Aldershot Town Enter Administration Following Tumultuous few Days at Club

May 2, 2013

Aldershot Town have gone into administration just one day after Andrew Mills resigned from his post as CEO and the Head of Media Graham Brookland slammed majority shareholder Kris Machala.

The side were relegated to non-league football after a 2-0 defeat to Rotheram on the last day of the season saw them finish bottom of League Two.

Quantuma Restructuring were appointed as administrators on Thursday and a press release said Quantuma were ‘currently reviewing the club’s financial affairs.’

The news comes after the club failed to pay the players their wages for April and CEO Mills stepped down because Machala had made his position ‘untenable.’

Brookland followed Mills’ resignation by describing Machala as ’erratic.’

Chairman Shahid Azeem had previously said he would not allow the club go into administration but this has not been the case and the club face an uncertain future ahead of their season back in the Conference.

Aldershot Town were formed in 1992 after the old Aldershot FC were wound up in the High Court.
