    Aldershot Town and the Small Claims Court

    I've just spoken to a lawyer about a claim against Aldershot. He was interested that I would want to claim the full cost of my ticket on the basis that Aldershot knew about the floodlight issue before kick off and went ahead anyway. My justification for this is that I can't be sure I will be...
