Aylesbury United News Story

Comfortable First Work Out

A strong first half performance which saw the Ducks score 6 times laid the foundation for a 7 - 0 victory over Spartan South Midlands team Colney Heath.

Played on neutral ground at the home of Tring Corinthians, a rather familiar looking Aylesbury United team started well against a youthful but exuberant Colney Heath team.  Most of the squad from last season were involved in the match, with just Jack Wood, Jake Bewley and Bruno Brito unavailable for the game.

Some delightful attacking play saw Ty Deacon score a hat trick, with Lea Coulter (2) and Reece Cameron also scoring in a rather one sided first half.  Colney were hard working and full of energy, but the greater experience of the Ducks team was a major factor.  

The second half saw both sides ring the changes, with youngsters Harry Jones and Jamie Jellis particularly impressive for the home side.  It was Jones who scored the only goal of the half, a fine finish from just outside the box.

So a good start to pre-season, we now look forward to visiting Lee Bircham's Bovingdon side on Tuesday evening, kick off at 6-30.
