Aylesbury United Discussion / Support needed - AUFC v Wantage
« Last post by Ian on Today at 08:59:42 PM »
It won't have gone without notice that the club has had to take extra measures to ensure compliance with COVID-19 regulations and to safeguard supporter and player safety since the season started.  This has seen the addition of a number of volunteer stewards, who are all part of the Aylesbury United Walking Football team.  We are extremely grateful for their help on match day, it is true to say that we could not comply with all of the regulations we now have to adhere to without their help.

However, Wednesday night is their training night, so we will not be able to rely on them for our home midweek matches (one of the reasons why this week's FA Cup tie was played on Tuesday!)  The first match this will affect is next week's match against Wantage Town, so we are appealing for supporters to volunteer to be stewards for the evening to allow us to manage the requirements that COVID-19 is forcing on us.  This will mean people required to check the temperatures of people arriving for the game, collecting and sanitising balls that go out of play before they are returned to the playing surface and sanitising the goal posts and corner flags before the match, at half time and after the match.  A full briefing will be given to all volunteers before the game.

Having these volunteers are not just a "nice to have", they are essential for us to be allowed to continue to allow spectators to attend our matches.  If you can offer your services, for what is not an onerous task, which will still allow you to watch the match, please contact me or Warren by email.  ian.pluck@ntlworld.com or warrens.63@icloud.com . 

Thanks in advance!

As far as I'm concerned, when you've got a penalty record like ours in recent years and you get a new striker who's extremely keen to take them like Juwon, let him take the bloody penalties! Especially if he can back his case up with results as he has so far.

HAVING SAID THAT, I've seen Ty Deacon take good penalties in the past and two of Ollie Hogg's three last night were excellent (the other one cannot be explained).

Is that the first time we've gone out of a major competition on penalties?

It is frustrating to see players who we rate so highly not do themselves justice from the spot but let's take the positives out of last night:-

1. What a game to be involved in. We'll be talking about that for years to come.

2. That's 270 minutes of open play without defeat so far this season with only two goals conceded in those minutes.

3. What a team performance we're going to get against Wantage next week. The boys will be raring to go after last night.

It would help us fans if Ben might give us some views regarding pens. As Luke said 5 years is too long. Is it a skill that can be coached or a fear of failure ?

....cos we pick the wrong penalty takers ! Juwon was the only player that went up looking confident the rest the least said . Ben in my opinion should tell Juwon the jobs his wether he misses or scores for the season . The rest can ......

I just don't know how we can be so bad at penalties, for so long. It's been at least 5 years since I felt truly confident that we'd score every time we won one.

Wish they'd been as efficient on the pitch as they were off it! Can't remember when I've been more frustrated by watching the ducks.
Caused our own downfall and threw away much needed cash.
Dangled an unnecessary leg for a stupid pen, let an attacker turn 180 degrees in the box and then paid the penalty by  deflecting his shot for an own goal, coz they were still standing off to far. Then a series of bloody awful penalties. Must've been a classic for the neutral but I just found it intensely frustrating.
Riddick, Hogg and french were excellent and Jamie Rudd improved us when he came on.just to repeat an old Graham refrain from a couple of seasons ago 'we need a centre forward'!!!

For anyone concerned about Covid regulations I must say how well the club managed it against Long Crendon.  Registration is straight forward, entry was quick and easy, there's plenty of room to space out in the ground and if you do venture in to the bar it's well organised and safe.
