Tomorrow

Of course, tomorrow sees our league campaign draw to a close, with the long trip to Heybridge Swifts. In a game that will be crucial for the prospects of Heybridge, Chesham and Boreham Wood, emotions will no doubt be running high. A defeat for Heybridge will see them relegated, and perhaps Chesham safe. However, a win for Heybridge will see Chesham relegated to the first Division, which would mean losing our Boxing Day derbies. Something I'm sure we don't want to happen.

If you can't get to Heybridge tomorrow, why not come and watch the Reserves final game of the season, at home to Hillingdon Borough. The ressies have done brilliantly this year in achieving promotion to the Suburban League Premier Division, and still have a chance of winning the Championship. If they win by 21 clear goals, and Oxford City lose, then the title is Aylesbury's!!!

A goal in the last five minutes condemned Aylesbury to a second defeat in a row, and ensured Heybridge's Premier Division safety. The Swifts' win means that our near neighbours Chesham are relegated, despite their heroic 1-0 win away at Hendon, along with Boreham Wood, who lost 1-2 at Maidenhead. Incidentally, ex-Duck Scott Honeyball scored Wood's goal, but it wasn't enough for them.

The final league table makes good reading for the Ducks, as we finish in 17th place. Even so, a win today would have seen us reach 15th place in the table.

All eyes will now be on Monday's Berks & Bucks Cup Final against Maidenhead, at Chesham United.

 

Aylesbury 1 Bishop's Stortford 2

Aylesbury's recent run of good form was ended at Buckingham Road by our old Division 1 adversaries, Bishop's Stortford. In a match which saw kick-off delayed after Stortford were held up in traffic, both goals for the Blues came from crosses, converted by Andy Arinsiba and Rob Gould.

The Ducks' response came from Alex Stanley heading his first goal for the club, from a Greg Williams cross. It was the leader's first touch of the ball after coming on as a substitute.

The match also saw a first league start for Ryan Wiffin, although he had little chance to shine in what was a pretty poor match.

The Ducks second string overcame Saturday's defeat to see off Maidenhead 5-2 last night. Goals from Pritchard, Golding, Gray, Brumwell and Sells sealed the win, and Danny Lampton made an excellent double save to deny the home side.

A dire game for the Ducks ended in a three goal defeat at the hands of Grays Athletic. The home side were never in the game, and a goal, let alone victory, looked far, far away.

Grays on the other hand played some good football at times and looked well organised. Once more, it is surprising to see their current league position.
