Ash United

Currently Playing In:

Combined Counties


A Surrey club that was founded in 1911 and after competing successfully in The County’s Intermediate League, won promotion to the Surrey Senior League in 1968. Changing grounds in 1972 meant a drop down to The Aldershot League but ‘The Green Army’ were soon back in the County League with a permanent home at Shawfield Road

The club built a fine reputation in the local cup competitions and also enjoyed some excitement in The FA Vase in the seventies and has now settled down to be a regular member of the Combined Counties League Premier Division, since the senior division was formed in 1982.

We have always been made aware of the clubs progress through local photographer Eric Marsh who has given wonderful service to our ‘Team Talk’ magazines and of course still provides great photos for ‘The Non-League Club Directory’.

Ash United have won the championship on three occasions and perhaps if they achieve a fourth title they may move up the non-league ladder. The club’s most recent manager is Paul Bonner, who made a record 582 appearances for Ash as a player and a completed list of his predecessors is kindly being compiled by the club.
