Ashington Football Club would like to send their condolences to the Sampson family after the passing of Bill, a supporter of the club who was also a former player. Bill’s grandson Ben is on the playing staff at the Woodhorn Lane club. Our thoughts are with the family at this sad time.
Three generations: When Ashington travelled to face Albion Sports last September and came away with a 4-3 victory in the first qualifying round of the FA Vase, three generations of the Sampson family were captured by the home photographer. Ben Sampson (no 15) came on as a substitute and is involved in the action watched from the terraces by his father Paul (left) and his granddad Bill.
