Aylesbury - Buckingham Road Ground Can't Post or Reply Privately

This might be of interest to some.
I was able to take a look at this ground yesterday but unfortunately didn't have my camera with me.
The road has 2 foot high concrete blocks preventing vehicular access but these are easily vaulted.
The ground is otherwise completely accessible and a very forlorn sight and site it is too.

Think the owner wants to build houses on it but it is right next to the River Thame which tends to the flood. Either the houses would flood or the water would be moved elsewhere and flood something else, so we have an impasse and the ground just stands there rotting away.

United are looking at a return to Buckingham Road:

“Aylesbury United say they won't give up on coming back to the town.

The club's chairman says Aylesbury United have been keeping an eye on their old Buckingham Road ground, which they left in 2006.

Earlier in the year, the Ducks put in a bid to buy the site.

But they've heard this week that the offer has been rejected.

Graham Read said:

"Although the bid was fair, and, in our opinion, the market value, the current joint receivers are looking to maximise revenue to cover the Banks' losses.

"Buckingham Road is now being offered on the open market (being advertised in this week's Estates Gazette), asking for 'offers on an unconditional basis'.

"As a club we will be resubmitting a bid. To this effect, we are offering/looking for potential investors either by direct contribution (share ownership) or we may even go down the crowdfunding route."

Lots of supporters have obviously called for the club to come back, after playing in Leighton, Thame and Chesham over the past 13 years.

Graham added:

"We have and will never give up on our endeavours in returning to Aylesbury, and although some may believe we have outgrown Buckingham Road, it currently seems our quickest route back."

Interesting to say they've outgrown it - they're at step 4 and it would surely be fine at step 2?

Agreed. For a club who've never played in the current step 2 and have sunk as low as step 5, they're certainly not too big for Buckingham Road

presume they would effectively just be buying the land ad the place is so dilapidated it would need rebuilding. As the site has been empty for so long you would think the receivers would cut there losses

It's more in reference to the number of teams the club now has from juniors, to womens, walking football etc. The plan was to try and get a complex where all these teams could play.
