Latest Aylesbury United News

New Signing

Tuesday 17 September 2019 - 1:59 pm | Added by: Admin to Club News, First Team | | Used tags: , ,

Aylesbury United manager Ben Williams has strengthend his squad with the signing of winger David Manu.

He goes straight into the squad for tonight's trip to Bedford Town - ironically the club where he enjoyed arguably his most productive season having made 37 appearances for the Eagles in 2017/18.

Ducks supporters with longer memories might also remember David coming off the bench to score a stunning solo goal against us for North Greenford United back in 2014.

He has also played for Kings Langley, Hanwell Town and Uxbridge, amongst others, and started the current campaign with Beaconsfield Town.

Welcome to the club David!

Also signing registration forms is Sean Coles. Sean originally joined Aylesbury last summer but was hampered by an injury picked up in preseason and subsequently returned to Winslow United.

Currently working his way back to full fitness following another spell on the sidelines, the manager is hoping to involve him soon once his ankle is stronger.

 

Ducks Back to Winning Ways

The Ducks put the disappointment of last week's FA Cup exit behind them to take all 3 points against visitors Coleshill Town.

Ken Feyi opened the scoring in the 35th minute, just 10 minutes after having a penalty saved.

Loanee Sydney Ibie doubled the scoring with 15 minutes left to play to give the Ducks a comfortable win.

To round off a bad day for the visitors, captain Matt Jackson was shown a second yellow card in the last minute of normal time to secure himself an early bath.

Humbled at Home in the Cup

Sunday 08 September 2019 - 5:59 pm | Added by: Admin to First Team, Club News | | Used tags: ,

Aylesbury crashed out of the FA Cup with humbling 3-0 home defeat by Essex Senior League side Walthamstow.

On a poor afternoon all round, the Ducks gave away three penalties - two scored, one saved - and the scoreline could conceivably have been more than three.

The first spot kick came on just 8 minutes but it looked like United had been let off as Hopwood came to the rescue with a save.

But midway through the half the visitors did open the scoring with a follow up shot after Hopwood had saved well.

Just two minutes later and Hopwood was beaten again having felled a man in the box a different penalty taker found the net.

After the break penalty taker number three compounded Aylesbury's misery, and the Stags went on to have further chances with the Ducks seeing few opportunities to get back into the game.
