Bangor City 4 v 0 Cefn Druids Development North

WP Under 19 Development League
Bangor City 4 v 0 Cefn Druids

  Bangor bounced back to winning ways with the four nil defeat of visitors Cefn Druids.
 
And for what may be the first time at this level one player was fouled for all three penalties and all were then converted by one other player!
  The two chief protagonists were Alex Boss and Sam Jones in that order.
  Boss in particular was too hot to handle for the young Druids defence.
  On twenty five minutes pacey striker Alex Boss charged into the Druids box and was fouled by goalkeeper Adam Jones. Penalty.
  Up stepped the calm figure of Sam Jones to put City one nil ahead.
  And that was about it for the first half as City led one nil at the interval.

Half Time
Bangor City 1 v 0 Cefn Druids
  Five minutes after the restart another penalty for Bangor as Druids defender Harri Lucas Jones fouled Alex Boss. Again the spot kick was converted by Sam Jones to double his tally and put City two nil ahead.
  On the hour mark City sent on Geraint Jones for Deegan Booton. Five minutes later Ben Williams replaced Harri Hughes.
  With 69 minutes played Harri Lucas Jones again brought down the rampaging Boss for a third penalty and once more Sam Jones slotted the kick home to complete his hatrick and put City three nil up.
  City promptly replaced Alex Boss with Jason Banks.
  And in the last minute of the game substitute Jason Banks scored the fourth goal of the afternoon - and the only one from open play - to complete the four nil scoreline.
  So a morale boosting win for the young blues whose record after four game is won two lost two.

Bala Town 3 v 0 Bangor City Development North

WP Under 19 Development League
Bala Town 3 v 0 Bangor City

  Bangor lost their second away game of the season despite creating chances and playing out a goalless first half at Bala.
  
City pressed in the opening exchanges and Ruthin Town goalkeeper Ryan Goldston made two oustanding daves to keep the young blues at bay. The
first a one handed save from Alex Boss' header following Gruff Steads corner kick. The second a low save again from young marksman Boss whose shot was turned away for a corner.
  Ten minutes from half time it was Leon Jones who caught the eye with a push over from Ruthin Town youngster Will Owen's dipping volley.
  Bala attacker Rhys Rowland did pop the ball in the net from a rebound but the linesman's flag signalled an end to celebrations.
  So a blank scoreline and even first half on the Maes Tegid 3g.

Half Time
Bangor City 0 v Bala Town
  Eight minutes after the restart Bala had the lead.
  Leon Jones did well to keep out a clean strike but Charlie Williams reacted first to net from close range.
  With twenty minutes of the second period gone manager Dave Cavanagh rang the changes with Ben Williams, Gruff Owen and Cai Huws coming on for MacFarlane, Booton and Math Roberts.
  Bangor tried to respond through the lively Alex Boss but Goldston again did his job effectively.
  And so it was Bala who doubled their lead when Josh Jones netted with some ten minutes to play and on the stroke of time the young marksman grabbed his second to give the home side an emphatic three nil final scoreline.
  This is very much a new group of youngster in the Bangor shirts and will need time to gel. Nevertheless this Development League is, generally, a good standard for them to develop.

Bangor City 2 v 1 Connahs Quay Development North

WP Under 19 Development League
Bangor City 2 v 1 Connahs Quay

  Bangor beat highly rated opponents two one thanks to a brace from former Wrexham youngster George Harry.
 
When you hear that The Nomads won their opening game 21-0 this is a very impressive win for City.
  The young blues were boosted by the presence of first team squad teenagers Cai Owen in defence and George Harry upront.
 
The visitors opened the scoring as Jacob Barratt netted confidently from a cross from the right.

  George Harry and Sam Jones threatened for City but they had goalkeeper Leon Jones to thank for repelling the young Nomads who looked to extend their lead.
  Either that proved to be the only goal of the first half.

Half Time
Bangor City 0 v 1 Bangor City
  Five minutes after the restart City made a change as Geraint Jones came on for Louis Macfarlane.
  And this change did the trick two minutes later as George Harry levelled the scores after a great run and pass from Sam Jones.
  Bangor pushed for a winner and that duly arrived on 73 minutes.
  Midfielder Gethin Thomas released the spring heeled Alex Boss whose progress into the Nomads box was halted by the goalkeeper. Penalty.
  Up stepped George Harry to double his tally and more importantly put City ahead for the first time with seventeen minutes remaining.
  The visitors upped their game in a bid to salvage at least a point but Bangor goalkeeper Leon Jones and his defence were up to the task and they held out to secure a first win of the season.

Airbus 4 v 3 Bangor City Development North

WP Under 19 Development League
Airbus 4 v 3 Bangor City

  Airbus edged this evenly contested match at The Airfield despite City racing to a two goal lead and threatening to run riot.
 
To add to the drama t
here was a fly past from the Red Arrows on a beautiful summer's afternoon which had some spectators seeking out shade from the blazing sun.
 
City scored twice inside ten minutes with Alex Boss the architect of both. First on seven minutes he set up Math Roberts whose curler arched home from eighteen yards.
  Then three minutes later his low cross from the left was half cleared to Gethin Thomas who made it two nil.
  Next Sam Jones went close before the 'Bus goalkeeper kept City at bay with a doublle save as Sam Jones threatened once more.
  But on seventeen minutes the Airbus No 8 unleashed an unstoppable long range strike which beat Leon Jones all ends up and within a minute the young Planemakers levelled the scores as the No 9 slotted home from the left.
  And then normality - or something similar - took over. Bangor had a late chance through Sam Jones but the home goalkeeper saved and at the interval the scoreline stood at two all.

Half Time
Airbus 2 v 2 Bangor City
  Five minutes after the restart Airbus took the lead for the first time as their No 11 took advantage of some hesitant defending to lash home from ten yards.
  City replaced Matth Roberts with Ben Williams on 53 minutes and pushed Guto Williams from centreback to midfield.
  On the hour mark is was three all as Sam Jones seized on a wayward pass out from Airbus to slot home coolly from the left.
  Next Jason Banks came on for Mark Dunn and then on 67 minutes Gruff Owens came on for Deegan Booton.
  But with seven minutes left Airbus snatched what proved to be the winner as their No 6 beat Leon Jones and City could not find a reply.
  With many of the older players having moved on to adult football this is a new look Bangor side which will doubtless take time to gel.
