Aberystwyth Town vs Airbus UK Broughton
JD Cymru Premier
Tuesday 27th September (KO 8pm)
Aber Town are back in action tomorrow night against newly promoted Airbus UK Broughton, looking to produce a home performance similar to the last one, when much fancied Connahs Quay Nomads were defeated 2-1 at Aberystwyth University Park Avenue.
As a welcome gesture, all Aberystwyth University Students holding an Aber Card will be admitted for FREE!
The intervening games have not produced the results that the raucous Green Army following would have wanted, but those who travelled to Cardiff Met and Penybont would agree that the players performances merited more than the scorelines would suggest and indeed the players were awarded for their efforts by being cheered off the field in South Wales on Friday night, which should raise confidence within the camp.
Airbus have found it tough on their return to the Cymru Premier and currently sit in 12th place after 7 games. They have of course been without the services of last seasons Cymru North top goalscorer Adam Davies, who spent a year at Park Avenue between 2020 and 2021, and is currently recovering from a serious leg injury.
The Wingmakers picked up their first point of the season on Friday night at home to Newtown and were only denied their first win by an 89th minute free-kick from former Seasider Mathew Jones, which gained the Robins a share of the spoils in a 4-4 draw.
They have since parted company with Manager Steve O’Shaughnessy, with Assistant Manager Mark Allen taking caretaker charge for the next two games alongside Jamie Crowther, who had a brief spell at Park Avenue in 2017.
The two teams have already met once this season, when on a blisteringly hot opening night, the Black and Greens secured victory thanks to Alex Darlington’s 76th minute winner, volleyed home with his first touch. Aber had earlier taken the lead through Joseph Palmer’s own goal before Airbus equalised through George Peers with 19 minutes to go.
Admission prices at Aberystwyth University Park Avenue Stadium tomorrow night are £8 for Adults, £5 for Concessions, Free for AU Students with Aber Cards, £2 for Secondary School age children and free entry for Primary School age children.
