Aberystwyth Town vs Haverfordwest County
JD Cymru Premier
Tuesday 4th May – 7.45pm KO
MATCH BEHIND CLOSED DOORS
Aberystwyth Town’s home campaign for 2020/21 comes to an end with the visit of Haverfordwest County Tuesday night.
The Seasiders have had a mixed campaign at Park Avenue this term, although results at Park Avenue have overall been better than those on the road. From the 15 matches played at home so far this season, Aber have won 5, drawn 3 and lost 7 meaning that 18 of a total 28 points have been won on home soil.
Highlights of the home campaign have included back-to-back home victories over Haverfordwest & Newtown when football returned in March, the recent 5-1 victory over Cefn Druids (the largest win of the season) and a thrilling 2-2 draw with The New Saints back in October when many locally based players impressed against the title contenders.
Both Aber and Haverfordwest have not had the results that either side would have wanted since the league split in early April. Haverfordwest have drawn one and lost 4 of their 5, whilst Aber have two wins, a draw and two defeats to show from theirs. Both sides come into this game on the back of a defeat – Haverfordwest going down 2-0 at Cae Y Castell against Flint Town United on Saturday, whilst Aber suffered a 5-1 reverse at Cardiff Met University on Friday night.
The last meeting between the two clubs came on 13th April, when a Ben Fawcett goal was the difference in a tightly contested match. Haverfordwest have won both matches at Bridge Meadow between the two sides so far this season, whilst Aber won the previous match at Park Avenue back in March thanks to a stoppage time Lee Jenkins goal.
There are still two matches left for the Black & Greens after this one – both away from home – against Flint Town United on Saturday before a trip to Latham Park to take on Playoff chasing Newtown the following weekend (15th May).
It has not been a season that anyone would wish to see repeated, thanks to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, and the Black & Green Army have been sorely missed at Park Avenue. Your support has still been felt and appreciated by all at the club, and we hope that when the new season kicks off in the autumn, it will be with the Park Avenue gates open again and with our fans back inside this famous old ground.
Hopefully, this is the last Cymru Premier match that is played behind closed doors at Park Avenue, but for now you can follow all the action on our Twitter feed @AberystwythTown, which will be active again following this weekend’s social media boycott. It has not been the same at Park Avenue without the Black & Green Army and we cannot wait to see you all! Until then, thank you for your continued support!
