Ashton Hulme - Our Brave Academy Goalkeeper

7 January 2021

Everyone is rooting for our Academy youngster after bone cancer diagnosis

Everyone at Crewe Alexandra Football Club has been left shocked and devastated by the news that our Under-12 Academy goalkeeper, Ashton Hulme, has been diagnosed with a rare type of bone cancer, known as Osteosarcoma.

Ashton is an extremely popular member of the club’s Academy and not only is he a talented young goalkeeper, but an exceptional young lad as well.

This week, Ashton has begun his Chemotherapy and everyone at the club and beyond wishes him a really speedy recovery.

Everyone is thinking of Ashton and his family at this difficult time but we know he has the courage and bravery to see it through.

The club and family would like to thank all those who have sent in goodwill messages and made donations to the JustGiving page. Your thoughts and generosity have made a tremendous difference to Ashton already. It has lifted his spirits and we are all extremely grateful.

Aidan Callan, the Club’s Academy Manager says: “This news about Ashton
has completely devastated everyone here at the club. Ashton is
not only a talented young goalkeeper, but more importantly a brilliant young
lad full of personality, energy, politeness and is extremely well liked by
everyone here at the Academy.

"Ashton has the support of an amazing family, great friends and I know from the messages received this week, everyone is behind him. We will be there for him every step of the way, doing anything we can. The Football family is really pulling together for
Ashton and his family."


Our thoughts are very much with Ashton and his parents, Vicky and Wayne, and also his young team-mates and friends.

If you would like to make a donation please follow the link for the justgiving page.

If you wish to send a card or message to Ashton and his family. Please address it to Aidan Callan, Reasheath, Alexandra Park, Wettenhall Road, Nantwich, CW5 6DF.
