Under 11s Go FREE!

We are creating the next generation of Shots fans this season by allowing all children under 11 FREE admission when accompanied by a paying adult.

Adults can purchase their combined ticket from the Club’s main office on the High Street – they are not available direct from the turnstiles. Up to two children under 11 can gain free admission with each paying adult, priced between £13 and £19.

We have also launched the new Community Stand debenture scheme, which will donate over 4500 FREE tickets to young fans during 2015-16 through the generosity and sponsorship of charities, companies, community groups and individuals. To be part of this new venture – either as a sponsor or to claim your free tickets – email mark.butler@theshots.co.uk or visit http://www.theshots.co.uk/shots-debentures/.

Shots Set-Up Nepal Fund

Aldershot Town, in conjunction with Sahara UK and the Buddhist Community Centre UK, have established a fund to raise money to aid the Nepal earthquake relief programme.

Simply click here to visit the YouCaring.com page to donate towards a project which the Club will adopt to directly benefit the millions affected by April’s 7.8 magnitude disaster in which over 8000 people were killed. Every penny will go towards a project which brings the greatest benefit to Nepalese people.

Our initial target is £5000, to add to the £5200 raised from gate receipts and collections at the Chelsea v Liverpool Barclays Under 21 Premier League fixture at the ESS on 7 May.

We will post regular updates on this fund’s progress, and thank you in advance for any support you are able to give.

Shots Appoint Barry Smith As First-Team Manager

Aldershot Town are delighted to appoint former Dundee and Alloa Athletic boss Barry Smith as the Club’s new First-Team Manager on a one year rolling contract. 

The Club are also pleased to confirm that Caretaker Manager Chris Barker will remain at the Club, in the role of Player-Assistant Manager, alongside Coach Matt Gray.

41 year-old Smith brings seven years of managerial experience to the Electrical Services Stadium, backed by the highest coaching qualification in European football, the UEFA Pro Licence, a record of success in adversity and a reputation for developing young talent.

Barry left Scottish Championship side Alloa Athletic in March after leading them to the 2015 Petrofac Training Cup Final in a run which included semi-final victory against Glasgow Rangers.

Shots Chairman, Shahid Azeem, said: “Barry is ambitious, shares our desire to see entertaining football back at Aldershot Town, and has great experience of developing young players. I know supporters will join us in welcoming him to The Shots and we really look forward to working with him.”

Smith said: “I see Aldershot Town as a great club with the same aspirations as myself. I want to be successful and so does ATFC. It felt an ideal fit. The team are playing below par at the moment but if we have a great season we can get into the Play-Offs. We are looking to build a new squad, and we have to build slowly, but we want to put out a team that makes Aldershot proud.

“It would be a great achievement to reach the Play-Offs next season and ultimately we want to take the Club back to the Football League. The fans will be proud of this team, but we need everyone working together – the fans, the management and the team.

“We’ve got a great pitch out there and it’s one that deserves good football. I want to get the ball down and pass, we have to be positive and attack-minded in the way we play.”

Full interviews with Barry Smith, Chris Barker and Director Brian Bloomfield will be on ShotsTV this afternoon.

2015-16 is a vital season for The Shots, with a chance for the entire club to move forward into a bright future. Any club is only as strong as its supporters, and your support is always fantastic, home and away.

But our home must be our fortress and we need to create the sort of passionate atmosphere which roars the team to victory and got us all hooked on this unique club in the first place. We did not choose Aldershot Town, it chose us, and we need that renowned Shots spirit on the terraces as much as in the dressing room.

Together we can achieve something special. We value every fan and, whether a long-standing or first-time season ticket holder, want YOU to be part of our team for 2015-16.

Chelsea Bring European Action To The EBB

Chelsea’s Under 21 side begin another exciting season at the EBB Stadium next Friday as they host Liverpool in Group A of the Premier League International Cup.

The match, which kicks off at 7.05pm, is the first of 10 fixtures confirmed so far for the Blues at the EBB Stadium.
