A former pupil of the Steven Gerrard Academy, Ben impressed last summer to earn himself a move to Wales' top flight, signing with Cefn Druids alongside two others from the Liverpool legend's academy setup. Since joining The Ancients, Ben amassed 17 league appearances, finding the net twice, and two Welsh Cup appearances including against The Seasiders in September where he scored Druids' sole goal as Town came out on top 4-1.
Manager Antonio Corbisiero commented:
"Ben is a young lad that we've watched a number of times since the summer, including against ourselves where he's flashed his abilities. He's a very exciting talent and we're keen to get to work with him to take his game to the next level.
He's a fresh face for the squad who wants to make the most of his opportunities and prove himself at this level, so we're delighted to give him that chance. He'll be available for selection tomorrow so we're excited to see him in action - welcome Ben!"
Ben told us:
"I felt like this was the best decision for me to make as I can see many opportunities for myself in this team. From everyone I’ve spoken to so far, I’ve been warmly welcomed to the club. I feel like it’s a very well run club who focus on improving their players, as well as the good fan base they’ve got.
I’m a very versatile player and definitely someone who likes to have the ball at their feet and dribble well with it. I believe I can link up well with my teammates and look for ways we can keep improving as a team.
At this club, I’d like to add to my goals and assists tally. With the team I want to focus on winning games and moving up the table. I’m really looking forward to getting started here at Aberystwyth and continuing my hard work."
