Aylesbury 0-1 Aylesbury United

Aylesbury – 0

Aylesbury United – 1

United took all three points in the Aylesbury derby on Monday afternoon thanks to a first half goal from captain Jack Wood, in a game that was played in near thirty-degree heat and created very few real chances at goal. A healthy crowd turned up for the locally dubbed ‘El Quackico’ but some poor final third play as well as some stern defending saw chances at a premium, and neither keeper really tested all afternoon, apart from one looping effort from Wood which gave those in green and white the local bragging rights.

Both managers made four changes to their sides from Saturday looking to kick start their seasons, but the opening ten minutes were very cagey with neither really threading any flowing passes together, the closest chance for the home side saw Ty Deacon touch wide from a Jeanmal Prosper cross.

The Ducks won a free kick right in the corner on thirteen minutes, Reece Cameron swung in an inviting cross which Greg Williams met at the front post but glanced his header over. Moles player/manager Davis Haule then thumped a shot over the top from a half clearance, and Prosper got on the end of a right wing cross but surrounded by United defenders he could only blaze over.

Ollie Hogg was then inches away from connecting to a cross on a breakaway for the away side, had he met the ball when in front of goal would surely have scored, however the ball sailed past him from the cross and was cleared to safety. United grew in confidence with some good possession, and took the lead on thirty-eight minutes.

Jack Wood celebrates goal

A ball in the Moles box wasn’t cleared and eventually fell to Wood at the back post and he lifted the ball up and over home keeper James Weatherill to break the deadlock. The home side tried to respond, Keiron Schmidt blasting way over the top after seizing on a loose ball outside the box, and the last kick of the half saw Prosper sail a free kick way over Jack Stillitoe’s crossbar.  H/T: 0-1

The second half was devoid of action for fifteen minutes, the home side simply could not break down the solid back line of the United defence, and both front lines huffed and puffed but could not get near either keeper.

A Jack Wood clearance on the edge of the box cannoned back off a Moles player and spiralled across the goal mouth to Ty Deacon who at full stretch could only lift his shot over the top. Schmidt cut in from the right, across the eighteen-yard line before driving into Stillitoe’s gloves, before a United attack saw Harry Jones set away down the flank, with Dejon Noel-Williams waiting in the middle the cross was screwed over the crossbar and out for a goal kick.

Sonny French had a chance inside the box turning and shooting but straight at Weatherill, then in added time a cross from the Aylesbury left looked to be heading for Harry Scott at the back post, but Jake Bewley got in first to turn it away for a corner, and with it the chance was gone. United held on to the ball at the end to seal a much-needed win, and in the process jump above their hosts in the league table. F/T: 0-1

Attendance: 356

El Quackico preview

Monday 28th August 2017

Aylesbury FC v Aylesbury United FC

Southern League Division One East

Kick-Off: 3.00pm

Bank Holiday Monday see’s the Aylesbury derby back at Haywood Way, known locally as ‘El Quackico’ the two club’s nicknames would see us witness The Moles v The Ducks, and an array of animal based puns to choose from. But we’re not one for making a mountain out of a mole hill, and certainly don’t want to ruffle any feathers.

With the season just three games old both sides will be looking to register their first win, and for United their first point(s) as three opening defeats sees them sitting uncomfortably in twenty-first place in the table, with their hosts just a point and three places above them with a solitary draw in their opening games.

Both teams have tasted success this season in the FA Cup, Aylesbury saw off Cirencester at Haywood Way by the odd goal in three, whilst United scored four past Leverstock Green although it did take a replay to settle the tie.

Saturday’s league results both ended in defeats so what better way to kick start your season than a local derby, on a Bank Holiday Monday that promises to be a scorcher on and off the pitch, with temperatures forecast of up to 26°C.

So if you’re digging around for somewhere to go, get down to The SRD Stadium, you’d be quackers to miss it!

Aylesbury FC start season tomorrow at Hayes & Yeading

Aylesbury FC start their new season tomorrow with a trip to Hayes & Yeading, a club who not so long ago were in the Blue Square Premier (Conference in old money!)

Taken from the AFC website:

This weekend we travel to the SkyEx Community Stadium in Hayes for the first game of the season and the first competitive game at the SkyEx.

Hayes & Yeading have had back to back relegations, In The 2015–16 season they finished second from bottom in the National League South despite the reappointment of Garry Haylock as manager, resulting in relegation to the Southern Football League Premier Division. Former Oxford United coach Mickey Lewis took the manager’s reins for the 2016–17 season in the Southern League but dropped down to youth team duties in October after a poor run of form. Paul Hughes and Ritchie Hanlon were appointed as joint managers in November, joining from Kings Langley but they were then relegated from the Premier Division to complete their 3rd relegation in 5 seasons.

Despite this Hayes & Yeading today and Cambridge City on Tuesday will be a tough test for the new Moles side.

Manager Davis Haule has some tough selection decisions to make after an excellent pre season, he has a squad of 26 all eager to gain a starting spot. The only absentees will be Ben Stevens and injury doubts are Brian Haule and Aston Goss.

KO is 3pm on Saturday and entrance is £10.00
