Reserves Draw at Chinnor

Tuesday 26 February 2008 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | One comment |

Aylesbury United's reserve team only had a point to show for a game that they totally dominated from start to finish against Chinnor reserves.

Chinnor took the lead in the first half following a rare foray into the Aylesbury half, they earned a corner, which eluded all the players massed in the box, and floated into the far corner.

In the second half, Aylesbury continued to press forward prompted by Ben Simms and the outstanding Frankie Ross, in the centre of midfield, and were rewarded for their efforts when they equalised from a free kick taken by Justin Gordon.

 

Aylesbury 1-0 Rushall Olympic

Saturday 23 February 2008 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | One comment |

James Faulkner's second half goal was enough to seperate the two teams in a drab league affair.

Both sides have been labelled 'promotion hopefuls' this season, but on the evidence of this match neither are genuinely living up to that billing.

Faulkner finally opened the scoring on the hour mark with a neat half-volleyed finish, and from that point the game did at least liven up slightly.

Both sides had chances in the remaining time, although Aylesbury looked more likely to add a second than Rushall did of equalising.

Monday 18 February 2008 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to First Team, Club News | No comments |

Aylesbury United Ladies got their first win of 2008 against Slough Reserves on Sunday.

Two goals from Sarah Gerrard and a strike from Lynn Pacey were enough to seal the win.

And had it not been for the form of the visiting keeper, the scoreline could have been even higher for Andy Foster's side.

Aylesbury 2-4 Leamington

Saturday 16 February 2008 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | One comment |

Aylesbury lost an entertaining game at The Meadow to title contenders Leamington this afternoon.

The Brakes had taken a two-goal lead inside half an hour, through two disappointing goals from Aylesbury's point of view, but Faulkner put them back in the game before the break.

Despite having their best spell of the match, the Ducks were unable to equalise and came undone again when the visitors re-established their lead with their first chance of the second half.

Faulkner scored from the spot to make the game a contest, but Aylesbury shot themselves in the foot again in conceding a penalty and it ended 4-2.

Aside from the nature of the first two goals, United didn't disgrace themselves and did enough to earn something out of the game, but it wasn't to be.

Aylesbury 2-0 Rothwell Town

Monday 11 February 2008 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to First Team, Club News | One comment |

Aylesbury returned to winning ways with a comfortable win over league strugglers Rothwell Town.

Andy Shed provided both goals in a first half which really should have seen him, and indeed the Ducks, add to their tally as numerous chances came and went.

The home side were rarely troubled, and more of a threat was the possibility of the pitch freezing and forcing an abandonment!

But as it was the game also marked the return from suspension of James Faulkner, but it was a low key comeback for the striker in an uneventful second half, but an important three points secured nonetheless.

Woodford United 1-1 Aylesbury

Saturday 09 February 2008 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | Two comments |

Andy Shed's late diving header rescued a deserved point for Aylesbury at struggling Woodford United.

The visitors had dominated the first half in terms of chances, but a lack of clinicism in front of goal cost them.

And Woodford took full advantage by taking the lead after the restart, ex-Duck Chris Jackson firing home at a corner.

The Ducks continued to struggle in front of goal, but they raised their game in the last minutes and equalised with ten remaining when Shed stooped to head home.

Despite a frantic end to the game in a surge of attacking pressure, Aylesbury had to make do with a point come full time.

Ducks Clinch Cattell Signing

Friday 08 February 2008 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | One comment |

Aylesbury United have moved quickly to fill the loss of Nick Leach by signing young Wycombe Wanderers defender Stuart Cattell.

Cattell was a first year professional at Adams Park having come through Wycombe's youth ranks, and was a regular for their reserve side.

He spent part of this season on-loan at Oxford City, before having his contract terminated by mutual consent this week and joining the Ducks.

Cattell is expected to go straight into the squad for tomorrow's game at Woodford United, and Monday's home game with Rothwell which also sees the return of his former Wycombe team-mate James Faulkner from suspension.

 

Sutton Coldfield 4-0 Aylesbury

Saturday 02 February 2008 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | Six comments |

Sutton Coldfield beat Aylesbury 4-0 this afternoon to inflict their biggest defeat of the season and become the first team to do the double over the Ducks.

The scoreline was rather harsh on United though, who matched the league's third placed side for most of the game, but were undone by the same moments of poor defending which have cost them in recent games.

A goal down in five minutes, their cause wasn't helped by Nick Leach limping out, but they battled away valiantly.

Even after an early second half goal they kept going, but good teams are hard to break down, and Sutton are a very good team, and there was no way through.

Two late goals flattered the hosts and gave the impression of an easy win, which in reality it wasn't, but it still illustrates the gap that exists between Aylesbury and the very best in the division.
