Scott Donnelly scored a goal in each half as Aldershot won their first match since the season's opening day with victory over Accrington.
Donnelly drilled home from the edge of the box early on and Marvin Morgan made it two after Accrington keeper Alan Martin parried Kirk Hudson's shot.
The visitors got back in the game just after half-time when Phil Edwards bundled home a John Miles corner.
But Aldershot sealed the win when Donnelly curled home from 18 yards.
Aldershot manager Gary Waddock told BBC Surrey:
"The club will be a sadder place, he (John McGinty) was a lovely, lovely man. That was for you John.
"I wanted us to win for him, I'm just delighted we've been able to do that. It's the right way for him that we finished the day with a victory for him.
"I didn't really care about the performance to be honest, I just wanted to get the win for John."
