Aylesbury FC and United will find out when their big derby dates are for next season when the Calor Southern League fixtures are announced at 9am on Wednesday July 17.

Draws for the opening rounds of the FA Cup and FA Trophy will take place on Friday.

Meanwhile, in the build-up to the new season, the Ducks will be visiting Shakespeare country, specifically Stratford Town, who are the latest addition to the pre-season fixture schedule.

The two sides, who have never previously met, will play on Saturday August 10 at the DCS Stadium.

Across the divide, Aylesbury FC were back in pre-season training on Tuesday night. Some 25 players joined boss Craig Faulconbridge for the first of three nights of graft.

Ben Stevens, Brian Haule, Leon Osei, Kwasi Frempong, Ronayne Marsh-Brown, Max Farrelly, George Tomlin returned while a number of other new faces were getting a sweat on as the Moles were put through their paces for two hours of bleep tests, running and hard graft.

There is more training on Wednesday and Thursday night ahead of a trial game on Saturday at home to Buckingham Athletic.
