The exquisitely named Oran Swales is turning out for Levvy Green and Chris Cordara Soanes, the legendary centre back, is at Harependen Town

I suspect precedent will dictate that the game is replayed. Whether this would be the right decision I’m not so sure.

Wasn’t our best day yesterday but we’ll soldier on as always. Looking forward to Wednesday’s game.

Aylesbury United Discussion / Stewards required v Bedford, Wed 28th Oct
« Last post by Ian on October 25, 2020, 09:36:50 AM »
As with our match against Moneyfields, we will again be without our usual stewards for the match on Wednesday evening.  We were extremely grateful to those who stepped up and helped on that occasion and a number have already offered to do the same again this week.  If anyone else is able to help on the night, your support will be very gratefully received. 

Duties will involve sanitising balls/equipment, assisting in checking fans before entry to the stadium and guidance and reminders to supporters about social isolation.  All equipment required will be supplied.

Thanking you in advance!

Glad Ty is ok.can see both sides of the argument.i suggest we keep v.v. quiet and hope the League come up with a favourable decision😉!
Biggleswadecfully deserved their win, their blonde little 10 , the number 4 and the black lad up front were the best players on the pitch.as for us we were bloody awful ( as usual when we get a big following😞) summed up by the fact that I had ben seaton was my motm and he only played 45 minutes!
Lovely goal by us and over 50 away fans giving great support were the only highlights for us.
Ps we are still top of the league 8)

Re: the abandonment,  Personally, I’d want it replayed. It’s a whole new game. A whole, new 90 minutes. We may still lose. But we may not. It could be a crucial point or goal difference we may need come April. We have nothing to lose by replaying it & potentially a lot to gain.
You can’t tell me the players don’t want another shot at it too, for Ty, for an opportunity to show what they’re capable of after poor showings yesterday.

1  - So glad Ty is okay
2  - Today's performance was abysmal
3 - Never seen so many players below par
4 -  Biggleswade fully deserved to win
5 -  Game abandoned due to Ty's injury.....given we were in extra time as a club we should concede the points and not ask for the game to be replayed
6 - Their lady physio was an absolute star re Ty's injury . As a club can we send her some flowers
to acknowledge her help (Erica's idea which I fully support)
7 - Ty should not be our penalty taker
8 - Do we need some reinforcements to cement our excellent start to the season as clearly those out with injuries are having a detrimental effect on performances

Early indications are that Ty is battered and bruised, but no broken bones, which we should all be thankful for.  Wishing him a speedy and full recovery.  What has gone rather unnoticed is that he was to be shown a red card for his challenge by the referee when he had got to his feet.  Obviously that didn't happen due to his injury, but the red card will stand.

As to the outcome of the game, that rests with the Southern League to decide, iaw the rules of the competition.  We await their adjudication.

Difficult one, really the result should stand as the game was pretty much over, but I'm sure we'd jump at the chance to replay it!

Really hoping Ty is ok!

Game abandoned according to the Southern League website. That makes sense to me, but our players seemed to have been left with the impression that the referee had just blown up a couple of minutes early? One would imagine that the result will stand either way as we were well into stoppage time even before the injury...

Lots of players unfortunately had an off day at the same time today. It happens. We really gifted Biggleswade their goals, although they were probably the better side anyway and deserving winners.

Most importantly, best wishes to Ty Deacon, hopefully he's ok.

Further to Erika's message about paying in advance or on the day with correct money, all attending are expected to wear a mask at all times inside the ground.  Please ensure if you are travelling that you have one with you (unless you are exempt from wearing a mask)

I know this is specifically about the game at the weekend but is the mask issue done on a club by club basis ?

We are seeing a wide range of published guidelines at all clubs we are visiting this year, some enforced more than others.  We have to respect these guidelines, they are based on their own risk assessments of their grounds and national guidance.

Enforcement should be respected also, remembering these are volunteers (like our own) trying to strike a balance between allowing you all to enjoy a game in safety and comfort.

So the answer is yes, then ?

I just needed clarity on what the situation was, as with everything else regarding covid, the message is usually inconsistent. I am curious as to why I have a lecture about respect. I wont be attending games if I have to wear a mask for two hours.

It wasn't a lecture about respect at all, I would hope anyone with a modicum of common sense could understand that football clubs at our level are run by volunteers trying to do their best to provide football for the supporters.  You are right, every club will interpret the guidance in the way they think appropriate, so variations will occur.
