Profile:
Full name: Ashton John Taylor

Signed a Pre-Contract agreement on 28th May 2014. Ashton quickly settled into the team and showed improvement week on week, making himself a key member of a strong squad. Left Pittodrie at the end of the 2016-2017 season to seek a new club in England - closer to home.
After two seasons with Northampton Town, Ash rejoined the Dons on 4th June 2019, signing on for a further two seasons. On 17th May 2021 it was announced that despite having a healthy defensive record, Ash's contract would not be extended further, thus ending his second spell at the club.
Ash next joined Walsall, but on 14th January 2022 moved to rejoin Derek McInnes who had recently taken charge at Kilmarnock.
