Aldershot Town’s administrators have confirmed they are confident that the club will be playing Conference League football next season.
In an update released to the media today, Carl Jackson and Paul Goddard, insolvency practitioners at Quantuma Restructuring and joint administrators of Aldershot Town FC, said “positive strides” have been made to secure the future of the club.
The statement said: “Discussions continue with genuine potential buyers, and we hope to issue a further update on this shortly.
“Let us reiterate that our ambition remains to find a buyer, and we are now working beyond the initial deadline of 8 June in order to get the club out of the difficult and upsetting situation it finds itself in.
“We would like to encourage fans to purchase season tickets for the 2013/2014 season. During the administration, the monies received will be held in a separate trust account and will only be paid out to the club on a match by match basis through the season.
“In the event the club were to be unable to fulfil all of its fixtures next season, the balance would be refunded to fans.”
The administrators also called on fans to “remain patient” during the ongoing insolvency process.
The club was formed in 1992 after predecessor Aldershot FC, founded in 1926, resigned from the League and were wound up in the High Court.
Aldershot Town lost its last game of the season 2-0 to Rotherham, sealing its relegation from the Football League.
