Tuesday 29 June 2010 - 10:38 pm | Added by: Admin to First Team, Club News | No comments |

Aylesbury United got their first training session ahead of the new season under their belts this evening.

With a healthy turnout of players featuring a mixture of last season's squad as well as new faces, the session was overseen by manager Tony Joyce and new coach Glyn Creaser with Gary Hawksworth on holiday.

Creaser got proceedings underway with a tough looking running programme, before the players moved on to various exercises with the ball.

The players will continue to train twice a week now as the build up continues before Aylesbury's first pre-season friendly at Winslow United in ten days time 10th July - 11am).


Goal-Den Goal Returns For 2010

Tuesday 22 June 2010 - 10:25 am | Added by: Admin to First Team, Club News | One comment |

After the phenomenal success of the inaugural 'Goal-Den Goal' Competition last season, we will be running it again this year.

The format is simple:

We are looking to ?sell? every minute of every league game throughout the season. The first goal in any AUFC 1st team league game, scored by United or their opponents, will result in a payout of £22.50 per game to the winning sponsor.

What we are looking for:

In order to run this, we are looking for 91 sponsors (0-0 draw is also included!). To sponsor a minute of the game costs £25 for the season. This will include all 44 SSML fixtures, AND the first 6 cup matches in all competitions. In short, each entry will have 50 chances of winning £22.50.

Once we have 91 confirmed entries, minutes will be allocated via a draw and each entry will be notified as to their minute for the season.

To join in the fun and enter the competition, simply download the form click here and return to the address shown.

Many thanks in advance for supporting your local club.

Aylesbury United are to donate all the money raised from the recently held 'Grand Auction' to Florence Nightingale Hospice.

Aylesbury United have made their first major summer signing with the appointment of Wycombe Wanderers legend Glyn Creaser as first team coach.

During that time he lead his side to promotion to the Football League, and two FA Trophy victories before returning to Wembley for a third time and winning playoff promotion to the old Division 2.

After finally leaving Wycombe in 1995, Glyn went on to play for Dagenham & Redbridge and Bedford Town.
