Danger Man


Mathew Jones – The 22-year old has led his side into the last eight of the competition with his goal contributions having scored four goals in only two appearances. He scored three of which in a hat-trick produced against Cefn Druids in the fifth round where the Seasiders conquered the Ancients with a 4-1 win at home. While the midfielder has had a season to remember in the league as well having contributed a total of ten goals across twenty appearances so far. This has seen him partaking in nearly half of all goals Aberystwyth have registered in the league this season.


Previous Meeting


Our last matchup that involved Aberystwyth was our first win of the season as we edged out a 1-0 victory at Park Avenue.


A professional performance was carried out that night as Alex Darlington turned the ball into his own net in the first-half to set us up comfortably to control the rest of the game and ensure a victory for the Lakesiders.
