HOT-SHOT: Ash Watson
HOT-SHOT: Ash Watson

THERE'S no stopping Knuzden Youth hot-shot Ash Watson.

The striker has scored a staggering 33 goals so far this season for the Under 13s - and there is still plenty of the season left to add to his tally. He has already surpassed the 30 goals he notched last season.

"I have got 33 and I would like 40," said the Mount Carmel pupil.

And his favourite goal? "It was from the half-way line - I enjoyed that one!"

But he has unselfish aims. "I would rather win the league though, I think we are around third in the VMI Accrington Junior League at the moment."
