Ashforth joins Campion as joint boss

13th May, 2019

Campion have quickly brushed off the disappointment of narrowly missing out on promotion to the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division by announcing the arrival of Lee Ashforth as joint manager to work alongside James Bicknell.

Ahead of their third season in the league, the Bradford-based side have shown their intent ahead of the 2018/19 season by bringing in Ashforth who has been in charge of clubs higher up the National League System.

A club statement said: "Campion AFC are delighted to announced that Lee Ashforth will be joining the club as joint first team manager with James Bicknell.

"Lee brings a wealth of experience having manager Harrogate Railway Athletic, Ossett Town and Clitheroe in the Evo-Stik League.

"Lee is well known across the local area and also already known to Campion AFC management, committee and players.

"We would like to offer Lee a massive Campion welcome to the club and look forward to working with him."

Ashforth explained his reasons for making the move: "After a tough couple of seasons working for a club that was merging at the end of the season and then with a club with a budget aimed at keeping the club in the division, I was looking for a project that was progressive and one that I would enjoy, and Campion FC and James tick all the boxes.

"I am looking forward to working with an excellent group of players and hopefully building on a hugely successful season season for the club."

Bicknell added: "I have known Ash for a number of years and he has always been a good source of advice as Campion have continued to improve each season.

"I am now looking forward to working alongside him and continuing to progress Campion AFC."
