Unfortunately, club captain Ashley Evans has decided to depart the club. The club would like to thank Ashley for his services to the club. Everyone at the football club would like to wish him the best of luck for the future.
Speaking on the departure, Manager Gavin Williams stated” Obviously, I'm absolutely devasted to be losing our club captain, but unfortunately Ash has received an offer that we can’t match, as at this present moment in time we cannot compete financially with the offer that has been received. Ashely has been a pleasure to work with and his never say die attitude will be missed at Merthyr Town Football Club. I would like to reiterate the clubs wishes in wishing Ash all the very best”.
The club have also received other offers for 4 additional players which suggests there's going to be a tough couple of months ahead for the club whether that's replacing those players or trying to retain them at the Football Club.
