Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. George Alan Ashman was an English association footballer, best remembered for some notable managerial successes. Born in Rotherham, Ashman had an undistinguished amateur playing career with Sheffield United F.C. and Nottingham Forest F.C. during the ad hoc competitions of World War II. In 1951, he signed for Carlisle United F.C. for whom he made 207 appearances, scoring 98 goals. In 1958, suffering from cartilage damage, he retired from playing to manage the poultry farm of Mr Monkhouse, one of the club's directors. As a recreation, he managed amateur team Penrith F.C. and when Third Division Carlisle found themselves in need of a manager in February 1963, Mr Monkhouse offered Ashman the job.
