Will Constantin made his debut for Ashington on Saturday – but the 20 year old wasn’t smiling after the final whistle as his side went down 4-2 to Newton Aycliffe in their Pitching In Northern Premier League East Division clash.

The Surrey-born youngster – who is also registered with Gateshead – has been left kicking his heels since joining the Woodhorn Lane based outfit recently from Ebac Northern League first division outfit West Auckland.

He said afterwards: “I came to the club a few weeks ago but although I’ve been training, the first couple of games have been cancelled. Obviously I know the manager Ian Skinner from Gateshead and that’s how the move came about.”

Constantin who is based in Blyth continued: “They are a great group of lads at Ashington; I get on really well with them – and it was a shame about the result today. I felt I performed okay but conditions didn’t allow for any sort of football to be played.”
