Ist Team manager Ben Murray used to run the Under-18’s himself and is never afraid to give youth an opportunity with no less than ten players making 1st Team appearances last season who had come through Ashford’s youth ranks.
The Under-18’s play in the Ryman Youth League and regularly compete against U18 sides from clubs higher up the pyramid, through to the National Conference divisions.
