Aylesbury's midweek friendly saw them confidently put six goals past Spartan South Midlands League side Dunstable Town.

New signing David Manu netted a trebble, whilst Melvy N'Somi, Harry Jones and Sonny French were also on the scoresheet.

The Ducks started in rampant fashion and could conceivably have been 4 or 5 up in the first twenty minutes.

Manu scored after just three minutes when he followed up after Jones's shot was saved.

It was two six minutes later after more good work by Jones resulted in a saved shot and N'Somi was there to score at the second attempt.

Proceedings mostly belonged to the hosts, but returning goalkeeper Archie Davis had to be alert and made one great save with his foot.

Manu's second on 26 minutes was an excellent finish into the bottom corner from our wide after a sublime pass by Sonny French, and he completed his hat-trick 12 minutes later after good set up by Greg Williams and Harry Jones to make it 4-0 at half time.

Any thoughts that United might ease up in the second half were quickly dispelled as Aylesbury soon had the ball in the net. Substitute Wes Iroegbu finished convincingly but there was confusion as after a long consultation the goal was chalked off for offside.

With the second half disrupted by numerous changes for both sides, it took until the 72nd minute before the fifth eventually arrived. Jones deservedly getting his name on the scoresheet when his cross-shot took a wicked deflection to best the keeper.

Sonny French rounded off the scoring when he took a clever square pass to finish well and make it 6-0 and a good night's work for the Ducks.
