Aldershot Town are delighted to announce the additions of Chris Chapman and Simon Paget-Brown to our Board of Directors.

Firstly, we welcome Simon Paget-Brown to the club. Simon is a solicitor advocate and provides comprehensive advice on contractual, corporate and commercial law matters, often with an international element.

He is experienced in working with individuals, national and international companies, specifically across Europe and the Middle East, and with clients with operations in a number of other jurisdictions.

This has brought experience of dealing with people at every level, from private individuals to multi-national CEOs, small boards to global groups.

Then we welcome GlucoRx Group Managing Director Chris Chapman. Chris began his career working in the Royal Navy at an early age and then spent 13 years with Surrey Police serving finishing as Chief Officer.

Most recently he has held a number of senior management roles in several Pharma companies and is currently the Group Managing Director of GlucoRx which is the UK market leader for Blood Glucose Meters, testing strips, lancets and pen needles saving the NHS millions of pounds each year.

Chris has had a long connection with not only Shots chairman Shahid Azeem but the club too as GlucoRx are proud sponsors of the East Bank and Shots Youth and Academy Department,

He can’t think of a better way to make a real difference to his local community especially in a sport he loves so much while raising the profile of Diabetes at the same time.

His business interests lie in motivation, people management and creative problem solving. Chris lives locally is married with two children and has a dog called Jakey.

Shots chairman Shahid Azeem was delighted to welcome both Simon and Chris to the board and had this to say: “I’m delighted to welcome Simon and Chris to the club.

“GlucoRx have made a great contribution to the football club, sponsoring the East Bank and club’s Youth Department and are listed as one of the best ethical companies in the UK.

“We’re very pleased and Chris will bring a wealth of experience in certain areas for us on the board and we look forward to continuing our relationship with GlucoRx.

“Simon is a lawyer and is representing a friend of mine who lives overseas and is purchasing shares in the football club as mentioned in the Fans Forum back in November and it is vital for that shareholder to be represented on the board.

“He runs his own consultancy firm and it’s great to have a lawyer with Simon’s experience on board and will be of huge benefit to the football club on many fronts including saving on legal matters, governance and compliance.”

Simon and Chris both live locally and will contribute in many areas as we move forward.
