SHOTS ON TV
A (meagre) list of Aldershot matches featured in match highlights on TV, no doubt incomplete or more than possibly inaccurate. Any corrections or more info gratefully received!
From about 1986 onwards the goals from some Aldershot games were shown on either Meridian/TV South or BBC South Today.
This list is of games that were feature matches with more than just basic goal coverage. Going back into the dim and distant past I believe there is cinema newsreel coverage of the Shots FA Cup 5th round game with Derby County at the Baseball Ground in 32-3, and I have seen a fleeting glimpse on TV of a wartime fund raising friendly game between Aldershot and an FA X1 from 39-0. In 1954 to celebrate the Centenary of Aldershot the BBC also covered a friendly game between the Shots and the Army.
I would love a copy of any the above mentioned games or those listed below except those marked in Blue, if you can lend me a VHS tape...
Please drop me an e-mail!
