After five weeks of hard graft and plenty of community spirit Aylesbury FC’s ground is all ready for the 2013/14 season.

Since May 25, some six weeks ago, staff from shirt sponsors M&W, club groundsman Andy Stevens and his assistant Brett and an army of volunteers and supporters have spent every day working at the Moles’ Haywood Way base in preparation for the new season.
