Young Centre Half Ryan Wollacott, one of last season's success stories, looks forward to 2017/8 in Black and Green.
One of last season's success stories was undoubtedly the performances of 22 year old Centre Back Ryan Wollacott, a virtual unknown in Welsh Football when he was signed by Matthew Bishop from Stourport Swifts last July. Ryan's steady performances at the back quickly earned admiration and Wollacott signed an 18 month Contract extension with the Black and Greens back in January.
"I'm delighted to stay on and of course I'm looking forward to next season," Wollacott told atfc.org.uk this week.
"Overall last season was a poor one but for a lot of lads it was their first season in the League. Having the core of the Squad together will help for next season. We are still getting to know each other and having a weekend away together in July will be good for team bonding."
In a season of flux when no further than 31 players donning the Black and Green shirt between August and April, Ryan was a mainstay with 30 WPL appearances in an impressive debut season: Personally I felt I had a good season, obviously I had a few bad games but overall I was happy with my performances."
Looking forward Wollacott feels the Squad will be strong enough to target a Top Six place in the coming season: "Next season I feel Top Six has to be a realistic aim going forward, and it would be a good achievement for us."
Aber Town's Pre Season preparations begin on July 4th, with their first friendly planned for Saturday 15th July at home to Welsh League Division Two Champions Llanelli.
