Re: Aldershot Town 1-2 Woking | Match Highlights

The best players make what they do look simple and easy Most players would have tried to control the ball and by which time a tackle would have come in Exactly that - its speed of thought to identify the opportunity that a first time pass will create and the technical ability to then carry it out. ...

Re: Aldershot Town 1-2 Woking | Match Highlights

Amused that the highlights start with Napa getting one in the spuds and doing a neat little roly poly! Ugly goal to give away as Reid turned his back on the cross and Ross really shouldn’t be letting that go that close across in front of him. Our goals were good finishes on good passes. Why did Coop...

Chike Kandi, comes on as a substitute and makes a massive impact for Aldershot in their defeat against Woking!!!!!!!

Someone had to get it on here.
Wasn’t Kandi rather skinny when he played for us?

The Chris Rivett chap is down as a consultant for the South Bend Lions semi-pro ‘soccer’ team - the owner (Kettering Town’s owner) states that Rivett was instrumental in the choice of where to set the club up.

Final Third Sports Media is run by a Chris Rivett, who has a Wikipedia page saying he has been involved in a number of non-league football clubs. That company also seems to be involved in PR and programmes work for various sports clubs and bodies, but as it’s a PR company you can’t believe the hype ...

Re: Club Statement: Prospective Investors

I don’t think they’ll be moving the club. Woking’s location must be an attraction for any potential investor. Worst case scenario..... Is there anything stopping them buying Guildford City, merging the clubs into our pyramid position but with a ground in Guildford? The megalomaniacs at Surrey Uni p...

Interesting. Looks like Katz is the doer and Volpe has the equity fund money somewhere - it's unclear which entry on his linkedin would be the vehicle to invest in a sports team. Final Third Sport LLC does exist, but not much information on Dun & Bradstreet in the way of trading history. Doesn't ap...
