|Waving the flag for Aldershot Town.|
Ignoring the "AFC" clubs (they will be featured later - adding the AFC prefix is like calling yourself AAA Man & Van so that you can be first in the newspaper classifieds...), first up are Aldershot Town. I've not posted the best photo from the Recreation Ground - instead, I've featured the one which I thought summed up the fans there the best - it's blurry, but all the better for feeling the fans' energy. The whole of the East Bank Terrace crackles with banners and flags on a match day - the soul-sucking control freaks at Wembley Stadium would laugh at them for not charging £1,500 per banner, but I know where I'd rather be...on the best terrace with the second-loudest fans in the county.
*2013/14?! Isn't that a date far into the future? Shouldn't we be dressed in tin foil suits and be travelling everywhere by jet pack by now? Forgive me if I still think it's 1986 around here. Must be because I just bought the new Pastels album this week...
