Alleged remarks: Lee Ashcroft

Have your say

Former Preston North End winger Lee Ashcroft could be investigated by the FA over alleged sexist comments made towards a female football coach during a non-league football match.

Gresley first-team coach Hannah Dingley claims Ashcroft – who is the current manager of Northwich Victoria – used threatening and abusive language based on gender towards her, when the two sides met a week last Saturday at the Victoria Stadium.

It is alleged that the ex-West Bromwich Albion and England Under-21s international made a number of comments towards Dingley when she celebrated Gresley’s second goal and then again when the Vics equalised. The match ended in a 2-2 draw.
