Shots fire double salvo against Grimsby

Well our luck had to change sometime and we finally got a slice yesterday. Speaking with away fans after the game, they said we won fair and square and were bemoaning their own misfortunes but STILL singing at the rail station! I have to say that Grimsby Town fans are just about the best I have seen for a long long time; great fun, generous, … Continue reading Shots fire double salvo against Grimsby

Kings Lynn FC (away)

Saturday sees the Shots travel to East Anglia. Just forty-five miles away from where Norwich will be playing Wolves in the Premier League. I’d heard conflicting things about ground admission prices but you can see here it’s £18 adults. £21 for a seat, absolute joke from a village club. There’s segregation too following a bit of unrest when they hosted Southend. 🤔 This will be … Continue reading Kings Lynn FC (away)

FACR4-Q: Shots @ Bowers & Pitsea FC

It’s a field. No, it is! But there’s a main stand with seats and so the Shots trip to Essex in the fourth qualifying round of this season’s FA Cup will, obviously, qualify as a banana skin given our current state of play but hopefully a positive result for us and a fine day out for the travelling fans. SO WHERE IS BOWERS & PITSEA? … Continue reading FACR4-Q: Shots @ Bowers & Pitsea FC

Stockport away (Sat 9th October)

Train tickets bought for Saturday. ✔️ Ticket prices at Edgeley Park are £18 and I’m waiting to hear back from Stockport County if we can pay on the day. ❓ Had a response. Not pay on the day then. I’ll be going into Manchester to meet up with Preston Shot 🍺 for some pre-match refreshments. These are essential when you’ve been on a train for … Continue reading Stockport away (Sat 9th October)

Aldershot Town -A – Wrexham

“We know what you are… we know what you are… sheep-shagging bastards, we know what you are” Wasn’t expecting their fans to come back with “We know what we are, we know what we are, sheep-shagging bastards, we know what we are” but that’s their sense of humour for you. Not just Wrexham fans but the Welsh in general and I love ’em for it. … Continue reading Aldershot Town -A – Wrexham

Aldershot Town 0-1 FC Halifax Town

Like I’d been saying all week in the build up, lose today it doesn’t matter. But it was troubled waters for The Shots on the homecoming of Molesley and Brown. The rationale on “doesn’t matter if we lose today” being that this is a complete rebuild and a new chapter. Also that much of the half-decent side we had last term is gone so we … Continue reading Aldershot Town 0-1 FC Halifax Town
