Next in town: Wrexham

After the disappointment of Barnet and in truth it was fair play to a team that hasn’t conceded a goal for four games, our focus now is on Saturday and a chance to record our first home win of the campaign. Like Chesterfield, many of us would have expected them and Wrexham to be doing…

Barnet (Edgeware) 2 Shots 0

Barnet climbed into the National League play-off places as they extended their unbeaten run to six games with victory over Aldershot Town. Ephron Mason-Clark slipped in Wes Fonguck after half an hour for the best chance of the first half but Shots goalkeeper Mitchell Walker was equal to the effort. Barnet went ahead two minutes…

Non-league Day: 12th October

Non-League Day is a day set aside in English football where supporters of clubs playing at the highest levels of the game are encouraged to experience football at non-league level with which they may be unfamiliar. The idea was suggested in 2010 by James Doe. It is a non-profit and volunteer run initiative and is…

Hive a good feeling about this…

Close your eyes for a moment and you can imagine Parker off of Thunderbirds saying that… The first thing that came to mind though, on planning the journey for Tuesday night was… where exactly is the Hive Stadium? Where is Barnet? Is it in Edgeware? Ah there it is… Sort of between Watford and Enfield…

Shots away! ATFC earn third away win…

It’s one of those. You have the choice of spending another ¬£200 following the Shots (where you’re beginning to think you’re the jinx because they never win the games you do go), and Edgeley Park is one of those grounds I’ve been past but never been in. Then there’s this mini-heatwave, an end of season…

Stockport: So good, they named it once

For those of you heading off to Edgeley Park this Saturday, I’ve prepared¬† this little micro-guide, packed with info and featuring a video I’ve put together that includes a stadium tour and an intro to Stockport itself by interweb sensation Freda Chattington. Of course I’d love to be going myself but refuse to fork out…

The why’s and wherefore’s of our dwindling support

The original question on ShotsWeb asked why our attendance of 1,539 versus FC Halifax at the weekend was so low and 500 or so down in contrast to our opening home fixture. At first I thought it inconsequential but as the discussion gathered pace, I learned some interesting facts and figures that put some meat…

National League Review: Gameweek 10

Unbeaten runs have been halted and long waits for wins were scrapped as the National League churned out some intriguing results on Saturday afternoon. Chorley picked up their first win of the season against Stockport County. Chris Holroyd hit a first-half brace before a late goal from Elliot Newby lifted the Magpies off the foot…

ATFC 1-2 Barrow AFC: Optimism checked as Shots fail to deliver – yet again

Well let’s have it right (though I wouldn’t imagine an expansive queue of dissenters), today’s performance or ‘no show’ to use a finer description, on the back of a precious away win too, was just about as bad as it gets. I had reservations about over-optimism, particularly with Barrow’s recent performance at Woking in mind,…

National League – Gameweek 9 – live!

Seeing as our game at Barnet is off and I’m at home like many other Shots fans, I decided to do a live articel, updating the goals as they happen in GAMEWEEK 9. First off, let’s look at the fixtures tonight, info provided by the official VL website: Barrow vs. Hartlepool United Barrow are currently…
