Callum Reynolds is looking forward to when his old side Boreham Wood visit the EBB Stadium on Friday, insisting he would like nothing better than "to smash them."
The defender left Meadow Park in the summer after four years there, during which time he won the Conference South as captain of the Hertfordshire club, creating a number of good memories in the process.
But now Reynolds is the captain of Aldershot Town and would like nothing better than to get one over his old side on Saturday, breaking a run of poor form in the process.
He said: "I have some very good memories there but I'd love nothing more than to smash them on Saturday.
"Beating them would kill two birds with one stone and hopefully it would be a big turning point in our recent run of games and hopefully it can kickstart us again for this season, hopefully we get a win and then we can look to the Trophy, winning just breeds confidence and we need to get into the winning habit again.
"Getting promotion with them was special, we went on a couple of cup runs, for the club they were good because they got to the first round and we had a replay against Carlisle a few years ago which was nice.
"We won a few local county cups too which were big for the club, but promotion was an unbelievable day.
"That day was probably one of the best days of my life, it was a great experience, some of the lads had never been promoted before and it was a big thing because some people never experience that."
The 27-year-old decided to leave the Wood in the summer, and the central defender cited one of the reasons he left was because the club couldn't offer him what he was looking for at this stage in his career.
He added: "I had a good time there, things changed last season with training days and I felt like I had a good run there but felt I was worth more than what they had to offer within their financial structure.
"They just couldn't offer me what I wanted, it's not like they had it in their financial budget and said no, so it was just that but I had a good time there and felt a fresh change was needed and I wasn't sure where I'd end up but I'm happy that I ended up here.
"Gary Waddock was a massive influence, I came down and had a chat with him and straight away he had me, I'd done a bit of research but everyone I spoke to had said good things about him, whether it was training or his management or games.
"He said to come down and check the place out and that Aldershot were on trial for me, so if I liked it that was good but if I didn't like it then that was fine.
"I came down, did alright and he offered a contract and I was happy to sign. "
