We dnesday 7th August 2019 Four more almost complete squad Aberdare Town are pleased to have completed four more signings ahead of the seasons kick off on Saturday when we start with a trip to Pontyclun. Of   the   four   players   signing   on   are   three   more   returning   to   the   Club   while   there   is   another   young   new   recruit   added   to   the   mix   as   well.      Coming   back   to   the   Club   are   defenders Aaron Moreton   and Andrew   Fenaroli   along   with   striker Adam   Jones.     The   new   addition   is   young   wide   player   Ethan   Derrick   who   is   full   of   potential   and   will   mix   playing   for   the   Club   along   with his studies in England. With   the   big   kick   off   just   days   away   the   Club   continue   to   look   to   assess   all   options   and   hope   to   complete   one   more   signing   before   the   league   starts   as   the   management   team   of Simon Jones and Terry Fitzpatrick look to finalise their squad. Mo nday 5th August 2019 New kit and sponsors for ATFC Aberdare   Town   are   delighted   to   announce   that   following   successful   discussions   they   have   agreed   a   deal   with   Valley   Times   to   feature   on   the   front   of   the playing kit of the mens and ladies teams for season 2019/20. Valley Times,   run   by   Brett   Salway,   is   an   online   guide   to   all   thats   going   on   in   South   Wales   with   entertainment,   places   to   go   and   things   to   see   while   there   are   great   reviews   of   some   of the amazing shows that are on in the area. Speaking   of   the   deal   Brett   said   "I   am   thrilled   to   have   this   chance   to   start   a   partnership   with   the   Club.   I   liked   the   way   they   went   about   things   and   how   its   changing   and   wanted   to   be part   of   that.   I   especially   liked   the   fact   this   also   covers   the   ladies   team   too.      They   are   just   starting   out   on   a   new   journey   and   that   is   very   similar   to   Valley   Times   as   we   have   only   been around for a few months as an online guide but we have plans to grow in the future to take the guide into print as well. I hope this is the start of a long relationship". Aber are also delighted that Harrent Properties will feature on the back of the shirts with Local Medical Services appearing on the sleeve of both kits. The   Club   continues   to   change   the   way   that   it   operates   and   this   deal   helps   with   a   key   part   of   that   with   Ian   Pearce   from   the   Club   commenting   "We   are   really   pleased   to   complete these   three   agreements   and   we   aim   to   help   them   all   as   much   as   possible   with   exposure   through   our   social   media   channels   and   obviously   on   matchdays.   We   hope   that   by   working together   we   can   continue   grow. A   big   change   is   the   fact   that   this   deal   sees   the   same   sponsor   on   the   mens   and   ladies   kit   as   we   aim   to   bring   the   whole   Club   together   and   this   is   just the start" Tu esday 23rd July 2019 Cup draws see Town teams away The FAW have released the draws for the opening rounds of this seasons FAW Cup and FAW Womens Cup with both our teams facing away ties.
