A SELLOUT crowd of 5,297 at The Laithwaite Community Stadium saw Woking complete a festive double over neighbours Aldershot Town on New Year’s Day to enhance their Vanarama National League promotion credentials.

The Cards had won 2-1 in Hampshire on Boxing Day, and then thumped the Shots 4-1 in the return on Sunday thanks to two goals – including a penalty – from Rhys Browne and one strike apiece from Jim Kellermann and Pádraig Amond.

Ex-Woking player Inih Effiong scored for Town to add to the goal he notched against the Cards on 26 December.

And for the second time in two derbies, Woking had a player sent off. This time, Jermaine Anderson saw red.

In the wake of the latest win, the Cards tweeted: “Woking are massive.”
