Aylesbury- not the Ducks

Recommended Posts

In his preview of the Aylesbury match, I see that the hosts described their pitch as sticky but playable. An understatement, perhaps swampy and barely playable would be a better description. Players were unable to stay on their feet, the ball was sticking and at times the only sensible option was to boot the ball into touch to get the ball " out of the goo".


Having said that all our players put in a good shift, played some decent football considering the conditions and will feel that we had enough chances to win the match. We were using the pace of Jack and Samad to exploit their ponderous defence but missed several golden chances. Against the run of play our old player, Brian Haule, scored again ( he always seems to score against us) but then Jack Beadle finished an excellent move to equalise. On the stroke of half-time their No 7 had a stroke of madness when he swung a punch at Max Webb and was rightly sent off.


Against ten men we created lots of good opportunities until that man, Brian Haule, scored again to restore Aylesbury' s lead. By now the pitch was playing really badly and we did well to get back to parity before a final onslaught by us to try and find the winner. Sadly it was not to be- how we have not won since Marlow is amazing, generally, we have dominated matches and creates lots of good chances. Surely our luck must change soon?
