Ipswich Sunday Football League Team of the Season 2015/2016
Ash King plays 100th match 100th Appearance for King Ash King makes his 100th appearance for the club

Ash joined as one of a group of players from Wickham Market Youth. He made his debut in a 6-0 defeat to Ipswich Thistle in what would turn out to be one of the toughest seasons in Playford history, eventually ending in relegation.

He was part of the squad that won the 2014 Rm2 division title, making the left side of a three-pronged attack his own, and producing his best form in front of goal, scoring seven. Two of those were scored against Chantry Phoenix, in one of Playford's greatest turnarounds. It had been an abject performance from the team and with less than ten minutes to go Playford were 4-3 down and facing their first defeat of the season. However, before the game was out Ash, who took over free-kick duties during the game, proceeded to curl in two twenty-yard free-kicks with pinpoint accuracy, leaving the 'keeper without a chance and winning the game.

Ash has played in every single position for the club and is one of the teams most reliable performers. In the last couple of seasons he has really begun to flourish, regularly putting in strong performances that have lead him to be runner up for Player's Player of the Season twice in three seasons.
