Caernarfon Town vs Aberystwyth Town
JD Cymru Premier
Friday 17th March (KO 7.45pm)
Aber Town hit the road again tonight with The Oval the venue for the Seasiders St. Patricks Day outing, hoping that it is a Green night indeed!
Caernarfon have picked up 7 points so far in Phase 2, with Aber gaining 4 in the same time. The Cofis started the second phase with back to back victories against Haverfordwest and Airbus, before a draw with Flint and then a 1-0 reverse at Pontypridd last weekend.
This means that they currently sit in 8th place, one point behind Haverfordwest in 7th with both teams having played the same amount of games.
There are a couple of familiar faces in the Caernarfon squad this season. Ben Wynne spent the latter half of last season at Aberystwyth University Park Avenue before moving north in the summer, whilst Darren Thomas signed for Aber from Caernarfon back in 2015 during Ian Hughes’ tenure and had a six month spell in Black and Green before returning to The Oval.
Fidel O’Rourke was the teams top scorer in Phase 1, but after hitting 7 goals the loanee has since returned to parent club Liverpool before being loaned out again. Joe Faux and Darren Thomas have both netted 6, whilst Sion Bradley & Ben Wynne have 4 each.
The spoils were shared between the two teams in Phase 1. Caernarfon triumphed 2-1 at the Oval in October thanks to goals from O’Rourke and Marsh-Hughes, with Sam Litchfield replying for Aber. The scoreline was then replicated at Park Avenue in January with Aber the victors this time thanks to goals from Harry Arnison & Niall Flint, whilst Caernarfon’s reply came from Rhys Alun Williams.
The Oval can be found on Marcus Street, Caernarfon and the postcode for your sat-nav is LL55 2HT. Its time for another Friday night on the road with the Black and Greens!
