Haverfordwest County AFC are delighted to confirm that striker Ben Fawcett has agreed a new one-year extension to his current contract with the club.
The striker, who is one of the longest-serving members of the current First Team squad, has been a key part of the senior setup since breaking through in 2018, and was part of the team that secured promotion to the JD Cymru Premier for the 2020-21 season.
So far this season, Ben has made 18 appearances in all competitions, clocking up over 1,000 minutes in the league despite battling with illness and injuries at different periods, and his most recent outing against Bala Town saw him produce arguably his most complete performance of the campaign, as he marked an excellent all-round display with a late goal.
A Wales C international in 2022, Ben has netted 38 times since the start of the 2019-20 season, making him our most potent attacking threat in this period, and he will be looking to add to his three league goals in what was promises to be an exciting Phase Two of the 2023-24 campaign.
GÔL | BEN FAWCETT! ⚽
Hwlffordd ar y blaen ac yn unioni'r sgôr dros y ddau gymal! 💙

Back in July, Ben became one of only four Haverfordwest County players to score in Europe, as his goal in the second leg of our UEFA Europa Conference League second qualifying round tie with B36 Tórshavn drew us level in the tie before we were edged out 3-2 on aggregate. In finding the net, Ben joined Tim Hicks, Lee Jenkins and Martell Taylor-Crossdale in what is an exclusive club.
Upon signing his new contract, Ben said: “I’m coming up to my sixth season with Haverfordwest County, and I’m proud to be signing another contract.
“With Tony in charge, it was a no-brainer to sign again as he has helped me a lot over the course of the last two years.”
Commenting on the news, manager Tony Pennock said: “Ben has shown over a long period of time what a great asset he is to the club.
“His attitude and application to his training is excellent, and he is performing more consistently as he deals with his recent illness.”
