Shots @ Barnet – 30 October, 2021

This game has a scheduled 5.20pm kick off time as it’s the chosen live National League fixture for BT Sport. As it’s on TV I thought I’d stay at home and watch it but most likely I’ll be going now. The last time I went it was a Tuesday night game about two years ago and not a pleasant experience. Barnet FC seemed to think … Continue reading Shots @ Barnet – 30 October, 2021

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

Shots 0 Spireites 2

As predictable as you like, the Shots stumbled to a first of many defeats of another season with The Clown fielding Phillips in midfield 🤔 and Edser in the back four. Jacob B-A has reappeared in our team 😮 while up front, to the casual fan even, two names you never heard of. Mind you there were other surprising scorelines across the National League with … Continue reading Shots 0 Spireites 2

Aldershot Town 1-0 Notts County

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
