Tommy Widdrington’s Shots welcome Altrincham and the TNT Sports cameras as they continue their persuit of a top seven finish.

With a later kick off time of 5:30 the Shots will be looking to return to form following Tuesday’s game against Fylde, and face a tough test as high flying Altrincham come to the EBB Stadium looking to apply pressure to Barnet in third and Bromley in second.

Altrincham were founded in 1891, and will be making a 200+ mile trip down from their 7,000+ seater stadium Moss Lane. Also know as “the Robins”, Altrincham finished just above the Shots in 17th last season, securing their place above the Shots in the sides 1-1 draw on the final day of last season.


The Shots were defeated on the road at Moss Lane earlier in the season by Altrincham, but more than held their own in the game. One of the National League’s standout players Chris Conn-Clarke gave Altrincham the lead in the 24th minute, and the game remained 1-0 until half time.

In the second half, Cool, Calm, Cian stepped from the spot to give Aldershot a way back into the game, but a few minutes later Alex Newby scored to restore Altrincham’s lead. Newby’s goal was the last of the game, and Altrincham were victorious at Moss Lane.


Altrincham went on to beat Gateshead the Saturday after beating the Shots, but then when through somewhat of a down period as they were knocked out of the FA Cup by Oldham before drawing to Kidderminster and Oldham in the National League.

Including Gateshead Altrincham have won 8 games, including four in their last five against Barnet, Eastleigh, Solihull Moors and Rochdale. The side did exit the FA Trophy on penalties to Kidderminster.



In the opposite dugout to Tommy Widdrington tomorrow will be Phil Parkinson. Parkison was appointed manager of Altrincham in 2017, after Altrincham had been relegated to the Northern Premier League. In his first season at Moss Lane Parkinson guided Altrincham back to the National League North as champions, and almost went back to back, as his side were beaten in the National League North play-offs in 2018//19, before winning promotion via the play-offs in 2020.

As a player Parkinson built a strong connection with Nantwich, playing over 200 times and captaining a side which won the FA Vase in 2006, and also made appearances for Crewe, Reading and Port Vale prior to joining Nantwich.
