With Aber Town's Leave Your Mark Event only three days away, the Club can confirm the participation of two further Green Legends, in the shape of Mark Devereux and Andy Evans.
Scottish-born "Dev" made 268 appearances for Aber between 1982 and 1997, coming to prominence during Aber's early forays into the Welsh "Abacus" League from 1987 onwards. Part of the 1988 Welsh Intermediate Cup winning side, Mark was a combative defender, and the archetypal "hundred percenter." Somewhat of an unsung hero in a crucial period in the Club's development into a team which could compete at a National Level, Mark is fondly remembered for his winning goal in a Welsh Cup Fourth Round tie at Caernarfon in 1991 which completed a clean sweep of "rebel clubs", following earlier wins at Newtown and Barry.
Andy played 190 full team games for Aber between 1996 and 2009, scoring 52 goals. A Centre forward by trade and Wales Under 21 International he started with Cardiff City, Merthyr Tydfil and Ebbw Vale before joining Aber for his first spell in 1996, and after three goals in seven appearances earned himself a £60,000 move to Barnsley. He went on to play for a number of sides including Osset Town, Frickley Athletic, Chester City, and Mansfield Town before rejoining Aber in 2006/07. He came off the bench in the 2006/07 season's opener against Llanelli in his first game back with the club and was involved in the Welsh Cup run to the 2009 final. Andy is now an invaluable member of the Club's Academy as a Coach, which cements his place as a Green Legend.
Kick off on Friday night is at 7.30pm. It promises to be quite an evening and admission will cost a mere £2, half of which will be donated to the Club's chosen charity Hospice at Home Aberystwyth Volunteers.
