Local lad, Ashley (18 years old) from Purbrook, caught the eye on the right wing at the weekend after being introduced for the second half at the Keepmoat Stadium.
He was an influential performer as the Blues recovered from 2-0 down to claim a remarkable 4-3 triumph, with two last-gasp goals.

Pompey’s academy striker, Ashley Harris, has been nominated for another Goal of the Month award following his 20-yard strike against Cardiff City..
Harris, 18, previously won the award for September 2011 for a stunning bicycle-kick from 20-yards out – a goal that could’ve won Goal of the Season in the Premier League. Now Harris has been nominated again for his thunderous strike against Cardiff.
The youngster has been on the bench a number times for the first team, and made his first team debut as a second-half substitute in Pompey’s 4-1 home win against Birmingham City last month.
Another academy player, George Colson, came third place for November’s Goal of the Month as well.

Eight fabulous strikes have made it on to the shortlist for LFE’s March Goal of the Month contest.
Portsmouth’s James Jennings won in February with close to forty per cent of the public vote.
His Pompey team-mate and September’s winner Ashley Harris is in the mix this month alongside seven other Apprentice players who have been banging in the goals for Football League Clubs in the Youth Alliance and Academy Leagues.
