Initially recruited as a defender, Jason Ashby was trialled in a different role as a wingman and midfielder where he showed promise. He was given an opportunity early on in the season, playing five games for the senior side. Increased time in the midfield for Essendon VFL saw him develop immensely as a player and the club is excited for what he will add to the team in 2016.

Season By Season

Season By Season

Ashby broke through to make his debut last season and registered five games for the year. The half-back impressed in his second game, when he gathered 22 disposals against Fremantle at Patersons Stadium and wasn't overawed. The poised and calm running defender has shown an ability to shut down an opponent while providing rebound. His promise was rewarded when he signed a two-year contract through to the end of 2016.
