Latest Aylesbury United News
A late, late goal knocked Aylesbury United out of the FA Cup as they were beaten 1-0 at home by Biggleswade United.
With the tie looked set to be heading for a replay, Charlie Black's cool finish caused something of a cup upset and eliminated United at the Preliminary Round stage for the third season in a row.
An entertaining contest was evenly matched in the first half, both sides playing good passing football without the quality end product required.
It was much the same story after the break as Aylesbury failed to take their chances, and even after the goal arrived five minutes from the end the Ducks still hit the bar and called the visiting goalkeeper to make a save. Once again, it wasn't to be Aylesbury's year.
Aylesbury United have been handed a tough draw in the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup 1st Round.
The Ducks will travel to Vanarama National League South side Maidenhead United.
No date has yet been arranged, but the tie must be played before 7th October.
The last meeting between the two sides was the final of the same competition, in May 2015, when Maidenhead won comfortably, but Aylesbury haven't visited York Road in some 12-years when Ryan Wiffin and Alvin Bubb were on target on a final day of the season 2-4 defeat.
In order to mark ten years of Aylesbury United FC playing outside Aylesbury and to help raise awareness of this, 21CD are organising a sponsored walk from our old ground on Buckingham Road to the ASM Stadium, Thame. This will take place on 21st August before the FA Cup game with Biggleswade United.
It's not too late to join us!!
A route has been scoped using public footpaths and will be approximately 12 miles in total. The walk is relatively flat and other than distance should not be too strenuous. Although the event is open to all supporters of the club aged 16 and above there is a limit to the number of people who can take part to keep it manageable.
All sponsorship money raised will be given to Pancreatic Cancer UK in honour of former club secretary and stalwart Tony Graham.
If you would like to take part in the walk and gain sponsorship please register here. Further details including sponsorship information will be provided by email to those who register.
However, if you are unable to take part in the walk and still wish to donate to the excellent cause, please visit the Just Giving page: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/sponsored-duck-walk-to-thame
Aylesbury continued their strong start to the season by coming from behind to beat Fleet Town 3-1.
Despite a dominant start, the visitors scored a good goal through Ben White to take a 9th minute lead.
The Ducks weren't to be deterred and kept playing decent football, eventually levelling through Jordon Frederick six minutes before the break.
Ellis Hercules headed home the second before Reece Cameron put the result beyond doubt with a penalty.
But there was controversy as Fleet felt they should have had a apot kick of their own and that the ball has crossed the line during a scramble, both with the scoreline 2-1.
Both times the officials were unmoved leaving the Ducks to claim their third win from the first four games.
A first half header from Jack Wood gave the Ducks a 1-0 win at Petersfield Town.
In a match the Ducks controlled, the margin of victory could have been greater with Taylor Collins spurning a one-on-one and hitting the bar in the second half, and a number of corner kicks also proving fruitless.
United's missing killer touch gave the hosts hope, and they threatened for a brief spell but ultimately Zaki Oualah didn't have a save to make.
It means Aylesbury have a healthy return of 6 points from their first 9 going into Wednesday's home clash with Fleet Town.
