There have been plenty of news stories around Aldershot Town's division in the past few days.

In particular a managerial change, FA Cup exits, and another club showing huge goodwill to the team they knocked out of the world's best-known cup competition.

Gary Waddock's Shots - who were knocked out of the Fa Cup by Eastbourne Borough last weekend (October) - prepare to face Torquay in Devon on Saturday (October 22) and then face another tough trip, this time to Dagenham & Redbridge on Tuesday (October 25).

If you haven't been able to keep up to date with the goings on, here's some highlights for you.

FA Cup shock

Wrexham suffered a shock reverse to Evo-Stik Northern Premeir League First Division South side Stamford AFC in the FA Cup fourth qualifying round.

Lee Beeson’s penalty right on the stroke of half time and Kern Miller’s superb volley on 77 minutes put Stamford firmly in control.

The Dragons fought back to take the tie into extra time, thanks to Shaun Harrad on 86 minutes and then Jordan Evans in stoppage time.

Momentum seemed to be with the hosts, but a 103rd minute Jake Duffy strike sealed the Daniels place in the First Round proper for the first time in their history.

Goodwill from one Leigh to another

Cash-rich Eastleigh donated the match proceeds from their FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round win over to their lower league opponents, North Leigh.

The gesture was made by Spitfires chairman Stewart Donald, whose company sponsors the Evo-Stik League Southern Division One South & West outfit.

Eastleigh, who reached the Third Round last season, won 6-0 in a game attended by 889 spectators and it is good to see that chivalry and help towards others exists in football.

The club earned £12,500 prize money for reaching the First Round.

McNamara moves upstairs

Former boss Jackie McNamara has moved to a new role as chief executive of the club after vacating the managerial role now taken by Gary Mills.

Mills will be assisted by Steve Torpey.

McNamara will focus on all operational aspects of the club with specific attention paid to the development of a communication strategy, effective both internally and externally, administration management, aspects of the academy, as well as the Foundation and commercial roles.

His job is also believed to include the financial aspects of the playing budget.

A club statement read: “It is imperative that we support the new first-team manager by taking away the non-playing issues so he can focus on results."

Jacko and Rovers sing from the same hymn sheet

Tranmere Rovers have started something by turning to Michael Jackson to fill the assistant-manager job to work alongside Micky Mellon.

Current backroom staff members Paul Carden, who took over as boss temporarily when Gary Brabin was told to beat it and Shaun Garnett will continue their roles at the club as first-team coaches.

Jackson is no stranger to Prenton Park, having served the club over two spells as a player, making more than 100 appearances and scoring eight goals.

He moved into coaching and has worked alongside Mellon at Shrewsbury Town for the past two seasons, helping The Shrews to promotion into League One.

Coach of Year at Woking

Chris Sexton was the talk of the town after being recognised at the Woking Sports Awards.

He was voted Active Surrey Coach of the Year 2016 for his work at Woking, having been involved with the club’s Community scheme for more than 10 years. He works hard to introduce new initiatives and engage new groups.

This year has seen him pass his UEFA B Licence, assist Woking College in the coaching of their football teams and has taken on the role as coordinator for the U9 to U16 ages groups in addition to coaching one age group himself.

Lynchpin

Chester have snapped up goalkeeper Alex Lynch from Welsh Premier side Bala Town.

The 21-year-old, who hails from Holyhead, joined Bala from Wycombe Wanderers.

He was picked up by Peterborough United early in his career and enjoyed a two-year scholarship, followed by a one-year professional contract.

Histon, Stamford AFC and Brackley Town were all on his roster before he joined Wycombe in 2014.

The U17 and U19 Welsh international made four appearances for the Chairboys, playing in the League Two play-off semi-final against Plymouth Argyle and against Aston Villa in the FA Cup Fourth Round.
