    I think there is still hope providing the deadline can be further extended. My colleague, who is an Arab and an ex Sandhurst graduate is willing to come to an arrangement with AFC. Should both parties agree to the arrangements then my colleague said AFC has a very bright future for years to come.
    Kind regards

    An excellent article. Great coverage for a little team like Aldershot, and well researched facts that have explained our situation far better than the administrators or even our own club – Thank you. Also its nice to get the recognition of the poor treatment of fans re the 50k fundraising initiative. The new board has a job on its hands to not alienate the entire incredibly loyal support providing we survive long enough!

    It’s a bit late for AFC,as that club folded in 1992 makzy! As for ATFC ‘The Phoenix’ that rose from the ashes the same year, really is tottering along like an aged camel, for which the only kindness is to administer the coup de grace – something that an Arab ex-Sandhurst graduate would understand. As he has no doubt witnessed many decrepit camels at the roadside, from the luxury of his air-conditioned Landcruiser! The best outcome for football in Aldershot is a fresh start, under fans ownership. If the present bid is successful, ATFC will be back in trouble inside 12 months. It is written in the stars. As-salam alaykum.
