Ducks Off The Mark In Pre-Season

Aylesbury United got their first win of the new pre-season campaign with a 2-0 victory at Mursley United.

Goals coming early and late in the game were enough to see off a spirited Mursley side, although the second half in particular was well controlled by the Ducks.

Tyrone Taylor got Aylesbury off to a great start when he made the most of some hesitant defending to beat the keeper to a through ball before expertly lofting it over the stranded custodian and into the net from the edge of the area.

The sides were then evenly matched for most of the first half, and it was Taylor who had the best chance for United but saw a shot blocked.

After the interval the divisional gap between the two clubs began to show and new defensive pairing of Mulholland and O'Farrell found themselves rarely troubled.

At the other end Aylesbury began to put some passes together and with some great football evident Castello, Pearce and Edgeworth all went close - the latter drawing a blinding save out of the keeper.

The second goal didn't arrive until the 82nd minute though, when Jason Castello's clever near-post corner was hooked in by Mickey O'Farrell to round off a well deserved win.

Aylesbury's preparations continue in earnest as they next face a trip to ADL outfit Bierton this coming Saturday.

Aylesbury team: Jack Sillitoe, Jamie O'Grady, Justin Gordon, Danny O'Farrell, John Mullholland, Danny Nicholls, Lea Coulter, Warren Garcia, Leon Gordon, Tyrone Taylor, Paul Edgeworth

Substitutes: Ian Pearce (on at half-time), Jason Castello (on at half-time), Will Smith (on after 40 minutes), Mickey O'Farrell (on after 57 mintues), Steve Miles (on after 65 mins)
