UPDATE: Lancaster City vs Ashton United postponed

Lancaster City were due to take on Ashton United looking to extend their unbeaten run to five games. UPDATE: this preview was written before the game was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

This comes after they were on the wrong side of the result in an unbelievable 11-goal regional trophy thriller on Tuesday evening.

They exited the Lancashire FA Challenge Trophy at the quarter final stage, losing 7-4 to rivals Bamber Bridge.

Andre Mendes struggled with a knock during the game and it is unclear whether or not he will be match fit for Saturday.

When speaking to Beyond Radio after the defeat, Lancaster boss Chris Willcock said he was “sure” his side will “come back on Saturday and show their true colours” against Ashton United.

The Greater Manchester side are ninth in the NPL Premier Division, just below where Lancaster find themselves.

'The Robins’ have only lost twice at home this season so City will need to be at their best if they want to get a result.

In the reverse fixture back in November, the Dolly Blues beat Ashton 2-1, thanks to the now ex-Lancaster striker Jacob Holland-Wilkinson and an own goal from Dan Cowan.

Ashton United’s last game was a 1-1 draw at Bradford (Park Avenue), who have had something of an upturn in fortune since defeat to Lancaster at the end of January.

Ashton United v Lancaster City kicks off at 3pm on Saturday (February 24) at Hurst Cross.

On Thursday, Lancaster City and Dollies in the Community announced the return of the Easter Field event for a second consecutive year.

The event involves a tournament between local junior teams in the Lancaster and Morecambe area.

The first Easter Field event was in 1892 but had not taken place for many years before the club announced its revival last year.

This year’s event is on Saturday April 20 from 9.30am until 1.30pm at The Giant Axe.

Lancaster City director James Cummiskey said: “I want to express the profound significance of hosting our annual Easter Field Tournament.

This event is not just a tournament; it's a tradition that celebrates the rich history of youth football in our area and the vibrant community that supports it.”

The club are looking for people to get involved in the event, including volunteers to help out on the day, businesses to sponsor the event and stalls, acts and musicians.
