Ashford have heartbreakingly dropped back to the Junior A championship in the most cruel way as they looked to have all but secured their Intermediate status for 2019 when 8 points up against Ballinacor in the Intermediate Relegation Final but the spirited Cors managed to find serious resolve to pip Ashford to the post.
Everyone has excuses but in Ashford’s case they could have reasonable grounds to cite an extraordinary amount of bad luck and other moments that contributed in no small part to their downfall but 2018 is in the past and for the future Ashford have turned to their home grown legends to bring them straight back to Intermediate Football where they will feel they have unfinished business.
Taking the reigns at the Black & Amber will be none other than Darren Doyle & Kevin Manning who have given incredible service to Ashford for many years and will now continue their service in charge of a squad that will be firmly capable of winning the Junior A Football Championship and many intriguing battles lie ahead with a possible meeting with An Tochar being one of the juiciest prospects.
We have made no secret of the fact that we have a very soft spot for Ashford and we wish the team and management every success in 2019.
