The   competition   originally   started   as   the   Tesco   Junior   Cup   in   2006/07   for   under   13s   and   with   the   withdrawl   of   Tesco,   the   age group   was   changed   to   under   14s   at   the   start   of   the   2011/12   season.     As   with   the   under   16   junior   cup   the   eight   junior   leagues each   nominate   two   teams   who   are   then   drawn   on   a   straight   knockout   with   teams   from   the   same   league   being   kept   apart   in   the first round of the draw. 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”. Aber complete signing of Dunning Friday 9th November Aberdare Town are pleased to announce the signing of goalkeeper Callum Dunning. Callum   has   been   awaiting   international   clearance   in   order   to   be   able   to   play   for   the   Club   which   finally   came   through   this   week and   prior   to   his   move   back   to   Wales   he   played   in   the   East   Midlands   Counties   League   for   Radford   in   Nottingham   and   previous to   his   spell   with   them   he   played   for   Ilkeston   FC   in   the   Northern   Premier   League.   He   was   brought   up   in   Wales   and   has   now returned after 6 years in Nottingham. We   welcome   Callum   to   the   Club   and   hope   he   has   an   enjoyable   and   successful   time   with   us.      With   the   injury   to   Martyn   Phillips he goes straight into the squad for the game against Dinas Powys. STM match postponed Wednesday 7th November Aberdare Towns home game with STM Sports this evening has been postponed. Following   the   persistent   and   heavy   rain   of   the   last   two   days   the Aberaman   Park   pitch   is   currently   waterlogged   and   with   further rain   forecast   for   the   remainder   of   the   day,   after   consulting   with   STM   Sports,   in   the   interest   of   fairness   to   all   parties   it   was decided that the game be postponed.  A new date for the game will be announced in due course. FineClub sponsor MotM award Thursday 25th October We   are   delighted   to   announce   that   FINE   CLUB   have   agreed   to   sponsor   the   Clubs   man   of   the   match   award   for   the remainder of the season. The   unique   and   innovative   online   app   has   been   designed   by   players   and   is   the   UK’s   first   dedicated   fines   app   for   sports   teams. They   take   the   hassle   out   so   you   can   get   on   with   playing   and   once   the   season   is   over   all   you   have   to   do   is   cash   out   to   your teams bank account. No carrying cash around all season, no accidental losses, no cheaters! The   app   is   in   final   development   and   will   be   launched   on   the   app   store   and   play   store   shortly.      Our   thanks   to   Josh   and   all   at Fine Club for taking on this sponsorship and we are delighted as a Club to be able to support them. J3 Windows are new tracksuit sponsor Friday 5th October Aberdare Town are delighted to welcome J3 Windows as a new sponsor to the Club. We   would   like   to   place   on   record   our   thanks   to   all   at   J3   Windows   whose   sponsorship   has   allowed   new   tracksuits   to   be purchased for the first team squad and their business is now emblazoned across the back of the new tracksuits. Sponsorship   is   a   massive   thing   for   any   football   club   and   with   J3   being   a   new   company   we   are   honoured   that   they   have   chosen us to sponsor and we hope to continue to see them attending games over the rest of the season. Two new signings for Aber Friday 21st September Aberdare   Town   are   pleased   to   announce   they   have   signed   two   new   players   ahead   of   their   game   this   evening   away   to Garden Village. Joining Aberdare   is   forward   Liam   Fawcett   from   Cardiff   Met   along   with   central   defender Aaron   Morten   from   Cardiff   Corries   who has   previously   also   played   for   Windsor   &   Eton.      Both   players   paperwork   has   been   completed   and   will   be   available   for   selection this evening.  We welcome both players to the Club and hope they have a long and enjoyable time at Aberaman Park. Both players are available to sponsor at £50 each.  Please get in touch if you can help:  website@aberdaretownfc.co.uk Ladies & Girls get season underway Monday 10th September The   season   finally   began   on   Sunday   for   our   Junior   and   Senior   female   teams   last   weekend   although   the   Mini’s   don’t begin until the 16th. Changes   have   been   made   to   our   team   entries   this   season   with   teams   aged   u8,   u9,   u11,   u12,   u13,   u15   and   Ladies   already registered and with a big possibility that an u7 team will also be entered. First   to   kick   off   the   season   were   the   new   under   13   side.   Coaches   Libby   and   Owain   have   been   working   the   girls   constantly through   the   close   season   and   are   looking   for   ward      to   entertaining Tranch   Ladies   in   a   Div2   match. This   will   be   a   big   step   up   for the girls to 9 aside utilising larger goals and playing from penalty area to penalty area. Following   this   at   2pm   the   u15’s   played   against   Villa   Dino   Christchurch. Andy’s   girls   who   finished   half   way   in   the   u14’s   div   last year   in   their   first   season,   will   be   looking   to   build   on   last   week   s   fine   4-0   win   in   their   last   pre   season   friendly   and   hoping   to   make an impact at this higher age. The   ladies   have   undergone   a   massive   change   of   personnel   over   the   last   few   months,   both   on   and   off   the   field.   Chris   has added   Richard   and   Ronnie   to   the   coaching   team,      numbers   are   good   and   everyone   is   committed   and   working   hard   with   team spirit is excellent. Severn   Bridge   NPC   were   the   opening   fixture   this   season   as   they   visited Aberaman   Park   on   Sunday.   Severn   Bridge   are   a   new team   this   season,   but   have   already   shown   their   strength   by   beating   Rhydefelin   10   –   1   in   their   first   game.   It   proved   a   tough   test for Aber and the visitors continued their good start with a 7-1 win. Fixture changes for Aber Tuesday 28th August With   the   start   of   FAW   cup   competitions   there   has   been   some   changes   to Aberdare   Town’s   fixture   list   over   the   coming weeks. Originally   Aber’s   next   home   game   was   set   for   Saturday   15th   September   against   STM   Sports   however   as   our   opponents   are involved   in   FAW   Trophy   action   the   game   has   been   postponed   and   will   be   re-arranged   for   a   new   date   in   due   course.      Instead Aberdare will now visit Croesyceiliog on Friday 14th September bringing forward the away trip from January (ko 7.30pm). The   Club   are   also   still   awaiting   their   opponents   for   the   second   round   of   the   Nathaniel   Car   Sales   Cup   after   the   first   round   tie between Aberbargoed   and Treowen   Stars   was   postponed   last   Friday. The   second   round   was   due   to   be   played   on   Saturday   8th September and therefore if the original tie is completed by then it means our trip to Abergavenny Town will also be off. Ladies get Villa Dino in SWFA Cup opener Wednesday 22nd August Aberdare Town Ladies have been handed an away tie in the 1st round of the South Wales FA Cup. Chris   Churchill’s   girls   will   be   making   the   trip   to   face   Villa   Dino   Christchurch   in   the   opening   round   of   this   years   competition   on the   30th   September.      The   other   first   round   ties   are:   Cwmbran   Celtic   vs    Rhydyfelin,   Coed   Duon   vs    Cascade   YC,   Seven   Tunnel NPC vs  Merthyr Ladies and Rhos vs  Caerphilly Castle.  Barry Town, Penybont and Sudbrook all received byes. Season to get underway this weekend Sunday 5th August Aberdare Town get their Welsh League Division 2 season underway on Saturday as they visit Caerau (Ely). Caerau   were   relegated   last   season   from   Division   1   and   will   no   doubt   be   looking   to   put   a   solid   foundation   in   place   aiming   to bounce   straight   back   but,   as   Aberdare   themselves   found   out   when   they   suffered   a   simiar   fate   a   couple   of   years   ago,   it   is   a tough and uncompromising league to get out of. Aberdare   have   had   a   tough   summer   with   all   but   one   of   last   years   squad   departing   and   the   Club   deciding   to   go   in   a   new direction. Chairman   Garry   Williams   is   realistic   in   terms   of   the   aims   for   the   immediate   future:   It   is   tough   going   out   there   for   all   Clubs   at   the moment   and   the   most   important   aim   for   us   is   that Aberdare   Town   have   a   Club   that   can   continue   for   years   to   come.   There   is   a realism   within   the   Committee   that   the   way   we   have   operated   for   many   years   is   no   longer   viable   and   we   have   to   go   in   a different direction - not an easy choice to make but one that we had no option but to pursue".
