Aldershot Town Football Club said they have been left "deeply shocked and saddened" at the passing of the club's former defender and caretaker manager, Chris Barker.

It follows the announcement of his death on New Years Day and club chairman, Shahid Azeem, made an emotional tribute to Barker - twice Aldershot's Player of the Season - in a statement on the club's website.

He has been described as "a tremendous professional" who "played a pivotal role on and off the pitch".

The club added:

"We offer our deepest condolences to Chris’ family, friends and former team-mates and colleagues. He will be greatly missed by all.

"Further details of a club tribute will be released in the coming days.

"On behalf of Chris’ family, we’d ask for them to be treated with respectful privacy at this very difficult moment in time."
