First Half Blitz Delivers The Points

Wednesday 13 October 2021 - 07:22 am | Added by: luke to First Team, Club | | Used tags: , ,

Aylesbury bounced back from their cup disappointments with a comprehensive 5-1 win at lowly Wantage Town on Tuesday evening.

The Ducks stormed to a 4-0 lead after just 27 minutes courtesy of four different scorers in Lee Stobbs, a Jake Bewley penalty, Harry Jones and one from impressive debutant Rico Greco - signed on loan from Hayes & Yeading United.

From that point the much depleted squad understandably eased up, but had numerous good chances to add to their scoring before the hosts grabbed a consolation five minutes from time.

Having been repeatedly denied, Ty Deacon then finally added to the tally to become the fifth scorer of the night and ensure a handsome win for United and a more realistic look to the scoreline after a night of dominance.

Penalty Heartache For The Ducks

Saturday 09 October 2021 - 7:37 pm | Added by: Ian Pluck to Club, First Team | |

After two knockout cup defeats in a week, the Ducks looked to halt that losing run and progress in the FA Trophy this afternoon.  However despite dominating the first half, then went in a goal down after a Max Hercules penalty miss and a goal from Andy Somo.

The second half saw the Ducks equalise through Sonny French; however after dominating the first half, it was at times a defensive effort that was needed in the second half, with the visitors looking more likely to score a winner, Archie Davis keeping the scores level with a string of good saves.

With no further score in 90 minutes, the game went to a penalty shoot out, with the visitors coming out on top and advancing to the next round.

Ducks Knocked Out by Late Goal

Thursday 07 October 2021 - 08:08 am | Added by: luke to First Team, Club | | Used tags: , ,

A late winner from Usman Adeniji saw the Ducks knocked out of a second cup competition in a week as FC Romania won 2-1 in the Southern League Cup first round at The Meadow.

On balance of play it was a win the visitors just about deserved, though United's side - which featured a number of changes - created enough to feel they could have taken something from the match with the visiting goalkeeper and the woodwork keeping them at bay.

Tobi Coker - who recently lined up against Aylesbury for Waltham Abbey - opened the scoring on the half hour mark when he ran into the box and found the bottom corner.

Parity was restored just eight minutes later with probably the highlight of United's night when Ben Seaton started and finished a move with a well executed chip into the top corner.

After the break Aylesbury created little and with the game remaining level thoughts began to turn towards a penalty shootout, until Adeniji popped up to send his side through.

Cup Run Ends Despite Valiant Display

Saturday 02 October 2021 - 7:45 pm | Added by: Ian Pluck to Club, First Team | |

In a match played in appalling conditions, the Ducks bowed out of this year's FA Cup at the hands of Ebbsfleet United.  Despite being 2 steps lower on the non league ladder, Ben Williams' team defended heroically throughout, repelling wave after wave of attacks from the Fleet, with Archie Davis outstanding in the home goal, reaching half time with a clean sheet under their belt.

However that changed seven minutes after the break, when Harry Jones was caught in possession and punished by half time substitute Kieran Monlouis, who advanced towards the penalty area and fired a curling effort past the helpless Davis.  Fears of the floodgates opening were dispelled as the Ducks continued their valiant performance and came so close to an equaliser in the dying minutes, but a ball across the 6 yard box eluded a number of attackers before a relieved Fleet defence managed to clear their lines.

Perfect Weather for Ducks (and 3 Points)

Tuesday 28 September 2021 - 9:26 pm | Added by: luke to First Team, Club | | Used tags: , ,

In difficult, monsoon-like conditions, Aylesbury returned to winning ways in the league with a 2-0 home victory against Colney Heath at The Meadow.

The non-stop rain made any kind of football tough, but the Ducks got off to a flying start when Ty Deacon ran through to score after just eight minutes and maintain his goal-a-game average for the season.

United had the ball in the net twice more before the break, but both efforts - rebounds off the keeper followed in - were ruled out by the flag of the linesman.

The visitors had rarely threatened as an attacking force, but there was a growing sense that Aylesbury might regret not adding to their tally and the feeling wasn't eased when Jamie Jellis saw a second half penalty well saved.

But the Ducks did finally grab a second when Ezra Anthonio-Forde stepped off the bench to divert Jordan Jenkins' header from a corner kick into the net.

After that United understandably eased up with a big FA Cup tie with Ebbsfleet United on the horizon, and Archie Davis made the best save of the night in the latter stages to retain his clean sheet and it was 'job done' for the Ducks.

5* Ducks March On

Saturday 18 September 2021 - 8:29 pm | Added by: Ian Pluck to First Team, Club | |

An action packed FA Cup tie at the Meadow saw the Ducks move comfortably through to the 3rd Qualifying round.  After an even first half hour, the home side started to find their passing game and went in two goals to the good at half time, with goals from Ben Seaton and a second from the penalty spot by Jamie Jellis, after an incident that saw their Hellenic League opponents reduced to 10 men, with skipper Lynden Dovey dismissed for preventing a goal scoring opportunity.

With a numerical advantage on both the pitch and the scoreboard, the Ducks secured the game in the first 10 minutes of the second half, with further goals from Max Hercules, a second from Jellis and a fifth from Ty Deacon putting the game beyond the visitors.  However, a red card for substitute Kuda Sangoya for retaliating after being fouled took some of the gloss off the game, in what was becoming a feisty affair.  The visitors got a consolation goal in the 85th minute, but it was too little far too late as the Ducks comfortably progressed to the next round.
