April Fools, Stones and Peaches

SATURDAY 1ST APRIL 2023 Grosvenor Vale, Ruislip Kick off 3pm. Not just another new βœ… but it’s a venue I’ve been reading up on. Grosvenor Vale is a ground that Stones fans are fiercely proud of and there’s quite a bit of history to gen up on here. And no reason whatsoever to mention Gordon Hill. Too late. πŸ€ͺ Grosvenor Vale holds 3200. It’s a … Continue reading April Fools, Stones and Peaches

Over the moors. Take me to the moors.

So after our astonishing (and yes it was astonishing having lost the previous three games), over Southend I’ve decided that Solihull is a ground that I will finally get to tick off. “Over the moors, take me to the moors” is an affectionate nod to The Smiths’ Suffer Little Children which I’m sure you all know and if you don’t then you’re simply too young. … Continue reading Over the moors. Take me to the moors.

Shots @ Chelmsford City

SATURDAY 15 OCTOBER 2022 Chelmsford City FCMelbourne Community StadiumCapacity: 3,065 (Seats 1,311)Address: Salerno Way, Chelmsford, CM1 2EH Β£56 OPDR Almost a four-hour journey for me but I am planning on going for two reasons: one is it’s another ground to tick and two, to savour the embarrassment of another first round FA Cup exit by way of an underling. It looks like a long walk or a … Continue reading Shots @ Chelmsford City

Altygether Now: Shots@Altrincham

Tour Of Duty. It means if you’re Aldershot, you go. Reasonable excuses accepted. After suffering acute analgesia for the past few months I can be excused, however, it’s my intention to be at Altrincham. For me it’s also a venue that needs to be ticked off. WHEN: Saturday 26th March 2022, kick off 3pm WHERE: The J Davidson Stadium, Moss Lane, Altrincham I’d hope for … Continue reading Altygether Now: Shots@Altrincham

FA Trophy 4th Round: Shots 0-2 Bromley

This won’t take long. Today was shit from start to finish. From seeing the starting line-ups where Bromley fielded a weakened side and were up against arguably our best, what transpired was a shit-show right up there with our worst. Looked at the team sheets and thought, they don’t want it. On top of that, a feeble attendance of eleven hundred showed all that we … Continue reading FA Trophy 4th Round: Shots 0-2 Bromley

Shots @ Chesterfield 2022

*Prepared in December 2021 and dependent upon the pandemic and club guidance and restrictions. North Derbyshire’s largest market town is perhaps most famous for the distinctive Crooked Spire that dominates its skyline. Stories abound as to why it twisted, but its unusual shape is thought to have been triggered by green timber covered with heavy lead tiles. Whatever the truth, the base of the spire … Continue reading Shots @ Chesterfield 2022

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 Β£18 adults. Β£21 for a seat, absolute joke from a village club. There’s segregation too following a bit of unrest when they hosted Southend. πŸ€” This will be … Continue reading Kings Lynn FC (away)
