Kabongo Tshimanga - Unattached to Oxford City.

Blimey I had to look him up, 2 appearences for us in 2015.
Don't remember him at all
[/quote]

One of two MK Dons academy strikers to play for us that season. The other was Giorgio Rasulo who came back for another spell the following season. Kabongo had some skills but was far too lightweight and spent most of his loan warming the bench. He was at Boston United for most of last season.

Rasulo has recently been released by MK Dons.

The sad passing of one of our former players from around 1959 :- https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/44757890
Alan Gilzean played for AFC when he was stationed here during his National Service time. He played a few games for us but never for the 1st team.

Very sad news indeed. I can remember Alan being a formidable striker and partner of Jimmy Greaves. I didn't know the Shots' connection so many thanks for that. RIP Alan Gilzean and my thoughts are with his family at this terrible time.

My late brother was a big Tottenham fan and very little would ever wind him up. However for some reason if I ever referred to Alan Gilzean as “Baldy Gilzean” due to his thinning hairline, it would always set him off!

I remember a newspaper article when he signed for Spurs which said (not word for word you understand) 'From Dundee to Tottenham for £72,500 and he couldn't even get into Aldershot's first team. How they could do with him now'.

Sadly Tristan and brothers are almost non existent on t.v they really contribute very little. Guess his football will gradually go the same way, great shame really as the potential was there but as mentioned above he got homesick.Another player who might have been.

Bitton? Wow I used to play for them. Probably shows how far Plummer has dropped as opposed how high a standard I used to play!
