Development Squad earn point after going 2 goals down
Ashton Athletic 2 Colne 2
On a cold Thursday evening Ashton Athletic Development squad earned themselves an excellent point after going 2 goals behind, probably against the run of play, against a lively Colne side.
The team were always in the game but in the second half Ashton's quality shone through as the hard work began to pay off.
A headed goal from Luke Holden off a Dec McLoughlin corner and a quality volley from Matt Reid got the Yellows back on level terms.
The team could have even taken all 3 points as McLoughlin was brought down in the final minutes of the game.
Unfortunately an excellent save from the Colne keeper denied the win from Joel Brownhill's spot kick.
An entertaining game down at Brocstedes.
Next game Ashton Athletic 1st team are away at Abbey Hey on Saturday 21st - 3pm kick off.
