Club Statement

Tuesday 28 March 2006 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | One comment |

The Directors would like to clarify some points ahead of the story in this week's Bucks Herald.

Neil Trebble is staying, although sadly Nicky Ironton and Andy Theodosiou have left the Club. This had nothing to do with 'cuts in the budget'.

All three gave their services free of charge ? no wages, no expenses ? and Neil will continue to do so. The Club is truly grateful for this, along with all the other support and help given by many others.

There has been a 'cut in the playing budget'. This was instigated by the board, not Bill Carroll. The savings from this season will be 'ring fenced' for next season.

The players are all committed and in agreement with the monies offered.

Tony Joyce will assist Neil untill the end of season.

Hopefully the players will agree to a 'Cash Pool' that will be divided amongst the team as opposed to 'individual' payments that vary from junior to senior status.

Neil, along with the board are still confident that we can escape relegation. One win, beat Northwood, then match Northwood's results would leave us 4th from bottom and going into the dreaded 'Relegation League' (We are currently one point a drift in this league).

A couple of the 1st team squad may decide to move on, but the majority have remained and are committed to the cause of fighting off relegation.

Ladies Teams Win Again

Monday 27 March 2006 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | One comment |

Both Aylesbury United Ladies sides recorded wins at the weekend.

The Senior team secured a hard fought 2-1 win at home to Holmer Green. Two goals from Nicola Hunt kept the Ducks' outside chance of promotion alive.

Meanwhile the under-16s moved into the quarter finals of the league cup by winning 2-0 at Brackley Town, courtesy of another two goals from Hunt.

Full reports can be found below.

Last Wednesday four of the Ladies under-16s side were selected to play for the Oxford Girls League Representative side against Oxford United School of Excellence.

Charlotte Jones, Lucy Ilic, Nicola Hunt and Kerry Naisbitt all played for the first half, putting in good performances, with Hunt and Naisbitt giving their side a 2-0 half-time advantage. The league side eventually won 3-2.

Aylesbury 0 Gloucester City 1

Saturday 25 March 2006 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to First Team, Club News | No comments |

Aylesbury were rather unfortunate not to secure at least a point against fellow strugglers Gloucester City, after a wondergoal from Dave Wilkinson won the match for the visitors.

The Ducks had battled well all afternoon, and but for a bit more quality in front of goal could conceivably have won the game.

City had other ideas though, and with the game entering the last ten minutes with no breakthrough, Wilkinson popped up to crash home a superb half-volley.

Still Aylesbury pushed forward, but were ultimately once again unable to find the back of the net.

Full report now available.

Aylesbury 1 Salisbury City 3

Tuesday 21 March 2006 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to First Team, Club News | One comment |

There were to be no upsets at Buckingham Road this evening, as Salisbury City put three past Aylesbury for the third time this season in a comprehensive win.

The Ducks were second best to the likely league champions throughout, and the visitors took the lead after twenty minutes through Paul Sale.

Further goals after the interval from Alexander Haddow and Sale rounded off Salisbury's evening, before Richard Pringle scored a scrappy late goal for Aylesbury, his first for the club.

Excellent Weekend For Ladies

Monday 20 March 2006 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | Five comments |

An excellent weekend for Aylesbury United Ladies saw the Under 16s win the league title, and the first team draw at league leaders Oxford United Reserves.

On Saturday morning the ladies section won their first ever honours with a 5-0 win over local rivals Chinnor, to secure the title.

The Ducks maintained their 100% league record with goals from Jess Foster, another hat-trick from top scorer Nicola Hunt, and a strike from Lucy Ilic.

Meanwhile on Sunday the first team earned a creditible 0-0 draw at league leaders Oxford United Reserves. Both sides had chances in an end to end encounter, but it finished even to keep the Ducks' promotion dream very much alive.

Yate Town 3 Aylesbury 0

Saturday 18 March 2006 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to First Team, Club News | No comments |

Aylesbury United, with 1 away win all season, came up against Yate Town who have the league's best home record, and duly lost 3-0.

What may appear a comfortable win for the home side was anything but though, and the 0-2 half-time scoreline was harsh on the Ducks who had been the better side for most of the first half.

Inability to take their chances cost United though, with Yate adding a third in the second half to reverse the scoreline of when the teams met at Buckingham Road back in August.

Full report and pictures now available.

Aylesbury 2 Sandridge Rovers 1

Tuesday 14 March 2006 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | One comment |

The Ducks had to come from behind to beat Sandridge Rovers in their midweek friendly at Buckingham Road this evening.

All three goals came from headers, Sandridge's forward giving his side an early lead by nodding home a free-kick.

Aylesbury responded with an equaliser less than ten minutes later, Rob Gould heading Nick Jackson's corner in.

The home team featured two trialists - Marting Young and the well known Nando Perna - and the latter was involved in the winning goal. Perna passed wide to David Barratt, and his cross was superbly headed home by Mark Bridge at the far post.

Aylesbury Teams:

First half: Reece Kirk, Jamie O'Grady, Justin Gordon, Rob Gould, Kyle Kilmartin, Dean Powles, Matt Butler, Martin Young, Kieron Deane, Leon Gutzmore, Nick Jackson.

Second half: Jack Rashid, Damon Ming, Matt Hayward, Justin Gordon (Nando Perna), Martin Skipp, Paul Kelly, David Barratt, Nick Jackson (Bilal Hassan), Aston Goss, Richard Pringle, Mark Bridge

Aylesbury 0 Chesham United 1

Saturday 11 March 2006 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to First Team, Club News | No comments |

United For Aylesbury Day ended in bitter disappointment for the Ducks, as they were beaten by Chesham for the first time in five years.

An audacious overhead kick from defender Nathan Bowde-Haase in the first half was enough to seperate the two sides, in a dire match.

Aylesbury rarely troubled Chesham's goal, to the dismay of most of the largest Buckingham Road crowd of the season and it was the Generals who claimed all three points.

This Saturday is of course the second United For Aylesbury Day, following on from the last season's successful campaign which attracted a crowd over 1000 to Buckingham Road for the match against Histon.

You can read our usual match preview, Chesham United provide this week's opposition as the Ducks look for back to back wins, by clicking the link below.

There will also be a selection of inflatables provided by McDonalds at the stadium, the pictures below illustrate what these will look like. Meanwhile ?1 will get you 3 tries to hit a target with a football in the Shoot4Goal arena for real cash prizes!

Aylesbury 2 Banbury United 0

Saturday 04 March 2006 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to First Team, Club News | One comment |

Aylesbury produced an excellent display to beat play-off hopefuls Banbury United 2-0 and record a long overdue win.

Both the goals were a joy to watch, as Kieron Deane and Aston Goss netted in the first half to give the Ducks what proved to be an unassailable lead.

Try as they might Banbury just couldn't get into the game, Aylesbury's defence looking solid throughout to keep a deserved clean sheet.
