BIOGRAPHY

Alan Ashton by Alex Service

Alan signed for Widnes from the Ditton junior club and appeared for the Chemics in the 1972 Floodlit final at Leigh. He was snapped up by St.Helens for 1,500 in 1975 and was substitute in the 1977 Premiership final and non-playing substitute in the 1978 Challenge Cup final against Leeds. A tireless worker in the loose and a great team player, Alan moved to Whitehaven in 1978-79, where he linked up with his former Widnes team-mate Ray Dutton.

Sad to report that Alan passed away in December 2016, after illness.
