TOWN CLOSE IN ON RECORD WPL STRIKE RATE AT PRESTATYN

Saturday 26th April (ko 3.30pm)
Prestatyn Town v Aberystwyth Town

Aberystwyth Town travel North for their final Corbettsports Welsh Premier League game of the season at Bastion Gardens, Prestatyn on Saturday knowing a draw would ensure a seventh place finish. However, following Tuesday night's six goal haul against Port Talbot, a Club Record has also come into focus.


The Black and Greens have now scored an astonishing 71 goals in 2013/4, which is already their second best ever WPL goal haul. Aber's most potent season to date was their first, in 1992/3, when they scored 85 goals, but that was over a 38 game season, giving a goals per game ratio of 2.24. A single goal up at Prestatyn would give Aber a ratio of 2.25 goals per game, giving this year's Team the Club's Record WPL Strike Rate. Hot Shot Chris Venables is also 90 minutes away from winning the WPL Golden Boot award: his 24 goals leave him 3 ahead of his closest rivals with one game to go.

Aber should certainly be confident of scoring at Bastion Gardens following Tuesday's result, but the match is a huge one for the hosts who know they need a win to ensure WPL safety once and for all, and they have shown signs of being back on form since the return of the mercurial Andy Parkinson following injury. Bastion Gardens has never been the happiest of hunting grounds for Town so there will be no danger of complacency.

Manager Ian Hughes used his squad well on Tuesday, with Peter Hoy deputising for Mike Lewis in goal, Sion James and Bari Morgan making claims for a start and subs Tom Shaw, Luke Sherbon and the goalscoring Rhydian Davies having positive impacts when they came off the bench. Three games in eight days means squad rotation may again be an option for the Manager.

The Coach leaves Park Avenue at 10.30am for a 3.30pm kick off.

BIGGEST CROWDS FOR TEN YEARS - THE PARK AVENUE ATTENDANCE BOOM
Updated 23 Apr : 13:39 by admin
Aber Town's excellent crowd of 463 for last night's home triumph over Port Talbot ensured that the Black and Greens' attendance figures for 2013/4 are the highest for ten years.

Last night's attendance brought the overall figure for the Corbettsports Welsh Premier League (WPL) matches to 6432, or an average over 16 games of 402. This represents a 21% increase on last season, and the highest average since 2003/4.


"It is clear that the attacking style of football Manager Ian Hughes has brought to the Club is popular with the supporters," said Club Marketing Director Thomas Crockett, and the Players and Management have regularly paid tribute to the support which has helped ensure Town have the second best home playing record in the WPL.

"Friday night matches help enormously to boost WPL crowd figures, and it is also true that we have put on a number of Promotional events this season, such as a Sponsors Day, two Schools Visits, four Student Promotions, a Family Fun Day and a Club Photograph," said Crockett, "so the hard work of Tom Bates, Stuart Jones, Luke Crocker and Chris Heffernan on the Marketing Committee has been a really important factor in our attendance boom."

"On behalf of the Club I'd like to take this opportunity to thank our supporters for their fantastic loyalty over the season, and reassure them we are doing everything possible to ensure we can bring Europa League football to Park Avenue in July."

ABER'S SIXY FOOTBALL EARNS TERRIFIC WIN OVER PORT TALBOT

Tuesday 22nd April
Aberystwyth Town 6 Port Talbot Town 1

Aberystwyth Town gave a wonderful performance this evening in their last home game of a fantastic 2013/4 season, handing out a six goal hammering to ragged Port Talbot thanks to goals from Chris Venables (2), Geoff Kellaway (2), Mark Jones and Rhydian Davies.

The evening started on a high with a Club photo of the 100 plus players representing Aberystwyth Town at all levels taken on the field before kick off, and a bumper crowd of 463 was present to cheer Town on. Peter Hoy replaced the injured Mike Lewis in goal, but was rarely troubled by the visitors, as Town dominated early proceedings. Venables was unlucky to have a goal disallowed for offside, but soon afterwards Antonio Corbisiero flicked a ball into the area which Kellaway got to first to open the scoring on 16 minutes. Two minutes later Venables was the creator for Mark Jones to double the lead with an emphatic volley, and on 27 minutes Venables finally scored himself with a free kick from outside the area which sailed into the top corner. Talbot were resorting to some disappointing agricultural tactics which saw Adie Harries and Ashley Evans booked for lazy fouls, and Venables and Mark Jones again went close before Jones chased down keeper Steven Hall, creating the chance for Kellaway to slot home a fourth a minute before the break.

The visitors finally managed an effort on target three minutes after the restart when Rhys Griffiths headed home Jason Bertorelli's right wing cross, but Aber's pacy attacks and hard work off the ball ensured that a comeback was never on the cards. Griffiths had a goal disallowed, and Bertorelli shot horribly wide from a good position, but then Town reasserted themselves with Mark Jones twice going close, and sub Luke Sherbon volleying wide. Griffiths had three more tame attempts easily saved by stand in Hoy, and then the lumbering Harries let down his colleagues by earning a second yellow card with four minutes to go and was sent to the dressing rooms alone. With Wyn Thomas and Stuart Jones in superb form at the back, Town then burst back into life in injury time. Craig Williams' left wing cross was touched in at the near post by young sub Rhydian Davies, who gave a superb example to all the Academy players present by celebrating in front of the Dias Stand, and then an identical move saw Hall spill Davies' header for Venables to pounce for an astonishing 6-1 final scoreline.

Aber certainly ended their home season for 2013/4 on a high, and now two visits to North East Wales loom, the first being for a game at Bastion Gardens, Prestatyn this Saturday, for a 3.30pm kick off. On this superb form Town need fear no-one.

TOWN LOOKING FORWARD TO LAST HOME GAME TONIGHT

Aberystwyth Town v Port Talbot Town

Aberystwyth Town look to wrap up an excellent home season tomorrow night with a mouth watering Corbettsports Welsh Premier League match against Port Talbot Town at Park Avenue, which gives Town fans the chance to celebrate the Black and Greens qualification for the Europa League.


The Seasiders and the Steelmen drew 1-1 last Friday night in an entertaining game in which Rhys Griffiths' late equaliser cancelled out Geoff Kellaway's classy opener, and lifted Port Talbot out of the bottom two. A win for Talbot tomorrow would virtually guarantee their Welsh Premier League status, while Aber need the points to stay on track for a top seven finish.

Another intrigue in the game sees two of the Welsh Premier League's top goalscorers going head to head in the Race for the Golden Boot. Aber's Chris Venables has scored 22 goals, while Rhys Griffiths is on 20. Sandwiched in between is Mark Connolly from Bala, who notched a hat trick yesterday and is now on 21.

Before the game the Black and Greens will celebrate a memorable season by taking a photograph of all their teams together on the field of play. A large crowd is expected on the night, and Town fans will have the chance to vote for their Player of the Season before kick off at 7.30pm. Don't miss out tomorrow - you'll miss us over the Summer!
