The Shots are back in action on the road, this time travelling to Oxford to take on Oxford City at the Raw Charging Stadium.

Some favourable mid-week results mean Tommy Widdrington comes into this clash with his side still inside the top seven, looking to pick up three points against the side he got his first three of the season against on the opening day.

His opponents are Oxford City. Promoted from the National League South via the playoffs last season, Oxford City are currently in their first season of National League football. The Shots will be travelling to their home ground the Raw Charging Stadium,


Oxford City kicked off their life in the National League by travelling to the EBB Stadium on the opening day of the 2023/24 season. Despite the host of new Shots in the side it was Jack Barham who opened the scoring, Haji Mnoga added the Shots second after Oxford had equalised moments before.

A new Shot got themselves a goal before the interval – one Lorent Tolaj arriving at the back post to convert to give the Shots a two goal advantage. After the interval there was another new man on the scoresheet, this time it was Josh Stokes as he further added to the Shots lead, before Lorent Tolaj made it an opening day brace for the Shots to make it 5-1. Oxford got one back in added time, but it wasn’t enough to deny Aldershot a sweet opening day victory.


The whole season has gone by since the Shots and Oxford City last met. The side are sitting 24th in the National League table with 28 points, and have won 7 games in their debut National League campaign. In the FA Cup fourth qualifying round they were sent to a replay by Scarborough Athletic, but were eliminated in the replay. The were eliminated by Chelmsford in the third round of the FA Trophy.



Ross Jenkins is currently in his first senior management role at Oxford City, and took charge of the side in March 2022, replacing David Oldfield. 32-year-old Jenkins turned out for Watford and enjoyed spells in Norway and Scotland before his career was cut short, and was the Head Coach of Velocity Football, Oxford City’s education programme prior to taking the Jenkins job. Oxford City’s Director of Football Justin Merritt said that “Ross has a great footballing pedigree and is fully aligned with our new vision to create a young player development model” upon hiring Jenkins.
