Club Chairman Shahid Azeem said: “We’re delighted to have partnered with Her Game Too.”

“Aldershot Town is a club that cares a lot about the community surrounding us and we’re always looking at ways we can improve the experience of our supporters visiting the EBB Stadium.”

“We hope that this partnership can help us provide a safe and welcoming experience for all of our fans and explore new ways of promoting women’s involvement in all aspects of the game.”

“We’ve recently formed some women’s teams within our academy and the girls have started fantastically so far this season.”

“We’re certainly looking to grow our involvement and partnering with Her Game Too is a great start to looking into the best ways to do so.”

“Thanks to the Shots Foundation for helping develop this partnership and we’re excited to work with Her Game Too.”

Shots Foundation Chair of Trustees Sir John Casey added: “The Shots Foundation is pleased to support the partnership with HerGameToo.”

“Football is a sport like no other and this means it can be played by anyone and the number of new participants has grown in the past two decades and these new participants are from all the diverse sections of our society.”

“The Shots Foundation and Aldershot Town Football Club are pledging their support to #HerGameToo as part of their ongoing commitment to being an inclusive club and helping promote football as a game for all.  Shots fans will be justifiably proud of this.”

“There are a number of things we will be doing going forward including highlighting the initiative in the home fixture closest to International Womens Day – which in this season is Oldham Athletic on March 9th and continuing to supply free sanitary products in the toilets at the EBB.”

“Our aim is to make our Football Club and our stadium welcoming to girls and women.  To do that, we need ideas, support and energy from all our supporters alongside our own commitment and resources.  Help us make Aldershot Town FC even better – for everyone!”
