Why not think bigger !!!!

 - Ask FA to send a legends team after all said and done we were the last non league team to face England !! Explain our plight...they can only say no

- Contact national press (not just Bucks Herald) again explaining our plight and ask them to run a page or whatever in their paper

- Involve Ellen White

- Involve HS2

- Invite all local businesses (large and small) to contribute to our anniversary

I can go on but I'll finish on the above 5 points .

Definitely a legends match.

How about some sort of celebration evening with a meal / buffet, guest speakers and a disco? The rugby club would be a good place to host as they are great at putting things like this on.

Aylesbury United Discussion / 125th anniversary
« Last post by ProgrammePaul on February 13, 2021, 04:22:45 PM »
Hello all.

The club's 125th anniversary falls in 2022, so naturally we should make a big fuss of this fantastic achievement (hopefully we'll be back playing football by then!).

Just wanted to start the ball rolling and collect as many ideas as possible to mark this momentus occasion in the club's history. The earlier we start thinking about it, the more time there'll be to organise things.

A few ideas that sprang to mind:

  • 125th anniversary kit
  • Legends match/Supporters match
  • 125th anniversary merchandise – scarf, mug etc
  • Invite former Ducks as special guests to matches
  • Update the club crest to recosgnise the anniversary
  • Special anniversary magazine/programme
  • Something similar to the Festival of Football/Birthday party for all parts of the club
  • Raise the prize in the 50:50 draw to 125 for a season
  • Ask a local brewery to brew an anniversary beer (one did this for the 30th Florence Nightingale Hospice Beer Festival)

Aylesbury United Discussion / Season tickets FAO Ken
« Last post by harry the haddock on January 29, 2021, 07:43:23 PM »
FAO Ken - thanks for the offer to spin season tickets over to cover 21-22 season.
However, given that it seems the Gold Club members have continued to pay regardless , i feel it only right to decline your offer and will happily pay for a new season ticket next season. Despite the few games played, i thoroughly enjoyed the season, both on and off the pitch, and feel i got my money's worth.

i post this, not by trying to be a martyr, but in the hope of that others might do the same, and in so doing raise a few more shekels for the club .

Aylesbury United Discussion / Re: Whatever Happened ?
« Last post by mickeygee on January 26, 2021, 12:50:58 PM »
All good points.  A couple to add :

What happened to retreating 10 yards when a free kick is awarded ?  These days the defending team often stand a play right in front of the ball to prevent the kick being taken quickly, to allow their team to prepare themselves and thus negate the advantage the free kick was supposed to the give to compensate for the foul ? 
Or wasn't it ever the rule ? 

Why do refs allow teams to get away with picking the ball up and running back to defend when a free kick or throw in is given against them, thus preventing quick free kicks ? 
Yet they sometimes, quite rightly,  book players for kicking the ball away when free kicks are awarded.

Why do teams have to wait for defending teams to form a wall, line up the 'keeper etc when freekicks are given within 25/30 yards ?  It wastes so much time and reduces the advantage of the free kick.
The free kicks are meant to penalise the team which commits the fouls.
