JD Welsh Premier League
Friday 5th April (ko 7.45pm)
Aberystwyth Town v Llanelli
Aberystwyth Town look to continue their superb recent form on Friday night as they host Llanelli in their penultimate home match of 2018/19 (ko 7.45pm). Four wins from their last five games, starting with three points at Llanelli's Stebonheath Ground back in February have helped the Black and Greens surge towards a potential UEFA Europa League Play Off at the end of the season, and victory against the Reds would put Aber back in pole position with three matches still to come.
Goals from Ash Ruane and yet another stunner from Geoff Kellaway earned the Black and Greens a valuable 2-1 away win at Llandudno last time round, leaving Assistant Manager Gavin Allen delighted: "Brilliant, absolutely fantastic: we've ground out a result tonight. I'm not really fussed with the performances these days, it's about getting the three points."
Friday night gives Aber another big opportunity to make a huge stride towards a remarkable end of the season, and Allen added: "We're just trying to put ourselves in the mix (for the European Play Off spot). If we keep going, with Llanelli next time, we'll aim for three points again and let's see what goes on." In a further boost to the Black and Greens, since the Llandudno game Matthew Bishop has returned to fill the vacancy of First Team Manager, ensuring the Club has a strong cohort on its Management Team.
Visitors Llanelli have had a difficult season and will be relegated unless they win at Park Avenue. Town have won all three matches between the two sides to date but will be aware that the Reds have quality players in their roster who can cause problems for any club in the WPL, including onetime Black and Greens Joe Clarke, Chris Jones, Anthony Finselbach and Dan Alfei.
As Aber continue to chase their European dream, come on down and see if they can secure another positive result on Friday evening. Kick off at Park Avenue is at 7:45 pm, and admission costs £8 adults, £5 concessions and £2 for u16's. Please note that as part of our Sponsorship deal we will be offering FREE ENTRY to all Aberystwyth University Students on Friday evening.
