Wade becomes a hero not villain for Ashford
Joe Wade scored on his Ashford Town debut to give the Homelands club a 1-0 victory over Stamford on Saturday, writes Stephen McCartney.
It ended Ashford's eight game streak without a win, and Wade's winner came three minutes before the break.
Wade turned Ashford Town fans blue when he scored Bromley's winning goal after 81 minutes in an FA Cup first qualifying round replay in September.
Wade played for Bromley Common based Bromleians Sports in the British Energy Kent County League last season, lives in Farnborough, Kent.
He started five games for Bromley earlier this season, making three substitute appearances. His only goal for the Hayes Lane outfit was the only goal of the game to send Ashford Town crashing out of the FA Cup.
Wade admitted he had turned down offers from Crawley Town and Lewes and was recently speaking to Kent League leaders Cray Wanderers about a move, but has opted to join Dr Martens League Eastern Division outfit Ashford Town.
