Two more green Legends have signed up for the Club's Leave Your Mark game on Friday 13th May.
Left winger Nigel Nicholas from Preseli signed for Meirion Appleton's side from Maesglas in 1987 and was a consistent performer for the next 15 years, making a total of 301 appearances for Aber, scoring 7 goals. His buccanneering runs down the flank and mesmerising dribbling skills created chance after chance in the days before Assists were counted, and his laid back and likebale nature made him a firm favourite with Black and Green supporters. Although he once had a trial at Chelsea, won a number of trophies at Aber and played in a Welsh Cup Final for Carmarthen he claimed his most memorable game was the Final of his home village Maenclochog's Five a Side Tournament!
Gavin Allen joined Meirion Appleton's Aber side in 1996 after his release from Tranmere Rovers and made a huge impression with 53 WPL goals in his first two seasons at the Club. A Wales Under 21 International and prolific striker who created a brilliant partnership with Ryan Nicholls up front, Gavin went on to make a total of 238 appearances, scoring 113 goals in three spells at the Club over a nine year period, and also played for Bangor City, Barry Town and Carmarthen Town. After settling in the Town, Deiniolen born Gavin went on to serve as Assistant Manager with Penrhyncoch, and currently works at the University of Aberystwyth.
Previously we revealed Meirion Appleton and Tomi Morgan as our two Managers, and Green Legends Donald Kane, Kevin Morrison and Glyndwr Hughes and Ken Williams are also in. We will be revealing further names this week.
