Aldershot Welcome Two Supporters To The Board
Wed 16th Apr 2014 | Football Club Management
Aldershot Town have welcomed two long-standing supporters to the Board of Directors.
Brian Bloomfield and Andy Muckett have been invited to join the club’s Board bringing with them experience in sales, marketing and financial management alongside existing directors John Leppard, Russ Howell, Tony Knights and John Denning, and Chairman Shahid Azeem.
Andy Muckett, founder of Aldershot accountancy firm AKM Associates, said: “I am extremely proud to have been invited onto the Board of Directors. Having been involved with the club for a number of seasons as a sponsor, and more recently supporting the Board in terms of providing financial reporting, it is apparent that the club plays a vital role within the local community.
“Shahid Azeem’s vision to develop deeper and more inclusive community ties is one that I fully embrace, and I am very excited to have the opportunity to be a part of this future. I believe that the Board has a great range of skills and experience to keep the club on track both on and off the pitch for many years to come.”
Brian Bloomfield’s appointment also underpins the club’s long-term plan to become not only a community club, but also to involve supporters with the necessary skills to help the club prosper. A supporter of the club since 1976, Brian will bring experience in sales and marketing, finance and commercial, having been a regional director for one of Britain’s major house builders.
He said: “Following an approach from the club, and after various discussions, I am pleased and proud to join the Board of Directors at Aldershot Town FC. I see this as a privileged custodial position to serve the supporters in the best interests of the club, and to further its endeavour to cement itself as a fully-embraced community entity. After the difficulties of the previous year it is important that the club moves forward with the supporters at its centre to fulfil both its goals and aspirations.”
Chairman Shahid Azeem confirmed: “Andy and Brian add extra strength, experience and expertise to the Board. We have known both of them for a long time – they are passionate supporters of this club and support our vision for the future.
“This is great news for the club and another boost ahead of a crucial week. We have three vital games left to confirm our Skrill Conference Premier status and I believe that the optimism around the club at the moment will help us to achieve our aims.
“I encourage all Shots fans to join us for the final 270 minutes of the season. Their support has been fantastic all year and I know that they can make a difference, against Salisbury City, Woking and Hereford United. We are very grateful for such fantastic support, which we saw once again at Macclesfield Town last weekend.”
