Replica Shirt Day/Voting Day

Tuesday 17 April 2018 - 8:53 pm | Added by: Ian Pluck to First Team, Club News | |

For the last home match of the season, Aylesbury United supporters wearing a replica shirt will be admitted to the ground for the price of a concession - just £6.

So dig out your old Aylesbury United shirts and take advantage of this offer.

Also happening this weekend is your chance to vote for your Supporters Player of the Year, with a few candidates vying for the honour.

Finally, the club will be asking supporters to vote for their chosen local charity to be selected as our charity partner for next season.  The chosen charity will benefit from being advertised in the match day programme next season, have their logo printed on the team's warm up tops and will be in attendance at selected matches next season to promote their charity and conduct a bucket collection.

The nominated charities are as follows:

Lindengatea registered charity that offers specialised gardening activities to help those with mental health needs in their continuing recovery.  Operating from a 5-acre site adjacent to the Wyevale Garden Centre in Wendover, Lindengate offers a wide range of gardening/horticulture activities so that users can spend time in a managed and calm and safe environment, either singly or in small groups, working towards recovery.

The Ducklings Trusta charity set up in 1984 to raise money for equipment and help improve the environment in the Maternity Units at Stoke Mandeville and Wycombe.  Fundraising continues to help make the units be the best birth environment they can be for families and staff.  All money raised means that The Ducklings Trust can build on their previous achievements and continue their efforts to support the Maternity Services.

Queens Park Art Centre - the hub, heart and home of the arts in Aylesbury Vale. It is the largest independent arts centre in the UK, and is a registered charity. Founded in 1980 the Centre’s mission statement is ‘arts for all’ – offering the local community access to creative and performing arts.

Carers Bucksan independent charity established in 2004 to support the wellbeing of unpaid, family carers in Buckinghamshire. We are part of the Carers Trust Network, which has Carers Centres around the UK. Our main office is in Aylesbury and we work closely with our sister charity Carers Milton Keynes.  We support carers of all ages and in different caring roles, including young carers, parents of children with a physical or learning disability, older carers, carers from the black and minority ethnic community and those looking after someone with a mental health condition, including depression.

Florence Nightingale Hospice - Run by Bucks NHS Healthcare Trust, and partly funded by Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity.  The Hospice provides a range of palliative and end-of-life care services to people in Buckinghamshire and parts of Oxfordshire and south Bedfordshire who have life-limiting illnesses such as chronic lung conditions, cancer and neurological conditions. It has an In-Patient Unit with twelve beds in the Hospice, and it supports patients in the home through the Nightingale 24/7 Care and Community Nursing Teams.  In addition, the Day Hospice offers physical, therapeutic and emotional support to people who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness, but who are able to live independently at home. The Hospice also runs the Lymphoedema Clinic and cares for and supports families and friends of patients, through the Bereavement Support Team and Florrie’s Children’s Team.

Five very worthy local charities, please select your favourite and support the club as we look to next season and offer something back to our local community.

Ducks Downed by Diamonds

Saturday 14 April 2018 - 5:55 pm | Added by: Admin to First Team, Club News | |

After a courageous performance, Aylesbury eventually succumbed to a 4-1 defeat at title hopefuls AFC Rushden & Diamonds.

The clearly tense hosts lifted the mood at Hayden Road when they scored with their first shot of the game - a stunning shot from 25-yards.

A second goal of equally impressive nature then gave Diamonds control before half time, though it was a little harsh on United.

Aylesbury were given hope courtesy of a bizarre own goal reducing the deficit, but any earlier nerves Rushden exhibited were swept away with two further home goals to complete their win.
