Aberystwyth Town FC are delighted to welcome defender Aaron Simpson to the club from league rivals Caernarfon Town FC. Aaron is an experienced player having racked up over 130 JD Cymru Premier appearances to date.
27-year-old Aaron came through the ranks at Wrexham -- his hometown -- before joining Rhyl FC for the 2016/17 season, where he was teammates with then-Wrexham loanee and current Seasider Liam Walsh.
One season at the Belle Vue was followed by four seasons with Cefn Druids where Aaron experienced European Football as the Druids reached the Europa League Qualifying Round in 2018, facing FK Riteriai of Lithuania -- with Aaron playing the full 180 minutes as Druids narrowly lost 2-1 on aggregate.
Aaron joined Caernarfon Town ahead of the 2021/22 season and spent two years at The Oval as a regular starter in the Cofis' defence -- including the final game of last season with Town securing a famous 3-2 win. He now makes the switch to Black and Green for the upcoming season and further bolsters Anthony Williams' options at the back -- in time for tonight's trip to face Connah's Quay.
Aaron told us:
"My first impressions of the club are definitely positive. Playing against Aber over the last few seasons you can tell that the lads are willing to work hard for each other which is an important factor to any team. I’m looking toward to getting involved myself and doing my best for the club
I’ve spoke to Taff a few times and every conversation has been very good and positive and he’s very ambitious - like myself, so I can’t wait to get started. I was at Cefn Druids and Caernarfon with Pix (Assistant Manager Dave Taylor) so I’m looking forward to playing for him again.
As a centre half, I would say I’m good in the air but equally comfortable with the ball on the floor with either foot. I give my 100% in every game and I’ve been in the league for a few years now so I would like to think I could help the team with my experience.
My ambition for this season is to build on last season. I think priority should be securing our position in the league and then pushing for Top 6 and possibly Europe."
Manager Anthony Williams commented:
"Aaron is a very experienced player who's able to play anywhere across the back and has also stepped into midfield on occasions. He's played in the league for years and brings an older head to our young defence. We're delighted to have him in the squad for the season ahead!"
Croeso i Geredigion, Aaron!
