Aldershot Town’s Mark Molesley Has Already Produced The Greatest, But Most Bizarre Pre-Match Interview Of 2022

Aldershot Town manager Mark Molesley may have already taken the crown for most entertaining post-match interview of 2022.


Molesley spoke to the club's official Twitter account ahead of Saturday's FA Trophy clash against Bromley.

He was asked for his thoughts on the game and what followed was one full minute of Molesley chatting about haircuts, trees and penguins.


"If a tree falls and nobody is there to hear it fall, does it make a noise?" the 40-year-old begins.

"Does a penguin get cold? What way does your bath water go, clockwise or anti-clockwise when you pull the plug out? You know, these are questions that are going to be asked of us and the questions we need the answers to.

"We're always looking for solutions and need to solve the equation sometimes.


"Sam's had a lovely haircut, it's started to grow out now. Coops is here now, working silently away. Robbie's over there, the first time he's been quiet today.

"Terry's brought a briefcase in. He's got four Japanese talking dogs in there. This is what we work with and we'll continue to work hard."

The interview has quickly gone viral and fans online are cracking up at every word.


One commented: "I could only hear this in David Brent's voice."

Another said: "This guy is making himself England's answer to Eric Cantona."

While a third put: "Needed to be said and to be fair we've all been thinking it."

Aldershot are currently 17th in the National League but are hoping to have a decent run in the FA Trophy this campaign.


Molesley had three stints with Aldershot as a player, between 2006-2007, 2012 and 2013-2015 respectively.

He was hired as manager back in September and he was delighted to be making a fourth return, this time as manager.


The former Southend United boss said: “My dream came true when I became a professional footballer at this club and I would be lying if I never thought of going back to the club as a manager.

“I just think any success I have ever been involved in has been built around great people and speaking to the Chairman and seeing some familiar faces, I know that there’s good people at this football club who want the same things I do.

“My connection with the club is the reason I wanted to come back."
