Vanarama’s Fanarama! The supporters have their say on 2019 – and what lies ahead in the New Year!

Shots supporter Ben Mitchell gives league sponsors Vanarama the full SP on the year, hopes for 2020 and why the club means so much to him!

In the blink of an eye we have passed the half-way stage. Where did it go! Sum it up.

In one word, better. Last season was really difficult for a number of reasons. It was always going to be a case of making the most of our reprieve and so far we have done that. Building blocks are being put in place for the future.

But what does 2020 look like?

More of the same is all I ask for. If there’s no fight against relegation come April, I’m happy.

If you can wrap one Christmas gift for Danny Searle, what would it be?

Some clean sheets. Keep more of them and a top half finish is possible!

Putting you on the spot – pick your National League title winner:

I said Notts County before a ball was kicked but I have to change my mind now and say either Solihull Moors or Barrow.

The Christmas and New Year calendar – love it or hate it?

Love it! How could you not? If you don’t then you are watching the wrong sport my friend!!!

What’s your high point of 2019?

The win at Woking early on this season. Late summer football, great support and three big points to spoil their party. What could be better!

Your most memorable away day this season?

Same answer. Although Stockport County away comes close. Can’t beat a good weekender in Manchester.

When did you first start following your club?

Around 17 years ago now. My local Sunday team were given free tickets to come to a game and I started on the back of that.

What makes the Shots so special?

Our community connection and dedication to support our military roots. It’s a special club.
