Aldershot Town Football Club have confirmed that as part of its continued restructure and refinancing, Kris Machala has decided to handover the Chairmanship of the Club and the Board to Shahid Azeem, with immediate effect.

Kris has been Chairman since July 2010 and will remain a major shareholder and a Board Director. Kris also has external business interests which require more of his time.

As new Chairman his priority will be to lead the Club through a period of financial restructure, including the attraction of the new investment needed to further the strategic aims of the Club.
