Aberystwyth Town Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of Miles John from JD Cymru Premier rivals Haverfordwest County. The 25-year-old becomes the latest addition to Gavin Allen’s Seasiders for the 2020/21 season and goes straight into the squad for tomorrow afternoon’s battle with Barry Town United.
A hard-working and versatile player, Miles has plenty of experience in the Welsh Pyramid having represented Port Talbot Town, Cambrian & Clydach and most recently Haverfordwest County, as well as featuring for Merthyr Town of the English Pyramid in 17/18. Away from the pitch and towards the sideline, Miles is a UEFA B License holder and holds a BSc in Football Coaching, Development and Administration having achieved First Class Honours in his studies this summer.
Miles spoke to atfc.org.uk upon his arrival:
What made you decide to join Aberystwyth Town?
The club excites me as they’re a well-established Cymru Premier club. The ambition of getting a Top Six position was set out from Day 1 by Gav and his staff to me on the phone; I want to be a part of reaching this ambition best I can.
Who have you spoken to at the club?
I know a few boys at the club: Owz (Jones), Harri Rowe, Matty Jones and Vealey. They spoke to me and have given nothing but high praise about everyone at the club.
Give our #GreenArmy an idea of your playing style:
I’m a hard and honest worker whatever position I play. I like to get on the ball and play but also get forward as much as I can to help chip in with assists and goals.
And finally, what are your ambitions for the season?
Top 6 is the priority! Personally, I want to get as many minutes as I can to help the team and my own development by testing myself at the highest level in Wales.
All at Park Avenue welcome Miles to the family and look forward to a successful season together – Croeso i Geredigion, Miles!
