“A wonderful day of racing for the team. We highlighted the support that Ascot United provide to us and that the boys are very proud to play in the Ascot United colours”.Donna Molyneux, Team Secretary
The Racecourse chose to name the first race of the day after the team, namely ‘The Ascot Racecourse Supports Ascot United Warriors Maiden Hurdle Race’. The team’s captain, Brett Edge, and goalkeeper, Jack Lumsden, presented the prizes to the winning owner, trainer and jockey of the race. They were interviewed and also got the opportunity to select the best turned out horse of the race.
The Warriors squad were also honoured with a page in the day’s programme with coverage on the team and their recent friendly with St Albans.
