Ashington FC’s vice captain Karl Ross admitted that his team mates have endured a ‘frustrating’ couple of weeks due to inclement weather conditions but with the forecast set to improve are hoping to begin another positive run of results in the Pitching In Northern Premier League East Division.

If the Colliers home clash against Newton Aycliffe goes ahead on Saturday (December 16), it will not only be their first competitive game since the 2-0 defeat against Liversedge three weeks ago but also the start of a run of nine games in the space of 29 days!

Ross who is based in Cramlington said: “It’s been a frustrating time training and then having no game. The lads were on a good run before the loss to Liversedge and we were eager for games to be played so as to continue the momentum and hopefully bounce back and return to winning ways.”

The 25 year old continued: “There are a lot of matches in a short space of time especially over the Christmas period but it is what it is. The lads enjoy getting together and playing football and hopefully we can put smiles on the faces of our supporters.”

He went on: “We are certainly looking forward to the challenge and just want to go on another good run.”
