The game marked the 20th anniversary of the previous incarnation of the club's liquidation and subsequent resignation from the Football League. The victory puts the Shots in the play-off hunt, providing the perfect tonic.
"It is fitting, seeing the guys that have been part of the history of the football club, but our history is in front of us and we'll keep pushing," said Holdsworth. "It's about being part of something special and we've had some good moments and we want more. We know what we have got in front of us, we need to keep level-headed. We're edging closer to that play-off position."
Peter Vincenti scored the only goal of the game to put Aldershot nine points behind seventh-placed Cheltenham as they look to sneak into contention for the play-offs. However, the former Newport County manager was quick to praise his side's defensive performance and challenged his defenders to push for more clean sheets.
"It was a bit frantic at the end but our desire to keep the ball out of the goal was fantastic," he added. "It was a great goal for us but I thought Guy [Madjo] should have shot before then but Peter [Vincenti] has done the right thing and kept on his toes and taken his goal well.
"We are showing such desire to keep that clean sheet, we have the third best defensive record in the league, and I said that wasn't good enough, I want the best, and 1-0 wins a game of football. It would have been unjust if we had conceded at the end."
