(PRWEB UK) 15 February 2013
Digital Sports Group today announced that the total weekly reach for the PFA Facebook fan page of Ashley Cole has increased by over 65%, making it the fastest growing Ashley Cole page on Facebook. The Facebook page has become a thriving hub for the Chelsea defender since its launch and now boasts a vibrant and rapidly growing community of fans. The Facebook page, along with Ashley Cole player profile on football.co.uk, provide the only online location of the official PFA biography, lifetime stats, news and high resolution gallery.
An experienced left back who has been first choice for Chelsea and England since his arrival at Stamford Bridge in August 2006 in an exchange deal involving William Gallas.
A product of Arsenal’s Academy, Ashley broke into the Gunners’ first-team squad in 2000 and quickly became known for his high-energy attacking displays. Initially featuring on the left wing, a loan spell at Crystal Palace helped develop his defensive game and his progress was such that he made his international debut against Albania in 2001.
Having won two Barclays Premier League titles and three FA Cups at Highbury, he joined Chelsea, where he was quick to make a troublesome left-back position his own. Since arriving at Stamford Bridge he has added four further FA Cup winners’ medals to his collection, making him the most decorated player in the competition’s history.
Ashley completed his first ever-present league campaign in 2010-11, while in 2011-12 became a UEFA Champions League winner, scoring his penalty in the decisive shoot-out against Bayern Munich.
Ashley is England’s most capped full back ever, having made 100 appearances for his country by February 2013
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say, “Cole really has no shortage of fans after his performances for Chelsea and England this season and we can see that by the success of his PFA Facebook page.”
“All of us here at Digital Sports Group are proud we've had the opportunity to work with The PFA to give the fans a fantastic and unique fan resource for Ashley Cole.”
DSG became the official digital partner of the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) earlier this year and have since launched a number of Player Profile fan pages on social media site Facebook as well as providing official player pages on their football news site football.co.uk.
