Ducks Fail to Overcome Malvern in Frustrating Draw

Saturday 31 January 2009 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | Two comments |

Malvern Town 1-1 Ducks The Ducks returned from basement club Malvern with only a point to their name after a disappointing afternoon.

Things had got off to a promising start when Chris Marsh gave United a tenth minute lead from the penalty spot.

But the advantage lasted just six minutes before Malvern were gifted an equaliser, and from that point on the Ducks struggled. In most areas of the pitch the team were well below par.

Having taken just nine points all season, Malvern were definitely there to be beaten, but United's play lacked any real cohesian.

There were some positives from Aylesbury's point of view with the return from injury of Carl Kavanagh and Craig Henney, but it was a case of two points dropped as away day inconsistensy reared its' ugly head once again.

Full report is now available via the fixtures page.

To help promote the club's policy of free entry for children, Aylesbury United are offering a free mascot package to one lucky reader and their family.

Deserved Away Win for Ducks

Saturday 17 January 2009 - 12:00 am | Added by: Admin to First Team, Club News | No comments |

Stourport Swifts 1-2 Ducks Aylesbury made a storming return to action with a well deserved win at Stourport Swifts.

Apart from a twenty minute spell at the start of the second half, the Ducks controlled the game, and, in the first half particularly, created chance after chance but had no luck in front of goal.

That sticky period after the break saw Stourport take the lead with a rare attack, but United dug deep and equalised through Matt Butler with over twenty minutes remaining.

Aylesbury kept pushing for the win and eventually a second goal arrived six minutes from time, Glen Hawkins netting his fifteenth of the season.

Full report from Walshes Meadow is now available via the fixtures page.

 

Youth Held at Burnham

Burnham 2-2 Ducks Youth Aylesbury's U18 side returned to action with a battling 2-2 draw at Burnham.

The result was a creditible one as the United side was hit by unavailability and illness, the starting line up subsequently containing nine players under 17 and six being under 16.

The Ducks came from behind to lead the match thanks to goals from Sam Ward and Joe Pickwick, but the hosts equalised to take a share of the points.
