Published Tuesday 22nd December 2020 Aberdare Town are delighted to confirm that they have appointed Ian Ross as their official Club Chaplain. As part of this appointment, the Club and Ian have signed up jointly with the charity ‘Sports Chaplaincy UK in a three way partnership entering into agreement with its national codes of practice. Following an approach to Ian by the Club and after initial discussions took place, he registered officially with ‘Sports Chaplaincy UK’, undertook the required training and then, along with representatives of the Committee met (virtually!) with Steve Jones of the charity to confirm his appointment and sign the codes of practice to become one of the few football clubs in Wales registered. Upon his appointment Ian said: “"I'm absolutely delighted to be of service to you all at Aberdare Town FC, and to being available to provide a listening ear (in total confidence) and pastoral support for all players, club personnel, and families. I come appointed to this role through Sports Chaplaincy UK, a registered UK Charity that specialises in the provision of Sports Chaplaincy. Some may already know me through my ongoing work as Minister of Bryn Sion Baptist Church in Trecynon. I am so looking forward to meeting, further introducing myself and my role, and getting to know you all soon! I'm here to help." With the Club moving towards a new model over the last two years and building more of a community focus by officially bringing all parts together under the one umbrella, speaking for the Club, General Manager Ian Pearce was pleased to welcome Ian to his new role: “We are thrilled that Ian has agreed to join us and, also being a big football fan himself, will no doubt be a great asset to everybody involved with the Club as somebody we can all turn to in the time of need or just to know there is somebody there to talk too - this isn’t about imposing beliefs it is solely something that we as a Club wish to provide to promote and aid the well being of everybody”. A dedicated mailbox will be set-up for anybody to contact Ian confidentially and he will be coming around to see all the teams to introduce himself when we are able.
