Aldershot v ECFC

Thursday, 26th December
Football League
Aldershot (away) lost 2-0

The home side adapted themselves better to the difficult conditions on a snow-covered pitch and earned victory with two goals by centre-forward Jack Howarth-one in each half.

City failed to take their chances, and although we made more determined efforts in the last 15 minutes we could not pro duce the brand of football which the bustling Jimmy Melia (Aldershot's £10,000 signing from Southampton) injected into his top-of-the-table Aldershot side.
