coming months and we see this as a long term appointment to get the Club re-organised without any pressure on him in regards to results on the pitch - all we have asked for is a team that wants to play for the badge and 100% committed on the pitch”. Work is now well underway on the formation of a new backroom team that will assist Simon and details will be released when confirmed and there will be an interview with the new boss online over the coming week as he gets stuck into assembling a squad.  >> U13 in comeback to clinch the double Monday 7th May 2018 Aberdare Town’s under 13 squad have added to the clubs honours board again to round off another amazing season for the team. Last year they claimed the league title having gone the whole season unbeaten while this year they followed up the achievement by repeating it in the next age group to win the championship again. Today they had the chance of claiming a league and cup double with the final against Treorchy at Cambrian but found themselves 2-0 down and facing up to defeat.  However the superb squad never know when they are beaten and fought back to force extra time. A nerve wracking extra period followed on a blazing hot afternoon and in the end the trophy was decided by a penalty shoot out which Aberdare edged to claim the league and cup double. Huge congratulations to our opponents Treorchy who were a credit to their club, the league and themselves.  It was a great finals day organised by the Aberdare & Rhondda Junior Football League. Well done boys from everybody at the Club.  >> Club awarded Tier 2 Licence Thursday 3rd May 2018 Aberdare Town Football Club are delighted to confirm that it has achieved the FAW Tier 2 Licence. The new licencing scheme in Welsh Football means that in order to progress through to the top two leagues in the Country a licence is required and is a formal process undertaken by the Welsh FA. Earlier in the season the Club appointed Ian Pearce as the new Club Licencing Officer to oversee the application process: “It has been a great team effort from the whole committee in getting the licence.  We have undertaken a lot of administrative work with the introduction of several policies and plans as well as some building works to bring the ground up to the required standard.  We may not have been in a position to gain promotion this year on the pitch but as a Committee we felt it was an important step in our development to get the licence as we look to make a lot of changes to the Club to take us forward”. The annual licence will be renewed next year and will mean that if success follows on the pitch the Club will be in a position to move into the Welsh League Division One or when introduced the new FAW Championship. The Club will not stop at the Tier 2 Licence through with Pearce adding: “We cannot officially apply for a Tier 1 Licence until we gain promotion but that won’t stop us from starting to put things together in order for us to be able to achieve it when we do get to that stage”.  >> Wayne Powell Thursday 3rd May 2018 Aberdare Town Football Club has been informed by Wayne Powell of his immediate resignation from his role as first team manager. The Committee wish to place on record their thanks to Wayne, Gareth Harbord and Rob Hudson for their efforts in what has been a difficult season. For the remaining two games Simon Jones will take on the role of caretaker manager. The Club are now inviting applications for the position as we embark on a new direction and era for the Club.  Interested applicants should be self motivated, hold (or be prepared to work towards) relevant coaching badges, have a working knowledge of Welsh League football and want to work with the committee to develop the club in line with its ambitions and to understand its limitations. The deadline for applications is Thursday 17th May with interviews likely to take place in the week commencing 21st May. To apply in confidence please email a CV and covering letter to  >> Statement: Reserve Team Monday 23rd April 2018 Aberdare Town Football Club regret to announce that they have withdrawn their Reserve side from the Welsh Football League with immediate effect. It has been a difficult season for the team which has made fielding a side difficult through lack of available players and of late utilised players from the Aberdare Valley Football League side, of which we are grateful to Nick Chappell and his squad for their help. With 6 matches still to be played, and having already encountered a fine and points deduction for non-fulfillment of a fixture, the Club, after being notified by manager Simon Jones of not being able to raise sides for upcoming games, was left with no option. The team picked up their first point of the season last Wednesday with a valiant 2-2 draw against Cambrian & Clydach Vale BGC. We would like to express our thanks to Simon and those players who have worked tirelessly for Aberdare Town Football Club.  >> ‘1892 Club’ Launched Friday 23rd February 2018 Aberdare Town are delighted to announce the launch of their “1892 Club’ to mark the clubs 125th anniversary.
