Shots seek 1973 stars

As several supporters have noted, this year sees the 50th anniversary of Aldershot FC’s first ever promotion, from the then Division 4 to Division 3.

It is the clubs intention to commemorate this event later this season and as such we would like to involved as many of the personalities involved in that team and invite them back to the club.

Our matchday announcer Craig Matthews is coordinating this event and is seeking the help of our supporters in tracking down some of those stars to hopefully get them involved.

As such, Craig would love to hear from anyone who can assist with contact details for any of the following: Harry Bennett, Joe Gadston, Jimmy Grummett, Steve Melledew, Trevor Pearce, John Stenson and Mike Travers.

If anyone can assist, Craig can be contacted at, by phone on 07985 197751 or pop up to the media box to see him at any home game.
