  • Ashfield`s Match v Saltcoats Victoria fell victim to the weather on Saturday 22nd February 2020.

  • ASHFIELD 6 MAYBOLE 5 - Sat 16th November 2019. An unbelievable game with the goal count for the two League Games against each other this season at a staggering 21. The `field welcomed Maybole to the Peugeot Ashfield Stadium however after a bright opening from the hosts, Maybole went ahead. Goals from Dean Leverage & Sean Doherty had the `field ahead 2-1 however the Ayrshire team equalised before half time courtesy of an overhead kick. Early 2nd Half Goals from Maybole had them staring at a memorable victory however the `field had other ideas and produced a tremendous last half hour to score four goals with efforts from Ciaran Friel, Paul Maxwell, Brian Hepburn & Callum Graham which had the home support in raptures before the visitors pulled a goal back in injury time. Credit to both sides for producing a tremendous match and the `field can go into their 4th Round tie in Aberdeen with a `spring in their step`.

  • POLLOK 4 ASHFIELD 1 - Sat 9th November 2019. Despite the scoreline, which was harsh on the `field, Ashfield produced their best performance of the Season against very talented opponents. Ashfield defended exceptionally well in the first half and went in 1-0 down, thanks to a lovely finish from Ex-Ashfield player Shaun Fraser,  who dinked the ball over Ryan Dakhill in the 16th minute. Things could have been better for Ashfield,  however Referee Anderson only deemed the Lok Keeper`s last man foul on Callum Graham as a yellow card. A speculative cross/come shot from Mark Sideserf on the hour mark seemed to have the game won for the `Lok however Ashfield put the home side under pressure & were rewarded with a goal 20 minutes to go from Callum Graham. A grandstand finish saw the `field go close but were eventually undone by a wonderful free-kick from Adam Forde and a late penalty from Fraser.  Goals are on

  • ASHFIELD 4 ARDEER THISTLE 4 - Sat 2nd November 2019. A much improved Ardeer team under new Management showed that their improving results were not a `flash in the pan` as their young Team gave the Ashfield Keeper & back four a torrid time, especially from long throw ins. A dull first half saw the `field miss a number of opportunities and were made to pay as the visitors scored two identical goals from Long throw ins on the hour mark. The `field eventually upped the tempo and had Callum Graham and Brian Hepburn to thank for hauling the home side level at 2-2 with twenty minutes to go.  Callum Graham put the `field 3-2 ahead before being pegged back by another long throw in & then shortly after Callum completed his hat-trick with a few minutes to go to put the `field 4-3 up.  Just on FT yes you guessed it another long throw in caused panic in the Ashfield defence and Keeper Cammy Farquhar ended up punching the ball into his own net to ensure the Ayrshire men took a point from an unreal game.

  • ASHFIELD 4 LUGAR BOSWELL 1 - Sat 26th October 2019. Ashfield continued their free-scoring at the Peugeot Ashfield Stadium this afternoon against a  hard working Lugar side who ensure the `field did not get it all their own way.

Joe Shevlin

  • It is with great sadness that we report the passing of life long Ashfield Supporter Joe Shevlin.  Joe passed away peacefully on Sunday night (12/5/19) surrounded by his family. Joe and his son Paul have been ever present at the Ashfield Matches home and away and his last Match he made was the long trek down to Muirkirk only a few weeks ago. As his son Paul said that at least his last goal he saw was an Ashfield goal and it was a cracker from Billy Stevenson. R.I.P. Joe. Joe will be fondly remembered amongst the Ashfield faithful.










(Above - Gordon Passmore`s 35 yarder against Dunipace in a 2-0 win at Westfield Park, Denny in the 2005-06 Season helping Ashfield to the Central League Division 2 Title)



The club can confirm that Gordon Passmore will retire at the end of this season at the age of 40.

Gordon announced his retirement this week after discussions with the management team and felt that it was only apt that he finishes up his playing career to focus on his youth coaching with Cumbernauld Colts, where he has enjoyed coaching in the academy side for the past 2 years.

‘Passy first signed for Ashfield in 2005 under then manager Stevie Rankin, whom he captured from Cumbernauld Utd. His career highlights at the ‘field include winning Players Player of Year in 2005/2006 and then winning the Central League Division 2 title the following season. Passy continued his spell with the club for a further five seasons where he achieved promotion from the Central League Division 1 in 2008/2009 and then helping Ashfield win the Super First league and secure promotion to the Super Premier league for the first time in 2010/2011. Passy then ‘retired from football to focus on his family before being persuaded to come back last season by the now manager Paul Maxwell.

Manager Maxwell added his compliments for Passy….

“Gordon Passmore deserves every plaudit and commemoration that comes his way after his decision to retire. He is Mr Reliable when it comes to playing and I know it might sound cliché but he is one of the most genuine and nicest guys I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. It will be sad not to see him around the club anymore but on the other hand it is an absolute credit to Passy for continuing playing. His wonder strike against Dunipace around 13 years ago is still clear in my memory but it is even his recent performances that still stick out at the ripe old age of 40. We played Neilston in the Scottish Cup this season, a team that is two leagues above us may I add, and when we fought back to lead the tie I remember the last 20 mins performance from Gordon where he was absolutely immense and helped us see the game out to win. People will always talk about goals and creativity when winning games but Passy has modestly been an unsung hero on a continuous basis for Ashfield. He’s had an incredible junior football career, particularly here, along with spells at Cumbernauld Utd and Dunipace. I only hope we achieve promotion this year to allow Gordon to have a good sign off on his career. That said, I wish him all the best, I’m sure his wife Linda and their boys will be delighted to see Dad around more often. Good luck for the future Passy."

Gordon took a moment to speak with the social media team and said…

“I just want to say I’ve had a great time being back with Ashfield for the past couple of years and really enjoyed being back playing at junior level again. I’ve played 8 years all in with Ashfield and they have been the best footballing years of my career and this probably wouldn’t have happen if it wasn’t for Maxi coming back to the club 2 seasons ago. I would like to thank him for asking me to come back. 
The club are at a crucial time of the season at the moment with us fighting for 3rd spot so I’m really hoping the lads can pull together and manage to get promotion. For me it would end my football career on massive high and would give me great memories in years to come and for the team it would be a great achievement. 
I would like to thank the management Maxi, Ryan, Daks and Millsy and wish them all the best with taking Ashfield to where they should be and would also thank the lads for making my time here brilliant and wish them all the best with the club. 

Mon the field!"

Good luck GORDON PASSMORE, Ashfield FC LEGEND!!!

  • It is with deep sadness that we report the passing of former Club President Michael McGuigan. `Auld Mick` was an ever present at Ashfield over the years and a terrific servant to the Club. It was very fitting that Mick attended our most recent home League game only 2 weeks back to cheer on his beloved Ashfield and see some old faces.

  • Mick will be fondly remembered among the Ashfield faithful.

  • R.I.P. Mick

  • Club Statement:- We are delighted to announce that Paul Maxwell is the new Player/Manager of Ashfield F.C. Paul will be ably supported by Ex-Ashfield Midfielder Ryan Cairley who will join the Club as Assistant Manager. We wish them both well........`mon the `field !!

  • Club Statement:- It is with great disappointment that Robert Docherty has stepped down from his role as Ashfield Manager due to personal circumstances. `Doc` has been a terrific ambassador for the Club in the past three Seasons on and off the park. Despite a big improvement last season, the Club didn`t quite manage promotion which would have been aptly deserved for `Doc` and his Staff`s efforts. It goes without saying that the biggest achievement in Docs reign has been the creation of the Ashfield Academy with now over 150 kids involved from age groups 5 to 15 years old.

  • Whatever happens next for Robert, we wish him all the very best. A terrific Coach, ambassador and Manager, the most obvious however a terrific guy and gentleman. All the best Doc and thanks for all your endeavours.

  • It is with great sadness that we have to report of the passing of our Club Treasurer Jim Ross. Jim was a magnificent servant to Ashfield Football Club and had been involved for over 60 years. Our thoughts and condolences are with his family at this sad time.

  • Please note that Jim`s service is at Glasgow Crematorium, Tresta Road, on Friday 29th June, at 10.30am. Friends and family are respectfully asked to wear black and white for his beloved Ashfield F.C. to celebrate his life and loves. No flowers please.

  • The Club are delighted to confirm that Club Captain & Coach Paul Maxwell has achieved the SFA C License Coaching Accreditation. A great achievement for Maxi which will add value to our coaching set up from academy to senior level. Well done Maxi !

  • Ashfield finished their 2017-2018 Central League Division 2 campaign off (21/4/2018) with a 1-0 win at Westfield Park, Denny defeating Dunipace by 1-0 courtesy of a Kris Griffin strike on the 46th Minute to ensure the `field finished on a very respectable 35 points. This was a game that the `field dominated and should have been well out of sight however found themselves hanging on in the final minutes to ensure victory. The `field were up against a very determined Dunipace Team who defended resolutely in the first half however succumbed to a solo effort from Griffin at the start of the second half. Paul Maxwell must have been wondering what he needed to do to get on the scoresheet, firstly being denied by a wonder save in the first half and then by the underside of the cross bar in the second.
