Career History
Ashley began his playing days with spells at both Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday. Commendably he decided to study at University rather than go for a full time football career, and turned out for Worcester City, Malvern Town, The 61 Club (Luton) and eventually Heybridge Swifts where he first played for Garry Hill.

Ashley's form at Heybridge was such that Barry Fry took him to Peterborough in December 1997 for 5,000, however, he failed to settle at London Road playing just 1 first team game and re-joined Hill at his new club, St Albans City after just 6 months for a 10,000 fee. When Garry moved on to Victoria Road Ashley eventually followed when the Saints surprisingly made him available and he was signed for a nominal fee in March 2000. He has won representative honours for the Ryman League and an FA XI in 1999 and 2001.

Ashley is a tall streaky looking defender who is comfortable at either centre back or, rather surprisingly, left back. He is the sort of player that fans hate when they play for another side, but when he plays for your team, you love him. His "bambi" like legs win unlikely tackles when all seems lost and he invariably manages to get the man as well as the ball and get away with it.

He started 2001/02 badly with a red card in the Essex Senior Cup final in August which earned a three match ban, but came steaming back, even scoring the "golden goal" that won the LDV tie against Luton Town.

In 2002/03 he again had his disciplinary problems and lost out towards the end of the season with illness but still featured in 42 games.
