Can you remember defender Ashley Fickling?
When the highly-rated Sheffield United youngster and England Under 18’s skipper signed for The Mariners in March 1995, much was expected of the versatlie defender.
Fickling was a regular in the Town team during the 1996/97 campaign, playing in a number of positons across the back four. The Sheffield-born player even popped up with a couple of goals against Norwich City and West Brom. However, following Brian Laws’ sacking and the club’s relegation from Division One, Fickling didn’t feature once under Alan Buckley during the 1997/98 double winning season, instead spending time on loan at Darlington before re-joining Brian Laws at Scunthorpe United.
Where is he now?
Fickling is currently the senior academy physiotherapist at Sheffield Wednesday, where he has been since 2007.
