Spare a thought for Aldershot Town

 

Football News 24/7
Whilst Bradford City and Northampton Town were battling for a place in League 1 spare a thought for fellow League 2 side Aldershot Town. Relegated to the Conference, the Shots now find themselves without most of their playing staff and an uncertain future.

The club's administrators, Quantuma Restructuring, have made 13 players redundant.

Quantuma Restructuring, who contacted the players on Wednesday, told BBC Surrey that "most of the players were out of contract in June anyway".

Shots manager Andy Scott, who was notified of the requirement for redundancies, remains employed along with his assistant Terry Bullivant.

Just six players remain under contract at the EBB Stadium.

Aldershot entered administration on 2 May and revealed debts of £1m, with £300k owed to football creditors.

The club failed to pay players their wages last month.

Any players who have been released, who have another year outstanding on their contracts, will now have a claim against Aldershot should the club find new owners as football creditors must be paid in full.
