Hampshire football woes continue 2 May 2013

Troubled Aldershot Town FC has today been placed into administration, five days after relegation from the Football League.

Carl Jackson and Paul Goddard of Quantuma Restructuring have been appointed joint administrators.

A press statement from Quantuma confirmed the appointment and said it was “currently reviewing the club’s financial affairs”.

The announcement comes a week after fellow Hampshire side Farnborough FC went into administration.

A statement from Aldershot Town on Monday said that the “company is currently seeking restructuring advice.”

The club’s chief executive, Andrew Mills, resigned on Wednesday, over “the recent actions and subsequent lack of communication from the club owner and major shareholder Kris Machala.”

Club owner Machala had reportedly been set to hand over majority control to chairman Shahid Azeem, provided that Azeem was able to satisfy an immediate cash requirement.

Aldershot Town failed to pay its players during April, with Mills saying he had been placed in “an untenable position.”

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.

Administrators Quantuma will hold a press conference at the clubs ground on 3 May 2013 at 2pm.
