David   has   been   writing   articles   for   the   Clubs   programme   this   season   and   has   been   a   regular   at Aberaman   Park   as   a   spectator   since   the   change   of   direction   of   this   season.      He   has   now agreed   to   add   another   string   to   his   bow   and   become   more   involved   by   taking   on   the   role   of   official   photographer   as   we   look   to   increase   our   media   team   and   what   we   can   offer   to supporters. There are various new developments being discussed in this regard already with a new instragam account and a youtube channel so stay tuned for more details. Welcome on board Dave.

Both players left for Cwmbach and Abercwmboi respectively before Christmas and they have both agreed to rejoin Aberdare as they battle against relegation. We are delighted to welcome them both back. Postponed: Caerau game off Saturday 8th December Our game at home to Caerau (Ely) has been postponed following the continuing wet weather in the Valleys. The   Club   left   it   as   late   as   possible   to   call   the   game   off   but   with   heavy   rain   set   in   for   the   next   few   hours   and   water   already   laying   in   the   penalty   areas   there   was   no   chance   of   the   game going ahead.  A date for the re-arranged game will be set in due course. Postponed: Buds game off Wednesday 5th December The Welsh League Division Two game this evening at Aberaman Park between Aberdare and Aberbargoed Buds has been postponed. With   the   heavy   rain   of   the   last   few   days,   persistent   rain   during   today   with   the   threat   of   a   yellow   weather   warning   the   game   has   been   postponed   due   to   a   waterlogged   pitch. A   date   for the re-arranged game will be announced when confirmed.

Also signing is Scott who is rejoining the Club having had a previous spell with Aberdare and re-joins from Gwawr. We welcome both players to the Club and hope they have an enjoyable spell with Aberdare. Cory to transfer to Abercwmboi Monday 3rd December Cory Thomas has informed the Club that he intends to leave Aberaman Park and sign for Aberdare Valley Football League side FC Abercwmboi.

Jones makes Bluebirds move Saturday 1st December Levi Jones has decided to leave the Club and move to Trethomas Bluebirds following an approach from the Division Three league leaders. The Club would like to thank Levi for his efforts over the last few seasons in what has been difficult circumstances, especially this season, and wish him well for his future.

For   this   season   all   matches   will   be   35   minutes   each   way   and   if   the   game   finishes   level,   extra   time   of   10   minutes   per   half   will   be   played   and   then   if   necessary   a   penalty   shoot   out   will   be used to determine the winners. The first round will be played on Saturday 19th January, round two on Saturday 9th February, semi finals on Saturday 9th March and the final on Sunday 5th May. Steve   Pearce,   one   of   the   coaches   of   the   team,   was   delighted   to   be   given   the   news:   “The   lads   have   been   brilliant   for   the   last   few   years   and   have   done   the   Club   proud.   Its   a   great   honour to   be   chosen   to   represent   the   league   and   we   will   go   out   there   looking   to   do   the   best   we   can   -   it   will   be   a   great   experience   for   our   players   to   test   themselves   against   the   best   sides   in South Wales”. Chairman   of   the   Club   Garry   Williams   was   equally   as   delighted:   “Not   only   have   they   won   the   league   title   for   the   last   two   years   but   also   in   the   way   they   have   played   and   conducted themselves - they have been great ambassadors for Aberdare Town and the whole Club will be behind them in this prestigious competition”.
