Get ready, Tuesday sees the return of the Robins! After quite the lockdown lay off Ashton United host South Shields in the FA Trophy. With plenty of rust for both teams to knock off, you can expect a hungry Robin’s 11 keen to get back to winning ways!
It seems like almost an eternity since the boys in red and white took to the field. In their last game, which was over a month ago Clegg’s boys travelled to Whitby Town in what turned out to be a disappointing 2-0 defeat. That game extended Ashton’s winless run away from home to 3 games so the Robins will certainly hope to build some momentum against South Shields ready for their next away game. With the Whitby loss being far from recent memory Michael Clegg will certainly look for a bounce back from his side.
It could be argued that there is no better way for Ashton to return to football then the South Shields clash. In this season’s shortlist of results South Shields have offered the Robin’s some of their most exciting games of the year including the 3-3 draw way back in September, South Shields currently hold all the bragging rights however after their recent 4-0 humbling over the Robin’s. In what is sure to be a baptism of fire for the Robin’s return all eyes are on Hurst Cross for what can only be described as one of the most interesting draws of the round.
South Shields have started their season well so far but their biggest news has come from off the field as Little Mix star Jade Thirlwall was made the club’s honorary president.
Unfortunately, due to current restrictions, no fans will be allowed to attend the Tuesday night clash however every cloud has a silver lining as luckily this week’s game will be live-streamed! As those winter temperatures drop Ashton United can be your new home comfort. Who needs the champion’s league when Ben Hardcastle is scoring like there is no tomorrow? Michael Clegg and his lads will be beaming with pride knowing the fans who have been so key to the Ashton community are watching along as South Shields take a beating.
