Aylesbury FC 0 Tring Athletic 1

A single goal from ex Mole Kieron Turner separated the teams in this entertaining friendly at Haywood Way

Manager Scott Reynolds went into this latest Pre Season game without the services of Jordan Jenkins, Craig Carby, Tami Oladejo and Alfi Touceda and with Left Back Matt Hall returning to Leighton Town, again it was a changed back four with ex Kings Langley and South Shields
centre Half Lewis Strafford coming in to partner David Femiola in the centre of defence, Jay Castello coming in at right back and Luke Cray switching to left back. It was perhaps these changes again to the defence that resulted in Kieron Turner's second half goal.

The Moles started well and were trying to play possession football, but on a hard and bumpy Haywood Way pitch, this was always gong to be a difficult task. There were first half chances from Carl Tappin and Ty Deacon and with Ryan Ware and Aaron King combining well the management team will be pleased with the side going forward.

Aaron King had a great opportunity at the start of the second half when again after some nice interplay with Ware the big striker found himself ten yards out but the Tring keeper was equal to the task and pushed the ball round the post. The Tring stopper then made two more excellent saves from King as FC tried to break the deadlock but he was equal to the task and kept Aylesbury at bay.

With twelve minutes left of the game those defensive frailties came to the fore when a mix up on the left side of the FC defence found a Tring striker in acres of space, the cross found Turner unmarked in the box and he was able to get the ball past Ashley Jenkins for the only goal of the game.

There were lots of positives from the game, and more game time in the bank for the squad, next up it's Newport Pagnell Town at Haywood Way this Saturday with a 3pm Kick Off.
