Cambridge boss Jimmy Quinn celebrated his new contract in style as his side came from behind to beat Aldershot.
Aldershot broke the deadlock when Jonny Dixon ran on to a long ball and slotted home for his 10th of the campaign.
But Cambridge's pressure told on the hour when Lee Boylan headed home from six yards from a Darryl Knights cross.
Shots keeper Nikki Bull marred a fine display when his error from Stephen Reed's free-kick allowed Leo Fortune-West to tap-in the winner.
