This is to confirm that this evening’s match between Staines Lammas and Chessington & Hook United has also been postponed.

However, if you wish to watch the FA Cup Replay between Cambridge United and Manchester United, which is only being shown on BT, that will be on at the club, kick-off 7.45 p.m.

In the meantime our adult Sunday team are continuing to do well in their first season in the West Middlesex Sunday League.  Manager Gary Tomany has sent a report from the two previous matches:

Hampton Rovers - 3  Ashford Town  - 2

On the 18th January Ashford Town travelled  for a difficult away trip to Hampton Rovers.   Ashford started the brighter ,  playing good  football but just lacking the final ball inside the box.  Nevertheless, after half an  hour Ashford went in front from a corner when a David Jones flick found Grant Kelly who controlled  the ball with his first touch and  finished with his second.

Into the second half and Hampton stepped up a gear, as the game became more  open with chances  at either end. A wayward pass in the middle of the park and a fast break meant Hampton equalized with a fine finish to the bottom corner. Two minutes later and Ashford fell behind, this time from a close range effort.  With the game becoming stretched Ashford went looking  for the 2nd goal, whilst leaving themselves open to conceding a 3rd.

Neat build up play and a good run by Jordan Smithers led to a penalty.  Smithers stepped up to smash the ball down the centre.  With the game drawing to a close, Ashford thoug conceded a third goal.  A wayward leader in the box landed  straight at the centre forward’s feet  who duly obliged and left Ashford Town ruing their opportunities.

Isleworth Working Mens  Club – 3  Ashford Town - 5

On Sunday 2nd February Ashford looked to get back to winning ways.  On a windy morning Ashford dominated the 1st half leading 2-0 at half time with  two goals from the League,s top scorer Levi Jefford. Instead of pushing on and killing the game Ashford started the 2nd half slowly, allowing Isleworth to hit back with 2 goals of their own.   The 2nd goal was a 30yard free kick in to the top corner.

Isleworth sensed a shock victory but Ashford stepped up again and the lead was restored with a dubious penalty award by the ref and finished by Cullum MacKay.  Again Isleworth hit back this time with a powerful header to the bottom corner, from a corner.   3-3 and 15mins to go. Isleworth broke down the right. Lee Evans conceded a free kick on the edge of the box, and earned himself a booking. Tom Brooks in goal saved well pushing the ball over the bar. This time Ashford dealt with the corner, breaking fast in numbers and Levi Jefford collected his hatrick, with a cool finish from 10yards. Ashford sealed the game with a 5th goal from Keiran Moore.  With this win and the team in 2nd non active Ashford moved four points clear at the top.

Next up is a home game this Sunday vs Wayfarers.
