Our senior team has capped off a fantastic year by claiming the Runner-up position in State League 4 East and a chance to win promotion in the play-offs.
Needing a point in the last game of the season, Ashy had to battle hard against Healesville in very difficult conditions but got the desired result in a battling 2-2 draw.
This Saturday the boys take on the Runners-Up in State League 4 South, Springvale City, in an elimination play-off at Casey Comets ground in Cranbourne at 3.30pm.
Ashy’s reserve team capped off a great year by securing third place, just one point behind second spot.
Pleasingly, the youthful squad featured plenty of Ashy juniors who are transitioning into senior football.
Elsewhere, our two Sunday Thirds teams also finished their respective seasons, recording a few highly memorable wins and remaining highly competitive throughout the year.
Our Senior Men's team had a great win in their play-off game against Springvale City over the weekend. Use the link below to watch the video highlights. And if you'd like to watch the boys in action this Saturday as they play for a promotion spot against Dingley Stars, then head to SS Anderson Reserve in Port Melbourne. Kick off is at 1.00pm. Go Ashy!
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.
