Mae CPD Tref Aberystwyth yn falch i gyhoeddi arwyddiad John Owen am dymor JD Cymru Premier 2023/24 -- ei 6eg dymor gyda'r clwb dros dau sbel.
Aberystwyth Town FC are pleased to confirm the retention of forward John Owen for the 2023/24 JD Cymru Premier campaign -- his 6th season in Black and Green over two spells.
30-year-old Welsh-speaking John first joined Town in January 2017 from Llandudno and immediately flashed his ability to the Green Army, becoming a favourite over the following 18-months, making 41 appearances and scoring 10 goals before a further spell at Llandudno, Cefn Druids and Porthmadog.
John re-joined the Seasiders in January 2021 and has made 65 appearances since, adding a further 8 goals. He was awarded Cymru Premier Player of the Month for November 2021 following two winning goals in consecutive 1-0 victories over The New Saints and Cardiff Met respectively.
The 2022/23 season however was frustrating for John, as injuries limited his contributions on the pitch. Now with over 100 club appearances, John is looking to push on get back to his best.
John told us:
"I'm delighted to be signing another at Aber. Seeing that we have kept the core group together from last season and adding to it, I'm confident that we are in a good place to kick on as a group. We showed glimpses of how good we can be last season and I feel with consistency, we can look to finish in a good position.
It was personally a very frustrating season for me, missing most of the season with injuries. I now feel I have the opportunity to show what I can do again and repay the faith the team and Taff showed in me last year when available.
This season my goal is to play as many games as possible and maintain a high level of performance throughout the season. I'm confident that if we stick together as we always do and keep working hard for each other, it will be a really positive season for everyone at the club."
Manager Anthony Williams said:
"It's great to get John back for another season. Last season was quite frustrating as he had several niggling injuries that hampered his performances for the majority of the season. However, he showed exactly what he's capable of after the split -- being a very physical and strong player in forward areas.
He's been working very hard in the off-season and hopefully he can hit the ground running ready for this season's campaign."
Croeso nol, John! // Welcome back, John!
