BCC F; Aylesbury FC 0-1 Winslow United

Aylesbury – 0
Winslow United – 1


Winslow United gave departing management team Paul Alleyne & Ronnie Joe the perfect send off with a narrow victory over Aylesbury FC to lift the Buckingham Senior Charity Cup on Monday at Stratford Fields, a late Harry Dalton winner came just as most of the healthy crowd on the sidelines thought they were heading towards a penalty shoot-out with the game seemingly destined to end in stalemate. Afterwards both managers agreed the Ploughmen deserved to lift the trophy on the balance of play, for Aylesbury it was their last ever game as next season they change name and drop a level to form a new club that will begin life back at step five, for United the hunt goes on for the managerial replacement that can continue the legacy built over the past two seasons that has seen consecutive third place finishes in the Spartan South Midlands League Division One table, and also the clubs first ever appearance in the FA Cup.

The first chance fell to the Moles when a throw from Sam Odusoga out on their right saw a glancing header from Ty Deacon straight at Winslow custodian Ash Jenkins, a free kick then found Ben Stevens at the back post who forced Jenkins into a brilliant save at the base of his front stick and a follow up from Brian Haule saw a deflection lift the ball up & bounce off the top of the crossbar and over the top. Alfi Touceda then tried his luck from twenty yards after cutting in from the flank but dragged wide, at the other end Matt Cruse got down the wing before laying inside to Dan Parsons who flicked into the middle where Aaron King chipped over the bar, within sixty seconds a lob over the Aylesbury backline saw an appeal for offside turned down leaving Parsons free to run at goal, his low shot had Nick Bennion down superbly to push away single handed.

Last game for Aylesbury FC before name change

A long ball played into the Winslow area was allowed to bounce which gave Bruno Brito the chance to peel off the shoulder of Jack Page and execute an over the head bicycle kick which Jenkins again did well to get down to, from the clearance Ryan Freshwater sent team mate Page away on goal on his own where Bennion simply stood tall and got enough of a block to deflect for a corner, an in swinger from the flank had Aston Goss at the back of the eighteen yard area cushioning down to the incoming Alex Kedzierski who did well to connect but in mid-air could only curl wide, followed closely by a Simon King free kick being chipped through the red backline for brother Aaron to run on to but a little too much pace meant he couldn’t quite get the touch needed, a loose ball in the corner then collected by Parsons who turned Stevens to fizz across the six-yard box where both Bennion & Aaron King competed for a touch but it eluded both to roll harmlessly for a throw. H/T: 0-0

An early Aylesbury second half corner curled in by Brito found Stevens who headed over much to his own disgust, the resulting goal kick was scuffed only as far as Haule who advanced to the penalty arc but then dragged wide, United’s first attack of the half saw an attempted cross from the flank from Aaron King collected low at his near post by Bennion. A clever chip picked out Parsons on the edge of the six-yard area and with the whole target to aim at he pulled his effort the wrong side of the closest upright which he couldn’t quite believe, another run down the touchline by full back Page ended with a great delivery into the box where Parsons headed over with the keeper struggling to get over to cover.

Winslow celebrate goal

Both sides started making substitutions looking for some inspiration and with quarter of an hour left an Aylesbury move broke down in the corner and as they were looking for a free kick that never came, Kedzierski knocked out to Cruse who put the perfect pass around the defence for newly introduced Dalton to race onto and drive towards goal but from close range he stabbed wide. Page then explored space along the eighteen yard line before laying off to Aaron King who tried to stroke into the bottom corner but fired the wrong side of the post, then with eight minutes to go the yellow n blues took the lead when Dalton again played away down the right channel but this time his shot across Bennion found the target as it bounced into the far bottom corner.

There were five additional minutes added at the end in which Aylesbury came mightily close to an equaliser when a clearance fell invitingly for substitute Ken Feyi to hit first time back through a crowded box, Jenkins rooted to the spot could only watch as it hit his left hand post and to his delight out for a goal kick. F/T: 0-1

BCC SF; Winslow United 5-2 Buckingham Athletic

Winslow United – 5
Buckingham Athletic – 2

(agg: 6-4)


Winslow United came from behind on the night & on aggregate to beat their local rivals on Tuesday at Elmfield Gate to record their first win in five attempts over their arch enemies this season and book their Buckingham Charity Cup final place where they will face Aylesbury FC, ironically at the home of Athletic on Bank Holiday May Day. Trailing from the first leg United went further behind when Jordan Appleton struck on a counter attack but once Steve Garbutt equalised from a corner The Ploughmen never looked back, even affording to have a penalty saved on their way to a three-one lead at the break, a late second half red card for The Ath saw two further goals kill off the game as a contest and a late Kyle Stimpson strike was a mere consolation for the boys in blue.

Matt Cruse forced Buckingham custodian Josh McAdoo down low to his near post early on after finding some space on the right on the area, the next Winslow attack broke down high up the pitch from where Kevin Owusu sent Appleton racing away down the left and he made thirty yards before picking out Robbie Carter in the middle of the box but from close range he cleared the crossbar. Ath went close again when Ryan Kelsey saw an opportunity from midfield hitting it towards the nearest upright that had Winslow keeper Sam Ashmead having to get down quickly and block, at the opposite end Cruse won a corner off Stuart Ironmonger and from there the deadlock was broken just ahead of the quarter hour mark.

Steve Garbutt levels

The hosts had three attempts at the set piece and after two clearances back over the byline the third was headed towards the eighteen yard line where Owusu collected and advanced before threading the perfect pass between the two yellow centre halves for Appleton to race onto and draw Ashmead out to curl around the isolated custodian. The lead lasted just six minutes as a corner curled in from the United right found the head of Garbutt in front of goal and he planted into the back of the net unchallenged, in the same amount of time it took to level they then took the lead as a Simon King cross was met by Marcus Hussey who diverted it towards one corner but in front of the keeper a defender stuck out a leg to put across into the opposite giving the shot stopper no chance.

By this stage the home side were rampant and within three minutes Cruse made it three-one when he latched onto a cross which was missed by the blue backline to tuck past McAdoo, before the visitor’s could catch their breath their hosts had a penalty when Cruse was felled inside the area but Ryan Freshwater saw his spot kick saved, Cruse was first to the rebound but his drive crashed back off the goal frame and was eventually cleared. As much as the away side tried to keep the ball from their goal mouth they were constantly under siege anytime they lost it, one attack headed clear saw Aaron King released upfield and from the edge of the box his fierce low drive had McAdoo having to use both hands to turn around his post. H/T: 3-1

Late red card for Jack Menday

The second half was never going to live up to the first and some good defending from both sides few chances were created, an early cross from the Athletic wing found Owusu at the back post but sliding in he could only lift over the top, substitutions then delayed the game and one almost had an immediate impact when Harry Dalton was fed inside his marker to advance into the area but from the edge of the six-yard box he fired the wrong side of the near post. Then with nine minutes of regulatory time left a Buckingham attack was cleared long for Alex Kedzierski to chase downfield, as he neared the area Jack Menday came across to challenge and both went down, the referee brandished a straight red card to the disbelief of the Ath midfielder.

From the resulting free kick Simon King drilled low across the area into McAdoo’s bottom left hand corner to finally end any thoughts of a comeback, although at the opposite end Ashmead had to be alert when Stimpson got away making a great block from close range, Dalton then found time & space down the left and as he went past the advancing McAdoo he squared into the middle where Kelsey slid in to block and luckily the ball got stuck under his legs, allowing him to recover and clear. A late shout for handball in the United goalmouth was waved play on and five minutes into added time the hosts won a throw in the corner, launched into Aaron King on the edge of the six-yard area he took control on his chest before swivelling to fire inside the near post, from the restart Ath went straight upfield and pulled one back through Stimpson, his shot taking a slight deflection on its way into the bottom corner. F/T: 5-2

BJCC; Towcester Town 4-2 Potterspury

Towcester Town – 4
Potterspury – 2


Towcester Town secured their place in this season’s Buckingham Junior Charity Cup final with a first half showing that Potterspury had no answer to, and once keeper Sam Kelly was sent off it was always going to be an uphill struggle for his side to get themselves back into the tie, the resulting penalty put them three down and it was four before the break, Richard Parker helping himself to a forty minute hatrick which could have been double at least by the end of the game. Despite the poor weather conditions at the start of the game, a few hearty souls braved the conditions to witness this local derby between the sides from the North Bucks & District League Premier Division, Pury now go into Tuesday’s Fred Tew Final for losing semi-finalists where they meet Steeple Claydon, whilst Town meet Deanshanger Athletic on Thursday evening for the gold & silver play-off, both games again at Stony Stratford.

An early long throw into the box from Towcester was allowed to bounce which saw Parker able to get a header that Potterspury custodian Kelly had to fling himself at to push away for a corner, another searching cross then met the head of Jack Shaw but he could only help it on its way wide of the far upright, Parker then tucked a pass inside to his skipper Macaulay Copping who inside the penalty arc had to twist and turn before seeing his curling effort brush the keepers fingertips on its way past the post. At this stage Joe Major’s men were finding it hard to contain their opponents; a brief respite saw Dave Cole drag a shot wide from eighteen yards out, but on thirteen minutes the inevitable opener came but it was an error in defence that saw Town break the deadlock, a free kick back to Kelly who laid off to a defender who in turn played straight into the path of Parker who from twenty-five yards simply accelerated into the box to slot home.

Macaulay Copping puts Towcester in command from spot

Parker doubled his tally five minutes later when he collected a pass twenty yards out in the middle of the pitch from where he fired into the bottom right hand corner, moments later a corner curled in saw the front man crash a header back off the post with a defender on hand to clear, but then on twenty-four minutes the game seemed over for Pury when Sam Kelly was sent off. Shaw was released away on goal and as the keeper came out to challenge he went down, the referee allowed play to continue as a shot was cleared inside the six-yard box but then blew his whistle and pointed to the spot, before brandishing the straight red to Kelly. Despite the protests Adam Kelly donned the gloves but was powerless to stop Copping firing into the top corner, Lee White was then sacrificed as Sam Pittam was brought on to play in between the sticks whilst Adam Kelly returned to his forward position.

A free kick to Pury was cleared out by the blue defence as far as Joe Manning but his fierce drive was rising all the way as it sailed over Loz Benham’s crossbar, and another set piece angled in towards the far post was met on the volley by Dean Lyden that flashed across the goal face and a yard or two wide. Town completed their scoring five minutes before the interval through a simple routine, a goal kick from Pittam went straight to Shaw in midfield who hit it first time straight back through the middle of the black & white defence for Parker to smash into the bottom corner to complete his hatrick. H/T: 4-0

Ollie Whittome scores late second for Potterspury

Towcester started the second half as they finished the first when a ball across the Pury backline was chased down by Parker and he dinked inside to Shaw to hit first time but over the top, at the opposite end Jamie Hall was played in on goal where Benham denied with his legs inside his six-yard box, the same striker then released away upfield again where he was shadowed all the way by Oliver Peters who timed his sliding challenge perfectly to rob possession just as it seemed he would shoot from close range. A free kick to Potterspury right on the far left of the penalty box saw Kelly fire over the top, but then just on the hour mark he was sent chasing into the area where he rounded the keeper but the challenge brought him down and a second penalty of the evening awarded, despite the calls for cards again nothing was given and Kelly pulled a goal back from the spot.

Another poor clearance found Copping unmarked where he was allowed the freedom to take a touch before attempting to curl inside the back post but only found the waiting gloves of Pittam, at the other end substitute Stevie Dean flashed a low drive diagonally across the box and wide of the far upright, with twelve minutes left the deficit was reduced further when a knock down the middle for Ollie Whittome to chase after saw him slot home from inside the arc. A Town free kick saw Copping fizz into the box where two opposite sets of boots sent the ball over the bar, the officials deciding a goal kick would suffice, the last chance then saw the Towcester captain find their hatrick man on the eighteen yard line with back to the target, his flick up and overhead kick comfortable for Pittam to catch. F/T: 4-2
