In less than three months, a new club was formed that was allowed into the Northern Ford Premiership with Aston as player-coach, and a completely new semi-professional team. This must have seemed a long way from the day, only 18 months earlier, when Aston won the Lance Todd Trophy in the Rugby League Challenge Cup Final at Wembley Stadium, inspiring Sheffield Eagles to a famous 17-8 win over Wigan. Aston is the Chief Executive and Head Coach at the new Sheffield Eagles club, who play in the Championship. In May 2011 he was named as the new Head Coach of the Irish National Team. He was awarded an honorary doctorate by Sheffield Hallam University in 2012 for his services to sport in Sheffield. He is the father of the rugby league stand-off or scrum-half; Cory Aston. (en)
