Board gives vote of confidence to Morgan

UNDER-FIRE Aberystwyth Town manager Tomi Morgan has been given the dreaded vote of confidence from the board of directors. Whilst the amount of points they have accrued this season has seen them only one point away from where they were at this stage last year, the amount of goals they have conceded is far worse.

 Managing director Tony Bates says that Morgan doesn’t need to start worrying about his position. He told local newspaper, Cambrian News: “I do not believe in making knee-jerk reactions to any defeat and I am certainly not considering any change of manager at this stage of the season,”

He also stated his desire to secure the long term future of the club and any “knee-jerk” reactions wouldn’t help this “We are only a quarter of the season through and we are looking to the long term future of the club.

“There are a number of young players coming through into the first team.

“We have seen other clubs like Barry, Rhyl, Neath and Llanelli get into serious financial trouble, but we’re trying to compete as a local club and are glad to have a local manager.”

Sean Thornton has been missing from the Aberystwyth side so far this season, and Michael Walsh looks to be out of action up until Christmas, and even without these injuries suspension and other niggling injuries have been accumulated along the way and Bates attributed their poor form to this

“We’ve had an extremely disappointing season and while not making any excuses for the poor results thus far, the first team’s lack of form in some matches has obviously been exacerbated by the number of long term injuries to our small squad”
