Giorgio bags first senior goal

6 April 2016

Giorgio Rasulo scored his first senior goal in Aldershot Town’s National League clash with Grimsby Town on Tuesday evening.

The 20-year-old midfielder, playing on the right-hand side of midfield, latched onto Charlie Walker’s shot-turned-pass before firing past Grimsby keeper James McKeown from close range.

The strike put the Shots 2-0 up but they weren’t able to hold off the promotion-hopefuls, who came back to win 4-3 in a thrilling match in Hampshire.

Rasulo told Shots TV after the game: “It was nice to get my first senior goal but I’m very disappointed in the end result.

“I saw the ball going over to (Charlie Walker) and I just thought I’d gamble and make the run. Nine times out of 10 you don’t get the ball there but fortunately this time I did and I was able to slot it in the bottom corner.”

He continued: “I’m not a natural right-midfielder and since I’ve come here I’ve had to do a bit more defensive jobs. It’s been different but I’m definitely learning from it.”

Rasulo and Co remain 15th in the National League after Tuesday’s loss. They visit Halifax Town on the weekend.

On Monday night, Harry Hickford came off the bench to help Hemel Hempstead Town earn a point away at Wealdstone.

The defender replaced a former Dons loanee in Ibra Sekajja early in the second half and played his part as the Tudors’ kept their second successive clean sheet.

Hemel, who visit Eastbourne Borough on Saturday, are now just three points adrift of the play-off places with five games remaining.
