Chatham Town striker Moses Ashikodi walks off pitch during game

By Craig Tucker

There were extraordinary scenes on Saturday when Chatham striker Moses Ashikodi walked off the pitch after a row with his own team-mate.

Ashikodi had only been on for seven minutes when he fell out with Ricky Freeman and decided he’d had enough.

Chats had made all three substitutions and played the last 15 minutes of the Ryman League Division 1 South game against Greenwich with 10 men.

The former West Ham and Watford striker, signed by ex-boss Darren Anslow shortly before his sacking, has played his final game for Chatham.

Shocked Chats boss Paul Piggott said: “He lost his head. He had an altercation with Ricky Freeman – it wasn’t good.

“Something upset him – I don’t know what it was – and he walked off. I’ve never see that happen before. It’ll be put to bed and we’ll move on.

“Is he finished here? In a word, yes. He’s been a proven player at a decent level. It’s a shame it happened but it’s dealt with.”
