Mo Bettamer-

The Aldershot number nine represents Libya at international level and worked his way up from their under 18s.


He started his club career at London Tigers and made a handful of appearances for a few other non-league clubs before moving to Libyan club Al Ahly Benghazi.


He returned to the UK and spent a couple of years out of football before joining Staines Town in 2016 where he spent two seasons making 82 appearances and scoring 39 goals. An impressive couple of seasons nearly earnt the striker a move to Salford City but the deal fell through and he ended up joining Braintree Town.


Following a stint in Essex he spent time at Barnet before joining Aldershot Town on a free transfer in October last year. The 27-year-old has scored six goals for the Shots so far this campaign.

Team News

Jak McCourt and Joel Taylor look to be back in contention after missing Saturday’s game due to niggles.


Rowe’s Thoughts

“We need to be focused on the turnovers tomorrow. We want to influence the game.


“I think there is space to influence the game how we want to. We’ve got to be good with the ball and brave. I’m sure we will.


“I’m impressed with how quickly this group has come together. The bounce back after Stockport and also the successive defeats which is hard to take.


“To come back and perform like that (at Barnet ) shows a lot about the group. "
