Ashford go to Hanworth Villa on Saturday and whilst a glance at the league table, with Villa second from bottom, suggests an easy match, Ashford know only too well it will be anything but.  Indeed it is a mystery to most clubs in the CCL that Hanworth Villa have been at the wrong end all season, after some of their exploits, especially in cup competitions in recent seasons.

Ashford really needed to reign Molesey in on Tuesday evening to keep their championship hopes up but failed to do so when the hosts scored a last minute goal which gave them all three points but, as has been said, there is still 20-25% of the season to go for most clubs in terms of matches and Ashford, who should be at full strength tomorrow, certainly won’t be giving up yet.

Villa play at Rectory Meadows, Park Road, Hanworth, TW13 6PN and there is plenty of parking at the ground. 

In recent matches Hanworth Villa have picked up points, including a 4-0 win at Bedfont Sports on Tuesday and a 1-1 draw at Epsom & Ewell but were heavily beaten by 6 goals to 1 at home to Windsor a fortnight ago and they lost the proverbial six pointer 1-2 at Guildford last Saturday.  One player to possibly look out for, although he doesn’t seem to have played for the Club recently, is ex-Ashford striker Scott Todd.  It seems a long time ago that Scott was named “Step 4 Player of the Year” throughout the country, when we won promotion form the Southern League Div. One West but he was a stalwart for Ashford playing well over 300 matches for the Club and scoring over 100 goals.

Kick-off tomorrow is 3.00 p.m. as usual.
