In March 1992, the town of Aldershot was without a football club after Aldershot F.C. became the first Football League team to fold during the football season since Accrington Stanley in 1962. Aldershot Town was born later the same year, and began life competing in the Isthmian League Division Three. Despite Aldershot Town playing five divisions lower than the Football League, the attendance for their first competitive fixture was higher than the old team's last home tie. Ten successive victories were recorded under the guidance of former player Steve Wignall and Aldershot won the championship by an 18-point margin.
In May 2007 Gary Waddock was appointed the new manager. The Shots finished top of the Conference National with a record 101 points, and were promoted to the Football League, for the first time since the club was reformed ending the season on an 18-match undefeated run. This Pieman was able to visit the Recreation Ground for a midweek fixture with Royston Town FC. The visitors put up a great fight against their high-flying hosts narrowly losing by the only goal of the match. This was the inaugural season for the phoenix club. The rest as they say is history!
