Further wickets fell quickly, leaving Redditch on 24-3 after six overs.
Matt Harvey was last man standing in the 12th over until run-out for 27.
Ashton knocked off the runs with only a minor scare as Will Archer (29 not out) was given the benefit of an lbw decision, leaving Richard Cooper 25no.
Evesham Casuals conceded against The Boxmen as they were unable to field a side.
