Aldershot Town have turned down a request from a Football League club for permission to speak to manager Gary Waddock and assistant manager James Rowe.
Chairman Shahid Azeem informed both of the approach and that the Club had rejected it, a decision supported by Gary and James.
“We’ve got a lot of work to do here and I’m happy that the Chairman turned it down,” admitted Waddock. “I’m the manager of Aldershot Town Football Club and I’m very proud of that fact. Shahid was very up front and honest with me – he said that the Club turned it down straight away.
“We’re all working hard to try to achieve something. We’re nicely positioned in the league table but we haven’t achieved anything yet.”
“We are delighted that Gary and James have again shown Aldershot Town such loyalty, and believe in what we are all trying to achieve here,” said Azeem. “This is not the first time that a Football League club has recognised their qualities, and it won’t be the last time, but we want to keep them at Aldershot Town for as long as possible.
“We are all on a journey at the moment, and there will probably be a few more ups and downs along the way, but we know that Gary and James are the right people to take the Club forward and make this a special period in our history.”
