Portsmouth Football Club to face the Shots in a pre-season friendly
Aldershot Town will face fellow Hampshire team Portsmouth FC in a pre-season friendly match on Wednesday 1st August.
Portsmouth, who are managed by Michael Appleton have seen a dramatic downturn in their fortunes over the last few years, coming from FA Cup success in the Premier League in 2008 to their disappointing end to last season which saw them drop into the third tier for the first time since 1983.
Both Pompey and Shots supporters will recall matches between the two clubs from the days when both teams were in the old Fourth division. The teams also played each other several times in both League and FA Cup, The Shots beating Pompey 3:1 at Fratton Park in a second round encounter in 1982, the last time the 'old' Shots played the south coast side. August's upcoming match will give both clubs and fans an opportunity to remember old times and renew friendly rivalries.
Entry prices will be £10 and £5, kick-off 7.45pm.
Much like the game against AFC Wimbledon, a week later I think, I would say that I am very much up for this friendly and hope to be able to make it.
Of course I will go if I can justify the travel costs involved from Devon for a pre-season game...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
