Aylesbury United’s opening pre-season game ended in a 1-1 draw with Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division opponents London Colney on Saturday.

The starting eleven contained two new faces in Taylor Collins - formerly of Tring Athletic - and Billy Adcock - Hanwell Town - and it was the latter who equalised in the second half with an impressive 45-yard lob over the stranded goalkeeper.

Just before that Jimmy Hill had scored with a shot in off the crossbar having been teed up James Ewington to break the deadlock.

Overall though it was a game of few clear cut opportunities with a draw the right result.

The Ducks also faced New Bradwell St Peter in a friendly last night, Tuesday, and this weekend they host Harefield United.

Ducks team: Dan Green, Lee Grace, Jake Bewley, Jack Wood ©, John Mulholland, Shane Wood, Jordon Frederick, Greg Williams, Taylor Collins, Shaun Owens, Billy Adcock.
