Aberdare Town -
Sat 10 August 2019 (2.30pm) | Welsh Football League Division Two
Match Report by Richard Rowlands Despite   the   agonies   of   relegation   our   ambitions   remain   undiminished,   reflected   in   a   close   season   that   witnessed   further   improvements   to   club   facilities   which   even   prior   to   the work, was earmarked for a ground already the envy of most Welsh League clubs. The   summer   break   saw   yet   another   successful   boys   festival   to   be   followed   on   September   1st   by   an   equivalent   girl’s   event,   with   entries   from   South   Wales   and   over   the   border     helping further to raise this community club’s profile. Our   own   ATFC   internet   TV   channel,   a   dedicated   media   room   and   additionally   a   host   of   new   sponsors,   including   new   kit   suppliers   for   both   the   senior   Men’s   and   Senior   Ladies team         attracted   by   the   enthusiasm   and   forward   thinking   evident   at   Golden   Acres,   have   combined   to   contribute   to   what   has   undoubtedly   been   the   most   productive   period   in   the recent history of the club. Success   in   establishing   stronger   roots   with   a   solid   framework   for   future   projects   needs   now   to   be   replicated   by   success   on   the   pitch   which   after   the   frighteningly   clear   evidence   of Saturday’s opening league fixture is going to prove a herculean task seeing Town fall to one of, if not their heaviest ever defeat. Pre season performances had been adequate if not spectacular but no one in the camp expected this. Two   early   strikes   by   Jamie   Williams   set   the   tone   but   a   chance   for   Cory   Thomas   after   strong   work   to   break   free   in   the   box   saw   his   delayed   shot   cleared   and   to   rub   salt   ,set   up   a Pontyclun   breakaway   to   notch   a   third.   It   was   really   all   over   as   a   contest,   the   half   time   whistle   coming   as   a   relief   with   the   home   team   now   five   goals   to   the   good   and   with   the   ploy   of playing a three at the back formation for this tricky away trip having proved an unmitigated disaster. The second half was, I am afraid even worse, as time after time the static defence opened up like the Red Sea with a deluge of goals the inevitable result. The   substantial   away   support   could   only   witness   the   horror   show   in   stony   silence   as   the   embarrassment   of   such   a   capitulation   hit   home.   The   old   adage   of   learning   from   the mistakes has never held more true but deep  down one wonders if there are players within the squad who have found even this level too high . Friday   night   sees   a   7.30   home   fixture   against   Panteg   who   themselves   on   the   day   fell   to   a   heavy   away   defeat   at   West   End.   Hopefully   this   meeting      will   give   the   opportunity   to regain some pride so sadly lacking on Saturday and maybe a new face or two in the starting line up. TEAM:    Mike   Thomas,   Andrew   Fenaroli,   Simon   Morgan,   Aaron   Moreton,   Matt   Owen   (Kieron   Bairstow   ‘52),   Levi   Jones,   Ellis   Whitcombe,   Drew   Langdon,   Cory   Thomas   (Dan Cushion ‘61), Dean Raven, Adam Jones (Brad Lewis ‘61).
