Aldershot Town are one of 22 teams who are involved in the inaugural campaign of the National League Football Academy.
12 clubs’ academies from the north and ten from the south will compete in the 2019/20 competition designed to promote the development of academies in the National League.
Each team in each division will play each other twice, once home and away.
The Shots are part of the South Division and played their first match against Bromley yesterday.
Teams such as Woking and Boreham Wood amongst many others still await the Shots youngsters in their regional division as they look to make an impact in the first season of the competition.
