EBB Stadium/Recreation Ground
Aldershot Town v Northampton Town
Saturday, August 13th 2011, 3pm
By Paul Broadhead
(me and my 7 year old son) were looking
forward to our first league away game of the
season. Made even more interesting following
the Cobblers knocking Ipswich Town out of the
Carling Cup on the preceding Tuesday.
Despite a delay in the traffic on the M25, we
arrived at Aldershot about an hour before kick
off and parked in the pay and display in the
centre and took the ten minute stroll to
I'd read that it was a bit of a trek from the
main road to the away turnstiles and that they
were in the park. Otherwise it would have been
a struggle to find them.
Prices were about standard for League Two
(£26 for the 2 of us in seats). The
ground is old and has somewhat of a non-league
feel about it, although it did have character.
It does though, look a little odd, with no
stand or terrace behind one of the goals.
Programme was £3 which wasn't bad value
really and similar quality to Cobblers. My son
was disappointed that there were no pies which
he likes to try at each away ground. Big
queues at the toilets at both half time and
full time. The Shots fans behind the goal were
in good voice and were consistently behind
their team and the stewards were reasonable as
A great result for Northampton hanging on,
literally at times, to a one nil lead from the
first minute. A game we would certainly have
lost last season!
I didn't encounter many shots fans after the
game although one passing in a car as we were
walking back shouted 'good luck for the rest
of the season except when we play you!' which
was a nice touch.
Overall a good traditional football day out.
