Latest Aylesbury United News
The proverbial 'game of two halves' ended all square at Bell Close, as Aylesbury United and landlords Leighton Town drew 1-1.
After the ecstasy of a late winner at the weekend, tables were turned as the Ducks conceded an 87th minute equaliser - Gareth Chendlik hooking home to deservedly draw his side level.
Aylesbury had the better of a poor quality first half, and had taken the lead with the best moment of quality as Steve Hatch struck a belting 25-yard shot to score after just nine minutes.
The second period was an entirely different affair, and for a spell it was Leighton vs Jack Sillitoe as the Ducks stopper performed heroics to keep his side ahead.
Having weathered the storm, the sides were then evenly matched for the remainder, but plucky Leighton refused to give up and their late leveller allowed them to leave the pitch celebrating a vital point in their quest for survival.

The Board have announced that agreement has been reached for Aylesbury United to continue ground sharing at Leighton Town next season.

We are grateful to Leighton Town for their continued hospitality and the efforts that they have made to make us feel welcome at their home.

It would be be great to see as many people as possible from within the club come down and cheer the lads on. Many of the squad have been with the club (from the Aylesbury Town days) since they were knee high to a grasshopper. For many it will be their final ever game for the club as they go off to uni / adult football.
Please come along in your green and white gear and cheer the lads on!
