Nationwide Conference

The Cards visit our Hampshire neighbours for this local derby tonight. The Shots are currently 9th in the league following 2 defeats in their last two games.

LAST SEASON

Season 2005/06 was disappointing for the Shots after their previous exploits in the Conference National. A devastating catalogue of injuries, added to the newly implemented transfer window, ensured that manager Brown was unable to sign players on a permanent basis throughout the season barring January. In total 47 players represented the first team including 14 loan signings and the balance was never right. One of the highlights was an FA Cup second round appearance at home to Scunthorpe United; the Shots narrowly losing 1-0. The thirteenth position was the first time a lower half of the table position had been experienced. The end of the campaign saw Terry Brown retain seven players including two teenagers in Dave Winfield and Ryan Scott whilst also adding twelve new players to the squad in preparation for this season.


RESULTS SO FAR

The Shots started the season well. Their form dipped a little mid season, but they have still lost only 4 home games this season, as opposed to 9 away. John Grant is currently the top goal scorer with 11 goals. They have lost their last two games: 2-0 away at Tamworth a week ago and 2-0 again on Saturday, this time at the hands of York City at the Rec. Craig Farrell opening the scoring for the visitors on 25 minutes and Emmanuel Panther made sure of the points with a late strike.


THE ALDERSHOT SQUAD

Terry Brown can look to John Grant up front to score goals, along with former loanee Johnny Dixon. Former Halifax striker Grant joined in the summer after scoring 14 goals in 54 appearances. Experienced target man Marcus Gayle also signed from Brentford, following spells with Wimbledon, Watford, and Rangers. Talented left back Darren Barnard and keeper Nikki Bull are players to look out for. Anthony Charles has re-joined on loan for the rest of the season from Barnet.
