Fans put best foot forward for Cancer charity and 'Bring the Ducks Home' campaign

A dedicated group of Aylesbury United supporters will be walking from Aylesbury United's old Buckingham Road ground all the way to Dunstable.

Before the Ducks game against AFC Dunstable on 30th October, the fans will be doing the sponsored 15+ mile walk along the canal and through the countryside. Richard Lloyd, Leader of Aylesbury Town Council told us exactly why:

"We're doing it for two reasons, one to keep awareness of the fact that Aylesbury United have not played in Aylesbury for what is now FIFTEEN years, and to also raise money for an excellent cause, Cancer Care and Haematology Fund, who support the unit at Stoke Mandeville Hospital."

The Cancer Care and Haematology Fund is a charity the Ducks work closely with, as many past and present players have been helped by the local charity. 

United currently play their home games at Chesham United's Meadow, but Richard says the work continues to try and change that:

"This season they've had eight cup games that they've managed to draw at home and not a single one of them has been played in Aylesbury! It's a testament to the club that they've managed to keep going this long outside of the town, we're desperately trying to find ways to get them back.

It's not easy though:

"It's very time consuming, I but think [poeple] can be assured the Town Council are working extremely hard to bring Aylesbury United back, and to provide some up to date facilities for the town."
