The Southern League Cup draw has been made, and has paired Aylesbury United with Bracknell Town, at home.

The match will be played on Tuesday 18th January at Buckingham Road, provided their is no replay from the previous Saturday's FA Trophy encounter at Forest Green Rovers.

Coincidentally, the Ducks also face Bracknell in the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup Quarter Final. A date has now been set for this match - which will be played at Larges Lane on Tuesday 8th February, 7.45pm kick-off.

Continuing the connection between the two sides, Aylesbury United Ladies Team also played the Robins in the Berks & Bucks Ladies Cup yesterday, where they were narrowly beaten 1-0. See the previous news story for more details on that.
 

Sunday Round-Up

Monday 29 November 2004 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to First Team, Club News | No comments |

There was a mixed set of results for Aylesbury United teams on Sunday.

The Sunday Youth Team recorded a 4-4 draw against defending South Bucks Youth League Champions Penn & Tylers Green. Goals from Stephen Lane (hat-trick) and Ben Mott, in potentially his last game for the club, as well as a penalty save from goalkeeper Corin Evans brought about the point.

The Ladies First Team were unlucky to go out of the Berks & Bucks Cup, narrowly defeated 1-0 by Bracknell Town, despite dominating much of the match.

Finally, the Ladies Reserve Team suffered their heaviest home defeat, 1-5 at the hands of Chinnor. Missing several players, the team battled well and the scoreline didn't reflect the nature of the match - Kayleigh Johnston scored United's goal.

The Nicholls Interview

Monday 29 November 2004 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | Three comments |

Alistair MacLaren caught up with Danny Nicholls after Saturday's exciting win over Staines Town:

What are your thoughts on Saturdays FA Trophy game at Staines Town, and the result?

First on behalf of myself, and the players, I would like to say a Big Thank You to the Fans for the very enthusiastic support that they gave to the team, they were singing for about 75 minutes of the match, and were always getting behind the team when it mattered.

We did create chances in the first half, but it was more a display of each team feeling each other out at that stage of the game, but after our half time talk the players became much more convinced in the second half and gave a superb performance.

Staines showed no real quality, apart from about ten minutes in the second half, a lot of just booting the ball up field. Although Steve Cordery knew about some of our players he never seemed to change the tactics for his team.

As far as I am concerned it was a superb result and I am now looking forward to Mondays draw.

Staines had a number of ex Aylesbury players in their team, the one that you would know is Danny Gordon, what did you think of his performance, and would he even get into your team now if he were to come back to Aylesbury?

I had a chat with Danny before the game and wished him all the best. Looking at his performance yesterday (Saturday) he would have a job to get a first choice place with the central defenders that we currently have, and of course Leon Barnett on loan.

Since we last spoke there has been more on the message board about Paul Lamb moving to Banbury. Kevin Brock has been quoted in their local paper as saying that he sure that he will sign for them. Is he going to stay at Aylesbury, or move to Banbury?

Paul Lamb did telephone me about this and confirmed that he will stay with us as he is going nowhere. He did speak to Kevin Brock about the move.

As Paul Lamb did not play on Saturday was that because of injury problems?

Yes, he has had a reoccurrence of the Calf Injury.

Another player missing from the Staines game was Neil Lazarus, would I be right in assuming that he was cup tied?

Yes, Kevin Wilson brought him on in the last minute of an FA Trophy game.

What actually happened to Gavin Jaggard as he was substituted with an injury?

It was an accidental injury when he tangled with one of the Staines central defenders, he fell and had his ankle trodden on. I thought it best to get him off the pitch as quick as possible so that he could get some treatment.

Leon Gutzmore also came off.

Leon was not suffering any injury problem, I simply thought that it was time to have a fresh pair of legs on the pitch. Danny Gray came on and scored a goal, Danny coming on as a sub seems to be a strong point as he does score goals in these games.

I noticed that you only had four subs on the bench, what was the reason for that?

Ian Brumwell was down to be on the bench but phoned me on Saturday morning as he was suffering from a Virus, he was very disappointed at not being involved.

How did you get on with Cords after the game?

Very very well, he was very polite, although he did play his team down a bit because of players missing from the team, I pointed out that we also had some players missing.

We spoke last time about more new players coming to the club?

Simon Goodham is still being considered, he did play for the reserves for sixty minutes, but was recovering from a virus, there is a delay before he can play for them again. I am also looking at two Conference players, one of them looks very good. I am confident of signing one, the other is a shot in the dark.

The average age of the team is coming down. Players are also wanting to come and play for Aylesbury which is good news.

Kevin England will be my assistant at present, a new Coach is being brought in for the reserves.
 

Staines Town 2 Aylesbury 3

Saturday 27 November 2004 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | One comment |

Subsitute Danny Gray crashed United through to the 3rd Round of the FA Trophy with an 87th minute winner, rounding off a pulsating 45 minutes of football.

After a lifeless first half, during which Staines had taken the lead, the Ducks hauled themselves back into the contest with two quick goals after the interval, through Edgeworth and a Gutzmore penalty.

Staines then levelled with their first effort of the second period though, but it was Gray who popped up to send the Ducks through.

The draw for the third round will be made on Monday, with the tie to be played Saturday 15th January. This does of course have repurcussions in that the trip to Tiverton Town will now be in midweek.

Full report from Staines is now online.

A Chat With Danny Nicholls

Tuesday 23 November 2004 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | One comment |

Danny Nicholls has given his first interview since being appointed as manager of Aylesbury United, talking to Alistair MacLaren:

What are your thoughts now you've been appointed?

Danny told me that he had been offered the managers job by Graham Read, and had accepted it. Danny also added that he was very proud to be the Manager of Aylesbury United. He has got a person in mind to assist him but is currently not available. He also said that following the Staines game December was going to be a very hard month in the league, four of the games would be against teams in the top five. He was confident that we could get the right result at Staines.

What are your thoughts about the Banbury game last Tuesday?

It was a good all-round performance in which we battered them 1-1, we were superb in the second half and should have won, could have been by five goals.

Did you think that the disallowed goal we scored was offside?

No it was not offside, and even some of their supporters said that it was not offside.

I thought that Histon, who we played on Saturday, were a quality team, the best that I have seen this season, what were your thoughts?

I don?t think that we will see many better teams this season, although I thought that we competed well for about 60 minuets but eventually their superior fitness told in the later stages of the game. They were a very experienced side not relying on youngsters, a number of their players had experience in the football league.

I noticed in the first half that Histon players were offside a few times but the flag not raised, what did you think of the officials?

The refere did seem a little biased towards Histon.

What did you think of your four new signings in Saturdays game, Gavin Jaggard, Liam Folds, Neil Lazarus, and loan signing Leon Barnett?

Gavin played up front alone but was colossal at times, Liam showed his quality, Neil is very skilful but lacking match fitness at present. I was very pleased with Leon Barnett?s performance, he is very highly rated at Luton who have given him a contract until 2007.

I have heard it said that there has been a 7 day approach from Banbury for Paul Lamb, is that correct?

Yes, but I'm pleased to say he'll be staying with Aylesbury United.

How is Garry Cook?s fitness after suffering the hamstring injury in his first game for us at Stotfold?

He has had a slight recurrence of the injury but is about 2 weeks away from being fit.

How are the other injured players, Leon Gutzmore, Kai Ridley, and Paul Lamb?

Leon is doing light training, Kai is resting, Paul has a calf injury and will be resting through the week but hopefully fit for Saturday?s game at Staines.

Following your recent three new signings, and a loan signing, is there any likelihood of any more new signings?

Not about to make any approaches at the moment as we have to stay within the budget, but I am always on the lookout for new players. We are looking at Simon Goodham at present, he has played in the reserves, was released by Bedford, but has recently suffered from a virus.

Aylesbury 1 Histon 3

Saturday 20 November 2004 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | Two comments |

The quality of Histon proved just too much for the Ducks to handle at Buckingham Road this afternoon, although Aylesbury can be proud of their efforts with a gutsy display.

Dean Cracknell gave the home side a shock early lead with a fourth minute screamer. The goal was cancelled out by a well worked Histon equaliser before the half-hour mark though.

The bumper crowd of 1006 witnessed a second-half of Histon playing some excellent football and scoring 2 worthy goals to make it 3-1 - and there were no complaints by Aylesbury. Beaten well by a far superior team.

Full report to follow.

Banbury United 1 Aylesbury United 1

Wednesday 17 November 2004 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | Three comments |

Aylesbury served up a treat of a second half display to come back from a goal down at the Spencer Stadium.

Colin Baker was the star, having been given his full debut by Danny Nicholls, repaid the manager's faith in him by crashing home the 51st minute equaliser.

This was after Banbury had opened the scoring in the first half through Howard Forinton.

The Ducks went on to dominate much of the second half, but couldn't find a way past the Puritan's stubborn defence. Banbury had their chances too though, and the game could have swung either way.

Sunday Round-Up

Monday 15 November 2004 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | One comment |

Our round-up of Sunday's action involving Aylesbury United teams returns after a week's absence.

The Sunday Youth team continued their 100% league record with a 3-2 win over Chalfont Saints. Goals from Steve Lane, Richar Melo Lucero and Gavin White sent the Ducks on their way to three points.

Aylesbury United Ladies put in an excellent display, but were beaten 2-1 thanks to a late goal from last season's runaway leaders, Reading Royals Reserves.

Aylesbury United Ladies Reserves lost their first league match in six weeks, going down 3-1 to Milton United. Kerry Naisbitt scored her twelth goal of the season, but it wasn't enough to salvage a result.

Grantham Town 1 Aylesbury United 2

Saturday 13 November 2004 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to First Team, Club News | One comment |

Debutant Gavin Jaggard's first half brace was enough the see of Grantham Town in an eventful game this afternoon.

Jaggard, signed from Hitchin earlier this week, took just 16 minutes to get on the scoresheet, firing home from a goalmouth scramble.

Grantham then saw their goalkeeper stretchered off, and a man dismissed, as their game went from bad to worse - with Jaggard adding another before half-time.

Their fightback was spirited, and they pulled a goal back within five minutes of the restart to set up an action packed remainder of the game.

There was to be no equaliser though, with Liam Folds superb in defence, combining well with his new team-mates to keep the Gingerbreads at bay.

Further Squad News

Danny Nicholls has tonight confirmed the departures of Jason Burnham and Stuart Smeathers. Alistair MacLaren got his full views:

"I have released two players, Jason Burnham and Stuart Smeathers. I have talked to Neil Champelovier and told him that his wage will be reduced, and he will no longer be my first choice for the team, he can stay on that basis but will probably look for another club. No other players have been released.

I have also had a talk with all of the squad, including Leon Gutzmore and Paul Lamb. It has been agreed that all players incomes will be reduced so that we can improve the quality of the squad.

Liam Folds and Gavin Jaggard both joined last nights training session and have given the squad quite a boost."
 

United For Aylesbury Day

Tuesday 09 November 2004 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | One comment |

Although the Club is disappointed with the recent attendances we appreciate the reasons behind this. We cannot do anything about the past but we can the future, therefore, we are focussing on the solution and not the problem. We cannot keep comparing the current position of the club with yesteryear - we are still a big club but very much underfinanced. We need to draw a line in the sand once and for all and concentrate on the future not the past.

The future starts here Saturday, November 20th in addressing the issues of support for Aylesbury?s premier football club. Now is your chance to make United for Aylesbury a special day.

From 12.00 midday, the main hall will be open offering family entertainment, face painting, disco etc. Admission to the game, against high flying opposition Histon, is free to all children under 16.

Aylesbury Vale District Council and local businesses are supporting this event. We need your support to create a carnival atmosphere and hopefully a record breaking attendance for a league game at Buckingham Road. The record currently stands at 2440 which was achieved against Worcester City in the Southern League Premier Division on 16 April 1988.
 

From The Dugout

Tuesday 09 November 2004 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | Four comments |

Alistair MacLaren has once again been chatting with caretaker manager Danny Nicholls:

What were your thoughts on yesterdays game against Solihull Borough in the FA Trophy?

I thought that we started very brightly, playing our new system 3-5-2. Overall very pleased with the result, it was a good cup game. Matt Hayward and Kai Ridley played very well. At halftime, although we were 1-0 down, we were confident that we would win the game.

I thought that Kai Ridley was very impressive on his return, did he boost the defence?

Yes definitely, it meant that we had three central defenders, which allowed us to play the new system, but it has to be said the whole team worked very hard.

Why was Stuart Smeathers substituted early in the game, was it an injury problem?

No, he has been out for a few games and seemed to be lacking energy and sharpness.

What did you think of the referee and his style of running?

Absolutely shocking. He was not fit and embarrassing at this level, the Solihull manager was not impressed either.

Were there any injury problems after the game on Saturday?

Paul Lamb was still having problems with his toe injury from the previous game but worked very hard, as did Greg Williams.

Is it true that Liam Folds has signed?

Yes he has signed for us and will be training on Tuesday evening with our squad. He?s a good central defender and midfield player. As far as the wages are concerned we will not be paying the sort of money that he has been earning, he wants to play for Aylesbury United, and for me.

The last time we spoke you confirmed that a seven day approach had been made for Gavin Jaggard from Hitchin, any further news?

Yes he has signed and will also be training on Tuesday evening. He is a good target player and is capable of holding the ball, which is what we need. In addition to playing for Hitchin he has played for Bedford and Leighton Town.

What was the outcome of the game that you were watching last Tuesday?

Nothing at this stage, the player that I went to watch came on a sub with 15 minuets left, then the game was abandoned because of fog.

Leon Gutzmore?s suspension has now been completed, is he still going to be playing for us?

Yes he has indicated that he wants to continue playing for us.

Among the players that were signed by the club from a lower level is Jack Rashid, he did play for Bedford before so does that mean that you were aware of his quality.

Yes, because he was playing for Bedford when I was also playing for them so I was aware of what he is capable of.

What are your thoughts on the draw for the FA Trophy, Staines Town away, taking into account the connections with Aylesbury United?

I?m very pleased with the draw because with all the added connections with both clubs makes it easy for me to motivate our players. It also makes for a great day for the fans, so long as we win!
 

Ducks Sign Two

Monday 08 November 2004 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to First Team, Club News | No comments |

Danny Nicholls has been busy strengthening the Aylesbury United squad with the signing of two players.

Defender Liam Folds has signed following his recent release from Kettering Town. Folds joined Kettering from Bedford at the start of the season, and had been an ever-present member of the Poppies side. He can also play in midfield.

Gavin Jaggard has also joined the club, making the switch from Hitchin Town. The striker is described as a 'strong target man who can hold the ball up'.

Both will be in the squad for Saturday's trip to Grantham Town, as well as the returning Leon Gutzmore. Also, look out for Danny Nicholls' interview online tomorrow morning.

Aylesbury 2 Solihull Borough 1

Saturday 06 November 2004 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | One comment |

Aylesbury United were forced to work hard for their victory over Midlands outfit Solihull Borough in the FA Trophy 1st Round at Buckingham Road this afternoon.

Two entirely different 45 minute spells saw the Ducks struggle in the first period, and fall behind to a well hit shot after just eighteen minutes.

The second half was a different story entirely though, and for twenty-five minutes the home side were sublime. Dean Cracknell turned the ball home early in the second period to equalise, and Greg Williams scored the winner.

The second round draw will be made on Monday, with the tie to be played on Saturday 27th November.

A full report is now available.

From The Dugout

Tuesday 02 November 2004 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | Five comments |

Danny Nicholls once more gives his thoughts following last week's narrow defeat to Cirencester:

What were your thoughts on Saturday?s performance against Cirencester?

In the first half we started very slowly, looked very nervous and rode our luck. Cirencester were not a good side and we looked very poor. In the second half we had a 10 minutes spell of madness, which allowed Cirencester to score their two goals, we looked as though we were asleep in the dressing room. It took us some time to adapt to the long ball game played by Cirencester, quite often they played past their midfield. We did play well for the last 20 minuets and Dean Powles did score a smashing goal for us.

The referee was shocking, the Cirencester numbers 2 and 8 should have been sent off for some of the things that they did. Cirencester could have been given 2 penalties in the first have.

I would like to add that I thought that the support was superb, the fans were getting behind the team.

How did we perform in the three areas of the pitch?

At the back we were not really good enough, Matty was ok, as a result of the injury to Paul Lamb Stuart Smeathers was back on the pitch at right back. We were too deep in midfield. Kofi Sintim and Dean Cracknell who played up front in each half of the game took quite a lot of knocks. Colin Baker, who came on for the second half, looked very lively.

How did you rate Kofi Sintim?s first start for Aylesbury United?

He found it very hard against such a physical side, he received quite a bad cut above his eye, butterfly stitches were needed, he also may have suffered slight concussion.

Paul Lamb went off injured, how serious is the injury, and will he be fit for the FA Trophy game at Solihull?

He went off with a suspected broken toe, it has since been confirmed that there is no break but it is badly bruised. His chances of playing on Saturday are 50/50.

Are there any other injury worries ahead of this Saturday?s game?

Kofi should be fit to play by Saturday, if selected. Jay Gould is fit, but needs some match play, so will play in the reserves this week. Kai Ridley is also now available, and Leon Gutzmore will soon be back in the squad.

What do you think of the quality of the teams in this league, some of the results so far seem very mixed?

I don?t think that there are many good teams in this league, but there are a number of very physical sides.

What are your feelings about the FA Trophy, do you think that we could get a good run as we did 2 years ago?

I like to think so, I will do my best. I really would love the club to have a good run in the FA Trophy as that is something that really puts the club on the map, mind you Aylesbury United are a very well known side anyway.

Is there any news about the manager situation at the club?

They are starting to interview people but I do not know who.

Have you any news about the two players that you were hoping to sign when we spoke last week? One of them was rumoured to be Gavin Jaggard.

I put a seven day approach on 2 players. One is not going any further, the other, who is Gavin Jaggard, will be spoken to tomorrow (Tuesday), that is the 7th day, another club are also speaking to him.

As I said before I am looking for some other players and will be watching a game tomorrow (Tuesday) night, so I will not be involved with the training session.

It has also been suggested that you have approached Josh Sozzo. Is there any truth in this?

No that is not correct. Although Josh is a good friend of mine I have made no approach for him.
