Aylesbury United finished the season in disappointing style, losing a 2 goal lead for the second consecutive away match.
A spectacular strike from Sonny French on the half hour gave the Ducks the half time lead, which was doubled by Bruno Brito just before the hour. However, as at Royston 2 weeks ago, the hosts hit back, scoring 3 quick goals to secure their victory.
A Legendary Charity Football Match between Wycombe Wanderers and Aylesbury United is to take place, raising money for Ollie's Fund.
The game will be hosted by Thame United at the ASM Stadium, on Sunday 21st May - gates open at 11am with kick off at 12noon. Entry is £7.50 for adults and £2.50 for children.
As well as the entertainment of seeing playing icons (to be confirmed, but including Aylesbury's leading goalscorer/appearance holder Cliff Hercules), there will be a bouncy castle, face painting and a cake sale.
Ollie's Fund was established to help the 12 year old cancer victim funding the £440,000 for surgery after the devastating news he has relapsed following initial surgery. You can learn more about Ollie's Fund at www.olliesfund.com.
A great family fun day out, please come along, have a great day out, and support Ollie too!
A bizarre second half winner gave Aylesbury a 2-1 comeback win to end their two-year tenure at The ASM Stadium on a high and complete a season's hat-trick of wins over Kidlington.
The visitors deservedly lead at half time after a promising start to the half gave way to a disjointed Ducks performance.
There was better to come after the break as the introduction of Tre Mitford sparked a new attacking threat, and from his shot Sonny French netted the rebound to equalise.
Then came the game's comedy moment, when Ryan Kinnane's hoist downfield 70-yards from goal was seemingly dealt with by Sam Warrell, only for the keeper to stumble backwards and fall into his own net with the ball.
Kidlington were unable to raise their game again to find a way through a well drilled Ducks defence, and Aylesbury were able to hold on for their 15th win on Thame's ground.
Champions Royston Town overturned Aylesbury's two-goal half time lead to eventually win 5-2 at Garden Walk.
Receiving the Division One Central trophy after the game, Royston's party looked like being spoiled when two Lea Coulter goals made it 2-0 Aylesbury at the break.
But a crazy 14-minute spell saw the Crows come back to 4-2 - inclusing three strikes in the space of just 3 minutes, 39 seconds.
Town then went on to miss a penalty before scoring a late fifth to ultimately run out resounding winners.
Saturday's match at Royston has been designated "Champions Day", where amongst the celebrations for them winning the League, they will be presented with the Trophy after the match.
Admission for the match is "Pay What You Want" for all supporters.
