Aberystwyth Town are delighted to confirm that Goalkeeper Phil Draper has signed forms to remain at the Club for 2015/6.
Draper, currently recovering from a knee injury, has been a popular Member of the Squad since he joined the Club last summer. Last season he was called on a number of times to stand in for Keeper Mike Lewis, notably in both UEFA Europa League ties against Derry City, where Draper earned high praise for his performance in the first leg after Lewis' sending off. The 24 year old also helped the Club to wins over Cefn Druids in November, at Carmarthen in January, and saved a penalty against Port Talbot seconds after coming on in December. In total he made 2+2 WPL Appearances last season.
Draper originally hails from Llandrindod Wells, and his former clubs include Penrhyncoch, Aberaeron, Aberystwyth University and the Welsh Universities Squad. Draper also once memorably scored a penalty to earn promotion for Builth Wells, whilst playing up front!
The acquisition of Draper brings Ian Hughes' squad up to sixteen players, as the Black and Greens' Manager prepares his Squad for the WPL Kick off on August 22nd.
