Aldershot Town FC Appoint Three New Directors

Tue 22nd Nov 2016 | Clubs Ownership

Aldershot Town FC has appointed three new Directors onto its board, bringing decades of expertise and increased investment into the club.

Lewis Scard is joined by Iain Ross and Stephen Mallett, whom all have vast and varied business experience, on the board at National League club.

“We have been working very hard with Lewis, Iain and Stephen for some time, and are always looking for new investors,” said Chairman Shahid Azeem.

“We are also looking at all the work that needs to be done to take the club forwards.

“This is the culmination of a year’s work, in helping them to understand what the club is all about. With their investment and skill-sets, we are very pleased to welcome all three new members to the board.”

Scard has worked in recent years as a management consultant specialising in the creation and growth of businesses both in the UK and overseas. Prior to this activity Lewis spent 30 years in the management team at British Airways (BA).

A lifelong Shots supporter, Lewis said: “I see enormous potential in a club that sits in a huge and wealthy area of population, but it needs a product and a facility suited to 21st century needs and that will be something I will focus on.”

Iain Ross is an experienced international businessman with more than 35 years’ experience largely in the life sciences and technology sectors.

Iain’s track record includes multiple financing transactions, both publicly and privately, and is currently Chairman and director of a number of companies in UK, USA and Australia. “I am delighted to have joined the ATFC Board,” said Iain, who has recently become a shareholder in the club, “and look forward to using my contacts in the business sector to assist the club to achieve its ambitions both on and off the field.” 

Stephen Mallett is an economics graduate, Chartered Accountant and sports enthusiast, said: “It is a privilege and an honour to be have been invited onto the Aldershot Town Board.”

“These are exciting times for football and I can see great opportunities ahead for our club. Football is a team game and I look forward to contributing to the team that leads the development and growth of the club.”
