Ashton United have signed striker Lee Gaskell from Darlington.

Gaskell joins the Robins having played for Darlington since September 2015 after joining from Ramsbottom United.

The prolific scorer notched over 100 times for the Rams during his two stints with the club.

Gaskell made his debut for the Quakers against Marine at Heritage park, and in his first away game scored a hat-trick against Mickleover Sports in a 5-1 win.

The 31-year-old won the League’s Golden Boot award at the end of the 2013/14 season after helping Ramsbottom to the NPL Premier Division title.

Gaskell scored on his Ashton debut for the Robins in their pre-season 1-1 draw at Mossley last weekend.

Ashton begin their Evo-Stik Premier Division campaign this weekend at Frickley Athletic.
