Aberystwyth Town are delighted to announce that Chris Venables has signed a new two year contract with the Club.
The news will come as a big boost in the run up to Aber Town's UEFA Europa League Play Off at home to Gap Connah's Quay on Sunday afternoon.
Chris has become something of a phenomenon over the past eighteen months, and his goalscoring exploits in the Calendar year of 2014 earned worldwide acclaim. He was featured on uefa.com and the FIFA Weekly Magazine, not to mention a host of national television and radio outlets. More importantly to the Club he has made an enormous contribution to the Black and Greens' best season for years, resulting in a Top Four finish.
Chairman Tony Bates said: "I am delighted that Chris has signed a new two year contract with the Club. Venners has obviously played a massive part in the team’s success this season and for the second year in succession will receive the WPL Golden Boot having so far scored 28 goals, ten more than his nearest rival."
Manager Ian Hughes said: "It's fantastic news that Chris has committed to Aberystwyth Town, his winning mentality has become infectious around the squad and he feels, like I do, that we can kick on and get even better. Chris is the last off the training pitch and often stays out after training to practise different aspects of his game. The fact that he is the best player in the Welsh Premier League is no coincidence and his hard work is a great example to any aspiring young players at our club".
