Published Thursday 19 November 2020 Aberdare Town have confirmed that Arran Finlayson has been appointed as the new captain of our men’s team with Dylan Jones being named as vice-captain. Central defender Arran joined the Club in the summer while Dylan is no stranger to the Aberdare fans having been involved during last season. Manager Terry Fitzpatrick was pleased with the decision: “From Arran’s first training session he has impressed us with his communication skills to all the other players and showed natural leadership abilities. He is hard working and well schooled as a player, so he understands what's needed to perform at a high level. Being a local lad he keeps us close to the community we wish to represent, more so with so many non local players joining us this season, so we felt it was important to have one of our own leading the team for the season. It wasn’t just Terry and his backroom team that gave the thumbs up to the appointment with the boss adding: “All the lads have warmly embraced the announcement and have no doubts he will be a crucial appointment to help us achieve this seasons goals”. Meanwhile the new vice-captain responsibility was handed to Dylan which Terry explained: “We are excited that Dylan will develop his leadership skills under Arran. He is a true local lad who leaves everything on the pitch, whether that be in games or in training. He has developed so well in the time since we last worked together and we look forward to continuing that development this season”. Arran will lead out his troops in the teams first friendly this Saturday, which will be played behind closed doors due to COVID regulations. #uppatown
