Aberystwyth Town are delighted to announce they have agreed terms with popular Goalkeeper Mike Lewis to remain at Park Avenue for 2015/6.
Mike has matured into one of the most highly respected goalkeepers in the Welsh Premier League, and has the knack of pulling off astonishing saves at key times. His stops have on a number of occasions kept Aber in crucial games they have subsequently gone on to win, and as such he is a highly prized member of the Squad.
He was brought to Park Avenue by then Manager Tomi Morgan in June 2012, and in his first season conceded only 29 goals in 22 games, making a huge contribution to keeping Aber in the Welsh Premier League. The following season he helped Aber to a Welsh Cup Final, and last term he represented the Black and Greens in the UEFA Europa League, and was an almost ever present in the side which finished Fourth and reached the UEFA Europa League Play Off Final. He also won the Welsh Cup Player of the Round after saving three penalties in Aber's Fourth Round victory in Holywell in February.
Cardiff-based Mike, who holds a Masters Degree in Sports Management from the University of South Wales, had previously spent two seasons at Carmarthen Town, where he won Supporters Player of the Year, Afan Lido and Newport County, and was at Swansea City as a Youngster. He is also a Goalkeeping Coach who until recently worked at Cardiff City's Academy. Mike has made 141 WPL Appearances in five seasons, 81 of them for the Black and Greens.
