Aylesbury crashed out of the FA Cup with humbling 3-0 home defeat by Essex Senior League side Walthamstow.

On a poor afternoon all round, the Ducks gave away three penalties - two scored, one saved - and the scoreline could conceivably have been more than three.

The first spot kick came on just 8 minutes but it looked like United had been let off as Hopwood came to the rescue with a save.

But midway through the half the visitors did open the scoring with a follow up shot after Hopwood had saved well.

Just two minutes later and Hopwood was beaten again having felled a man in the box a different penalty taker found the net.

After the break penalty taker number three compounded Aylesbury's misery, and the Stags went on to have further chances with the Ducks seeing few opportunities to get back into the game.
