Next season Ashington will compete in the Northern Premier League for the first time in more than half a decade. Travel will increase substantially meaning additional costs to both getting to games and for personnel now spending more of their weekend on football.

Unlike many non-league clubs Ashington has no benefactor with deep pockets to cover these costs. Our progress to this point has been built on the support of the people and businesses in the community. Our progress in the future is dependent on this continuing support and we firmly believe we have a bright future if our magnificent supporters continue to back us.

With all of this in mind we are this evening launching our “Build the budget” campaign. We are asking those supporters who can spare it, to help build the budget and give Ian Skinner the best chance of building a squad to compete as we transition to the higher level of competition.

How it will work
We’ll be running the scheme between Friday 9th June and Friday 7th July, simply pledge a monthly donation that will go directly towards building our squad and be rewarded for your support. All donations above £5 a month will gain access to our Colliers Club Draw, with further benefits added the more generous you are able to be. The benefits and draw prizes are outlined below;

Collier Club Draw Prizes
1st – Limited edition home shirt
2nd – Matchday hospitality for 4
3rd – Adult season ticket
4th – Concessionary or U16 season ticket

To sign up contact with your name and the amount you’d like to pledge and we will be in touch with a link where you can set up your direct debit. Alternatively you can make a one off payment at any above £40 will also be entered into our draw.

The Colliers club draw will take place on Friday 7th July in the clubhouse and we will be running a quiz night on the evening.
