 **BREAKING NEWS** 

Ashton Football Club Founder Passes Away

It was very sad news to hear the founder of Ashton Boys FC Terry Hazel has sadly passed away.

 

Terry founded the club in Greville Smyth Park opposite Ashton Gate Stadium in the summer of 1994. The club grew at a rapid rate and many people past at present at the club have fond memories of those days when the club was first starting out. Ian Jones Ashton FC Club Chairman commented "Terry had a great impact on this club and started something 25 years ago that we all enjoy now. He will always be known as a club legend. Our thoughts are with all his family, Friends and the football community in general". 

 

Terry's legacy will live on through the club which today sees over 450 players enjoying playing at a club Terry started just 25 years ago.

 

The club were delighted to have Terry in attendance at the clubs 20th Anniversary dinner dance celebrations back in October 2014 where Terry was honorary guest on the night. The evening celebrated Terry's achievements in creating such a wondering club for the boys and girls of South Bristol and the wider community.  

 

Terry has left a thriving club of Ashton Boys, Ashton Girls and Ashton & Backwell United, something he and his family will be proud of, we certainly are.

 

RIP Terry Hazel - you are gone but never forgotten.
