Aldershot Town are delighted to welcome RLHA to the EBB Stadium on Saturday as sponsor of our match against Boreham Wood, and also to pay tribute to long-standing Shots fan Derek Elstow, in whose memory the match ball is sponsored.
RLHA Group, comprising of RLHA (a not-for-profit organisation) and Ethical Leasehold Management (ELM), have been in business for over 43 years. It began with the company specialising in the first ever development of private leasehold management in the ‘independent retirement living’ sector in 1971. Over the past 43 years, they’ve established an enviable pedigree within the Estate Management industry and are now a well-respected and reputable organisation in the South of England which engages with all aspects of the residential estate management market. RLHA are unable to attend today’s match but have donated their ten match tickets to St Michael’s Junior School.
The match ball is dedicated to the memory of Derek Elstow. Derek sadly passed away on 10 February 2016 at the Duchess of Kent Hospice in Reading, who took wonderful care of him, his wife Marian and his family. Derek lived in Thatcham, Berkshire but was born in Upper Hale, Farnham. Derek was an Aldershot supporter since a child, as his father before him. Up until Derek’s diagnosis last year he always tried to attend home matches and when his condition worsened he followed their progress on the internet and TV. Known by many as Del Boy, Derek was a friendly, kind and gentle man. He is missed so much and will always be with us.
