James leaves Aberystwyth

jamesleavesaberDEFENDER Sion James has announced he is to leave Aberystwyth Town after 12 seasons at the club.

Jones has been a hugely popular player among the fans and has made almost 330 appearances in the Welsh Premier League.

Sion James tweeted: “After 12 amazing years at Aberystwyth Town I’ve decided to move on. Thank you to players, staff and fans for everything. Emotional, but so proud.”

Penrhyncoch born and bred, Sion is the longest serving player at the club, and has been an integral part of the First Team Squad over a decade.

He began his career at Aberystwyth, but finding his first team chances limited, spent time at Carmarthen Town, Barry Town and Penrhyncoch before returning to Park Avenue in 2004 to cement his place in the First Team.

Happy to play where needed, Sion played in a variety of positions across the back and midfield, but has made most of his starts as a centre back.

Sion won ‘Supporters and Players Player of the Year ‘ in season 2009/10, and is now up to 328 WPL Appearances (all but four for the Black and Greens), and three goals.
