About Ashton 88 FC

Ashton 88 Football Club was reformed in June 2015 and incorporates its name from the original formation of the club for adults in 1988. Based in Ashton-under-Hill in Worcestershire the club now boasts a Senior Section and an ever growing Junior Section.

Seniors

The Seniors currently have a team that competes in The Birdseye Sports Evesham Sunday League. The Senior team trains (Thursday evening) and play home matches at Littleton and TDMS.

 

Juniors

The Junior sections club sponsors are Park and Landscapes, supported by the Star Inn in Ashton Under Hill. Each team has its own individual sponsors  which can be found here.

 

The Junior Sections formed in April 2016 with approximately 12 children of various ages. This has developed to a current membership of over 140 children covering all age groups from under 8’s to under 16’s, as well as an all-girls team (under 12’s). We hope to forma an under 7’s team shortly. All teams play in the Ambassador Evesham Saturday League except for the girl’s team who play in the Mercian Saturday League.

  

Our juniors home match days during the season (Saturday’s) and summer training (Thursday evenings) are held at Ashton-under-Hill, Beckford and Alderton Playing Fields. In the winter training (Thursday evenings) moves to The De Montfort School and Prince Henry’s High School in Evesham under the floodlights.

 

The club is an England Accredited 2 star Status club, recognising that we are well run and sustainable, and that child protection and safety are paramount. The status also recognises the club’s commitment to player and coach development, and the steps being taken to raise standards of behaviour in the game including respect for referees, opposition teams, parents, coaches, and all involved in volunteering to provide the opportunities for the children.

 

We endeavour to ensure players of all abilities are catered for when forming our squads for training and match situations, with focus on it being an enjoyable experience for the children. This includes equal time in match situations over a season and in the training sessions held, particularly at the younger ages.

 

All our coaches and committee members are volunteers.

 

We are a non-profit making club and our fees are structured to cover the costs of running the club (including pitch hire and upkeep, equipment and referee and training fees etc.) and to sustaining a fun and positive environment for both children and parents.
