Aldershot Town

Currently Playing In:

Conference Premier

 

The Hampshire club was formed in 1926 and began their competitive football in the Southern League before their election to the Football League in 1932 .

Playing in the two lower divisions until removed in disgrace from The Football League in March 1992, the club had to start all over again with new management on and off the field, but loyal support from the town was important as the ‘new club’ started again at the foot of the Isthmian league.

Under the guidance of manager Steve Wignall, the new ‘Shots’ really lifted the dented morale of their supporters by two immediate promotions to the top division of the Isthmian League. Then further promotion was gained as Champions four years later in 1998, with managers Steve Wigley, George Borg and Terry Brown all contributing to the club’s steady preparation for the challenge of Conference football.

The choice of good managers reflects well on the club and it was Gary Waddock who actually took Aldershot Town back to The Football League where they enjoyed four seasons before dropping down to The Conference in 2013.
