Taking Aldershot Town into League football

As any Aldershot Town fan will know, the club has risen from the ashes of Aldershot FC and has now established itself firmly in the Conference.

The financial problems that dogged Aldershot FC, resulting in bankruptcy in 1992, are long since forgotten and in the time since the formation of the new club, promotion has been achieved four times, most recently in 2002/03 when Aldershot returned to the top level of non-league football. Three seasons in the League have seen them twice miss out on promotion through the playoffs, but the 2007/08 season is going well and promotion looks to be a distinct possibility.

Aldershot Town are a great club with a loyal fan base - attendances this season are over 2,000 on average - and, rather than miss out on promotion once more, the fans deserve to see an Aldershot side return to the Football League.

If you would like the chance to help put Aldershot Town on the path to glory and have a say in the future of the club, then maybe The People's Club can help.

Aldershot Town - The People's Club?

The People’s Club are looking to sign up 40,000 football fans who are interesting in buying and running a real football club, which will be chosen by our members. We expect to bring in excess of £1,500,000 investment per season to the chosen club.

If our members choose Aldershot Town to be The People's Club, then what will we do?

Firstly, we'll bring much needed investment to the club in a number of ways.

You can expect gate receipts at home games to go up as members travel to see games and boost the attendance figures. Innovative commercial activities will bring in additional revenue and the very nature of The People's Club concept will naturally mean Aldershot Town will receive a massive publicity boost as the local and national media all monitor the success of the club.

Secondly, you, the fans, will run the club. You'll have the ability to vote on whether to hire or fire a manager, which players start each game each week and who is on the bench. As the transfer window opens, you'll be able to choose who we sign and who we transfer list.

We're giving you the opportunity to take Aldershot Town forwards - and, who knows, maybe one day we'll be boarding coaches to take us to Old Trafford, Stamford Bridge and Villa Park every other Saturday.

Most importantly, what we won't do is change Aldershot Town for the worse. We're all football fans and we fully understand the importance of the heritage and identity of the club and the feeling of belonging that each and every Aldershot Town fan feels. We certainly won't be relocating the team to Milton Keynes or mucking around with the club crest.

How will your membership help?

As politicians are fond of saying, your vote truly counts. The People's Club is built entirely on the concept that the fans know best and the collective decision making power that our members have will ensure success for many years to come.

At the moment, Aldershot Town is not The People's Club. It can only become so if you sign up and choose Aldershot Town as the club you think we should make a bid for once we have enough members and therefore enough funds to do so.

Register for free and select Aldershot Town as your choice for the club we should buy. Then tell all your friends about us - their votes count too! If Aldershot Town is one of the most popular choices, it stands a very good chance of attracting substantial investment.

We're also on the lookout for a representative in Aldershot to encourage fans to sign up, so please contact us if you think you can get enough fans behind you and make Aldershot Town The People's Club.
