Aberystwyth on way back

Wales other Leagues News - Aberystwyth on way back - 17 May 2019 - Women's Football News
Aberystwyth Town are on their way back to the Welsh Premier Women's League next season after storming their way to the Welsh Women's League title.
Despite finishing the 2017-18 League season unbeaten, Aberystwyth failed to secure promotion back to the top tier at the first attempt, the Mid-Wales side missing out by just one point.
Ahead of the new campaign, the club were determined to go one better than the previous season. With a good mixture of youth and experience the club were hopeful of a strong start.
On Sunday 16th September 2018, after winning the two opening fixtures, Aberystwyth were up against promotion rivals Barry Town United, Aber's first home match of the season. In an entertaining game that had pretty much everything including goals, a penalty and a red card it was the visitors that came out victorious. A first defeat since joining the league for the Black and Greens.
It was going to be interesting to see how Aber responded to this defeat. Considering they went the previous season unbeaten and still didn't go up it felt like they couldn't afford to drop any more points.
Jump forward to 9th December 2018. Aber were out of the Welsh Cup after a defeat to top tier side Llandudno but things were going well in the league. Despite not being at their best, the team showed hunger, fight and determination to win all six league games. Their next fixture was away to Barry at Jenner Park. Maybe it was too early to call it a ‘must win' game but it did feel like that. The Ceredigion side dominated the first half and went into the break ahead, but the hosts levelled in the 59th minute. With eight minutes remaining Aber showed that fight and never-say-die attitude as they grabbed a much celebrated winner. Not a bad way to end 2018.
Aber made a very impressive start to the new year with four straight victories including a 7-0 away win at Merthyr and a 6-0 home win against Penybont as well as beating reigning CWFA Cup Champions Llanfair United 2-0 away to go through to the semi finals and eventually the Final due to Felinfach being unable to field a team.
Town's other promotion rivals Caldicot Town were deducted a huge 29 points but their quality was still there and when they faced each other on 3rd March it was going to be a very tough game. Aberystwyth ended as 3-2 winners in what was a nerve wracking second half after leading 3-0 at the break. But three points was the target and that's what they got.
On 31st March, Caldicot knocked a depleted Aber squad out of the League Cup thanks to a late winner for the hosts but just a week later on the same pitch, the Black and Greens took a huge step closer to promotion after a fantastic 2-0 victory. This was followed by a 2-1 win against Splott Albion which included a dramatic 92nd minute winner, giving Aber the chance to seal promotion at Park Avenue against Cascade YC the following week. On 21st April promotion was confirmed! A 4-1 victory against Cascade sealed the title. A historic day for the club.
Aber went on to win all their remaining fixtures including the Central Wales Cup Final (8-0 vs Aber Uni) and the last match of the season which made it 17 consecutive league victories!
In their time in the Welsh Women's League, Aber played 34 games, Won 29, Drew 4, Lost 1, Scored 131 goals, had a total goal difference of +107 and picked up 91 out of a possible 102 points. During that time the club won the 2017-18 SWWGL Alun Evans Cup (Welsh Women's League sides did not compete in the 2018-19 competition), 2018-19 CWFA Cup and 2018-19 Welsh Women's League.
Aberystwyth are managed by Ray Hughes, with Gwynfor Edwards as his assistant. Ffiona Evans is captain whilst Tania Wylde has netted 34 goals in 25 games and Caroline Cooper has also made a huge contribution with 20 assists.
Next up for the club... the Welsh Premier Women's League! It's going to be a tough challenge but one this side thoroughly deserves.
