Ashfield F C - 2018/2019

Recommended Posts

McBookie West Region Division 2:-

Ashfield 0 Vale of Clyde 4 - Saturday 05/01/2019

It was fitting that one of the the oldest Junior Clubs in Scotland were Ashfield`s `first footers` in this important West Region Division 2  league encounter with valuable points at stake. Both Teams were buoyed by last week`s victories on the North Ayrshire Coast against Saltcoats and Ardeer respectively and 10 points was the difference between the teams before Referee Steven MacKay blew his whistle to open proceedings. It was visible in the early stages that the Vale front two were going to give the Ashfield defence a torrid time and were not giving the back four any time to play out of defence. The `field were enforced into a number of changes due to injury today and Kenny Hadden slotted into the left back berth with John Gaynor back in the centre of defence. The `field had conceded early in their last home encounter and found themselves a goal down after a mix up in defence. A ball was played over the back four and hesitation between the Keeper and the defence allowed Ross Clift to guide a shot into the corner to the delight of the travelling support. A bad goal to lose from the home side`s point of view and again the `field were left to chase the game. Ashfield 0 Vale of Clyde 1. The `tin pail` were buoyed by this however had to withstand some Ashfield pressure via a number of corners, long throw ins and free kicks with Ashfield Captain Ciaran Friel going extremely close on a couple of occasions. As the game approached the half hour mark Ashfield fell further behind courtesy of an infringement from Colin Leverage on the Vale forward, the decision seemed rather harsh as the offence appeared outside the box however despite Ashfield`s protestations, the spot-kick was hammered in by Kevin Fraser despite the valiant effort of Cammy Farquhar in the Ashfield goal. Ashfield 0 Vale of Clyde 2. A real blow for Ashfield and try as they did the home side were struggling to break down a well organised Vale outfit who were really boosted by their first half goals and on the first half showing it was going to be difficult to see how Ashfield were going to claw themselves back into the game

HT:- ASHFIELD 0 VALE OF CLYDE 2

A 2-0 lead can sometimes be a difficult lead to hold onto so the next goal in the Match was vital for Ashfield and within a minute of the second half were presented with a gilt edged chance to do that after a lovely move saw Keigan Parker break through the Vale defence and as the ball sat up nicely the normally prolific scorer blasted the ball against the Vale Keeper and was cleared to safety. A real chance for Ashfield who for the next 15-20 minutes encamped themselves in the visitors half however despite the pressure chances were at a premium with a couple of shots richocheting past the box and corners being scrambled away. The `field also changed their line up bringing on a further striker in Gavin Goodall and as the game approached the last 15 minutes moved John Gaynor up front too to try and make the breakthrough however the Vale defence were extremely well disciplined and as the `field pushed forward they began to find holes in the midfield and after bringing on subs themselves put the `game to bed` with 5 minutes remaining after a sweeping move saw the ball cut back to Sam Donald who drove the ball into an empty net to win the Match. Ashfield 0 Vale of Clyde 3. To make matters worse the home side conceded a further goal in stoppage time after Referee MacKay spotted a handball in the box and despite Cammy Farquhar saving the spot-kick the rebound was converted by Ryan Murphy to inflict Ashfield`s heaviest league defeat of the Season. Ashfield 0 Vale of Clyde 4. The only crumb of comfort from today was the fact that the `field still remain in the Promotion place due to Vale of Leven and Carluke failing to win their matches however it is a long way to go and this final promotion place will I am sure `go to the wire`. It`s off to McKenna Park next Saturday to play the Ants - Kick-Off 1.45pm.

FT:- ASHFIELD 0 VALE OF CLYDE 4

Another defeat on Saturday, what's going on? Looked like potential title contenders at one stage but now in danger of missing out on a top 3 spot.

Recent form has been dissapointing and the management and players know this and understand this has to change to achieve our goals. Credit has to go to our opponents recently as all have played extremely well and deserved there results.

However it is not all doom and gloom at the club as the gaffer is working extremely hard both on the park and off it to promote the club and build up the profile of the club. Many positive things are happening at ashfield and hopefully this run of form is only temporary.

Maxi is an ashfield legend and great man and is showing all the credentials of being a good manager, he is also backed up with ryan cairley and scott mills whom are both great people, football men but also great coaches. The backroom staff is probably one of the youngest there is and mistakes will be made but rest assured maxi will get that team flying again.

There are some good players at the club and more importantly they are good people and the results will inevitably come hopefully this week but these are the same players that were 8 unbeaten at the start of season.

All at the club will work tirelessly to get it right on the park and rest assured we will strive to get that promotion in what is proving to be a very competitive league.

Having seen Ashfield a few times this season I fancy them still to be promoted.

paul Maxwell and Ryan cairley both have a great attitude towards the game and both fine players themselves.

 

good luck to Ashfield

Great players juniors definitely in agreement there. With all the hard work both putting in no doubts be very successful in the management game alongside scott mills all of which under the age of 34. Would love if you were right about promotion, we will give it our all in the bid to gain promotion

Excellent result for Ashfield today considering anything less than a win would have all but ended our promotion hopes.  Great team performance and 2 special goals from Gibby.  Mon the field!

McBookie West Region Division 2

Vale of Leven 0 Ashfield 3 - Saturday 16th February 2019

It was great to get a game on a Saturday as it had been a few weeks since Ashfield had played and the game did not come any bigger than a trip to Millburn Park to take on Vale of Leven, who were now sitting in the Promotion spot after a period of positive sustained results. The `field knew what they had to do today in order to claw themselves back into the promotion race and that was really a victory and as they set about their task against determined opponents in their away strip of all red. The opening exchanges were fast and furious and Ashfield had a couple of players playing out of positions due to injuries and young Lee Cochrane moved from his Midfield berth to support Graeme Heaton up front and it was those who linked up well in the 7th minute when Graeme Hearton almost connected to a Lee Cochrane cross. Shortly after and Mark McManus found some space in the box at an acute angle and his volley narrowly missed the far post. Vale of Leven stepped up the pace shortly after and a lovely move saw McGeachy played through and after rounding Farquhar his net bound effort was cleared on the line by Alex Amos. Five minutes later and it was Ashfield``s turn to have a one on one when Giblin played through Cochrane and as the Keeper advanced his shot was blocked by the home keeper however on the 26th Minute, Sheilds in the Vale goal had no chance with an Ashfield effort. Michael Giblin, returning after long term injury, gathered the ball 25 yards out and took a step before drilling a shot into the top corner of the net to put the `field ahead. Vale of Leven 0 Ashfield 1. It was a tremendous strike from the Ashfield Midfielder and officially opened his goalscoring account for the season.  The home side became rattled after this and were guilty of a couple of strong challenges in which Referee Peacock brandished his yellow card. The home side were determined to try and get on level terms before the interval however Cammy Farquhar in the Ashfield goal was commanding in the air and chances were at a premium for the home side. Ashfield had a chance on the 40th minute when a glancing header went by the far post from a free kick however were quite happy to see half time and regroup for the 2nd.

HT:- VALE OF LEVEN 0 ASHFIELD 1

The Half time resfreshments were welcome on this damp day and the crowd of circa 100 were all set for another absorbing 45 minutes. No changes to either line up as the game started and for a period of time the game became embroiled in midfield and a bit stop-start due to injuries. The home side were struggling to get any sort of sustained pressure on Ashfield as the back four were extremely well marshalled and were beginning to break with pace. Mark McManus and Michael Giblin were getting joy down the flanks and Billy Stevenson who replaced Graeme Hearton in the first half was making his presence known to the Vale defence.

Just after the hour mark and Ashfield`s afternoon just got better. Again it was good defensive work from Ashfield which allowed the ball to be played through the middle to Michael Giblin who then laid off a superb pass to Mark McManus on the edge of the box. The Ashfield Midfielder had time to look up and float a lovely ball to the far post where Michael Giblin came running in and bulleted a header into the roof of the net to the delight of the travelling support. A really well worked goal from Ashfield and the reaction from the players was there to see. Vale of Leven 0 Ashfield 2. The home side made a couple of changes after this however it was Goalkeeper Sheilds that kept the score down after a magnificent block from a left foot volley from Paul McQuilken, The Ex-Pollok stalwart thought that he had opened his account for the `field.  Next up Cammy Farquhar had to deal with a shot from the right in which he just managed to keep the ball out before another Ashfield attack saw the ball break nicely to Mark McManus in the box however his left foot volley crashed off the post and was cleared to safety. As the game entered the last 5 minuted another clearance found Gavin Goodall on the left and as he charged in on goal floated the ball to Mark McManus and after an initial effort being blocked was brought down as gathered the loose ball and Referee Peacock had no hesitation in pointing to the spot. Ashfield Captain Ciaran Friel stepped up and despite a valliant effort from the Vale Keeper, Ashfield were 3-0 up. Vale of Leven 0 Ashfield 3. Referee had still some work to do before bringing the game to a close and Lee McGeachy was shown a 2nd yellow card for an infringement. This result brings the `field back into the `mix for the Promotion place alongside Vale of Leven and Carluke. Vale of Clyde were also on the fringes however lost at home to Annbank Utd which shows how tough this League is. The `field welcome Muirkirk to the Peugeot Ashfield Stadium next Saturday and Vale of Leven are away to Thorniewood.

Farquhar, C Leverage, D Leverage, Amos, Friel, McManus, Giblin, McQuilken, Hearton, Cochrane, Cairns Subs:- Stevenson, Gaynor, Goodall, Passmore and McLaughlin.
