Ben Ashton

Lead Coach

As a child, I always had a love and passion for sport. I’d spend every possible minute of the day, after school and in the school holidays, playing an array of sports outside my house on the cobbles from daylight until night. The only time my parents could get me in was for tea and even then I would be reluctant to leave my mates. During the winter period, we converted my garage into the local streets games room, where we all put money together to buy a full-sized table tennis table, pool table and darts board. Then in summer, we had a basketball net and football net that we used out the front and sometimes in back gardens.

Originally from Yorkshire, I decided to make the trip to the North-East to study Sports Management at Northumbria University, with the intention to run my own business that had something to do with sport, at that point I had no clue what exactly that would be! During my placement in my second year, I was lucky enough to meet Jordan and be provided with the opportunity to work alongside him at Next Generation, I snapped at the chance. After securing first degree honours I was offered to work full-time as the marketing/sales manager. From that point to now it has been a steep learning curve but I am loving every minute of it.

In my spare time, I play for Gosforth Bohemians and go to the gym as much as possible at Fitness Fraternity in Heaton. When I am not participating in a sport I watch it. This includes travelling back to Leeds to use my season ticket to watch them play at Elland Road and watching pretty much any sport on TV.

I have worked a range of jobs including, sports coach, lifeguard, waiter, bartender and pot wash at my family owned restaurant.
