I didn't want to resurrect a very old thread on the Aston Clinton Park Club however it was interesting to look back on when they last won the Division Two Championship in 2011/12, doing the League and Cup double that season, with contributions from Craig Bicknell and Steve Tucker as well as TringArmy, Savagebee and Winslow Boy who have always stayed loyal and faithful to the Forum, unlike all of the old disloyal und unfaithful posters. Aston Clinton were unfortunate the following 2012/13 campaign as a one point deduction cost them a successive Championship losing out to Kent Athletic who had an inferior goal difference, the deduction was for playing an ineligible player in a fixture at Risborough Rangers on 9 April 2013 when they already had one hand on the trophy:

I believe this was posted on the New Bradwell St Peter thread but over a hundred photographs from New Bradwell St Peter v Aston Clinton in a 2019/20 SSML Division Two fixture on Saturday 28 December 2019 which resulted in a 0-0 stalemate, attendance 34 on a crisp afternoon:

The Wycombe Senior Cup 2019/20 thread is mostly about Aston Clinton, they have made the competition their own over the last few seasons however were always going to find it tough at Horsenden Lane on Tuesday 4 February against the so called 'unbeatables' of Risborough Rangers and so it proved, report and over 150 photographs below:

Over 100 photographs from the Aston Clinton v Bedford SSML Challenge Trophy Second Round tie, at Aston Clinton Park on Saturday 30 November 2019, a shock was always going to be on the cards and so it proved with Aston Clinton winning 4-2 and progressing to meet Arlesey Town at Hitchin Road where  they were unlucky to lose 4-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw:

Photographs and match report from Aston Clinton v Mursley United in a SSML Division 2 fixture on 2 May 2018 which Aston Clinton won 5-0 with two goals from Mitchell Collins, Alex McGowan, Alex Little and Ryan Binnee, to be fair to Mursley United the scoreline slightly flattered Aston Clinton as it was only 1-0 at the interval:

Over 100 photographs and match report from the 2018/19 SSML Division Two Cup Final between Old Bradwell United and Aston Clinton, played at Bell Close on Wednesday 10 April 2019, which Old Bradwell United won 3-2 on penalties after a 0-0 stalemate, no extra time was played. Aston Clinton were left kicking themselves that they couldn't manage to beat ten men for 83 minutes of normal time with Old Bradwell United's Darryl Smith receiving his marching orders on just seven minutes:

There is an on-line Local Gym & Fitness page on Aston Clinton Football Club which is very informative about the Club and well up to date, or at least until the curtain abruptly came down in March on the 2019/20 campaign, there are some good links to photographs and video footage:

An interesting Sports Shots interview with Aston Clinton's new supremo Jack Seaton ahead of tomorrow's pre-season friendly with Chalvey Sports at Aston Clinton Park as well as the new campaign. It will be interesting to see how the Club cope with the loss of Lewis Workman who they always relied on to hit the net which he did for them on a regular basis, I believe Lewis had been with the Club pretty much all of his career prior to the recent move to Aylesbury Vale Dynamos apart from a brief and unhappy spell at Marlow:

Aston Clinton travel to Station Road to meet Mursley United on Saturday 19 September for their first SSML Division Two fixture of the new campaign, they then entertain new boys Berkhamsted Comrades the following Saturday. Amazingly both League fixtures at Station Road and Aston Clinton Park last season failed to materialise due to the curtain crashing down on the 2019/20 campaign in mid March shortly before the sides were due to lock horns for the first time, they are however obviously no strangers and played out a pulsating 5-5 stalemate at Station Road just before the end of the 2018/19 season in a game that will be remembered for many a long year.

Looks like a new clubhouse, bar, changing rooms being built at the moment. Doesn’t  look particularly ready for the season yet.
 

Edit. There appear to be temporary changing rooms in place round the other side.

TringArmy - At least there has been progress since Saturday 7 March when Aston Clinton hosted Bovingdon, it's strange isn't it how a Club can get permission to erect a large building at their ground but can't insall floodlighting which is just as fundamental to its future:

The facilities appear to be council owed so lights certainly won’t be a priority for them. We had the same issue at Miswell Lane even though we had a long lease over the pitch & clubhouse, the council refused lights as freeholders.

Aston Clinton Development will travel to Long Crendon Reserves on Saturday 26 September for their first Hellenic League Division Two North fixture of the new campaign. Whereas the likes of Buckingham Athletic Development and Old Bradwell United Development are in Bluefin Challenge Cup First Round action that day, Aston Cliton have received a bye into the Second Round so have been given a League game however, sadly, won't be gracing the hallowed Marsh Lane turf where Long Crendon's First team groundshare with Oxford City, the game will be played at the Recreation Ground in Chearsley Road, Long Crendon, kick off 3.00pm.

An excellent start to Aston Clinton Development's Hellenic League Division Two North campaign winning 3-1 at Long Crendon Reserves on Saturday (26 September) with goals from Tino Leone and a brace from Alex Little despite the home side taking the lead on fifteen minutes, Leone equalised two minutes later and it was left to Little to put the game to bed on 25 and 33 minutes, it was surprising there were no further goals in the second period. On Saturday (3 October) Aston Clinton Development entertain Kidlington Development who were also in League action on Saturday losing 8-1 at home to Easington Sports Development so there shouldn't really be any concerns for supremo Lee Harrison who will be more worried about the visit to Southam United a week later, a Club who only reformed last season and have a new stadium. The First team meanwhile started their SSML Division Two campaign with a 3-0 win at Mursley United on 19 September before entertaining new boys Berkhamsted Comrades last Saturday drawing 2-2 with a 96th minute equaliser from Luke Desmond, new boss Jack Seaton's men aren't in action on Saturday but then entertain high flying Codicote on 10 October.

No reports of problems at Aston Clinton Park as yet for this afternoon, I gather the Development side's Hellenic League Division Two North fixture with Kidlington Development is going ahead, kick off 3.00pm. First team supremo Jack Seaton must be pleased he wasn't scheduled a fixture this weekend due to the inclement weather and can concentrate on locking horns with high flying Codicote at Aston Clinton Park next Saturday who are likely to pick up another three points this afternoon against Buckingham United, weather permitting:

A brief match report from Aston Clinton Development's 3-1 win over Kidlington Development at Aston Clinton Park last week (3 October) in a Hellenic League Division Two North fixture which went ahead despite the weather conditions, Alex Little and Aaron Bonham with a brace got the goals. Yesterday however Lee Harrison's men fell to their first defeat of the season, 4-3 at Southam United's plush new Bobby Hancocks Park although that only tells half the story as having fallen 3-0 behind after only 28 minutes pulled it back to 3-3, with goals from Michael Harper, Rob Jolly and Harry Stroud, only to concede again on 81 minutes and this time were  unable to reply. It wasn't a great day at the office for the Club as, coincidentally, the First team also lost 4-3 to Codicote at Aston Clinton Park after leading 3-1 on 70 minutes with goals from Robert Doncaster, Mpumi Nyembe and Joe Smith, boss Jack Seaton won't have been best pleased with that late capitulation and has a dreaded trip to Old Bradwell United on Saturday (17 October). The Development team travel to Hellenic League Premier Division Holmer Green on Tuesday evening for a Bluefin Challenge Cup Second Round tie under the lights at Watchet Lane followed by a Chairman's Challenge Cup First Round tie at home to Division Two East outfit Watlington Town on Saturday:
