bad comment about Junior. he's a cut above a lot of strikers in this league, someone needs to actually WATCH these games and not just make a opinion based on whether or not he scores!!

i really do like junior, i really think some people are to harsh on him. his movement is second to none, he works hard and he does know where the goal is. he has popped up with some very important goals, scarbrough away sticks in my mind the most, great finish from the each of the box that earnt us a deserved point.


If we were to sign Aaron McClean then i reckon he would be a good signing. great pace and another one who knows where the goal is

Agree. couldn't get to the game last night but Junior does work hard during the games even though his strike rate doesn't reflect this. Been a few players who have missed sitters this season. Certainly wasn't complaining when Lee was out injured. Anyway theres nothing on the official website or the Aldershot website, so its all specualtion.

Taken from our local paper Aldershot News, it will be a shame to lose Arron cracking little player, surely he will want to stay in the conference which would make your lot favourites to get him


OUT-OF-FAVOUR Aldershot Town striker Aaron McLean is on the verge of a move to Essex with both Canvey Island and Grays Athletic staging a two-way battle for his signature.


IT could be all change up front for Aldershot Town on Saturday as boss Terry Brown waits to see whether an on-going deal for Aaron McLean will be sealed before the weekend, writes Rebekah Wheller.


As the News went to press on Wednesday, the boss confirmed that two clubs were vying for McLean’s signature, and the young striker had only to agree personal terms with the clubs.


Conference side Canvey Island are firm favourites to get the 21-year-old’s signature, although Conference South leaders Grays Athletic have been chasing McLean for some time and have the resources to outbid their Essex neighbours.


But while the pair battle it out for his signature with Brown open to offers, the striker is desperate to stay at the Recreation Ground, and fight for his first team place.


“The problem is the same as it always has been since I’ve been here and it is that players don’t want to leave the Rec, and I can understand that and appreciate that and we have to deal with it accordingly,” said Brown.


“Whether he will be available for Saturday I don’t know yet. I didn’t expect him to be here yesterday, I didn’t expect him to be here today but he is still here and if he is around on Saturday he will always do his best for the club.”


If a deal is done, however, it could mean the boss has just two strikers available for the trip to Morecambe, although Brown is working on strengthening the squad further before the weekend trip. It’s frustrating because until I’ve got someone out I can’t get anyone in.


“James Peters did well for us on Tuesday night but he is an Ash player. They kindly let him play on Tuesday, and have agreed to let him play again next Tuesday.


“I have also got an eye on the date because if we get someone in after February 15 we can keep them until the end of the season.


“Prior to that, we could get a really good player in, get in the Play-Offs then lose the lad,” added Brown.


There is no movement with the other transfer-listed duo, however. Chris Giles played in his regular centre-half slot in the GLS Cup victory over Exeter on Tuesday night, while Hugh McAuley has a hamstring injury and is receiving treatment in his native Liverpool.


McAuley, thought to be a target of former club Forest Green Rovers, is expected to be back in contention for the Shots on Saturday but Brett Johnson (back) and Dwain Clarke (calf) are likely to remain sidelined.


Despite that, the boss will have some of his key men back for the long trip up north having rested them from the action in the GLS Cup on Tuesday night.


“Hopefully the ones we’ve rested will have their batteries fully charged,” he added.


Those concerned are Jon Challinor, who endured a hard day’s night at the Rec on Tuesday and defensive duo Darren Barnard and Ray Warburton. Will Antwi will also be back in the line-up on Saturday alongside Tarkan Mustafa.


On the other hand, Martin Reeves picked up a knock on Tuesday night and is struggling to make the trip, and has yet to put pen to paper as Brown continues to negotiate with the youngster’s agent.


Brown is hopeful that his northern jinx has finally been broken after their 1-1 draw with Carlisle in December was followed up with a win at York City on Sunday.


Indeed, with two clean sheets in his last two games, the boss is hopeful his side have put their inconsistent form to rest.


Whilst Aldershot sit second in the form table with one defeat in their last seven league encounters, Morecambe have just one loss in their last nine —against York a fortnight ago.


These two sides fought out a thriller the last time they met, at the Rec in November, with the Shots leading the Shrimps 3-0 ten minutes into the second half.


But a thrilling fightback saw the visitors earn a point — as Michael Twiss, Danny Carlton and Wayne Curtis bagging the goals. Although a point was a disappointing result on the day, Brown will surely be happy to come away from Christie Park with a share of the spoils ahead of a tough, and busy month.


The Shrimps have been a hot topic in the news this week as they rejected a £50,000 bid for the Conference’s second top scorer Twiss, from his former club Chester.


Twiss has 16 goals to his name, and with other strikers Curtis and Carlton on 12 and 10 goals respectively, they have proven goal-scorers and Brown believes the side will be in the Play-Offs come May.


Brown said: “I think their squad is one of the strongest in the league and if we come away with anything I’ll be a happy man.”


l As the News went to press Terry Brown has announced he had added right back Phil Warner to the transfer list.


Warner, the former Southampton man, had failed to settle at the Rec this term and has been edged out of first team reckoning by the arrival of Tarkan Mustafa.


He is also available for loan along with youngster Tyron Smith, who has also had restricted opportunities at first team level.
