To mark ten years of Aylesbury United FC playing outside Aylesbury, 21st Century Ducks (Aylesbury United FC Supporters Trust) organised a sponsored walk from our old derelict ground on Buckingham Road to the ASM Stadium Thame, their current home, on 21st August before their FA Cup Preliminary Round game.

A team of nine supporters did a fantastic job walking a 12 mile cross country route in 3 hours and 56 minutes, which was excellent for a mixed group on a cross country course which included encountering two fields of anxious cows!

Although donations are still being received a fantastic current total of £1371.25 has been raised for Pancreatic Cancer UK in honour of former club secretary and stalwart Tony Graham.

Supporters are already planning the next walk, with Petersfield away in 2017/18 firmly in mind!

Donations can still be made if you want to support the cause, please visit the JustGiving page.
