Didcot Town 4-0 Aylesbury Utd

Since moving to Didcot I have adopted my local team Didcot Town FC, who play in the fourth tier of non-league football. It was an entertaining game against Aylesbury United with goals from Felipe Barcelos, Adam Learoyd, Matt Woodley and Callum McNish. There were moments of great passing by Didcot and McNish was a livewire, along with the pace of Barcelos. Aylesbury United had a better second half although their shooting was pretty woeful at times.

I have taken my young son along and he loved it as you are right next to the action and it feels more ‘real’ as you are closer to the pitch and players. The standard of football is good as well, a fair few aerial balls and hoofing, but then as a lifelong Stoke City supporter I am sued to that 🙂 I would highly recommend getting along to see and support your local non-league team as it a refreshing change from the endless media focus on the Premier League. Plus at Didcot the older fans make some very witty and entertaining comments, a cross between the deadpan humour of the late, great Les Dawson and the Muppets’ Statler and Waldorf.

However, since Tuesday night’s game the club’s star striker Felipe Barcelos has joined Evo-Stik League South Division One South side Moneyfields (who Didcot been 5-0 in a pre-season friendly). The club was made aware yesterday that following a 7 day approach from Moneyfields that Felipe has decided to join the Portsmouth based club.
