353 Ashley Probets
Position : Midfield
Played : 2004-05
Appearances : 9
Goals : 0
Ashley was a youngster just released from Arsenal and signed on the recommendation of their youth coach Steve Bould, a former team-mate of Parkin's at Stoke.
Well it's no wonder Arsenal rely on foreign talent if Ashley is the calibre of young English player they attract. Flung straight into the side he offered absolutely nothing though he was probably playing out of position.. He wasn't even match-fit which made his inclusion ahead of Paddy McCourt a joke. I think his last "performance" was in the 1-5 rout at Northampton in October. In December he and the club decided to call it quits and his contract was cancelled due to "homesickness".
Ashley signed for Welling United and settled into the role of left back. He has since pottered around the southern non-league scene without achieving very much playing for VCD Athletic, Chatham Town and currentlly Thamesmead Town.
