Aberystwyth confirms four signings
Four new playes will have this as their new home field.
Marc Lloyd Williams was happy to announce that the club has signed four new players, one in each position on the field. The newly appointed manager of Aberystwyth has only been in the club for a couple of days before he could confirm the first signings to the club.
The first player to be confirmed was the young goalkeeper, Liam Matthews
(19). Two seasons ago he was in the youth squad to Cardiff, before he was released. Garden Village was the club who managed to secure his signature, but after a season without a single game for the club, he decided to leave. Aberystwyth Town didn’t have to pay anything for the goalie, who can be an important player for Williams’ team this season.
The second signing was confirmed only an hour later, and this time it was the left back Luke Llewellyn
(18). The fast back has a history in Swansea’s youth team, before he joined Lido last season. He didn’t stay there for a long time, because in the next transfer window he joined Taffs Well at a free transfer. Aberystwyth has to pay £300 to capture the back, who still hasn’t played a match for a senior team.
The next day Williams could confirm two new signings. The first one was Mamadou Diallo
(21), another player with history in Cardiff. After being in Cardiff for two seasons, the midfielder decided to move to the Welsh Premier League, and Llanelli Town. He played five matches for the senior team here, before he moved down a division, to Taffs Well. He wasn’t here for a long time, and went to Caerau Eli, where he played 7 games, before joining Aberystwyth on a free transfer.
The last player to enter the gates to Park Avenue is also the by far most exciting, striker Paul McManus
(24) (SS). Paul played 19 matches for Chester in Sky Bet League 2, and scored one goal while playing for them between 2006-2008. In 2008 he joined Bangor City on a free transfer, and played 14 matches and scored 2 goals during his only season in the club. Then he joined Airbus UK on another free transfer, in 2009. During his three seasons in this club he played 42 matches and scored 4 goals. After these three seasons he left Airbus, and signed a contract with Rhyl. He played 65 games and scored 26 goals for Rhyl in his three years at the club, before he moved to Aberystwyth, to play for them. He can play CM, OML and ST, three positions Williams has said he wanted to strengthen before the season. If everyone of these signings will be a success is not known, but there is no doubt that all of them has some interesting potential.
