Positive: chased things down up front. Look a bit lively.
Negative: looked lost at right back. Doesn't mind where he plays. Just not in goals, defence or midfield.

We are celebrating 35 years in existence and have had many players playing for us over this period. Some for many, many years and their loyalty is greatly appreciated and I trust they have enjoyed participating as well.
To ensure and support the future of the Club for many years to come we have the intention to create a VICE PRESIDENTS CLUB
A Page will be created on our WEBSITE listing those interested and giving details of their time with the “Town”
A Subscription of a minimum of £25 a year is required to become a Vice President.
If enough people are interested we would look to create an Annual Social activity, as yet undecided and open to suggestions.
If you are interested please contact any committee man or email the club at firstname.lastname@example.org

We are playing our Football in Division Two of the South Wales Senior League next Season. 2011 / 2012 ( I am confident )
Congratulations and thanks to all connected with the Club for what has been a difficult period going back to the end of the 2009 / 2010 season.
On the field we had a change of Manager in Gareth Hurton / Gareth Griffiths in February 2011 replacing Jeremy Morgan who had just over 2 years in the hot seat and credit must go to these for what sometimes is a difficult job.
Thanks to the players who stuck it out and some returning to the Town.
Results continue to confuse me, we can beat the top teams but teams around us seemed to win against us. We won only 2 games at Home and got only 11 points but 5 games Away got us 18 points.
Off the field the Dugouts were completed to comply with the League Regulations this is in addition to us providing barriers around the perimeter 3 years ago.
It however is getting more difficult ( self managing the changing rooms and field ) and more costly to put a side out with all the on going demands of the League.
Thanks must go to Mal , Tom, Mole for the service they have given to this club over many years but we need more bodies to run the Club off the field if we want to progress. Next Season will our 35th year in existence and the 19th in the South Wales Senior League
Our next task is to arrange the Presentation Evening knowing we are still in the Senior League details of which will follow.
Thanks to all involved
Following results in the Welsh League tonight only one team from the South Wales area will be relegated who will replace the champion club of the Senior or Amateur League. This means that only the bottom 2 of the second division and Stanleytown will be playing in the Senior League next season.

Due to the delayed start to the season and the severe weather during December the South Wales Senior League have decided to cancelled this years C W Bruty Cup
A disappointing result against a good Ynyshir Albions left many of us bemused at the situation we find ourselves in.
Making no excuses but not knowing if we were in the Rhondda League or The South Wales Senior League until 6 Days before the season started did not help in Pre season preparations.
It also highlighted the need for more people to assist in the running of the team by assisting Jeremy on Match Days and on training issues as combining playing and managing is a difficult
Any Volunteers / Coaches, Assistant Managers out there??
The spirit amongst the Players as shown on Saturday with the trip to Swansea was great to see.
On the field, players should stick together and repeat some of our performances as against Lisvane, St Athans and Penrhiwfer and the results will come.
Stanleytown Football Club have traditionally been slow starters to a Season and as shown below we have had worse starts to a Season than this.
See below based on 6 Matches
|Season||W||L||D||Pts||Final League Position|
|2003/2004||3rd (55 pts) - Promoted|
|2004/2005||10th (33 pts)|
|2005/2006||15th (15 pts) - Relegated|
|2006/2007||12th (30 pts)|
|2007/2008||13th (27 pts)|
|2008/2009||4th (47 pts)|
|2009/2010||13th (31 pts)|
I am convinced by the right attitude, commitment and support from ALL involved at the Club we can start winning and move up the League table.

The fixtures for 2010/11 Season have now been released. Our season kicks off this Tuesday 31st August Away to Lisvane / Llanishen. Our first home game of the season is Saturday 4th September when we welcome recently relegated St Athan. The first local derby of the season takes place on Saturday 25th September when we welcome Ynyshir Albions. Our season is due to end on the 2nd April with a trip to Brecon Corries. Full fixtures are available here
After a long summer of uncertainty of what league we would be playing in for the 2010 / 11 season a decision was finally made this week that we would continue to play in the South Wales Senior League.
After finishing last season 4th bottom in the league and 5 teams being relegated from the Welsh League it looked as if we would be playing in the Rhondda League this season. However following a successful appeal by Pontyclun against the Welsh league decision only 4 teams were to be relegated into the South Wales Senior & Amateur league which ensured our status in the Senior League.
We are entered in a 6 a side competition in Port Talbot on Saturday 10th July. We are the 72nd team to register for the competition - format is groups of 5, everybody plays each other once, with top 2 progressing to knock out stages.
Minibus to be arranged there and back.
'Spectators' are welcome and Bitter boys also invited to enter a team.
Confirm your availability or not by texting Jez or posting on the guestbook here
