PARTNERSHIP TO BOOST FOOTBALL
Professional football is coming home to Gordon’s! The Vanarama National League’s Aldershot Town FC and Gordon’s School announced their partnership today. Aldershot First XI will train here four or five times a week through the season while our students will be coached by their elite team. The two organisations have shared values – Aldershot Town FC is a family club with connections to the Army and Aldershot Garrison. Gordon’s has a proud history of links to the military with over half its boarders from service families. The two institutions also share the ethos of developing players holistically and not just their skills on the football pitch. Chairman of Aldershot Town FC Shahid Azeem said: "The training facilities are first class and the club has been made so welcome by all personnel who have gone the extra mile to accommodate us. We look forward to a very long, fruitful relationship between the two parties and to playing our part in helping to develop the star of the future at the school." Director of Sport at Gordon's, Jamie Harrison said: "This provides an exciting period for football here that will not only identify talented students in the game but train and develop them".
