.
Aylesbury United have added to their squad ahead of this weekend's FA Cup tie with the signing of Ryan Freshwater, from Winslow United.
Ryan is a highly rated Aylesbury-born 18-year old who can play in a range of defensive or midfield positions. He has been with Winslow for the past two seasons, and last year played over 40 games.
Winslow and the Ducks have an agreement in place this season which has already seen youngsters Daniel Higby and Liam Murphy lining up for the Elmfields Gate side, but Freshwater is the first to move in the other direction.
Welcome to the club Ryan!
The unpredictible start to the Southern League Division One Central season continued, as previous league leaders Hanwell Town were beaten 3-0 by local rivals North Greenford United, as two goals from David Manu condemned the reigning Spartan South Midlands Champions to their first defeat of the season.
As a result, Kettering Town took over the top of the table position, as substitute Alfie Taylor's goal eight minutes from time was enough to decide the Northamptonshire derby with Daventry Town 1-0.
Despite losing for the first time this season, Potters Bar Town remain in third spot - Northwood's Joakim Ehui scoring on the stroke of half time to gain the Woods a 1-0 home win over the Scholars.
Godalming Town moved up to fourth, with their fourth win of the season, also by the solitary goal as Jack Mazzone netted in a 1-0 win at Egham Town.
Bedfordshire rivals Bedford Town and Barton Rovers met at The Eyrie, with the visiting Rovers coming out on top of a six-goal encounter 4-2, coming from behind with Keshi Anderson twice on the scoresheet.
Three other local derbies all finished honours even, with Aylesbury United and Leighton Town goalless, David Kolodynski's 29th minute opener cancelled out by Alex Naughton six minutes later as Bedworth United and Rugby Town drew 1-1 in Warwickshire, and Chalfont St. Peter and Beaconsfield SYCOB also finishing 1-1 in South Bucks.
Also sharing a point each were Royston Town and St Ives Town, with the Crows throwing away a 2-0 half time advantage as Will Muzvimbiri scored twice in two minutes to bring the visitors level.
Lastly, mid table sides Marlow and Aylesbury FC met at Oak Tree Road, with the Moles unable to make it three wins in a row as Lee Barney's first two goals in a Marlow shirt saw them beaten 2-0 by the home side.
