Ashton is the bolter in the Scorchers squad, with the teenage spinner earning a Scorchers deal as well as his first State contract with the Warriors. The Victorian is a left-arm orthodox bowler who is also handy with the bat and a great fielder.
Ashton comes from a cricketing family with his father John a former player in Victoria’s Premier District competition. He leaves his parents and two younger brothers in Melbourne to head to Perth after he represents Australia at the ICC Under 19 World Cup in Queensland.
Ashton is currently studying Arts and Law at Deakin University, and is a keen fisherman. He is looking forward to getting out in a boat when he arrives in WA with some of his new team mates. A keen fan of AFL club St Kilda, he enjoys hip-hop music and lists his favourite movie as Law Abiding Citizen and cricket hero as Sachin Tendulkar.
