About the host organisation

Hosted by: Ashton United in the Community
Organisation Profile: Founded in 1878 Ashton United FC is one of the oldest football clubs in the world, with Hurst Cross the second longest continually played on ground in the world. The club competes in the Vanarama National League North, the 2nd tier of Non League Football, at a very high standard, competing with the likes of Stockport County, York City, Altrincham, Fc United of Manchester and local rivals Curzon Ashton FC. As a club, we have a loyal and very strong working Board of Directors and group of volunteers, most having served the club for many years. Very much a family orientated club, ‘The Robins’ are proud of the partnership that exists between the club and Ashton United in the Community, a registered charity that supports community engagement, and provides for volunteering opportunities for local people through roles within the football club and within the local community. We are committed to developing young talent in our region, whilst also offering volunteers the opportunity to gain experience and knowledge. We are proud that many of our volunteers, having learned new skills and gained experience with the club, have moved from a voluntary role into full time employment elsewhere in the professional game.
