Nathan Wesley Ashton (born 30 January 1987 in Plaistow, London) is an English footballer who is currently with Dover Athletic. He is an ex-England youth international, who had several call-ups to the England Under-20 squad.

In the early part of the 2004-05 season Ashton had an ankle injury, but having shaken this off, he made his first appearances for Charlton Athletic's youth team in the 2005-06 season. Having been named on the bench the previous match, Nathan made his first-team debut in the League Cup against Carlisle United on 19 September 2006.

Ashton signed for Fulham in August 2007,[1] making his debut in the 3-1 win against Reading in November 2007. He never played for the club again.

On 27 March 2008, he joined Crystal Palace on loan until the end of the season,[2] though he only featured for 45 minutes for the Eagles.

He joined Wycombe Wanderers on 25 July on a two-year deal, though he left on 30 May 2009 with his contract being cancelled by mutual consent after Ashton expressed a desire to play football more regularly.[3]

On Thursday 29 October 2009, it was announced that he had joined AFC Wimbledon on a short term contract, with a view to a longer deal.

He made his debut for AFC Wimbledon against Chester City on Saturday 31 October at the Deva Stadium. However, he left the Dons in search of first team football just two weeks later.

In 2010, Nathan Ashton was charged with rape, after two girls, who were aged 12 at the time, went back to his flat, and one them later reported being raped by Ashton. Ashton invited the girls to his flat around midday in April when he approached them in High Wycombe and started talking to them. Ashton said he spoke to each of them separately in his bedroom - “just general conversation” and that they then left. He said he did not commit the crime. The jury returned a not-guilty verdict.[4][5]

In December 2010 Ashton joined Isthmian League Premier Division side Cray Wanderers scoring on his debut. His stay there, however, did not last long and he soon joined Conference South side Dover Athletic, where he made his debut in a 2-1 victory against Dorchester Town. His first goal for the club came during a final day 4-1 victory over St Albans City.
