We   are   delighted   to   announce   that   Ryan   Betteney   has   joined   the   Club   as   the   new   manager   of   our   men’s   team ahead of the 2022/23 campaign. The 33 year old arrives at Aberaman Park after a short stint at FC Porthcawl last season. Prior   to   this,   Ryan   spent   two   seasons   at AFC   Porth   in   the   old   Welsh   League   Division   Two,   retaining   their   Welsh   League status and guiding them to a ninth placed finish, after a couple of difficult seasons for the Club. Before   stepping   up   to   senior   football   he   spent   three   years   at   Ton   Pentre   as   their   youth   team   manager   culminating   in   the youth league title in 2018. Upon   confirming   the   new   Manager,   Secretary   David   Sweet   said:   “We   approached   Ryan   to   take   over   in   the   summer   of 2020   but   the   stars   didn’t   align   for   us   back   then.      When   we   heard   he   might   be   available   again   we   moved   quickly   to   bring him on board.  We are all looking forward to working with Ryan to get the Club back where we all believe it should be”. The   new   manager   was   as   equally   looking   forward   to   the   task   ahead:   “It’s   an   honour   to   become   the   manager   of   a   Club with   the   history   and   stature   of Aberdare Town.     This   is   a   great   opportunity,   but   as   I   am   sure   everyone   will   be   aware,   there is   a   lot   of   work   ahead   of   us.      After   speaking   to   the   Committee   again   this   summer,   it   was   clear   there   is   no   doubt   the ambition of the Club and we can’t wait to get started on our pre-season arrangements”. Ryan   replaces   Paul   Searl   and   Dai   Thomas   who   took   charge   for   the   last   10   league   games   of   the   season   and   have decided   to   step   away   from   senior   coaching   for   personal   reasons.      Chairman   Garry   Williams   said:   “We   would   like   to   thank Paul   and   Dai   for   their   efforts   and   commitment   in   what   was   a   difficult   season   for   us   as   and   ensuring   we   continued   to   field a   full   squad   with   the   utmost   professionalism   in   how   they   conducted   things   and   we   look   forward   to   seeing   both   of   them around Aberaman Park in the season ahead”.
