Aberdare   Town   women’s   manager   Zoe   Denman-Ellis   has   left   the   Club   following   her   appointment   to   the   Football Association of Wales as a full time employee as Womens League and Club Development Officer. Speaking   of   the   news   Club   Secretary   David   Sweet   said:   “We   are   absolutely   delighted   for   Zoe.   It’s   always   been   a   case   of when   and   not   if   she   would   go   on   to   bigger   and   better   things   in   the   women’s   game,   she   is   a   true   rising   star   and   the   FAW have made a terrific appointment. “Zoe   leaves   with   our   heartfelt   thanks   for   the   time   and   effort   she   put   into   the   club   during   her   time   with   us.   She   had   the most   difficult   of   appointments,   trying   to   build   a   team   from   scratch   during   the   pandemic.   It   wasn’t   easy,   but   she   achieved   it through   her   resilience,   her   work   ethic   and   well   honed   interpersonal   skills,   all   of   which   stand   her   in   good   stead   for   her   new career with the Football Association of Wales. “I hope that she won’t be a stranger to Aberaman Park and this is more au revoir than goodbye” Zoe   said   on   leaving   ATFC:   “I   have   had   to   make   the   decision   to   step   down   as   Women's   manager   and   Head   of   Youth   for this wonderful club. “What   we   started   back   in   January   2019,   was   nothing   short   of   a   miracle,   starting   with   no   team   or   staff   in   the   Senior Women's   side   and   growing   into   a   thriving   squad   of   talented   young   women   and   girls   who   are   more   than   capable   of   doing well in Division One, thanks to the backing and support of the Club. “We   had   a   five   year   plan,   and   it   was   always   going   to   take   an   offer   I   couldn't   refuse   to   take   me   out   of   Aberdare:   and   that came earlier than planned, from the Football Association of Wales itself. “As   the   new   Women's   league   and   club   development   manager,   it   is   now   my   job   to   look   after   the   female   game   across Wales, and support all as best I can, in this new era of Welsh football. “It's   been   a   huge   honour   to   work   for   and   support   Aberdare   Town   in   every   capacity   and   you've   got   yourself   a   fan   for   life. Thank   you   for   giving   me   the   opportunity   to   be   a   part   of   your   Football   Family,   and   getting   my   foot   in   the   door. You'll   always have a place in my heart!” Good luck Zoe from everybody throughout the Club for your future, exciting career. In the meantime Matt Randell has stepped in on a caretaker basis.
