WPL Clubman of the Year 2016 Phil Baker joined Aberystwyth on loan from The New Saints on St David's Day 2017 and helped keep the Seasiders in the League before returning to TNS for the final game of the 2016/17 season, where he captained the Saints in a 6-4 win over Bala, marking his final appearance for the club, before he was released in May 2017.
Phil was an outstanding and loyal Welsh Premier League defender who signed for Saints from Bangor City in June 2005 and re-signed for the club for a fourth season in 2008/09. He joined the Farrar Road club in 2003 from Tranmere Rovers, but left after a short time to join then Football League outfit Exeter City. He returned to the Welsh Premier with Aberystwyth Town and, after a brief spell with Unibond League Droylsden, rejoined City in September 2004, where he made 28 league appearances in 2004/5. He has become a regular and vital member of the TNS backline playing either at Right Back or in the heart of the defence. Phil was named in the 2006/07 Principality Welsh Premier Team of the Season after a tremendous campaign for the Saints and has now racked up over 100 Welsh Premier League games for the Saints.
