Troy's back in Town!

By Ellie Hamilton

Town are delighted to announce that Troy Carsley has agreed to re-join the club for the coming season.

“I’ve enjoyed the challenge of playing in the Premier Division last year, and I’m looking forward to playing for Ashey again” Troy Carsley

The crowd favourite spent last season at NWCFL Premier Division side Charnock Richard, helping them to a sixth placed finish in the league.

Along with his brother Brad, Troy was a cornerstone of the Longridge side that won the West Lancs League title just two years ago and was delighted to become Ashey’s first pre-season addition to his squad.

He said:

“I loved my time at Longridge and since then the club has come a long way on and off the pitch.

“I’ve kept an eye on the results since I left, particularly last season, and watched games at the MRG when Charnock had no game.

“I’ve enjoyed the challenge of playing in the Premier Division last year, and I’m looking forward to playing for Ashey again.”

Manager Lee Ashcroft was equally pleased to have got his man through the door:

“Troy had a tremendous season at Charnock and I am absolutely delighted to welcome him back to the Ridge.

“He’s got himself fit, he’s a strong lad and a fierce competitor.

“Those attributes alone will make us stronger as we look forward to the coming season.”

Town kick-off their pre-season fixtures on 29th June away at Freckleton. You can find all our pre-season information here.
