Eye catching victories against Haverfordwest County and Newtown are the main headlines from that run although a point last time out against fellow high flyers Penybont will also please the management. A very familiar face to Town supporters and football fans all over Wales in the Bala Town lineup will be the imperious Chris Venables. 'Venners' enjoyed two stints in Black and Green and during that time, he found the back of the net 78 times and won a trio of golden boot awards.
Despite the upturn in home form, points on the road have been somewhat difficult to come by. The men from Ceredigion have only won one match away from the Cardigan Bay although performances over recent matches against Caernarfon, Cardiff Met and Penybont offer the Black and Green army every cause for optimism. Maes Tegid has been the location for numerous happy memories for Aberystwyth Town. Under the stewardship of Neville Powell, a last minute Declan Walker goal saw Aber come from 2-1 down to win 3-2.
Were Aber content with a home draw? The answer was a resounding no as a high boot on the ubiquitous Harry Arnison in the area was punished with a penalty kick, and Niall Flint stepped up to joyously smash home a second with just five minutes to go. Aber had to survive a series of corners and free kicks during four minutes of injury time, with even keeper Allen coming up twice to try and snatch a draw, but the Black and Greens held out to make it four out of four! The Seasiders’ best home run in almost a decade has brought a really positive vibe to Park Avenue, and Anthony Williams reminded the media in his post match interviews that he was still targeting a Top Six finish.
Town’s next challenge comes when Aber make the trip up to Bala next Friday evening, for a 7. 45pm kick off. Happy Halloween to everyone in Black and Green! GENERO ADRAN PREMIERBARRY TOWN UNITED WOMEN 1 (M. OLDEN 26')ABERYSTWYTH TOWN WOMEN 0VENUE: JENNER PARK27/10/2022 Aberystwyth Town Women fell to another disappointing defeat on the road, losing 1-0 to Barry Town United on Thursday evening. In a rearranged fixture, Mackenzie Olden's first-half goal was enough to make the difference. After good performances against Cardiff City and Swansea City, Aber had hoped for more from this match - but once again they struggled to convert chances.
Into the second half and the industrious Flint sent in a good right wing cross which just evaded Darlington, then Okera Simmonds volleyed wide from the right channel for Flint, and then headed over minutes later as the visitors threatened. Louis Bradford and Sam Litchfield at Centre Back were having superb games repelling and blocking attacks, but Harrison sent a super volley inches wide, with the game hanging in the balance.
Later in the season, Bala was chosen as the neutral Welsh Cup Semi Final location. On a beautiful Sunday lunchtime, a brace from rightback Walker secured passage to a third Welsh Cup final in a decade. Our opponents, Bala, come into the game in similar form to ourselves having taken 10 points from an available 15 in their last five outings.
Aberystwyth Town Football Club - Official WebsiteJD Cymru PremierFriday 4th NovemberBala Town 3 Aberystwyth Town 0Aber Town endured a tough evening at the office yesterday at Maes Tegid as goals fromChris Venables (19 mins), Nathan Peate (33 mins) and an own goal from Jonathan Evans (51 mins) saw high flying Bala Town claim a 3-0 victory and consolidate their place in the Cymru Premier Top Three. Ravaged by injuries and unavailability Anthony Williams’ men battled hard and were applauded off the field by their loyal supporters, but the points stayed North on this occasion. Cheered on by a lively travelling contingent of supporters the Seasiders, with six players unavailable through injury or unavailability, nevertheless started the game in confident fashion and created some early chances. Charley Edge surged up the left wing and sent in a devilish shot which Alex Ramsey was glad to parry for a corner – and from the corner the visitors saw a header cleared off the line. Luke Wall for Bala had a shot blocked, and then a left wing cross fell nicely for Venables to glance home a header at the far post to give the Lakesiders the lead.
""We're absolutely delighted to make it through to the quarter-finals, " added captain Thomas. "It’s been a hard, demanding week for the girls but they put another big shift in that means we progress. "I'm really proud of the girls - this week hasn’t been easy but we’ve stuck together and it was a well-earned, much-needed win and a fun trip home! "The Seasiders are back in action next Sunday, returning home after four away games on the bounce - and it's a crunch match at Park Avenue as Aber welcome bottom club Abergavenny on 6th November, kick-off 2pm.
And to make matters worse, substitute Carys Davies and manager Gavin Allen were both controversially sent off in the last minute. The Seasiders have no time to dwell, though - they are back in action on Sunday, facing Connah's Quay in the second round of the FAW Women's Cup. "The defeat hurts now, " said skipper Kelly Thomas, "but it'll be good to have a bit of respite from the league. The girls have got to be up to take on Connah's Quay because a good cup run will really boost morale. " Aberystwyth Town vs Flint Town UnitedJD Cymru PremierFriday 28th October (KO 8pm) Anthony Williams’ Black and Greens will be looking to continue their recent good run at home tomorrow night as Flint Town United visit Ceredigion. The Seasiders have won three on the bounce at home – a run that stretches back nearly two months. These wins have proved crucial in keeping Aber in touch with the coveted Top Six, with the first phase now exactly at the halfway stage of 11 games Last weekend, Aber pushed Caernarfon Town all the way for a late equaliser, but the hosts held firm to take all three points thanks to a 2-1 victory.
And they did just that, growing into the game as it went on, with Jones knocking in the first goal from a corner just after the hour, and Jenkins adding the second from a free kick deep in second-half added time. The one blot on the afternoon's action was a red card for assistant manager Matty Jones just before half-time. "Congratulations to the girls - they've been fantastic as a squad and sticking together, " said manager Allen. "Overall I thought we were excellent, and dominated a large amount of the game. It's unfortunate we didn't score more goals - it could have been five or six if not for their goalkeeper. "Fair play to Connah's Quay, you can see why they're top of their league - some very good individual players, we wish them all the best.

Aber’s superb away following kept singing for fully five minutes after the game finished and showed faith in and appreciation of the team which Anthony Williams’ men will hope to repay with more positive results going forward. Two home games come next before the World Cup break, with Newtown visiting Park Avenue next Saturday in the JD Welsh Cup Third Round (ko 2pm). Cup Fever is back in town! Bala Town vs Aberystwyth Town JD Cymru PremierFriday 4th November 2022 (19:45) The Black and Greens make the second shortest trip of the season on Friday as they travel to Gwynedd to face Colin Caton’s Bala Town at Maes Tegid in Matchday 14 of the JD Cymru Premier. Anthony Williams’ men make the 43 mile trip full of confidence after notching a fourth consecutive home win last time around with an resilient and hard fought victory over our nearest league rivals Flint Town United in front of 343 at Aberystwyth University Park Avenue.
The irrepressible Lassana Mendes was by far the best player on the field and giving Aber a torrid time down the right flank, but the Black and Greens, wearing yellow on the night, were still alive and Louis Bradford had a defiant overhead kick saved from a free kick. Wall then flicked past Aber’s post, George Newell just missed a Mendes’ corner, but Peate made no mistake minutes later from the same delivery and nodded home the second at the back post via the crossbar. The game quietened down and apart from a Venables shot which went wide, there were otherwise few chances and the half time whistle went with Bala in control at two nil. Into the second half and Peate had a soft header saved by Leigh Jenkins in the Aber goal, then at the other end Iwan Lewis delivered a super ball in which just evaded Steff Davies’ head, but when a right wing cross from Newell was turned into his own net by Evans just six minutes in, a long night was beckoning.
Evans then reminded the crowd of his goalscoring threat, sending an acrobatic scissor kick just wide. Flint were playing some nice football, with the tricky Larnell Cole a threat at number ten, and his volley hit the top netting for the visitors’ first attempt on goal. Jenkins came out well to gather a cross from Beaumont-Broadhead, but then at the other end Jon Owen showed great skill to turn his man and send in a left footed volley, which Allen again had to parry. Danny Harrison saw yellow for an unpleasant challenge on Harry Arnison, then Darlington sent a set piece free kick millimeters wide of the right stantion in injury time, and the half ended goal less.
Then came the breakthrough as Darlington’s ball split the home defence and Captain Thorn galloped through to control with his first touch, and clip home with a cheeky backheel – a big moment in Aber’s season. Bradford and Thorn volleyed subsequent efforts over, but then back came the visitors with Beaumont-Broadhead threatening with a couple of headers – but Jenkins’ handling in goal was secure. Then on 81 minutes a loose ball dropped to sub Hughes in the area, and he volleyed into the bottom corner with his first touch to level things up.
The postcode for Maes Tegid is LL23 7UY. A sizeable contingent from Aber is expected and consider yourselves invited! Come on the Seasiders!
