Aberystwyth Town host a FREE Family Fun Day at Park Avenue as they bid for a Top Six Place.

In order to attract a huge crowd to inspire the Black and Greens for Saturday's vital home game against Bangor City, Aberystwyth Town FC are hosting another Family Fun Day.

With a Bouncy Castle, Face Painting, FAW Trust Football Coaching Sessions, Penalty Competitions with Club Mascot Sami The Seagull, not to mention Xbox/Playstation Games, Stadium Tours, opportunities to meet the players and other Competitions taking place, Aberystwyth Town hope to showcase the Club as a hub of the community, building closer links with the local community.

This week Club Development Officer Stuart Jones will be promoting Family Fun Day by visiting local primary schools Llwyn yr Eos, Cwmpadarn, St Padarns, Rhydypennau, Comins Coch and Llanfarian, and running sessions at Ysgol Gymraeg and Ysgol Plascrug.

Club Marketing Director Thomas Crockett explains; "Last year's Family Fun Day was a huge success, and we counted 399 people there on the day.

The extra support was very noticeable and helped inspire the team to a 3-0 win over Connah's Quay. We're expecting another huge turn out on Saturday, as the Bangor game is vital in our season."

Manager Ian Hughes says; "The players certainly appreciate extra support and the bigger crowds this season have helped ensure we have one of the best home records in the Welsh Premier League.

It's also important to breed the next generation of Aber Town Supporters and we look forward to welcoming many of them on Saturday
