Ash Palmer - Defender


Player Profile

Centre half Ash joined striker Frank Mulhern in making the move from Guiseley in the summer. Ash spent two years with the Lions, making more than 70 appearances and captaining the side.

He previously spent time with Barnsley FC, Scunthorpe and Buxton, but made his name as a highly-rated defender at North Ferriby United, helping them to win promotion from the National League North in 2016, winning the Player of the Year award in the same season.

In the 2018/19 season, Ash was a crucial part of County’s defence that won the National League North, captaining the Hatters on certain occasions as well as proving a goal threat, even scoring the opener in the 3-0 win at Nuneaton which clinched promotion.

Following promotion to the National League, Palmer remained a crucial part of the defence, making 40 appearances and scoring six goals in 2019/20. In his first two seasons at the Club, Ash missed five games across two seasons.

The centre-half enjoyed another successful year last season, making 41 appearances in both a back three and back four, and matching his tally for the previous season by scoring six times.

Ash’s Stockport County Appearance Number (SCAN) is: 1372
