'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ashton returns to training

After nearly 12 months on the sidelines, Deano looks set for a return to competitive football. Two operations later and plenty of hard work in the gym he is ready for a return to action. Dean joined in with his team mates for the first day of pre-season at the West Ham training ground last Monday.

He suffered a cruel injury, a day before he was due to make his England debut. In a challenge with Shaun Wright-Phillips in training he suffered a broken ankle. Following his return to fitness he will be looking to recapture the form he showed which led him to an international call up in August 2006.

Of course, a lot has gone on down at Upton Park since his injury, new owners, Tevez enquiry and sensationally staving off relegation to the Championship, Ashton will be hoping for a better season all round in the 2007/08 season.

Here, at Crewe Vital we hope pre-season goes well for him and he is back scoring goals in the Premier League in the forthcoming season. I am sure Steve McClaren will also be delighted he is close to a return to action.

Hopefully in the near future he will be back in an England shirt, leading England to Euro 2008 glory!

Really pleased for him. Such a cruel blow to get to where he was (About to play for England!) and suffer such a bad injury. Looks like he's had world class care though and pictures show him looking trim, hopefully the time out won't effect his form too much. One of the, if not the most talented player to ever play for us. I also think he's one of the top three English strikers on form with Rooney & Owen, shame England fans have not yet seen that.

he's a good player but you have to wonder with a stroke of bad luck like that if he's never destined to play for england
