Second to return is Star Man Joe Phillips!
He originally signed for Aberystwyth Town in July 2017 having played for the same Stourport Swifts side as Ryan Wollacott, for whom he scored 16 goals from 46 appearances in 2016/7.
Joe made some prominent contributions to Town's pre-season of 2017, not least when he scored a terrific goal with a low drive against Hull City Under 23s in August. He became a permanent fixture in the First Team Squad of 2017/8, scoring a perfect hat trick against Connah's Quay in January 2018 (highlights here). Joe was part of the Town side which reached the Welsh Cup Final in 2018 and his thrilling performances down the wings and behind the strikers had the supporters singing his name with glee.
Joe’s best moment last season was a stunning goal at home to TNS which was very unfortunately disallowed, and although he left Park Avenue for a brief spell at Alvechuch last season, he is back, with his attacking flair expected to thrill Black and Green supporters further in 2019/20.
Welcome back Joe … and we are also delighted to retain Joe’s father Mark who remained a loyal supporter of the Club even after Joe’s departure.
