WATCH: Shots hang up their boots for microphones

As the Aldershot Town squad turned up for training on Monday morning (Jan 30), they were given a little surprise by manager Gary Waddock.

He told them top put their trainers on, get in the car and follow him.

So where would they be going? To Aldershot's Rock and Pop Foundation of course!

The team were then split into three groups where they took turns in learning a classic rock song, monitoring their colleagues' rehearsal and creating a marketing plan.

Beginning at 10:30, the three groups gave their final performance at 1pm.

The Rock and Pop Foundation decided Team C as the winners, but we'll let you watch and decide for yourself.

First up was Team A performing Sweet Child O' Mine by Guns N' Roses, lead by the charismatic Bernard Mensah.


Shortly afterwards Bernard Mensah told Eagle: "It was the best thing I've done all season

"I got an A* in drama when I did my GCSEs so I've always been an actor, I wanted to be Eddie Murphy when I was younger.

"It was my time to shine and I got to perform in front of the boys and the gaffer and now they know my hidden talents."

After them , Team B performed I Would Walk 500 Miles by The Proclaimers.


And finally Team C, performing Wild Thing by The Troggs.


Defender and guitarist for the day Callum Reynolds (second in from the right) told Eagle: "I loved it, really enjoyed it.

"I used to have guitar lessons when I was younger so it wasn't too bad for me picking things up.

"I don't like to blow my own trumpet but I was rocking it up there.

"We know Mensah's good on the vocals and you got what you see with Jack Gallagher like you do on the pitch, just consistent and done his job so it was a good all-round performance from the team."

Well, what do you think?

Not a bad effort but don't quit your day job lads!
