ALDERSHOT: Aldershot Shots – 1960 Non-League. Closed after home meeting on 16th July though they rode 2 away challenges with the last one being a defeat at Eastbourne on the 14th August. Circa 1976 the Speedway Express reported that attempts to reintroduce the sport to Tongham had been tried but failed. I think the reason given was the concrete block under the start/finish area but there may have also been opposition from Reading under the 30 mile rule. The stadium is now under the Blackwater Valley bypass.
