Black and Greens Manager Ian Hughes has been reflecting on Saturday's 1-1 draw at Caersws with atfc.org.uk:
"It was great to take a mixed team to Caersws yesterday. We as a Club have a responsibility to give the best local Players a platform to perform. The game, performance and result have shown how close some of those Players are to challenging for the First Team Squad."
Town ended the game with seven teenagers on the field. Jack Rimmer, Ryan Edwards and Tom Jones started the game, with Liam Lewis, Gwion Pugh Jones, Sion Evans, Gwion Evans and Alex Davies appearing off the bench to show that Aber Town's Academy, ran by Gari Lewis and Russell Hughes Pickering, has been doing a great job producing a conveyer belt of young talent.
Hughes continued: "With the twelve team format (in the Dafabet Welsh Premier League) there are very rarely any dead games to blood young Players, so we as a Club need to utilise games such as today's Friendly to do this."
"Aber Town's Values and Beliefs are to play as many locals as possible, whilst maintaining a challenge at the Top End of the Welsh Premier League. It was good to see TNS giving a number of young players a chance at Caernarfon at the weekend, and we have done the same this afternoon."
Some of those Players are likely to feature in Aber's next Friendly at Porthmadog, so Black and Greens fans wanting to get a further glimpse of some stars of the future should make their way Northwards to Y Traeth next Saturday for the 2.30pm kick off.
