Match Preview | Curzon Ashton (A)

By Noah Woodland

Gloucester City face a 142 mile trip to Curzon Ashton, where they will look to make it two wins from two after the stunning 5-1 win over Bradford Park Avenue.


The Tigers are currently sitting in 9th place and have only lost one game in their last seven, winning two, drawing four and losing one, with the previous game being a 5-1 home win over Bradford PA after two Dom McHale goals

sent his side on their way to secure the three points.

Curzon Ashton are currently placed in 16th and are also off the back of three points, after a 2-1 away victory versus Alfreton Town last weekend. However, The Nash find themselves only six points away from the relegation zone, although only playing 28 games.


  • Founded in 1963 following the combination of two clubs, Curzon Road and Ashton Amateurs

  • Nickname: "The Nash"

  • Home Ground: Tameside Stadium (3000 capacity)

  • Manager: Mark Bradshaw

  • Players to watch: Tom Peers, Josh Hannock and Benni Smales-Braithwaite


The reverse fixture at the TigerTurf stadium ended in a 3-0 Curzon Ashton win, with two goals from Peers and one penalty from Josh Hancock. Steven King's side will look to get some revenge on The Nash away from home, which if results were to go City's way, could see them move up a place.
