After   notching   their   first   point   of   the   season   in   midweek   against   Blaenrhondda,   Aberdare   produced   a   superb   team performance with a comprehensive first league win for 18 months. Visiting   a   Trebanog   side   who   had   scored   9   goals   in   their   last   two   games,   manager   Terry   Fitzpatrick   had   to   replace   6   of   the previous squad through injury and non-availability. In   came   new   signings   Jordan   Hughes   and   Rhys   Thomas   while   2   under   19   players,   Brychan   Davis   (who   has   been   with   the club   since   5   years   of   age)   and   Gabriel   Butts   were   also   on   the   bench.      Nial   Jones   was   back   available   and   took   his   place   in   the heart   of   defence   while   new   goalkeeper   Ioan   Protheroe   was   unavailable   due   to   a   long   standing   commitment   from   prior   to   him signing for the Club. On   a   pleasantly   warm   afternoon   and   on   a   good   pitch,   Will   Eastwood   shot   over   after   5   minutes   while   Trebanog   forced   several corners   which   were   well   dealt   with   before   Yusuf Ali   set   up   Eastwood   on   12   minutes   only   for   the   home   No.1   to   save   well   for   a corner which came to nothing. 28   minutes   saw   a   drive   from   Sanna   Jawo   parried   by   home   keeper   Sam   L'Homme,   Eastwood   followed   up   but   was   taken   down by   L'Homme. A   clear   penalty   but   Eastwood   was   unable   to   continue   being   replaced   by   Noah   Searl.   Captain   Simon   Grmay   took responsibility from the spot in sending the keeper the wrong way to put Aber in the lead.                                                                  After   a   fierce   drive   from   the   hosts   hit   the   crossbar,   a   long   clearance   from   Aber   keeper   Liam   Pryor   saw   a   mix   up   between Trebanog's keeper and defender and substitute Searl knocked it home for a deserved 2-0 half-time lead.

It   was   expected   that   there   would   be   a   lot   pressure   from   the   robust   hosts   as   the   game   progressed,   but   the   visitors   coped   well with any pressure exerted. Indeed,   the   goal   of   the   match   came   on   73   minutes   and   it   put   the   game   beyond   doubt   as   Ali's   excellent   cross   from   the   left saw Jawo through on goal and lobbed over the keeper for 3-0 and Aberdare fans were in dreamland. Trebanog   came   forward   and   Pryor   made   a   fine   save   to   protect   the   three   goal   cushion   but   was   finally   beaten   on   76   minutes for 3-1 as Connor Ray scored a consolation goal. Aber   fans   were   obviously   still   anxious   after   previous   efforts   over   the   last   few   seasons   but   total   commitment   from   the   team saw them going close to extending the lead further after an amazing goalmouth scramble. New   men   Thomas   and   Hughes,   who   came   close   to   scoring,   came   on   to   replace   the   Harrent   Properties   Player   of   the   Match Niall Jones and Aaron Rees ,but, just as the two Under 19's were due to come on, the referee ended the game. The   final   whistle   saw   the   obvious   delight   of   all   involved   from   players,   coaches   and   fans,   a   magnificent   performance   all   round and must be built on when Aber Valley and then Grange Albion visit Aberaman Park for the next two fixtures.
