Ashington pre-season friendly called off

Ashington CFC’s friendly against Prestwich Heys scheduled to have been played at Woodhorn Lane on Saturday has been postponed.

The Greater Manchester-based outfit were forced to withdraw from the contest on Thursday due to unforeseen logistical problems.

The Colliers have been making attempts to try and find alternative opposition but at such short notice, the likelihood was that manager Gary Middleton and his assistant Perry Briggs would instead supervise a training session.
