Aylesbury captain Jack Wood marked his 400th appearance for the club with a goal, but it wasn't enough to change the result as the Ducks went down to a 2-1 home defeat to Buckinghamshire neighbours Chalfont St. Peter.

Despite the Saints still having an outside chance of playoff qualification, it was a typically uninspiring end of season affair that saw Robbie Hastings give Chalfont an 18th minute lead with a classic counter-attacking goal.

The Ducks improved in the second period, but conceded a disappointing second when Alan Hedley headed home, United having given the ball away cheaply in midfield.

Wood's goal gave some late hope when he headed in from close range from substitute Jeanmal Prosper's header across goal, but it was too little too late as Aylesbury slumped to defeat.
