Latest Aylesbury United News
Aylesbury United are delighted to announce that we are to return to playing at The Meadow, Amy Lane, Chesham, the home of Chesham United FC, for season 2017/18 with an option for 2018/19. The club believes this is a positive move for both the players and especially the supporters.
The Club would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody at Meadow View Park, Thame for their support and help over the past two seasons.
The ground staff there (including the departed Frank Thompson) have been very helpful and have clearly done everything in their power to ensure our games went ahead with all the facilities in good order.
However, we now look forward to renewing our partnership with Chesham for next season.
The Annual End of Season Presentation Evening will be held on Friday 5th May at the Rivet Sports & Social Club, Whitehead Way, Aylesbury, 7-30 for 8-00 sit down.
Following the success of last year’s event, the evening will once again consist of a fish and chip supper, followed by the 1st Team End of Season awards and raffle.
Anyone who is able to donate a prize for the raffle, please contact a member of the 21CD committee at any match.
Cost is just £15-00 per person, payable to Brian Metcalfe before any match between now and the end of the season.
The meal will be a choice of Fish and Chips, Chicken and Chips and Sausage and Chips. If there is anyone who has dietary needs which mean those choices are unsuitable, please let us know and we will try to source something more suitable.
Your choice of food is needed when you purchase your ticket. Tickets can be obtained at any match between now and the end of the season. For catering requirements, all tickets need to be booked by the last match of the season at Bedford on Sat 22ndApril.
Any questions, please contact Ian Pluck at email@example.com or see me at any match.
On a blustery day, it was the Tangerines of Ashford who handled the conditions best and went home with all 3 points. Playing with the advantage of the strong wind, an early Lea Coulter goal gave the Ducks an early lead. However, this was quickly cancelled out by top scorer Mark Bitmead.
The second half saw the visitors take a stranglehold on the game and scored their winner 9 minutes from time to condemn the Ducks to a 10th home defeat of the season.
Aylesbury's hopes of a League Cup final appearance were dashed by a 2-0 defeat at St Ives Town.
Two well taken first half Josh Dawkin goals were the difference between the sides.
A spirited Aylesbury gave a good account of themselves, twice hitting the woodwork and forcing the home keeper into a number of saves.
Ultimately though, the Premier Division side had enough to keep the Ducks at bay, and we wish them well in the final against Hayes & Yeading.
A Legendary Charity Football Match between Wycombe Wanderers and Aylesbury United is to take place, raising money for Ollie's Fund.
