Statement From Aldershot Town Football Club


Aldershot Town Football Club announce that recent discussions and negotiations have resulted in a change to the clubs main sponsorship arrangements.

Ezylet are to step aside to facilitate EBB becoming Aldershot Town Football Club main sponsor for a period of two years starting 1st July 2008.

This means that for the next two seasons, EBB will be on the front of the Shots playing shirts and (by pre-existing arrangement) the home ground for the club has been renamed "The EBB Stadium at The Recreation Ground".

These are the most obvious visible signs of the sponsorship, which will be complemented by many other arrangements and initiatives around the club.

John McGinty, Chairman of Aldershot Town Football Club, said "We have secured sponsorship for the next two years, critical in the ongoing development of the club."

"EBB have a long term relationship already in place at the club and this elevates it to a new and exciting level."
