Aylesbury United boss Tony Joyce said he was proud of his side for showing bouncebackability when they beat Cinderford 3-1 in the FA Cup on Saturday.

The Ducks were left licking their wounds after a Bank Holiday humbling at the hands of bitter rivals Aylesbury FC going into a 160-mile round trip to Cinderford.

But Joyce was delighted with the attitude of his players as they got back to winning ways, scooping the club £2,000 prize money in the process.

“We showed great bouncebackability didn’t we, which was great to see,” Joyce said.

“It was a long old day for the players, we had to leave at 10.30am, and we went into it off the back of losing, deservedly to our good friends last week so it was a big ask.

“But it is nice to be through and we’re already further than we got last year and hope to continue, although we wont be underestimating anyone that’s for sure.”

The reward for United is a trip to Combined Counties side Westfield next Saturday. The club’s scheduled match against Royston on Wednesday night has been moved after their opponents needed to play an FA Cup replay against Northampton Spencer.
