Back-to-Back Championships for Ashy Athletic
One of our two Over 45s team, Ashburton Athletic, has won the league for the second year in a row.
Needing a win in the last game of the season, the Athletes got the job done, winning 2-1 away against Juventus Old Boys.
In third place a few weeks ago, Ashy stormed home with 4 wins in a row to claim the senior club’s first ever back-to-back championships by just one point.
After singing the club song with gusto, talk quickly turned to the possibility of a ‘threepeat’, if bodies had recovered in time for next season.
Meanwhile, Ashburton’s other highly-competitive Over 45s team, United, finished off their season in style, wining 3-0 to secure a respectable mid-table position.
