It’s back to the League on Saturday with Ashford making their longest trip of the season to play Horley Town FC, although it should not take more than 45 minutes.

It will not be easy with Horley having shown some form, especially in cup competitions recently, making progress in the FA Vase by three goals to two against Sevenoaks Town, and then,  on Tuesday evening, beating Division One side Sandhurst Town by five goals to one in the League Cup.  The player to look out for is Ashley Nadesan, who scored all five in Tuesday’s victory.  League form has not been quite so good, the most recent match resulting in a 3-4 defeat at Colliers Wood United.  Overall Horley sit in 12th place in the table with nine points from their eight matches.

Horley only moved to their impressive new ground a few seasons ago and the address is The New Defence, Anderson Way, Court Lodge Road, Horley, Surrey, RH6 8SP.  Court Lodge Road is a long windy affair through a large housing estate but you need to look out for Horley Leisure Centre as the ground is through the same entrance and just behind the Leisure Centre.  If you come in from one end, you need to go through the estate before turning left into the Leisure Centre, if you come from the other, it is a fairly swift right hand turn.

Although Southall made it difficult on Tuesday, it was Ashford who knocked in another three goals just as they had last Saturday at Frimley.   With players returning, Ben Murray will again have a difficult choice in selecting both his team and squad, with just about everyone seemingly on form at the moment.  With Spelthorne, Molesey and Cove continuing to set the pace though, nothing can be taken for granted and, as mentioned, Horley will be no push overs.  Kick-off, as usual, is at 3.00 p.m.

The Under-18’s suffered an unexpectedly heavy defeat on Wednesday, losing 0-7 to Hayes & Yeading and will need to improve if they are to have any chance of progression in the FA Youth Cup next Wednesday when they entertain Met Police U18.
