Ducks Go Through in Dramatic Game

Aylesbury advanced to the quarter finals of the Berks & Bucks Trophy by winning a 9-goal thriller 6-3 at Sandhurst Town.

A match of talking points aplenty saw the Ducks lead after just 4 minutes when Ben Hammond smashed home a top corner shot.

The lead was doubled through Louis Austin's first goal for the club with half time approaching and it looked like being a comfortable night for the Ducks.

But some complacency set in and casual defending allowed the hosts to net twice in quick succession to draw level before the interval.

After the break Sandhurst edged in front on 58 minutes, but their lead only lasted 2 minutes as Hammond scored again - this time from the penalty spot - to make it 3-3.

United's depleted squad had struggled with several players carrying niggly injuries, but they dug deep to find an eventual winner.

Bircham delivered a peach of a free-kick and Mulholland rose to guide the ball home.

There was still time for two stoppage time goals to give the scoreline a more flattering look - as Austin ran riot late on, Ben Baines and Austin the men on the scoresheet.

A seventh straight win for Aylesbury then, and manager Tony Joyce will be thankful that his walking wounded have the extra day to recover with United's next match on Sunday in the FA Vase.

Full match report now available.
