The Shots take their travels up north as Tommy Widdrington’s Shots take on York City at the LNER Community Stadium.

Following a run of three victories, the last two at the EBB Stadium, National League manager of the week Tommy Widdrington looks to make it 4/4 as he travels to York. The Minstermen are currently sat 23rd in the National League table, and rank 23rd for their home record, having won just 3 times at the LNER Community Stadium over the course of the 2023/24 season.

Shots will be looking to add to their record of scoring first in 5/6 last games, whereas York will be looking to their record of conceding first in 6 of the last 8.


The Shots were denied all the points last time they met York at the EBB Stadium. Captain on the day Aaron Jones gave the Shots the lead in the first half thanks to some wonderful build up with Jack Barham, and desptie controlling the game on the day Linell John-Lewis scored in the 92nd minute to give the Minstermen a point to go home with.

It was a similar tale at the LNER Community Stadium, but the shoe was on the other foot at the end of last season. Haji Mnoga gave the Shots an early lead, but two goals from York saw them in the driving seat until added time, when Tyler Frost poked home from a corner to give Tommy Widdrington a point to go back to Hampshire with.

The Shots have a good record against York, unbeaten in five National League meetings, winning twice and drawing three, and haven’t lost to the Minstermen since 2012, when York beat Aldershot in League Two.


The point at the EBB Stadium was York’s second of the season, and the side wouldn’t taste victory until a convincing 3-0 win over Southend on September 16th. The side progressed through the FA Cup until the second round, where they met Wigan at the LNER Community Stadium and were beaten 1-0. It was a different story in the FA Trophy, as they were eliminated by Nantwich Town in the third round.

The side have continued to struggle in 2024, picking up three wins against Oxford, Gateshead, and Southend since the turn of the year.



Currently in charge of the Minstermen is former Shots captain Adam Hinshelwood. The former centre back made appearances for the Shots in 2009/10, as well as playing for Brighton, Lewes and Wycombe during his playing days.

He made the transition to manager in 2011 with Selsey, before going on to manage Worthing and Hastings United. In 2017, he rejoined Worthing, and guided them to the National League South, where Worthing currently sit in 3rd, with current Shots Tommy Willard on loan.

In 2024, it was announced that following the depature of Neal Ardley Adam Hinshelwood would take over at the LNER Community Stadium.
