After the awful news of the passing of former Ashton Athletic and Charnock Richard player Brad Whittle last week the club have organised a talk with the charity State of Mind
to support current players and indeed anyone associated with the club.
"State of Mind Sport is a charity that harnesses the power of sport to promote POSITIVE mental health among our sportsmen and women, fans and wider communities, and ultimately to prevent suicide."
There is also important information here from the NHS

The talk will be presented by former Rugby League professional Danny Sculthorpe and begins at 6-30 pm at Ashton Athletic FC. WN4 0NR.
Everyone is welcome.
