Aldershot Town have appointed Lewis Scard, Iain Ross and Stephen Mallett to its Board of Directors.

The club had been working with all three new directors for the past year and are hoping that their appointment, along with their skill sets that they bring to the roles, will bring the club forward.

Speaking about their appointments, Chairman Shahid Azeem said: "We have been working very hard with Lewis, Iain and Stephen for some time, and are always looking for new investors.

"We are also looking at all the work that needs to be done to take the Club forwards.

"This is the culmination of a year’s work, in helping them to understand what the Club is all about.

"With their investment and skill-sets, we are very pleased to welcome all three new members to the Board."

But who exactly are the new directors? We have all you need to know about them right here.
