The Old Boys Return

ANTHONY Charles leads a significant ex-Aldershot Argyle contingent to their former home next Saturday for what he is calling “a massive game.”

Charlo, fellow defender Guy Branston, and coach Gary Owers have all served time with the Shots, who are one point and one place above the Pilgrims in the scrap to avoid relegation from the Football League following Argyle’s 0-0 home draw with Dagenham & Redbridge.

“I spent many a year there,” said Anthony, “I’m sure Guy and Gary have noticed that one coming up, and now it’s the next game.

“So we’ll take whatever we need to from [the Dagenham & Redbridge] game – the pros and cons – into next week’s game, which is a massive game because the two teams are in a tight position.

“We’ll see how we do away from home. There might be a little less pressure on us and, personally, I don’t think Aldershot have been great at home over the past few years.

“We have to set our target of going there and trying to get three points. If we can do what we have done in the last couple of games defensively, and create, we should be okay.

“It’s always been a tight league, especially at the bottom. At the moment, one point can jump you one or two spots; three points can take you three or four, maybe.”
