Aldershot Town return to action at the EBB Stadium tomorrow when we host SkyBet League One Hampshire rivals Portsmouth in a pre-season friendly.
We go into the fixture with a sense of intrigue and new beginnings as Danny Searle and his newly-assembled squad prepare for the 2019/20 National League season.
It will be Searle’s first experience in the home dugout at the EBB Stadium and we hope that as many fans can get down and create a welcoming atmosphere for him, his backroom team and all the members of his first team squad.
Tickets are priced at £10 Adults and £5 Concessions for the fixture which will have a 7:30PM Kick Off. We expect bright and balmy weather and the East Bank bar will be open from 6PM when the turnstiles open.
Portsmouth last visit to the EBB Stadium turned into a famous win for the non-league Shots as we dumped them out of the FA Cup 1st Round following Mark Molesley’s late winner in a 1-0 Replay win live on TV back in 2014.
We’re also pleased to announce that 2019/20 Season Tickets will be available to collect at the fixture, these can be collected just as you enter the ground in the Club Shop on the High Street.
Portsmouth fans are advised to enter the ground through turnstiles 11 and 12 via Redan Hill through the park. Portsmouth fans will be allocated the South Stand and South Terracing (The Slab).
The Shots have had an unbeaten start to pre-season, winning against Badshot Lea (3-0), Haringey Borough (4-0) and Wingate & Finchley (3-0). Meanwhile Portsmouth, who lost to Sunderland in the League One Play-Offs last season are also unbeaten in pre-season beating University College Dublin (11-0), Havant & Waterlooville (2-1), Bognor Regis Town (2-1) and Stevenage (1-0).
