FOLLOWING the recent news that Aber have completed the signings of Luke Borelli and Sam Rodon, Aberystwyth Town are delighted to announce that they will be joined at Park Avenue by two of their Haverfordwest County teammates , in the form of Greg Walters and Ricky Watts , for the forthcoming 16/17 campaign.
Both players played an integral role in Haverfordwest County’s Division One championship winning season and grew their reputations during the Bluebirds’ term in the Welsh Premier League.
At just 21 years old, Walters joins Aber with a glowing reputation. With a number of eye-catching performances under his belt from midfield, the Welsh Under -18 international will be looking forward to plying his trade on Aber’s brand new 3g pitch.
His tenacity, determination and confidence on the ball made him one of Haverfordwest’s stand out stars last term around and the Black and Greens will be hoping he can recreate that form this time around.
Joining Walters will be full back Ricky Watts. Making his debut at age 17 in the Welsh Premier League, Watts was capped for Wales schools under 18’s in 2010. Now aged 24, during the previous seven seasons, Watts has amassed a wealth of experience which will be an invaluable asset to the Aber back line.
Borelli’s determination to succeed , coupled with his lauded finishing skills , sees Aberystwyth’s attacking arsenal significantly boosted following a number of attacking departures. The former Bluebird arrives at Par k Avenue with a sterling reputation. Of course, he will be familiar to the Green Army , having found the net three times against the Seasiders in an impressive campaign last time around. Having begun his career at Afan Lido, the 25 -year – old has played at Welsh Premier League level for both Haverfordwest County and Port Talbot Town.
Rodon’s addition sees the Black and Green’s defensive ranks bolstered. A popular player with both supporters and players alike at Haverfordwest, the 23 -year -old spent seven years with the Swansea City academy whilst representing his country in a school’s tournament and captaining a colleges side. The centre back will be a big presence for Town over the coming season.
Wayne Jones told atfc.org.uk: “Both myself and Mathew have been in discussions since we joined the club about personnel to bring to the club. We wanted a young and hungry side that will be competitive and these two fit that billing.”
