Sharaz and Shazad Hussain, of Woking-based construction company Sharaz Homes, have become new shareholders in Aldershot Town FC as part of their work in the local community.
The brothers have between them purchased £50,000 of shares in the Club, with Sharaz Homes continuing to work on housing developments in Ash and along the Surrey-Hampshire border.
"We want to give something back to the communities in which we are working, and as huge football fans we felt that supporting our local football club was the best way to do that," explained Sharaz. "We have both known Shahid Azeem for many years, through my father Sabir and our family, and through his passion for the Club we have also become supporters of Aldershot Town."
Shazad said: "We will encourage members of our community to join us in supporting the Club. We have seen the recent work between Aldershot Town and GlucoRx in helping Woking Tigers Football Club purchase new kit and equipment, and our relationships with both Shahid and the commitment from Woking-based company GlucoRx will help us to attract new fans to Aldershot Town from across the border in Surrey."
"Our aim is to be the most diverse Football Club in the country," explained Shahid, "and Sharaz and Shazad can be our advocates within their community. They've loved coming to the EBB Stadium in the last three years, along with their father, and wanted to be pro-active in their support of the Club. I've been trying to convince them to join me in Aldershot for ages, so I'm glad that they've finally agreed!"

Cyclists of all abilities are being invited to wheel out their bikes out on Sunday, 1 October for an epic ride through the leafy lanes of Hampshire – or something a little less challenging.
The Farnborough Flyer starts and finishes at The Village Hotel in Pinehurst Avenue, with riders able to choose 50 mile or 75 mile routes, which run as far south as the scenic Meon Valley, or a gentler 21-mile circuit around the airport perimeter, which is more suited to new riders and families, with its mainly off-road cycle route sections.
Rather than races, sportives are seen as fun events where cyclists can ride together enjoying quiet country roads while challenging themselves to complete the distance. The shorter 21-mile route has only a very short section on a main road. The rest of the route is made of cycle ways, a canal towpath and quiet traffic-free roads around the back of the airport.
New this year are the U10s’ and U8s’ children’s races taking place on closed roads at Farnborough Business Park, and hosted by Pedal Heaven Kids Club. Head coach Laura Orme said: “We are so excited to be hosting our first ever race series, especially during our first year, and with many local junior clubs around, we are hoping for a great turnout.”
Feed stations, sponsored by Decathlon Sports, will be available on each route providing cyclists with top-up energy drinks, gel bars and cakes and there will also be toilet facilities. It also gives the riders an opportunity for a quick rest before tackling the rest of the route.
The event is organised by local cycling club VC Meudon with Rushmoor Borough Council to raise money for local young club cyclists.
Rushmoor Borough Council’s Cabinet member for Leisure and Youth Councillor Maurice Sheehan, said: “It’s brilliant to see an event like this which brings together cyclists of all ages and abilities. The shorter route is three laps of the Farnborough Airport perimeter and highlights some of the sections we have been committed to improving to make them more accessible for cyclists - whether that is for commuting or recreation. We would love to see lots of new riders and families tackling this route.
“We are very grateful to VC Meudon cycling club for partnering with us to run this event, the Village Hotel for hosting, Farnborough Business Park and Airport, and of course Decathlon Sports. This is a great example of partnership working together for the benefit of our communities.”
Rushmoor Borough Council’s Health and Physical Activity Officer Martin Sterio, explained: ”This is our second Flyer following the success of last year’s event. It’s a great opportunity for people who don’t cycle very often to spend time and pick up experience and tips from regular riders, and to challenge themselves in the meantime.”
More information on routes and how to book a place on the sportive is available at www.britishcycling.org.uk/events/home or www.vcmeudon.com
Cyclists can enter on the day but there will be a small extra cost.

This review show allows him to indulge his twin passions for video games and movies. And Forces 360, a brand new weekly topical show which gets under the skin of current UK military operations, training and technology, as well as telling remarkable and inspiring stories about the bravest and most brilliant of the UK’s military men and women, past and present.
