Gobo Ashley, a slow-medium left-armer, played once for South Africa in the second-ever Test against England at Cape Town in 1888-89. Although South Africa lost by an innings, Ashley took 7 for 95 in England's only innings. The match was also his first-class debut. He played twice for Western Province the following season.
