PRE-SEASON | West 2-3 Ashton Town
Saturday 6th July 2019, pre-season friendly
Ashton Town 3
West were beaten by Ashton Town in an entertaining second friendly of pre-season.
There were chances at both ends in an engaging first half, and after Ashton had an early goal ruled out and Lee Gavin struck a post at the other end, Ash Woods opened the scoring with a powerful shot from the edge of the area.
Brad Cooke made a raft of changes at the interval and further goals followed, with Ashton equalising before a trialist immediately put West back in front. But the visitors took control with two further goals including a late winner.
Cooke’s side are on the road for the first time this summer with a trip to Euxton Villa on Tuesday, before welcoming Irlam to Brookburn Road on Friday night.
