Aberystwyth Town Football Club are delighted to announce the retention of striker and Club Captain Marc Williams for the forthcoming season, 2020/21.
Since joining the Club from Bangor City in January 2019, Marc has scored sixteen goals in 38 matches in Black and Green. At the mid season split in January 2020 he lead the way in the Club's official Instat Index, topping the ranking for shots on goal, key passes and dribbles per game. As well as a keen eye for goal Marc is an expert at holding the ball up, and his influence in the dressing room was underlined when he was named Club Captain for the 2019/20 season.
Marc is also an influential character off the field and he was awarded the JD Cymru Premier Player of the Month Award for April 2020, after organising a fundraiser to raise vital funds for NHS Wales. He encouraged other JD Cymru Leagues players to help him in achieving his goal and comfortably reached his target of £5,000.
Marc has previously spent periods with Conference sides Wrexham, Chester, Northwich Victoria and Kidderminster Harriers and has been capped for Wales at U17, U19, U21 and semi-professional levels. He also had spells with Llandudno and Cymru Alliance outfit Bangor City. Known for his prolific goal scoring record, the front man made 86 appearances for Wrexham between 2005 and 2011, scoring 17 goals in the process. He scored 14 goals in 60 games for Conference North side Chester City between 2011 and 2014, and more recently netted 25 goals in 76 games for Llandudno in the JD Welsh Premier League, guiding them to a Europa League qualification tie back in 2016/17.
Marc told atfc.org.uk earlier today: “I'm happy to be staying on! The Management Team are getting together a good mix of youth and experience and I'm looking forward to getting Aber up the table and hopefully pushing for the Top Six.”
Everyone at Park Avenue is delighted to have Marc back on board for the forthcoming season.
