Honourable Draw Completes Pre-Season

Saturday 05 August 2017 - 8:49 pm | Added by: Ian Pluck to First Team, Club News | |

Aylesbury United completed their pre season programme with a hard fought draw against landlords Chesham United.  Despite being forced back in the opening stages of the match, it was the Ducks who took the lead after 10 minutes through Bruno Brito.  A loose back pass saw the Portuguese striker latch onto the ball and advance to the penalty area, where he curled a sublime finish past the home keeper to open the scoring.  The home side continued to have much of the possession as the half progressed, but resolute defending and some smart saves from Jack Sillitoe kept the clean sheet intact at half time.

However, after 65 minutes Chesham did manage to beat Sillitoe.  A loose clearance was picked up by midfielder Jon-Jo Bates 25 yards out and his low shot evaded the dive of the keeper to nestle in the bottom corner of the net.  The second half was a much more even affair, not helped by a raft of Chesham substitutions, but it was the Ducks who came closest to a winner with a shot by the impressive Harry Jones being cleared off the line as the game entered added on time.

A good final workout for the Ducks, resolute in defence and at times inventive in attack, setting the team up well for the first hiome league match of the season next Saturday against Beaconsfield Town.
