Mitchell Ashmead scoops another Star Man award for his family
IT was another case of a family affair at The Post Star Man awards at the Fry Club.
Mitchell Ashmead, 21, of Brislington Reserves, followed in the footsteps of his dad, Julian, by picking up the accolade – 22-years after his father's award.
But Julian joked he had some way to go yet before he could be the toast of the family as Mitchell's uncle, Jason, picked up two awards while playing for Highridge.
Julian, 47, from Broomhill, played central midfield for Langton Court in the 1990s and won his trophy following a game against Fry Club.

Twenty-two years on and Mitchell, like his dad a central midfielder, turned out at the Fry Club and was again picked as the Star Man.
Julian said: "The football which was presented to me for being the Star Man still holds pride of place in the living room, long after all my other trophies have long since disappeared into the loft.
"I always said to Mitchell that he could only be compared to me if he won a Star Man award – well, now he has and I'm delighted for him."
Mitchell added: "I've managed to shut my dad up by winning the award, but I've still got to try to emulate my uncle.
"Whether I do get a second is questionable, it's just nice to be picked for this Star Man award."
