Hartlepool United 2, Aldershot Town 1

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

Live match EBB streaming and 2020/21fixtures

Did it cross the line or not?!

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?!

Ascot United 1, Aldershot Town 4

An Aldershot Town XI produced an optimistic display and a comfortable win at Ascot United this afternoon. Ascot, who play in the Combined Counties League Premier Division, arranged a free admission game for 125 spectators via an online booking facility and spaces were soon snapped up. The conditions were warm but blustery at the Racecourse Ground (the second one I’ve visited this year!) and I … Continue reading Ascot United 1, Aldershot Town 4

Ascot United away friendly, Sat 22nd August, 2020

ALDERSHOT TOWN have arranged a pre-season friendly away at Ascot United. Even at this short notice I have reserved one of the 125 available tickets through Event brite. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/ascot-united-fc-v-aldershot-town-fc-tickets-117703810265 Looks like the best pub will be The Stag. From there to the ground it’s a bit of a walk and uphill apparently so a taxi could be advisable. When you get there you will see … Continue reading Ascot United away friendly, Sat 22nd August, 2020

Next in town: Maidenhead United

Attentions now turn to home matters and Saturday’s game at the Recreation Ground with the Shots locking horns with Maidenhead United. I’ll be glad of a home game; at least I’ve seen us win – though just the once. Four visits to Torquay, Barnet, Chorley and Harrogate have yielded six hours of football, no victory and hardly a sniff of a goal. This Saturday’s game … Continue reading Next in town: Maidenhead United
