Players wanted for ladies team

FEMALE footballers are being sought to join the ladies squad of Ashington Community Football Club.

Having only been formed for two years the team finished fourth in the Northumberland Women’s County Football League and are determined to challenge for the title in the up and coming campaign.

Despite several of the girl’s leaving to go to university, Coach Chris Sayer believes that the team has the right balance between youth and experienc, but in order to push on would like to attract a few more players to add more depth to the squad.

Ashington CFC Ladies have already bolstered the midfield with the signing of former Newcastle United and Sunderland Ladies midfielder Laura Jobson and hope to add several more to the squad before the new season begins in September.

Pre-season training has started already and anyone interested in joining them should contact Ladies Section Chairman John Sparrow on 07914 098809 or email to for further details.
