Shots @ Dagenham & Redbridge

It’ll probably be a grey day but in the sun and the rain, maybe brighter times lay ahead for us.We don’t want the embarrassment of being turned over again away from home. Our defence must shut up shop to the opposition forwards. I won’t be driving in my car around Primrose Hill or on a night boat to Cairo but will be on a train somewhere coming up from the sarf innit. The ShotsWeb forum has been essential reading in putting this together as near to the matchday as possible seeing as there are a few complications travel-wise. Ancient Shot … Continue reading Shots @ Dagenham & Redbridge

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 against Maidenhead United will see us hold our annual Remembrance Match in respect of our army, as it is our closest fixture to Remembrance Sunday. In preparation for our encounter with The Magpies, the local … Continue reading Next in town: Maidenhead United

Shots @ Boreham Wood

As much as I would love to be there Tuesday night, it’s logistically almost impossible. If I stayed to see the full ninety minutes, I would face a one and a half hour bus journey from Southampton, not arriving home until 02.30am! I don’t think anyone would not forgive me staying indoors for this one. I could go to the Poole Town v Hartley Wintney FA Trophy game which was a victim of the weather on Saturday but instead I will use the post for live score updates from our game and all the other news from the games in … Continue reading Shots @ Boreham Wood

On the road again: Harrogate Town FC

    Harrogate Town v Aldershot Town: Warren Burrell focusing on points not goals Harrogate Town’s Warren Burrell admits that he’d love to repeat his goal-scoring heroics of last season when Aldershot visit the CNG Stadium on Saturday, but insists that three points are the real priority.   The versatile 29-year-old, currently operating as a holding midfielder, netted a sensational 38-minute hat-trick from centre-half during the corresponding fixture in 2018/19, leading Simon Weaver’s team to a 4-1 success.   “I just managed to get myself in the right place and get on the end of a few good balls into … Continue reading On the road again: Harrogate Town FC

Danny Searle interview (Non-league Daily)

Of the Vanarama National League’s young managers, Danny Searle’s coaching experience stands especially strong, even though this is his maiden full season as a first-team boss. He believes attractive play can bear fruit amid the harsh land of this division, but while toiling away to help push Aldershot Town up the table, he wants to ensure no facet of the club is forgotten. Much has changed at Aldershot in the six years since the Shots were last a League club, and even since their National League play-off appearance just 17 months ago. For a club who hosted Manchester United in … Continue reading Danny Searle interview (Non-league Daily)
