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

Tributes pour in for ‘marvellous’ Marvin

Former Football League footballer Marvin Morgan has shockingly passed away at the age of 38. Morgan became a fashion designer and respected campaigner in the twilight of and after his playing career, and numerous clubs and players have paid tribute after the sad news. He was primarily a non-league player throughout his 20-year career but represented Aldershot Town, Dagenham and Redbridge, Hartlepool United, Plymouth Argyle … Continue reading Tributes pour in for ‘marvellous’ Marvin

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)
