Buoyed by a good win away at Builth, Aberaeron arrived confident for this evening fixture. Confident but fully aware of Welshpool’s strength in depth and, of course, their striking prowess, namely Will Thomas. Aberaeron started quite well and had good early possession, but Welshpool took control

With Aberaeron smarting from a defeat at Berriew they were keen to perform well. The Builth set up is superb and the message to play by the Aberaeron coaches was clear. Aberaeron started straight from the blocks anld dominated the early play. 

Buoyed by a great win last week, Aberaeron, surprisingly, started slowly with Berriew looking dangerous and getting behind the visitors’ defence with ease. Aberaeron switched some of their players to try and nullify the attacks down the Berriew right and Gareth Lewis switching from left back to left midfield quickly had a positive impact. The danger was nullified and Aberaeron created a handful of chances but seemed to freeze in front of goal. 

Following two narrow defeats Aberaeron were keen to get back to winning ways. They were buoyed by the return of top scorer Matty Davies and inspirational centre -back Elwyn Edwards which augered well for three points. 

On a near perfect pitch and on a sunny April afternoon, Aberaeron were in good spirits and looked forward to locking horns with high flying Llanfair.

Due to suspensions and injury, the Aberaeron squad was severely tested and arrived at Radnor without any substitutes. Aberaeron started brightly and settled in to play some attractive football and creating a few openings Radnor looked dangerous on the break with their excellent striker, Joey Price, making dangerous runs.
