In their latest update, Quantuma Restructuring have offered another upbeat progress report as the Shots seeks new owners having been placed in administration at the start of May.

The identities of suitors interested in the Hampshire outfit remain under wraps, but talks continue to head in a positive direction.

The statement read: "Quantuma Restructuring continue to make good progress with interested parties with a view to the club coming out of administration.

"Whilst disclosure of the interested parties cannot, at this juncture, be made, there remains genuine interest. The Administrators hope to be in a position to make a more detailed statement in seven to 10 days' time.

"In the meantime, the administrators attended the conference AGM at the weekend and had a positive meeting with a number of their members.

"In particular, they were able to reassure the conference that discussions are progressing with interested parties with the key objective that Aldershot Town FC will be playing football conference national league next season."

Aldershot's five-year stay in the Football League came to an end last term as they finished bottom of npower League Two, with administration coming just five days after being relegated.

It was confirmed at the weekend that the club have been accepted into the Blue Square Bet Premier next season but will start the campaign with a 10-point penalty.
