Spencer Trethewy (born 1971) is a self-proclaimed property developer,[1] who saved Aldershot Football Club from closure in August 1990 with a £200,000 signed affidavit.[1] He remained on the club's board as a director for just three months, and was voted off by the other directors after it transpired that he was unable to repay any of the money he had borrowed from other individuals in order to honour the affidavit.

In 1994, Trethewy was convicted of breaching the Companies Act by running up bills when his company was suspended from trading and sentenced to twenty five months in prison. This was reduced due to some successful appeals to eleven months.[2]

HH own significant waterfront holdings in Kingston upon Thames according to the Land Registry. Day is known to own at least two superyachts,[3] helicopters, and homes throughout the world. One of his main residences was featured in the Sunday Times "Beyond the brochure" article (1st Nov 09) and is listed at £12m. Day is also reported to be building one of the largest private homes in Surrey[4]
