Ascot United welcome home goal scoring ‘hero’

Ascot United have confirmed the return of one of their greats with the news that striker Jon Bennett has re-signed at the Racecourse Ground.

Then 28-year-old Bennett left in October 2013 for Southern League Marlow with the parting words: “No doubt I will be back at Ascot at some point.”

Bennett had been with the Yellamen since he was nine years old according to a 2013 interview with the Bracknell News where he scored 128 goals in 191 games for the first team.
