'If It's Football, It's Vital'

A look at Aldershot, the Spireites next opponents

A brief history of the club

They had been in the football League since 1932,60 years later, 25 March 92 Aldershot F.C. went out of business and were obliged to resign from the Football League.

In response to the bankruptcy a group of supporters set up a new club, Aldershot Town which started in the Isthmian League Division Three,five levels below the division in which Aldershot F.C. had been playing.

The people of the Town rallied around the Club and were determined to get them back in the league, even though they had a huge Mountain climb. In their first season they played Conference neighbours Farmborough Town in the Hampshire senior Cup, just under 6,000 fans turned up,the passion from the supporters were unflappable. The average attendance at the Rec was 2090 with attendances at away matches often into four figures in a league where the average attendances the previous season had been 90.

Under the guidance of Steve wignall they achieved two promotions in their first two seasons. In 1998 this time under the guidance of George Borg they won the Division One title. The following season they won the Premier Division Title and also the Hampshire Cup.

In 2OO2-3 Manager Terry Brown won Promotion with the Club taking them to the Conference. In 2007-8 Waddock took over and his first season he took them to the Title and back to the Football League. What an amazing achievement, and they have firmly established themselves as a football league Club.

Team News

After a third defeat in a row, Manager Dean Holdsworth must decide wether to ring the changes after seeing his side lose 4-3 in midweek at Torquay after squandering a 3 goal lead. Guy Branston was recalled for his first league game of the season in the defence. Alex Rodman returned in midfield. Peter Vincent serves the final game. They are also without Ross Worner and Craig Stanley both with long term injuries.

A lot was expected of Aldershot this season, a bad start means they are currently in 20th place. Dean Holdsworth as been Manager since January 2011. He as brought stability to the team finishing the last Two seasons in mid table.
