Aldershot Town have welcomed three new directors to the club, as Deane Wood, Sharaz Hussain and Waleed Khan join the board.
All three have purchased shares. Wood is owner of Spedeworth Motorsports, Europe’s leading stock car racing promoters who promote oval racing at seven stadiums across England, including Aldershot Raceway, and is also Managing Director of six other companies.
Sharaz Hussain is a director of Woking-based construction company Sharaz Homes, who are continuing to work on housing developments in Ash and along the Surrey-Hampshire border. Hussain became an Aldershot Town shareholder in September 2017, along with brother Shazad, and has now extended his stake in the club.
Khan has 35-years’ experience in the corporate world, most recently as UK Managing Director for multinational German company Bowe Systec. Having started his career with NatWest, he then moved to Chicago to be head of an international business unit in charge of offices in 52 countries. After retiring at the age of 55, in July 2015, Khan has since completed his FA Level 1 and Level 2 coaching badges, and as part of his Level 2 studies, in July 2017, spent time observing Gary Waddock’s pre-season training sessions.
