Aberdare   Town   are   delighted   to   announce   the   appointment   of   Zoe   Denman-Ellis   as   their   new   manager   of   the ladies team. Upon   officially   being   unveiled   at   the   Club   before   getting   down   to   work   she   said:   “I'm   incredibly   honoured   to   be   a   part   of Aberdare   Town   Football   Club,   for   the   Ladies   team.   This   is   a   football   club   that   the   fans   and   community   can   be   truly proud   of. The   clubs   Committee   have   a   fantastic   vision   for   the   future   across   all   ages   and   genders,   and   I'm   really   excited to be a part of that”. With   the   recent   departure   of   the   majority   of   the   ladies   squad   Zoe   has   a   blank   canvas   to   work   from   as   she   looks   to   build a   new   team   for   the   2020/21   season:   “I   aim   to   create   a   sense   of   loyalty   and   stability   across   the   ages,   where   girls   know that   they   have   a   team   they   can   continue   to   play   for   throughout   their   time   at   Aberdare   Town.   I   am   a   strong   believer   in developing   players   as   people,   not   just   players,   so   that   they   can   take   away   from   their   time   with   us   and   implement   it   into their   current   lives   in   school,   at   home   or   in   work.   I   hope   that   in   time,   players   will   seek   out   our   club   for   it's   recognition   of good   football   development,   and   use   us   as   a   stepping   stone   into   other   clubs,   leagues   and   it   would   be   great   to eventually produce international footballers”. Zoe,   a   C   Licence   coach   who   who   is   looking   at   completing   her   UEFA   B   licence   is   set   to   get   work   underway   as   she   looks to   put   her   own   stamp   on   the   Clubs   ladies   team   with   it   confirmed   that   they   won’t   take   any   further   part   in   the   South Wales   Womens   and   Girls   League   for   the   remainder   of   this   season.      Club   Secretary   David   Sweet   said:   “We   spoke   to Zoe   about   the   rest   of   this   season   but   there   was   a   consensus   that   to   be   able   to   get   a   full   squad   to   complete   two different   leagues   is   a   step   too   far   at   this   moment   so   we   took   the   decision   to   withdraw   our   ladies   team   for   the   rest   of   the year but will be looking to rejoin again in the summer ready for the 2020/21 campaign with a new look team”. With   several   months   now   free   to   put   her   plans   into   action   Zoe   added:   “I   want   our   squad   to   experience   training   on another   level   than   they   may   be   used   to   in   this   league.   From   the   conversations   I   have   already   had   with   those   at   the Club   I   know   there   is   the   full   support   of   the   Committee   behind   us.      The   next   few   months   I   will   be   looking   forward   to seeing   our   younger   age   groups   and   watching   as   many   games   as   possible   while   we   will   be   looking   at   holding   some open training and walk up sessions ahead of the summer to make sure we have a squad that is raring to go. “It's   an   exciting   time   to   be   a   part   of   Aberdare   Town   Football   Club,   and   I   look   forward   to   seeing   you   in   the   stands cheering us on or on the pitch, playing for the club”. News on Zoe’s back room staff will be announced in due course. Any   players,   both   new   and   old,   who   wish   to   get   involved   in   a   new   era   for   ladies   football   at Aberdare   Town   you can contact Zoe on 07932736860
