Ducks Gunned Down by Norris Strike

Aylesbury United lost a second successive Saturday pre-season match 1-0 with defeat at ADL side Bierton.

In a match very similar to the previous week's loss at Winslow United, the home side went ahead in the first half - Luke Norris producing an excellent half-volleyed finish to beat Jack Sillitoe although in truth he should have been closed down much quicker.

Once again the Ducks created plenty of chances, with Edgeworth and Pearce going close in the first half.

After the break Bierton had their goalkeeper to thank as he made a number of good stops - rushing off his line several times to deny Leon Gordon and Edgeworth, whilst making a good save to tip over Mickey O'Farrell's fierce shot.

But United's best chance was spurned on 53 minutes when Danny Nicholls saw his spot kick saved by the keeper after he was brought down in the area.

All in all it was another good workout for United who on another day could have won the match, and the team now turn their attentions to a trip to Hellenic League side Kidlington.

Aylesbury team: Jack Sillitoe, Jamie O'Grady, Justin Gordon, Danny O'Farrell, John Mullholland, Warren Garcia, Joey Acheampong, Jason Castello, Ian Pearce, Leon Gordon, Paul Edgeworth
