About Ashton 88 FC
Ashton 88 Football Club reformed in June 2015 and incorporates its name from the original formation of the club in 1988.
Based in Ashton-under-Hill in Worcestershire the club now boasts a healthy Senior Section and an ever growing Junior Section.
The Seniors have a First Team (that competes in Division 2 of The Birdseye Sports Evesham Sunday League) and a Reserves (in Division 3).
The Senior teams train (Thursday evening) and play home matches at Evesham United’s.
The Junior sections main sponsors are Park and Landscapes supported by the Star Inn in Ashton.
The Junior Sections formed in April 2016 with approximately 12 children of various ages. Over the last 5/6 years this has developed to a current membership of over 110 children ranging from under 8’s to under 14’s, as well as an all-girls team (under 10’s). We currently have 8 teams represented in the ambassador Evesham Saturday League and the girl’s team in the Mercian League.
We hope to form an U6/U7 development squad in 2022.
Our juniors home match days during the season (Saturday’s) and summer training (Thursday evening) are held at Ashton-under-Hill, Beckford and Alderton Playing Fields. In the winter training (Thursday evenings) moves to The De Montfort School in Evesham under floodlights.
The club was awarded FA Chartered Standard Status in March 2017 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 ensuring it is an enjoyable experience for the children. This includes equal time in match situations over a season and in the training sessions held.
