Jacob and Vince Sign Contracts

Both Jacob Mingle and Vinnie O’Sullivan have signed new contracts that tie them to the Club until the end of season 2005-06.

Jacob signed for Ashford on a permanent basis from Staines Town quite recently, following three loan spells and has become a key member of Ashford’s midfield.  The contract has been signed as part of the deal that brought Jacob to the Club.

Vinnie, despite being only 22 years of age, has already racked up 279 1st Team appearances for the Club.  Whilst he can play anywhere in defence or midfield, he has settled this season at right-back and is without doubt one of the Club’s key assets.

Ashford are delighted that both players have committed themselves to the Club for next season.

Wed 9 Mar

Southern Youth League – East Division

Ashford U-18  1    Cobham U-18  3

Ashford paid the price for missing several chances, especially early on, as Cobham hit two late goals to secure the win.  Ashford’s goal came from Matt Baxter.

Manager Len Wellard and Assistant Manager Mark Deacon have now been appointed as the Under-18 Management team for next season.

Tomorrow’s Match at Brackley

Departure time from the Club will now be 11.30 a.m. (meet 11.15) and not as previously advised.

Chairman’s Birthday

On Tuesday 8 March, Ashford Chairman Bob Parker celebrated his 65th birthday.  There will be a celebration at the Club this coming Saturday evening when anyone knowing Bob is welcome to attend.

After joining the Club in 1966, Bob did just about every job going, including Manager, before graduating to Chairman in 1982, even playing the odd match or two, although he would be the first to agree that he was always more useful off the field than on it..

For many years he has been the driving force behind the Club as they have risen from the Hounslow & District League through the Surrey Intermediate, the Surrey Premier, the Combined Counties and into the Isthmian and now the Southern League acquiring and improving their own ground on the way.

He also managed the very successful Matthew Arnold Sunday side in the 70’s and 80’s and was a qualified referee.

Back To Playing Football

Sat 5 Mar 05

Southern League – Western Division

Ashford  1    Cinderford Town  1

It was only one point which was disappointing but it was almost none as Cinderford took the lead in an isolated breakaway just one minute from the end.  Fortunately Scott Todd secured an equaliser a minute later  but on the run of play Ashford should have had this match sewn up well before then.

The first half had little quality about it but after the break Ashford dominated possession and seemingly had to score but it would just not go in, often thanks to the Cinderford keeper who pulled off one incredible save from a ferocious effort from Ben Whatford which had everyone applauding.

With none of the teams above them winning either, Ashford did not lose ground but the match at Brackley next Saturday, who enjoyed a good win at Bromsgrove is now the proverbial “six-pointer” for  both clubs as they contest a play-off spot.

Saturday 5 Mar

Suburban League – Premier Division

Walton & Hersham Res 4    Ashford Res  2

This was a disappointing result for the Reserves who lost after being two goals ahead, thanks to 16 year olds, Matt Baxter and Ricky Wellard.  It may have been different if Lee Simpson’s headed effort had not been controversially disallowed because Steve Willmore, making his come back after being out since November, was in an offside position, although not interfering in Ashford’s view.  Had the goal stood it would have given the visitors a three-nil lead.

Ladies Team

With the potential Under-13 team fizzling out, Ashford are now looking for a fully fledged adult ladies team to become Ashford Town Ladies from the start of next season.  The team will in all probability be allowed to use the main pitch on Sundays and will thus satisfy any requirements.

Any interested parties should contact Secretary Alan Constable

Midweek Team

Ashford are also looking to hire out the back pitch in midweek to any team interested, from the London Airport Midweek League or similar.  The hire cost will be less than that charged by the Local Authority and the players will enjoy full changing and bar facilities after matches.

Again, anyone interested should contact Alan Constable.
