The Robins found their early season form again as they returned to winning ways last Tuesday with a 1 – 0 victory over Yorkshire side Guiseley, following a dominant performance in their draw with Boston on Saturday.
These back to back home games saw the end of a barren October for Hurst Cross as Ashton played every single game away from home. This has had an impact on the club both on and off the field.
Ashton’s only real source of income being their sole win against Evo Stick Southern Premier side Kings Lynn Town in the Emirates FA Cup.
The draw was not kind to Ashton as their only chance of a home game in October resulted in yet another away game at Conference North Southport, a game they ultimately lost in turn ending their hopes of a cup run this year.
The continued involvement of Alfreton Town in the FA Cup means Ashton’s return to form has been put on hold this weekend, as they miss out on another Saturday home fixture.
Hopefully the team can take advantage of the enforced break, as players can rest and regroup for the short trip to Bradford next week.
The atmosphere around the club has been lifted immensley following the last two games, and it will certainly help everybody involved take a positive approach in the weeks to come.
