Why this website exists...

From years' worth of extensive research into Ashton United's playing history - a club that can trace its roots back to the formation of the original Hurst FC in 1878 - this website has four main aims;

~ To help promote Ashton United FC and its long history

~ To help football historians and statisticians with their research

~ To share information with family members of past players

~ To allow others to alert me to my many errors and omissions


Simply click on the PLAYERS tab above, then the first letter

of the surname to look for any players, past or present - or you research the club's previous managers, match scores and league placings through the other tabs on the menu.
