Aylesbury United’s 2012/13 pre-season campaign began with a 1-1 draw at Division Two side Tring Corinthians on Saturday.
A very competitive match proved a good workout for the Ducks, but there were definite signs of rustiness after the summer break - especially in front of goal.
The first period was evenly matched, before speculative effort from Paul Edgeworth took a huge deflection to end up looping into the top corner for the opener after 63 minutes.
United lost their concentration and conceded almost immediately however, when Ben Gomm swept the ball home to round of a well fashioned Tring goal.
Aylesbury spent large periods camped in the Corries’ half as the match wore on, yet nearly got caught on the break several times as both teams had chances to win the game, but it ended all square.
