McDonnell on Target Again
Saturday, 7th Oct 2017 18:17
On-loan Blues midfielder Adam McDonnell netted for the second game running as Aldershot drew 3-3 away at Maidenhead in the Vanarama National League.
The 20-year-old, who scored his first senior goal since his Shelbourne debut in July 2014 in Tuesday’s 1-1 home draw with Dagenham and Redbridge, headed the Shots’ second of the game three minutes before half-time to give them a 2-1 lead. The Irishman was subbed on 74.
Blues defender George Fowler, who like McDonnell recently had his loan at Aldershot extended until the end of the month, was an unused sub.
Elsewhere, striker Kieffer Moore was subbed in injury time having been unable to add to his nine goals for the season as Rotherham won 1-0 at Rochdale.
The 25-year-old remains League One's joint-top scorer along with former Blues Brett Pitman, who yesterday was named the division's Player of the Month for September, and Jack Marriott, these days with Portsmouth and Peterborough respectively.
Right-back Josh Emmanuel, who like Moore is on loan with the Millers for the season but with Town able to cut the spell short in January, was an unused sub.
Central defender Chris Smith played the full 90 minutes as his loan club Chelmsford beat Eastbourne Borough 5-2 at the Melbourne Stadium in the National League South

Show ME, How You Do That Trick by Mullet
“It’s worth remembering the Championship is a really different prospect today, compared to when I invested 10 years ago.”
New Man, New Hope by SpiritOfJohn
As an occasional poet of the third rate variety, I have been scratching around for a few weeks trying to think of a rhyme or song to fit our new manager. Paul Hurst is hardly a name to get the creative juices overflowing, which is due to its no-nonsense shortage of syllables rather than his achievements in the beautiful game.
End of Season Grades by BlueBloke
Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
