“Aldershot”. Everyone’s heard of Aldershot. Go up and down the country on trains like I do and speak to other fans on their way to or coming back from games, they remember or know of Aldershot or as it is these days, Aldershot Town. And the way things have become, I feel more and more disorientated, disillusioned and disinclined to fork out for a season … Continue reading Who do you support, then?
Most people know my anti-Searle stance. I know I’m not in the minority either but today really isn’t a day to be banging on about that. The swift addition of a new goalkeeper certainly contributed to this win over Notts County. To win is one thing but to keep a clean sheet in the process is just as satisfying, yes? I followed the proceedings on … Continue reading Aldershot Town 1-0 Notts County
To start this analysis I want to REWIND forty years. I was a mere slip of a thing and had been taken to a few Aldershot away games with my now late uncle. It was 1980 and the start of a new season in Division Four and it was Wigan away. One of the first few fixtures too, back end of August and we’d been … Continue reading The Morning After: Shots FA Cup Exit
Amicable my backside! 🤣 Anyway this was how we lined up today. Matt Jarvis. Remember him? Not so long ago he was in the same West Ham team as Stewart Downing. McCormack starts for us and it looks a strong front three. The strong two below were watching from the States, Orlando to be exact and they agreed that this happy snap could be shown … Continue reading FACup: 4th Rnd Q – Aldershot Town Vs Woking
At this time of the year it’s often said that Wynter is upon us. And it came early as Eastleigh gave us an icy blast by equalising late on and snatching a share of the spoils at the Silver lake Stadium. A couple of glaring issues from last season are still haunting us: conceding needless free-kicks and not seeing games out. Chesterfield at home last … Continue reading Eastleigh 2-2 Aldershot Town
ALDERSHOT TOWN returned to winning ways in fine style tonight at the Crapple… sorry, small keyboard… Crabble Stadium. Pre-match, boss Danny Searle had said it was “imperative” that we got something from tonight’s game. So I thought a point was maybe the plan and even that would have been an improvement from Hartlepool and Sutton. But maybe he had something up his sleeve after all … Continue reading Dover 0-5 Aldershot: Match report
All a buzz for our first home match of the 20/21 season with the Shots Live Stream up and running, if there is radio commentary I’ll find it and update this post live via the Shits Twitter feed. Early questions of course to include WILL WE SEE MCCORMACK? and WILL ALFY START? I like the digital match programme idea. All football league and non leagues … Continue reading Aldershot Town 1 – 2 Sutton United
Here we are again. An unusual start to the season with no fans allowed into open air stadia yet I can fly among 300 people in an aeroplane. Buffoon Boris. But then, if you employ a clown, you usually acquire a circus. Now we’ve got the live stream initiative plus Rob Worrall’s dulcets on BBC Radio Surrey. He will be at Victoria Park alongside Alan … Continue reading Hartlepool United 2, Aldershot Town 1
Aldershot Town have today announced that they will offer a live streaming service for the upcoming season to give all fans of the club – and any away fans – the chance to watch matches played at The EBB Stadium. Details of how this will be accessed by fans will be announced in due course, but Aldershot Town have called upon the services of two … Continue reading Live match EBB streaming and 2020/21fixtures
You were there – how did you see it? Was Tommy Langley’s goal-bound effort over the line or not? Some games from yesteryear retain “turning points” and this game was no exception in front of a crowd of just over 6,000. Some footage of the goals from Sunderland’s only ever visit to the Recreation Ground. Names like Tommy Langley, Steve Berry (played for both clubs … Continue reading Did it cross the line or not?!
