Cam Gascoigne came in for warm praise from Ashington manager Ian Skinner following the Colliers 2-1 win at Ossett United on Saturday.

“I thought there were some outstanding performances today” said the Woodhorn Lane boss afterwards, “but I’ll give a special mention to Cam Gascoigne. If the truth be known, I’ve been trying to invest and get him to understand what it is we want from him. Today we’ve asked him to play in a position that is a little bit alien to him but what I love about Cam is that he’ll ask questions and wants to know exactly what we require from him. First half he played in front of the dugouts then second half when he had to switch to the other side it was brilliant to see him embrace it.”

He continued: “I could mention every single player – but for Cam who has been in and out of the team since he came to the club and who has also struggled with injury a little bit, I thought he was excellent.”
