Aberystwyth Town Football Club are delighted to announce that attacking midfielder Joe Phillips has re-signed with the club for the 2018/19 season.
Joe joined the club last summer, having scored 16 goals in 46 appearances for Stourport Swifts the previous season, and made an instant impact at Park Avenue. He got off to a flying start with the black and greens, scoring against Hull City in a pre-season friendly and went on to make a total of 29 JD Welsh Premier League appearances during the 2017/18 season, scoring 5 goals in the process.
Joe's most memorable moment of his Aber career undoubtedly came last January, as he scored a perfect hat-trick (header, right foot, left foot) to help the seasiders thump second placed Connah's Quay Nomads 4-2 in the final game before the league split, which you can view again here.
Known for his pace and trickery, Aber's starman is most famous for playing on the right wing, but can fill a variety of roles along the front line due to his brilliant ability with both feet. In addition to his league contribution last season, Joe also scored three pivotal goals during Town's run to the JD Welsh Cup Final with a brace against Bala Town and a glancing header away at West Wales rivals Carmarthen Town at the Quarter Final stage.
Everyone at the club would like to extend a warm welcome back to Joe for the new season, and you can see him in action in Aber's next pre-season friendly match at home to AFC Telford United on Friday evening at Park Avenue.
