Yes, my first home game missed as I basked in glorious Bamk Holiday sunshine on the Dorset coast. However, with the Barnet game now postponed due to one of their team being on International duty (probably the Faroe Islands or something), I’m minded towards travelling to Ebbsfleet on Saturday, the train fare for that is £64.60 – more than Torquay! On Monday I took no … Continue reading Aldershot Town 1-1 Sutton United
Browsing their main forum (apparently there is another one run by an “arrogant twerp”), my impression overall was that TUFC fans are not happy that all the focus is on how poor Aldershot Town were and them not getting the credit they deserve for the magnificent win against a team who wouldn’t have scored if they’d carried on playing until midnight. Also mentioned is the … Continue reading From The Other Side: What Gulls fans had to say…
Pointless because we once again got nil point for our efforts. But in the sense of pointless meaning is it all really worth it, I would still like to paint a picture of optimism in what are fast becoming very dark times. As I spoke to several local fans post-match, if you can only beat Aldershot two-nil, I would be seriously worried! Thanks to Kurt … Continue reading Torquay 2-0 Aldershot: Pointless: But is it really?
From the FC Halifax website, courtesy of Rob Brown: Aldershot’s Recreation Ground is one of our favourite places to watch football and their reprieve from relegation at the end of last season was very much welcome. The club operate a soft segregation policy which allowed the 70 or so travelling Shaymen the freedom to wander around the colourful ground. The main stand which was opened … Continue reading From the other side: A traveller’s tale from Halifax
Boreham To Tears FC chairman Danny Hunter says he may reduce his investment in the club after a “laughable” crowd of 407 saw their defeat by Sutton on Saturday. The National League side have averaged 655 fans over three home games so far. Taking away season-ticket holders and travelling fans, Hunter said there were only 46 paying adult Boreham supporters at Saturday’s match and that … Continue reading Danny Hunter ‘sad’ after ‘abysmal’ 407 attendance

ALDERSHOT TOWN defender George Fowler admits even he is surprised to have got as many minutes under his belt as he has in the past few weeks after being out for eight months with a knee injury. The former Ipswich Town centre-back, pictured right, injured his knee while stretching for a ball in training last November. It was initially hoped an injection would see the … Continue reading Fowler ‘grateful’ for Searle’s faith
AFC FYLDE 1-4 WOKING Newly promoted Woking’s flying start to the National League season continued with a thumping win at AFC Fylde. Fylde stopper James Montgomery could not prevent Dave Tarpey’s exquisite 17th-minute free-kick opening the scoring at Mill Farm and the visitors doubled their lead six minutes before the interval when Kane Ferdinand nodded home Josh Casey’s whipped free-kick. A Lewis Montrose header halved … Continue reading National League Review: 17/08/2019
Aldershot Referee:Ben Speedie Attendance:1,539 Had the Shots won this game and in particular after that stellar first-half performance that was unrecognisable from Tuesday, the headline I mentally prepared would have been “happy days are here again”. And the northern tithead in the home end who got himself ejected would have been an icing on the cake memory, something to take home with as well … Continue reading Aldershot Town 1-1 FC Halifax: The luck of the draw?
