Inside Forward Tommy Ashe joined Saints in November 1937 aged just 17 from local side Mossvale Strollers, a fine feeder team for Saints in the early 20th century. Before his career could really get going however, WWII broke out in September 1939 and football put on an “unofficial” status.
Ashe was released in December 1944, but made a good reputation for himself at Dumbarton after the war, appearing almost 50 times for the Sons. Tommy remained in Paisley all his days, and passed away in 1997 aged 76 in the town.
