Weston FC academy produce Brad Ash was on hand to inspire the Under-13s in their match on the main pitch at Weston.

WESTON Under-13s got a taste of what it would be like to be first team players when they played on the main pitch against a strong Reading side.

The match was recorded by Under-18s captain James Hodgkinson, while first team manager Craig Laird, academy graduate Brad Ash and press officer Simon Stephens were on hand to support the boys.

Under-13 manager Liam James said: “It was a great experience for the lads to play on the first team pitch. Our focus at the moment is to develop the lads in playing the right way and I would love to see these players progress into the first team in the future.”

Brad Ash, aged 17, is a product of the Seagulls academy and is one of the youngest players to be signed for the first team. While studying a BTEC in Sport at Weston College, Brad is motivated in developing aspiring footballers in Weston’s academy in his spare time.
