Adel Williams says: I still remember my dad always talking about how good Ken Ashcroft was as a hooker and someone you could rely on every game.
He would say "he has heart,"
Winning most of the scrums.
The good old days as my dad would say now when it was a tough game. (08/05/2017)
Roy Horrigan says: Remember the day at the old Sports Ground when Ken won 21 straight scrums against Ian Walsh who was the Australian hooker at the time. St.George still won , but Ken was a clever competitor. A pastry cook I believe. (08/02/2018)
