My first game

Post by Cal_shots » Wed Mar 25, 2020 9:11 pm

Hi Darlo fans, I got talking to some friends about our first ever live football game we watched, and I am after a little help, my first match was around 95/96? And it was darlo vs Rochdale! I think the score was 2-0 and Robbie painter scored! Can someone help me with what year etc! It was my first ever football match as a young lad and got me into football! I now live away from the area and I am an aldershot town season ticket holder and have been for 10 years! Thanks

We didn’t beat Rochdale at home in 95/96 or 96/97. We beat them 4-0 at the end of the 94/95 season but Painter never scored

Maybe I am confused as to who darlo played then but it was 2-0 or 2-1 with painter scoring, sorry not much good I was young at the time!

That was my first game too! Saturday 5th October 1996, we drew 1-1. Attendance: 3,071 (From the 11v11 site)

I remember painter scoring and my dad lifting me up and painter slapping mine and other fans hands behind the goal. I thought it was 2-0 but you maybe right!

I've been to Aldershot once to watch Darlington, pretty sure it was around 2009 and we lost. The thing that struck me was the row of drummers, best I've ever heard at a footie ground.

Conversely my first ever football match was at Aldershot. One cold Tuesday night in winter 75.
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

Suspect the drummers would have been some of the military bandsmen💂‍♂️💂‍♂️💂‍♂️

Did we have much of a following that night? 😆

This match in 75 wasn't Darlo related, I think Aldershot back then were in Div 3, and I think they got relegated that season.

I used to live about 16 miles away from Aldershot and me and a school friend got a bus in, I remember it being a bit rough, lots of firework throwing and the odd scuffle, but exciting too.
