Aldershot Town Condemned To Non League
Aldershot Town were condemned to non-league football next season by Rotherham while the Millers assured themselves of promotion to League One with a 2-0 victory at the New York Stadium.
The Hampshire based outfit were formed as Aldershot Town in 1992 after Aldershot Football Club went out of business, the old club had been around since 1926.
Following successive non-league promotions Town made a comeback within the Football League in 2008, however their five-year stay ended on Saturday after they finished bottom of League Two, three points adrift of safety.
Aldershot manager Andy Scott confessed he has already begun making plans for next season. “We have a pre-season plan in place and we have players we want to bring in and we know the football and the formation we want to play” he explained.
The Shots skipper Ben Herd voiced his hurt on the club’s relegation and the right-back believes the club’s players have themselves to blame. Herd told The Shots Player “I didn’t stay at the football club last summer to get relegated, I would have never foreseen it. But ultimately we haven’t been good enough, collectively or individually, whatever you want to call it.”
