James Charles Ashmore (born 2 March 1986) is an English footballer who is currently playing for Worksop Town in the Northern Premier League.

Playing career[edit]

Sheffield United[edit]

A graduate of the Blades Academy who impressed at every junior level after signing at the age of 10, Ashmore is a central midfielder who can also operate in wide areas and at full-back. He was offered a one-year professional deal in the summer of 2007 and has been a regular fixture in United's reserves.[1]

Along with teammates Colin Marrison and Ryan Gyaki, Ashmore played as a trialist for Football League One side Yeovil Town at Huish Park against Welton Rovers in the Somerset Premier Cup on 3 October 2006.

Ashmore started the 2007–08 season on the fringes of the first team squad playing in a friendly against Worksop and impressed alongside established first team players in a midfield holding role.[2] During the subsequent pre-season tour of Ireland, Ashmore scored a goal for the senior side; a 15-yard volley against Portadown after coming on as a 74th-minute substitute.[3]

James joined Macclesfield Town on loan in January 2008 for the remainder of the season,[4] during which time he played eight games. He was released by Sheffield United at the end of the season.[5]


Having been released by Sheffield United, Ashmore signed a one-year deal with their partner club, Ferencváros, managed by former Blade and Everton defender Craig Short.[6]

Worksop Town[edit]

In September 2010, Ashmore returned to England to sign for Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division outfit Worksop Town. Due to issues over international clearance, He had to wait until the 9 October to make his debut, coming on as a substitute for Jamie Jackson in the 3-0 win over Ashton United.
