Aylesbury United's Reserves were unable to turn dominance into goals on Saturday and were held 1-1 by Thame United.

The Ducks flew out of the traps against Thame United reserves and took the lead inside ten minutes when Stuart Proctor ran through the Thame defence, and cleverly chipped the ball over the advancing keeper.

As in recent games United couldn't turn dominance into goals and went in at half-time just one nil up.

The second half started as the first half had ended, with the ducks in control and Thame relying on breakaways.

The tide then turned in Thame's favour halfway through the second half when Aylesbury lost the indudustrious Ben Simms, and livewire Aston Goss with injury. A reshuffle in the ducks ranks saw Gavin England, son of former first team coach Kevin, take over in goal, Jack Sillitoe move forward to centre half, and Skipper Anthony Kew into centre mid-field.

Thame snatched an equaliser, and although Aylesbury kept pressing for the winner it didn't come and they had to be content with a draw.
