Aberystwyth Town are delighted to announce that Sion James will also remain at Park Avenue for the forthcoming season.
Hugely popular with the Green Army fan base after eleven years' loyal service to the Club, Sion was almost an ever present last season, making 28 appearances and scoring once, a vital headed winner against Newtown in Aber's first ever Top Six game January.
Penrhyncoch born and bred, Sion is the longest serving player at the club, and has been an integral part of the First Team Squad over a decade. He began his career at Aberystwyth, but finding his first team chances limited, spent time at Carmarthen Town, Barry Town and Penrhyncoch before returning to Park Avenue in 2004 to cement his place in the first team. Happy to play where needed, Sion plays in a variety of positions across the back and midfield, but has made most of his starts as a centre back.
Sion won supporters and players player of the year in season 2009/10, and is now up to 328 WPL Appearances (all but 4 for the Black and Greens), and 3 goals.
We're sure that Town Supporters will join us in welcoming Sion back for another season in Black and Green!
The Club can also confirm that Ryan Batley has been released, and that Mark Jones will also be released when his contract with the Club expires on June 30th. We thank them for their service and wish them all the best in the future.
