  Three points for Bangor at Llandudno although not without some controvesy in particular over the second goal for the visitors. In the melee that followed Llandudno manager Matthew Jones was sent off.
  The visitors though scored twice on their travels and refused to be distracted.
  Bangor forced a couple of early chances with Goicoechea and then Colace being denied by home goalkeeper Shaun Pearson.
  Moments later Agyemang won a corner but then headed the flag kick over the home crossbar from close range. Next Colace fired over but on the quarter hour mark City had the lead.
  A corner fired across by Pietro Cauterucci is headed home by Goicechea with Pearson well beaten for once.
  Five minutes later it was nearly two nil as Chacon broke down the right and crossed for Agyemang but the tall striker headed wide.
  City were now in control and enjoying the majority of possession on the Maesdu plastic surface.
  On the half hour Llandudno had penalty claims waved away by Oswestry official Bartram before former blue Robbie Parry ran on goal but fired over the crossbar.
  On 35 minutes a yellow card for Anthony Marshall for a foul on Agyemang results in a freekick which Serafino fires goalwards but Shaun Pearson pushes away for a corner. From the corner kick which leads to Colace and then Rea going close for City.
  In the closing minutes an injury suffered by defender Marshall sees him leave the field in a sorry state and unlikely to continue after the break.
  So a slender lead for Bangor who dominated proceedings but again failed to convert the chances created.



HALF TIME 0-1
 
  No changes at the interval by Bangor but Llandudno replaced the stricken Marshall with Bryan Hughes.
  Big Agyemang soon got the better of former team mate Lennie Armstrong and charged on goal but the chances fizzled away.
  On the hour mark controvesy and some confusion as veteran striker Lee Thomas was sent off to leave the visitors with then men for the remainder of the game. Reports suggest foul and abusive language towards the referee.
  With fifteen minutes left on the clock more unruly scenes as Bangor double their advantage.
  A goal credited to Placeres was generally seen to have been slapped home by the opportunist striker but not spotted by the match officials. In the mayhem that followed Llandudno manager Matthew Jones was ordered from the touchline for comments and protestations beyond the acceptable.
  In the closing minutes Bangor sent on Wealth DaSilva and Lucas Surber to freshen things up and would have been pleased to keep a clean sheet.
  So a rare but welcome away win for Bangor and a result which opens up a six point lead over Llandudno who are directly below them in the league table.

  On a cold windy day on the Memorial Fields the blues side were made to battle for a share of the spoils in a game decided by penalties scored and spurned.
  The home side kicked off with a strong wind sweeping along the Dee valley at their backs and offering a clear advantage for the first period of play.
  Bangor forced an early corner but the ever dangerous Simone Rea headed wide. Then Tom Williams crossed for Gwydion Ifan to threaten but goalkeeper Laborda pulled off the stop.
  Next Tom Williams fired wide from distance with the wind making control difficult.
  On 23 minutes Corwen were awarded a penalty following a corner. Up stepped former blues striker Joe Williams to send goalkeeper Laborda the wrong way to give the home side the lead.
  Bangor looked to bounced back as Busto crossed but recent signing Wealth DaSilva headed wide.
  In added time at the end of the first half City were awarded a penalty for a foul on Wealth DaSilva but Francesco Serafino sent his spot kick wide and the chance went begging.
  So a tale of two penalties which effectively separated the two sides at the interval.

HALF TIME 1-0
 
  No changes at the interval.
  Big centre forward Agyemang fell in the box and claimed a penalty but referee Wright was unimpressed and promptly booked the lanky striker.
  On 54 minutes Bangor drew level.
  Francesco Serafino saw his shot saved by former Airbus glovesman Keighan Jones but Santiago Chacon was on hand to head home.
  The other former Bangor striker Sam Henry caused some uncomfortable moments for the visitors but Labardo was alert to the danger.
  With some thirteen minutes lef to play debutant DaSilva made ay for Alex Boss.
  As the game went on, with City now enjoying the backing of the strong wind, it was goalkeeper Jones who kept the home side on level terms with saves forom Serafino, Chacon and Boasso before referee Wright blew for time.
  So another draw for Bangor who adapted gamely to the difficult circumstances but once again could not convert many of the chances on offer.

  Scoring goals has been a problem for Bangor all season and once again a positive performance for most of the game was marred by an inability to convert the chances created.
  But a point to take back to Nantporth was better than returning empty handed. 
  As often before the imposing Agyemang was at the centre of the visitors attacking threats.
  The big striker burst into the box in the opening minutes but the Penrhyn defence closed the door quickly, then he was fouled but the resulting freekick came to nothing.
  City forced a series of corners with Chacon seeing a goalbound shot deflected wide but the home side fired a warning shot as they broke upfield for Ifan Burrel to force a great save from goalkeeper Laborda.
  A further corner from James Thomas nearly broke the deadlock unaided but some desperate last ditch defence cleared the danger.
  Following another corner Alex Boss fired on goal from a tight angle but again a Penrhyn defender was on hand to clear off the line.
  On the half our yet another corner kick sent over by Thomas found the head of Lucas Surber but the big defender nodded wide of the upright.
  Eight minutes before the break Thomas lifted the ball over the home defence for Agyemang to chase into the box where he abruptly stopped. Bangor shouted for a penalty but referee Williams was not interested.
  So another goalless opening half for Bangor despite several openings.



HALF TIME 0-0
 
  No changes at the interval.
  Two minutes after the restart an inviting cross from the lively Alex Boss was headed meekly wide by Agyemang when well placed.
  On 55 minutes Penrhyncoch forged an opening but could not hit the target following a dangerous cross.
  Another Bangor corner was headed narrowly wide by Federico Tobler as the roster of wasted chances continued to lengthen.
  On the hour mark James Thomas made way for substitute Eugenio Dalia.  Eight minutes later and another corner which Simone Rea sent back across goal where a home defender crashed his header against his own crossbar.
  Ten minutes from time Alex Boss released Serafino but his snap shot flies over the crossbar. And moments later the flying winger made way for replacement Pascarella.
  In the final minute visitors attacker Lance Jones put his head in the way of a flying boot and needed treatment for a wound whch saw him taken to hospital for stitches. For the short time that remained Carywn Morgan took his place.
  So another promising display from City but just the one point to take back North.

 A better than average crowd of over 250, boosted by a good number from Anglesey, witnessed a four goal thriller at Nantporth which saw the visitors use three different goalkeepers in the course of the ninety minutes.
  And the red card shown in the second period was shown to one of the Llangefni glovesmen.
  On the five minute mark Bangor went close to taking the lead when Simone Rea headed Serafino's corner goalwards but a Cefni defender hacked off his goal line.
  Moments later Colace played in Placeres but Sinclair saved well and the defence cleared the lose ball.
  On 13 minutes Simone Rea headed over and soon after Bangor thought they had the lead through Agyemang but an offside flag cut short the celebrations.
  Debutant Aled Boss was enjoying his return on the right wing but it was Rea who again went close with a header again saved by Sinclair in the Cefni goal.
  Boss ran in on goal as half time drew near but Sinclair was up to the task, before Serafino shot across goal from a tight angle on the right.
  So a blank but eventful first half sees both sides looking to break the deadlock.



HALF TIME 1-0

  One change at the interval as injured goalkeeper Sinclair is replaced by Tyler French.
  Bangor went close early on but Llangefni clear the danger after a goalmouth melee before Alex Boss shot from the edge of the box but failed to connect with any force.
  On 58 minutes Bangor had the lead.
  A cross from the right from Serafino headed on by Simone Rea flies over French and inside the far post.
  Midway through the half a second change for the visitors as Jordan Murphy replaced Marvin Pritchard and was promptly booked for his efforts.
  But with fifteen minutes to go Llangefni cheered their travelling supporters with an equaliser from Alun Roberts whose header got the better of Labardo. And moments latter it took a desperate goalmouth scramble to stop the visitors from taking the lead.
  With twelve minutes left Salvatore Pascarella replaced Alex Boss and within seconds he could celebrate as Emmanuel Agyemang gathered a low cross from the right, turned cleverly and slid the ball beyond French to restore the lead.
  With four minutes left Agyemang seemed set to net his second as he rounded goalkeeper French who felled him outside the box. Red card for the replacement 'keeper and Llangefni now forced to finish the game with ten men and an outfield player in goal.
  From the resulting freekick Francesco Serafino stepped up and arched the ball over the wall and inside the right hand post to clinch a hard fought victory.
  So a third successive home win for City against local rivals Llangefni.

  Bangor fell to defeat at Cae Y Castell to bring their recent unbeaten run to an end.
  With several new faces replacing those departed - including the likes of Baio and Vieira - there was bound to be some disruption in the visitors ranks in the shadow of the Edwardian fortress.
  The seaside pitch,so open to the elements that a Welsh Premier match was once abandoned by the referee after a goalkick flew back over the kicker's crossbar. This was not quite as drastic but nevertheless the wind dominated.
  Flint took the lead on sixteen minutes. New signing Jordan Barrow hurtled a trademark long throw into the Bangor box and as other hesitated Dom McHugh prodded home from close range.
  On twenty minutes a yellow card for Emmanuel Agyemang and moments later another goal for the home side was ruled out by an offside flag.
  With game getting bogged down by the weather and some petty squabbles the rest of the half was played out without major incident and no further goals.
  Having endured the disadvatage of playing into the wind in the first half Bangor could feel optimistic about their chances in the second.
  So a slender deficit for City at the break.



HALF TIME 

  One change at the interval for Bangor as local lad Alex Boss replaced Zicarelli to mark his return debut after rejoining from Aberystwyth.
  And the spring heeled Boss would enjoy the backing of the strong wind in the second period.
  Bangor started the brighter in the second period, created some chances but could not seriously test goalkeeper Danby.
  Ten minutes after the restart a combination of Agyemang and substitute Boss created an opening for Pascarella but he lifted high over the bar.
  On the hour mark a second change for Bangor as Lorenzo Castlado came on for De Maria.
  And two minutes later debutant Placeres forced a good save from the veteran Danby who was happy to push the effort over for a corner. Next Serafino fired for goal but saw his shot fly high and wide.
  On 83 minutes a third and final change for Bangor as Leghissa replaced Pascarella but he was unable to serously alter the position and the home side held out for a win.
  So defeat for the visitors who face the lengthy and difficult trip to Penrhyncoch next weekend..

  Bangor won again, this time against local rivals Porthmadog, on a Friday night at Nantporth.
  And the only goal of the game came early in the first half from the tall Emmanuel Agyemang.
  Port made a positive start with former blues midfielder Ifan Emlyn Jones landing a couple of corners in the home box and causing some uncertainty in the process.
  It took until the 13th minute for Bangor to seriously threaten the visitors goal. Both incidents involved the lanky Agyemang who first fired on target to test Paul Pritchard and then he haw the diminutive glovesman keep out a shot through a crowded box.
  Moments later on the quarter hour mark Bangor had the lead.
  A cross from Massimo De Maria was headed home by the tall figure of Emmanuel Agyemang with Pritchard this time unable to respond. Bangor were close to a second soon after as Salvatore Pacarella fizzed an effort across goal with the home side now on top.
  But Porthmadog replied with another Ifan Emlyn Jones corner this time only half cleared to Iwan Lewis whose crisp strike was bravely blocked. Next goalkeeper Brino did well to deny a goalbound effort from Rhys Williams.
  On the half hour some clever footwork from Francesco Serafino created an opening which the blues No 10 could not convert.
  Seven minutes before the break Massimo Dalia whose positive run culminates in a stinging drive that Pritchard pushes away from the danger zone.
  So a slender lead at the interval for the home side but all to play for ..



HALF TIME 1-0

  One change at the interval for the visitors as Holyhead based JayGibbs replaced the injured Ilan Ap Gareth.
  Bangor gradually took a grip on proceedings and limited Port to few if any clear sights of goal.
  Five minutes after the restart goalscorer Agyemang chased his own interception through on goal but Paul Pritchard raced out to clear.
  City went close again on the hour before a first change for the home side as Sammartino came on for Pascarella. Minutes later Delvechio also chased a through ball but the glovesman was on hand to snuff out the danger.
  With twenty minutes to play midfielder Pavel Vieira slid the ball through for Sammartino but he fires wide. Five minutes later goalkeeper Pritchard sliced his clearance to Delvechio but he could not capitalise from long range. Eight minutes from time Lehissa replaced Delvechio.
  In added time a final change for Bangor as Zoumbare came on for Serafino and eventually Mr Griffiths blew for the end of the game with the one nil win preserved.
  So another home win for the blues whose gradual climb up the table continues.

  Bangor continued their recent resurgence with a single goal win over visitors Llanfair United.
  And to make the Mid Wales side's task more difficult they had their manager sent off in the second half along with manager Rhys Stephens who was ordered from the ugout.
  Bangor started on the front foot with the impressive Sammartino creating chances, the clearest of which saw Nicholas Delvechio head over from a good position.
  City won a corner on the quarter hour which was half cleared to Sammartino but his shot was blocked and scrambled clear.
  Five minutes later the lanky Agyemang headed off target. On the half hour concerted pressure from City saw Serafino and Delvechio both have chances to make the break through.
  With Llanfair at fullstretch referee Mark James cautioned defender Gethin Jones for a poor challenge.
  United goalkeeper Mark Richards needed treatment after colliding with Lucas Surber but was able to continue his defiance.
  The final action of the first half was a freekick for Llanfair which Gabriele Brino punched clear.
   So all square at the interval despite Bangor having largely dominated the opening forty five minutes.



HALF TIME 0-0

  No changes at the interval
  Bangor were first out of the blocks with the opening five minutes spent pressing the visitors back towards their own goal.
  Agyemang the creator with a square ball across the box to Serafino but was denied by a brave block from the United defender. Moments later Sammartino crossed from the left but Delvechio headed wide.
  On 52 minutes a huge setback for Llanfair who had the previously booked Gethin Jones shown the red card by Mark James who also dismissed the manager for contesting the second yellow handball offence.
  Goalkeeper Mark Richards did well to deny Simone Rea but on 63 minutes his resistance was finally broken.
  Midfielder Pavel Vieira saw his initial shot blocked but raced in to convert the second chance and put Bangor ahead against the ten men.
  On 65 minutes a first change for Bangor as James Thomas came on for Pietro Cauterucci. On 73 mintes another good save from Richards from Delvechio whose clean strike seemed bound for the back of the net.
  As time ran oout Bangor sent on the fit againt Azizou Zoumbare and he made a good impression in the thick of the action in the time that remained. Most notably a clever lay off to fellow replacement Thomas who well placed shot was again saved by the outstanding Richards.
  But as often happens if a game is still within the reach the trailing team and a Llanfair freekick bounced off the Bangor upright with goalkeeper Brino beaten.
  However City escaped and held on for the deserved win and extended their unbeaten run to three.

  Bangor remain unbeaten in two matches as they followed up their win at Rhyl with a draw at Colwyn Bay.
  City were able to welcome back frontman Francesco Serafino after he served a suspension.
  And the blues made a positive start with Leghissa in on goal but firing too close goalkeeper Coughlin. Moments later the hosts responded in similar style as Julian Williams shot wide.
  On the quarter hour Toby Jones thought he had scored but Bangor are rescued by De Maria's goalline clearance. On 18 minutes Bangor won their second corner of the evening but threee minutes later it was Colwyn Bay who took the lead as Toby Jones picked out Mitch Bryant whose low shot beat Brino into the back of the Bangor net.
  Buoyed by this goal the home side pressed forward with Tom McCready influential in midifeld. For City Lennie Armstrong and David Thompson were at the heart of the resistance.
  On 35 minutes Bangor drew level as Nicholas Delvechio beat Voughlin with a well placed finish.
  Former blues favourite Sion Edwards went close for Colwyn Bay as the game swung from end to end.
  In the final minute of the half goalscorer Delvechio had a golden opportunity to put City ahead as he latched onto Sammartino's pass but sent his shot straight at the goalkeeper.
  So all square at the interval..


HALF TIME 1-1
  No changes at the interval for either side.
  Colwyn Bay had a chance in the opening minute but Toby Jones chipped the ball directly to Brino.
  Goalscorer Bryant went close but saw his shot crash into the side netting moments after Brino had saved a McCready effort with his feet. On the hour mark the home fans thought they had the lead but celebration were cut short as Julian Williams' effort is ruled out by an offside flag. Next Pietro Cauterucci fired wide from distance as Bangor pressed.
  Colwyn Bay stepped up their game and Lennie Armstrong did well to stop one effort in the midst of the flurry of corners which saw Will Bell head over.
  On 70 minutes a change for both sides as Zoumbare replaced Leghissa and left winger Sion Edwards makes way for Joe Chaplin.
  Tom McCready goes close with a freekick before City make another change as James Thomas replaces Serafino.
  The home side pushed for a winner in the closing ten minutes with Will Bell and Julian Williams closest to the breakthrough but it was not to be.
  So a second positive result in a row for Bangor and some signs of hope as the Christmas period looms.

  Bangor registered a hard fought win at Belle Vue with all three goals scored in the first half.
  Both sides made changes from their prevous starting eleven with City bringing Pavel Vieira and Francesco Leghissa in whilst Rhyl started with Ben Lockley and Dave McIntyre involved.
  The Lilywhites were forced into an early change as set piece king Ross Stephens limped off on seven minutes to be replaced by Aaron Hassall.
  The opening stages were largely bereft of clear openings for either side with both defences dealing competently with any threats.
  The towering Agyemang began to make his presence felt for Bangor and his lay off sent Francesco Leghissa in on left but he fired at goalkeeper Rory Crowther. Next Pietro Cauterucci shot on target but again too close to the 'keeper, likewise Sammartino moments later.
  For Rhyl winger Arek Piskorksi fired wide before on the half hour a yellow card for Agyemang for a poor challenge on his marker Max Peate.
  But on 34 minutes City went ahead as Emmanuel Agyemang as he converts a loose ball which Delvechio initially shot against Cauterucci. Some controvesy though as the linesman appeared to indicate an offside which was over ruled by referee Aled Williams after consulation with the assistant.
  Rhyl responded four minutes later as Sam Molyneux headed home from substitute Hassall's freekick on the left. The replacement nearly put the home side ahead moments later but it was Bangor who scored again.
  Left footer Sammartino twisted and turned on the right before he crossed left footed into the Rhyl box for Simone Rea to head downwards beyond Crowther. A late booking for Pietro Cauterucci did not take the gloss of the good first half display by the visitors.
  So a slender half time lead for the blues at Belle Vue.


HALF TIME 1-2
  No changes at the interval for either side.
  Minutes into the second period Gabriele Brino did well to keep out a goalbound effort from former Airbus and Leicester midfielder Aaron Hassall as Rhyl set the early pace in terms of territory and possesson.
  On the hour Arek Piskorski shot wide and minutes later blues defender David Thompson was shown the yellow card for a poor challenge. Ten minutes later Rhyl winger James Murphy was also cautioned by the referee.
  With little happening the next action of note was a first change for Bangor as the veteran James "Smiler" Thomas came on for Delvechio and five minutes later a debut for Lorenzo Castalda as he replaced Francesco Leghissa.
  A cross into the Bangor box is comfortably held by Brino as time ran out and City still leading by that solitary goal.
  With three minutes to go a third and final change for the visitors as Lucas Surber trotted on for Emmanuel Agyemang. Follwing a clash on their right Rhyl lost Piskorski to injury with Callum Roberts his replacement in the final moments. The young sub forced a fine save from Brino as The Lilywhites created a rare opening but could not find the equaliser.
  And that was about it was time blew on a fine away win for Bangor.
  A first win and three welcome points for manager Pasculi after a string of poor results.

  Bangor scored a late goal to salvage a point after falling behind in the first half.
  Ill discipline has been a thorn in the side of the City side since the season began and despite the change of manager shows no sign of improving.
  Gresford posed the first real threat as Aaron Edwards slid the ball through to Jake Eyre who fires into the side netting.
  Big Emmanuel Agyemang led the line and led City into the Gresford box but the visitors defence snuffed out the danger.
  On 37 minutes young defender Lennie Armstrong went close but could not find the target with his header.
  The telling moments were packed into the closing five minutes.
  First on 41 minutes a penalty was awarded to the visitors which Jake Eyre duly converted. Then on 44 minutes a straight red card was shown to Eugenio Dalia to make a bad situation worse.
   So a clear advantage to the visitors both in terms of goals scored and men left on the pitch.

HALF TIME 0-1

  No changes at the interval
  But five minutes after the restart Pavel Vieira - who was himself red carded in the Welsh Cup against Prestatyn the week before - trotted on for Salvator Pascarella.
  He was quickly into the action with a fine ball to release Massimo De Maria but his cross came to nothing. Next Gresford's Alex Buxton was booked for a challenge on Delvechio, in much the style his father Steve did to such popular effect in a blue shirt years earlier.
  On the our mark Francesco Serafino created a couple of half chances but to no avail. Then yellow cards for blues goalkeeper Brino and a Gresford forward for a brief altercation.
  But a minute later Brino had to be on his toes to deny the visitors a second goal with a fine save. City responded by replacing Agyemang with Aldair Neto and moments later the visitors sent on Harvey Steel for Buxton.
  On 72 minutes Aldair Neto justified his introduction but after racing into the box fired wide but four mnutes later goalkeeper Brino had to be at his best to prevent Jake Eyre from netting for the second time in the match.
  With seven minutes to go and Bangor pusing for an equaliser Sammartino shot for goal but saw his effort drift wide and Gresford sent on Joe Davies for Aaron Edwards.
  Bangor were harshly dealt with by the match referee as he yellow carded Pietro Cauterucci for simulation when he appeared to be fouled in the box by a Gresford defender. The pressure continues but Nicholas Delvechio sends his clean strike wide of the Gresford goal.
  And it was no surprise that City finally drew level on the stroke of time. A cross into the visitors box his headed on by Simone Rea for Pietro Cauterucci to score from close range.
  In the moments that followed Nathan Williams was shown the yellow card but it was Gabriele Brino to the rescue seconds later to deny Gresford a late winner before the referee blew for time.
  So a hard fought point for Bangor and one which broke the seqeunce of defeats.

  Bangor crashed out of the Welsh Cup against league rivals Prestatyn in a fiesty encounter which saw midfielders Yalany Baio and Pavel Vieira sent off either side of half time.
  And with a run of poor results since the arrival of new manager Pasculli things could not be much bleaker for the Argentine who has to wait virtually eight weeks before the transfer window opens to allow him to reshape his side.
  City went close on ten minutes when Aldair Neto just failed to get an important touch in front of goal but within a minute the visitors made them pay.
  Rob Hughes ran through the blues defence to set up Jack Kenny who finished calmly from ten yards out.
  On 23 minutes Bangor came close to levelling the scores as Francesco Serafino shot on target but John Rushton pulled off a great save to deny him.
  Midfielder Rob Hughes was at the centre of most of the visitors attacking theats and his freekick went close and minutes later another just evaded the head of the inrushing Kai Edwards.
  But the biggest incident of the first half came three minutes before the interval.
  Earliur Referee Jones did not take kindly to comments passed by Yalany Baio who then committed a reckless challnge and was shown a second yellow and subsequent red card to leave Bangor a goal behind and a man down.
   So a montain to climb for the ten men as the half time whistle blew.

HALF TIME 0-1

  One change at the interval as Nicholas Delvechio replaced Pietro Cauterucci.
  With a mountain to climb Bangor needed to get on the front foot but after ten minutes they fell further behind.
  A ball into the box was controlled by Jack Higgins who chipped goalkeeper Brino for a two nil lead.
  And two minutes later a first change for the visitors as veteran defender Dave Hayes replaced Michael Parker. City followed suit as Emanuel Agyemang came on for Eugenio Dalia.
  On 62 minutes Dan Roberts came on for James Jones.
  But on 78 minutes any faint hopes City had to cling to were extinguished by a yellow and second red card dismissal for midfielder Pavel Vieira which left the blues with nine men for the remaining fifteen minutes.
  And on 80 minutes it was three nil as Alex Jones headed home from substitute Roberts cross.
  Bangor were forced to defend bravely for the remainder with David Thompson and goalkeeper Brino defiant as the visitors pushed the nine men back.
  Ill discipline has been a theme this season with Bangor, one which has scarcely helped in league or cup.
  So another home defeat and in reality one which ends the season given the lowly league position.

  Bangor slid to a second successive home defeat in week, this time against Mid Wales visitors Guilsfield.
  And this after creating but not taking chances on a wet Nantporth surface.
  Guilsfield forced an early freekick which Yalany Baio blocked and City cleared before Emmanuel Agyemang threatened but without troubling Gills goalkeeper Mike Jones.
  Pavel Vieira was pulling the early strings for City and his through ball released Francesco Serafino but again the visitors defence snuffed out the danger.
  But on 19 minutes Guilsfield had the lead.
  A cross from Jake Cook wasslotted home by Adam Jenkins.
  The closest City came to a meaningful reply was a shot from Pavel Vieira which flashed wide following a cross from Massimo Sammartino.
   So all aslender lead for the visitors as the sides left the field for the half time break.

HALF TIME 0-1

  No changes at the interval
  After several minutes of little to report Bangor could have drawn level but Emmanuel Agyemang took too long to tee up his shot in the Guilsfield penalty area and the visitors defence cleared the danger.
  Bangor made a couple of changes just before the half hour as both Salvator Pascarella and Azizou Zoumbare came on for Lucas Surber and Emmanuel Agyemang respectively.
  But on 63 minutes the visitors doubled their lead at the expense of young goalkeeper Atkinson who spilt the ball under pressure to the feet of Gills defender Sam Litchfield who tapped home into the empty net.
  Bangor responded strongly to the double goal deficit and created chances which might readily have brought them level.
  First Azizou Zoumbare forced a great close range save from goalkeeper Mike jones and moments later the former Gresford glovesman repated the feat with a good stop from Simone Rea. As time ran out another decent chance went begging as Aldair Neto crossed but midfielder Pavel Vieira headed wide.
  In the final minute captain Vieira was forced off due to injury but bravely retuned as the blues faced playing out the final minutes with ten men having used all three replacements.
  But he could not help change the final outcome as visitors Guilsfield celebrated a win at Nantporth
  So more home woes for manager Pasculli who now faces the Welsh Cup visit of high flying Prestatyn next time out.

  Bangor slid to a late defeat against visitors Colwyn Bay in the first home appearance of Argentine manager Pedro Pasculli.
  And they did so before a bumper crowd of 451 boosted by free entry after the initial fixture was abandoned due to floodlight failure.
  After an early scare from a Colwyn Bay freekick Bangor forged a couple of openings involving Emmaneul Agyemang and winger Aldair Neto without unduly troubling former blues goalkeeper Coughlin.
  Again the visitors went close before the lanky Agyemang headed over from a Sammartino cross.
  But on 25 minutes the visitors had the lead as former Holyhead striker Julian Williams tapped home after an initial shot hit the post.
  However City drew level on 39 minutes. Andy Coughlin saved from winger Aldair Neto but Yalany Baio was on hand to score from the rebound.
   So all square at the interval at one apiece.



HALF TIME 1-1

  No changes at the interval
  Two minutes after the restart Bangor went ahead for the first time as Simone Rea headed home from a freekick conceded by Bay defender Alex Downes who was shown the yellow card by referee Smallman.
  Moments later City were grateful to Massimo De Maria for a goal line clearance in a skirmish which saw blues goalkeeper Gabriele Brino shown the yellow card.
  Immediately Bangor made a change as Azizou Zoumbare replaced Emmanuel Agyemang in the forward line. Just before the hour mark a second change as Nicolas Delcecchio came on for Pietro Cauerucci.
  Colwyn Bay were pressing hard and it took some strong defending by Simone Rea and Sammartino to clear the danger.
  With twenty minutes to go a change for the visitors as Joe Chaplin replaced goalscorer Williams and minutes later Salvator Pascarella replaced Aldair Neto in a third a final change for the home side.
  Bangor thought they had done enough to earn at least a draw but were hit by a late double salvo.
  First former Chester and Morecambe midfielder Tom McCready bent a freekick from just outside the box inside the right hand upright of Brino's goal to level the scores on 86 minutes.
  Then with a minute of added time played substitute Joe Chaplin scored what proved to be the winner with a header from a freekick.
  Incredibly there were nine minutes of added time to be played but the visitors ran out winners on their first league visit to Bangor in living memory after their decision to abandon the English system during the summer.
  Not the home bow manager Pasculli would have wanted but he can only look forward to the next game at

  Bangor overcame a resilient Nefyn side on a difficult heavy pitch to book their place in the second round of the FAW Welsh Cup.
  A crowd of more than three hundred filled the picturesque Caer Delyn ground with most clearly hoping for a famous win for the Welsh Aliance side. There was media interest in the form of Sgorio and curious glances aimed at World Cup winning City manager Pascal
  City started on the front foot and won a couple of corners but could not make the breakthrough.
  Twelve minutes into the match and Bangor were inches away from taking the lead as Francesco Serafino hit the post when well placed. Three minutes later Aldair Neto struck the crossbar with a freekick which again had goalkeeper Aikman beaten. Next captain Pavel Vieira headed over the bar from a Bangor corner.
  With the temperature on and off the pitch rising blues captain Pavel Vieira was inevitably in the thick of the action and the referee's book.
  As the half went on the home side got more into the game and Jack Atkinson was forced into action.
  Nevertheless the half time score remained blank with the home fans doubtless feeling an upset could still be on the cards.

HALF TIME 0-0
  No changes at the interval for either side.
  The home side main the ealry running with Jack Atkinson forced to pull of a tremendous save to keep the scores level.
  Moments later Pietro Cauterucci was denied by goalkeeper Aikman and from the resulting corner City thought they had the breakthrough but Pavel Vieira was ruled to have handled the ball. On fifty minutes a first change for Bangor as Pascarella replaces Leghissa
  Before the hour mark Vieira, Cauterucci and Neto all have chances but none are converted as Nefyn defend bravely.
  Next up Sammartino and substitute Pascarella go close but still the score remains blank. With twenty minutes left a second change as Aldair Neto makes way for Zoumbare.
  And a minute later the changes worked. A low corner from the right pulled back by Serafineo to Salvator Pascarella who tuened the ball home with a first time effort.
  Nefyn reacted to the set back with a good deal of pressure on the visitors goal but could not find the break through.
  Their defiance was only undone on 90 minutes when Salvator Pascarella fired home left footed from the edge of the box to make it two nil and secure the victory.
  So a stern test for the Bangor side who had to wait until the final moments to clinch their place in the draw.

  Bangor let in a late goal at Ruthin to come away with just one point instead of the three which seemed likely for much of the second half.
  Both sides showed positive intent from the kick off. For Bangor the first clear chance came as Emmanuel Agyemang headed goalwards from Francesco Serafino's cross but home goalkeeper Goldston saved comfortably.
  On eleven minutes Ruthin were forced into an early change as Alex Webster could not shake off an early knock as was replaced by the veteran Craig Wilkinson.
  City continued to press with Serafino and Agyemang prominent but Goldston remained relatively untroubled in the Ruthin goal.
  Winger Aldair Neto went close with a stinging drive as the ball was half cleared from a corner but he just failed to hit the target.
  Up the other end Ruthin shoot on goal and see the ball crash against the crossbar to safety.
  Five minutes before the interval a yellow card for defender Sammartino as he pulled the Ruthin player back as a counter attack threatened.
  So a blank first half with both sides forging chances but failing to make the breakthrough.


HALF TIME 0-0
  No changes at the interval for either side.
  From the offset of the second half City pressed wth Aldair Neto to the fore, first shooting cleanly on goal and then creating chances for his strike partners.
  On 56 minutes the Bangor breakthrough arrived. A corner won by a combination of De Maria and Leghissa is headed home by centreback Simone Rea to put the visitors one nil ahead.  On the our thourgh is was Brino in the Bangor goal who did well to keep the home side out.
  On the hour mark a first change for City as Pietro Cuterucci came on for Leghissa.
  Three minutes later Serafino's cross just evaded Agyemang before the Number 10 shot on target but saw his effort saved by Goldston. On 69 minutes a first Bangor appearance for James Thomas as he comes on for Agyemang.
  For Bangor defender Simone Rea and David Thompson caught they eye with their defensive work as Ruthin looked for an equaliser.
  Ruthin went close a couple of times before on 81 minutes another change for them as Tom Sharples replaced Ilan Hughes. Moments later a yellow card for Craig Wilkinson for pulling the shirt of Pvel Vieira as he looked to lead a Bangor break.
  But five minutes from time the home side drew level as Gwion Owen rounded off a speedy counterattack to beat Brino with a clean strike.
  And that was how it finished as City paid for some wasteful finishing to leave the Memorial Ground with a point rather than three.

  Bangor went out of the Nathaniel MG Cup at Bala 7-6 on pens after drawing one all against their Welsh Premier opponents.
  And this under the watchful gaze of new manager Pedro Pasculli.
  The main change made by the new manager was in goal where former Wrexham youngster Jack Atkinson made his City debut.
  And as expected against the Mase Tegid side the young glovesman was soon into the action to deny Lasana Mendes on five minutes, with former Bala dedender David Thompson in the thick of the action at both ends of the pitch.
  On 13 minutes a yellow card for Piettro Cauterucci and a minute later the tricky Aldair Neto wriggles his way free of the watching defence to shoot on target but Ashley Morris saves comfortably. On twenty minutes former Bangor winger Louis Robles fired wide from a freekick.
  Next Lee Molyneux fired wide but on 29 minutes the home side have the lead as Louis Robles latched onto Lee Molyneux's deflected effort and beats the debutant Atkinson. The linesman did appear to flag for offside but was over ruled by the referee.
  Bangor looked to respond through midfielder Yalany Baio has he fired at goal from Aldair Neto's pass but could not keep his effort down.
  City then won a couple of corners but any defence drilled by Colin Caton is typically resillient to set piece threats.
  So a single goal between the two sides at the break with new manager Pacsulli doubtless pleased by the effort on show.


HALF TIME 0-0
  No changes at the interval for either side.
  But inside five minutes the Lakesiders thought they had doubled their lead through Lasana Mendes but the linesman ruled that an offside attacker was blocked the view of goalkeeper Atkinson and the "goal" was disallowed.
  Bala respoded with a double substitution as Nathan Burke and Chris Venables came on for Steven Leslie and Louis Robles respectively.
  On the hour Bangor drew level. A cracking striker from Francesco Serafino from the edge of the box beat the experienced Morris all ends up off Cauterucci's assist.
  Five minytes later goalscorer Serafino had a half chance on the edge of the box btu sliced his effort well wide, and moment later on 72 minutes does much the same again but from closer to goal. In between the two efforts goalkeeper Atkinson did wel lto deny Nathan Burke.
  Three minutes from time a freekick for Bangor is crossed deep but Simone Rea headed over the crossbar.
  And that was about it as the referee blew for time and sent the game into a penalty shoot out.
  PENALTY SHOOT OUT
  Bangor took the first kick through Sammartino who scored, Venables levelled for Bala. (1-1)
  Next up Serafino put City in front before substitutee Burke equalised. (2-2)
  Third up for Bangor defender Thompson sees his effort saved but Jack Atkinson saved from Henry Jones. (2-2)
  Fourth taker Baio nets for Bangor as does Molyneux for Bala (3-3)
  Fifth effort scored by midfielder Vieira and Horwood. (4-4)
  Sudden death now as Neto nets before defender Spittle does likewise. (5-5)
  Substittue Leghissa scores for Bangor and Mendes equalises for Bala (6-6)
  Then agony for Cauterucci as Morris saves and Burns converts to send Bala through seven six on pens.
  Next league action for Bangor at Ruthin on Saturday.

FINAL SCORE 1-1 (Bala win 7-6 on pens)

  Bangor bounced back to wnning ways and celebrated the appointment of Argentine manager Pedro Pasculli.
  And they did so with Deiniolen based David Cashman in temporary charge to allow the watching new boss time to take up the reins.
  As Bangor were forced into several changes due to suspensions and injury it was a difficult task taking on the league's in form second placed side at Nantporth.
  With Yalany Baio and the outstanding Pietro Cauterucci busy in the midfield Bangor won a good share of possession but failed to take the chances created with Emmanuel Agyemang wide when well placed.
  For the visitors Joe Vaughan and Sam Thomas were also never far from the heat of the battle. It was Thomas who fired an early warning with a shot from twenty five yards that Garbiele Brino saved at the foot of his post. Bangor responded as Neto and Baio linked up to provide Sammartino a shooting chance from outside the box but he fired over.
  On the half hour Neto went close for Bangor but the visitors took the lead as Tom Gale fired home from Iwan Matthews square pass along the edge of the box. Brino at full stretch could not reach the low drive as it arrowed into the corner.
  With Neto again catching the eye it was no surprise Bangor levelled the scores in added time. Centre forward Emmanuel Agyemang laid the ball off to Aldair Neto and his deflected effort span up and over Jimmy Hayns  into the top corner.
  So all square at the interval at one apiece.

HALF TIME 1-1

  One change at the interval as Gus Harris stepped on in place of injured Llanrhaeadr captain Joe Vaughan.
  Bangor pressed from the off with young defender Lennie Armstrong going close with a glancing header.
  Four minutes into the second period Bangor took the lead. A corner from Francesco Serafino on the right is flicked on by Rea and prodded home byMassimo Sammartino at point blank range.
  Moments later it might have been three as a cross from Serafineo is headed narrowly wide by Emmanuel Agyemang.
  Next Agyemang finds himself in on goal but fails to find the back of the net after managing to get past goalkeepr Hayns.
  On 70 minutes a first change for Bangor as Salvatore Pascarella comes on for Emanuele Zaminga who suffered a head injury in the first half. Llanrhaeadr sent on Dan Hindley for goalscorer Gale and on 74 minutes he levelled the scores as Dan Hindley took advantage of some slack defending to beat Brino following Iwan Matthews cross from the right..
  To compound the misery defender Lennie Armstrong was shown a red card to see City reduced to ten men for the final quarter hour. His arm certainly seemed to catch Iwan Matthews across the face but the visiting striker made light of the incident whilst Referee Bartramperhaps over reacted.
  Five minutes from time Franscesco Leghissa came on for blues goalscorer Aldair and as time ran out more drama unfolded.
  A goalbound shot was blocked by Sam Thomas who was sent off for deliberate handball.
  Penalty and up stepped Francesco Serafino to just get the better of Jimmy Hayns who dived the right way and got his hand to the ball. Agyemang and Leghissa might have increased the lead but neither could get the vital contact.
  So a dramatic late victory for Bangor, harsh on the visitors no doubt, but three welcome points for the home side.
  Next up for Bangor the Nathaniel Cup trip to Bala on Tuesday night

  Three days after knocking full timers The New Saints out of the Nathaniel MG Cup Bangor crashed to a heavy defeat against coast rivals Prestatyn at Bastion Gardens, and finished the game with eight men.
  And this after a goalless first half.
  Young Bangor defender Lennie Armstrong was the first name into the referee's book for a tenth minute challenge which attracted a yellow card.
  On the quarter hour the first clear chance of the evening for Prestatyn as Rob Hughes released Jordan Davies but he could not control the ball and Bangor cleared.
  Mid way through the half Gabriele Brino did well to parry a Rob Hughes freekick and ten minutes later the left footer sent another set piece high over the crossbar. In  between Bangor defender Lucas Surber was shown the yellow card.
  Prestatyn had the better of the first half and another Rob Hughes effort struck the woodwork before Zebb Edwards was also cautoned by the referee.
  So a all square at the interval..


HALF TIME 0-0
  No changes at the interval for either side.
  But if the home side had been wasteful before the break they were soon into goalscoring action in the second.
  After early chances from Jack Kenny and Mike Parker had been spurned Alex Jones netted from close range on 53 minutes to give the hosts the lead.
  On 61 minutes Rob Hughes finally got a freekick right and duly beat goalkeeper Brino to double the advantage, two nil.
  Two minutes later Wrexham based striker Jordan Davies made it three nil as the floodgates began to open.
  On 65 minutes Bangor midfielder Pavel Vieira was shown two yellow cards in quick succession with the second being closely followed by a red. Down to ten men and three nil down Bangor now had to fear the worst against rampant Prestatyn.
  On 67 defender Kai Edwards get in on the action to make it four nil and promptly sent on Jack Higgins for Alex Jones. Trouble for Bangor now with all three substitutes, Gozzerini, Crescenzo and Leghissa on the pitch Lucas Surber was also sent off by referee Gray.
  Later David Thompson was red carded to leave the visitors with just eight men for the closing stages.
  The scoreline got worst for Bangor on 83 minutes with a penalty opportunity seized by Rob Hughes to make it five nil.
  Referee Gray was harsh on the Bangor transgressors but typically lenient on home offenders Rob Hughes and Michael Parker for violent conduct but the official was not authorised by his dugout controller to make such decisions.
  Goal number six duly arrived through substitute Ian Griffiths who headed home against the beleagured blues defence with three minutes left to play.
  And on ninety minutes Ian Griffiths netted his second after he picked up an inviting pass from Zebb Edwards to slide the ball past goalkeeper Brino who was undoubtedly pleased to hear the final whistle moments later.
  Next league action for Bangor

  Bangor recorded a memorable win over visitors The New Saints with a penalty shoot out taking them through against the English visitors.
  The blues got off on the front foot with Emmanuel Agyemang sending Aldair Neto through on goal but he sent his shot too close to goalkeeper Paul Harrison.
  Saints left back Chris Marriott then gave goalkeeper Gabriele Brino a scare with a flighted cross which deceived everyone but bounced to safety off the crossbar.
  Just after the quarter hour mark a pacey run from Aldair Neto ended with an inviting cross for Emmanuel Agyemang but he headed wide of the target. Blues midfielder Pietro Cauteruuci got his foot to an overhead effort but failed to make real contact and the visitors cleared.
  Kiwi striker Greg Draper, so often the scourge of Bangor in recent seasons fired narrowly wide from distance with goakeeper Brino clearly trying to make a save if necessary.
  Saints winger Cielsewic threatened closer to the interval but the home defence snuffed out the danger and the referee brought the half to a close.
  So all square at the interval.



HALF TIME 0-0 
  No changes at the interval
  Bangor continued to look the more positive side and deservedly took the lead on 52 minutes as Simone Rea headed home at the near post from a corner. Seven minutes later a first change for the home side as Francesco Di Crescenzo replaced midfielder Yalany Baio.
  On 72 minutes it took a well timed challenge from Lucas Surber to keep the marauding Draper at bay as the visitors stepped up their efforts to find an equaliser. And five minutes later the Saints centre forward released Kurtis Byrne to run on goal and slot home beyond the exposed Brino.
  By now the Welsh Premier full timers were in command and it took a great save from Brino to deny goalscorer Byrne and send the game straight into a penalty shoot out.
  PENALTY SHOOT OUT
  The shoot out began with Greg Draper who missed before Massimo Sammartino put City one nil ahead.
  Next goalkeeper Paul Harrison scored but Francesco Serafino put City two one ahead.
  TNS winger Adrian Ciesleswic converted as did Gozzerini for Bangor for a three two advantage for the hosts.
  Left back Chris Marriott missed which meant a success for Lucas Surber would send Bangor through - and he did just that.
  An impressive win for Bangor against the leading side in the Welsh domestic system.

  Bangor tasted defeat for the first time this season at the hands of near neighbours Llandudno who had two penalties amongst their tally.
  The visitors forced a couple of early chances through Robbie Parry and Lee Thomas before they went ahead on 19 minutes.
  Llandudno celebrated a penalty awarded for handball against Simone Rea which was converted by Dean Seagar for a one nil advantage.
  Goalscorer Seagar went close again but it was City who scored to level the scores on 33 minutes when Aldair Neto cut in onto his left foot to fire past the experienced Shaun Pearson.
  Pearson was the busier of the two keepers by now as Bangor pushed for a second goal but Dan Stephens was on hand to scrape one goal boound effort of the line to keep the scores level.
  So all square at the interval at one apiece.


HALF TIME 1-1

  No changes at the interval
  Bangor went close through the experienced Ashley Ruane whilst Llandudno's closest effort came from former blues winger Robbie Parry.
  Just before the hour mark Emmanuel Agyemang nearly put City ahead before a change for the viistors as the powerful Alfons Fosu Mensah replaced goalscorer Dean Seagar.
  On 67 minutes City had the lead as Emmanuel Agyemang headed home beyond Pearson.
  But the joy was short lived as a second penalty awarded for handball gifted a spot kick opportunity to Robbie Parry who did not miss again his former club on 69 minutes.
  A minute after the equaliser the pacey Pomieye then crossed from the right for fellow substitute Alfons Fosu Mensah to tap home from close range.
  Bangor bounced back with a period of dominance but the visitors looked dangerous on the break.
  Either way neither side could alter the scoreline and the home side suffered their first defeat of the JD Cymru North campaign.
  Next up for Bangor the Nathaniel Cup visit of The New Saints on Tuesday night

  Kick off at Talwrn Road was delayed due to heavy traffice and congestion along the A55 caught the travelling Bangor contingent.
  But it failed to derail unbeaten Bangor took all three points thanks to a first half strike from Francesco Serafino.
  But with some players arriving later than others City had to resuffle the starting line up and allow others to fill the bench spaces as they could.
  On thirteen minutes Bangor had the lead as Francesco Serafino slotted home from a tight angle after he intercepted a wayward back pass and left former Porthmadog goalkeeper Tyler French stranded..
  Bangor pushed for a second, Callum McMInimee was shown the yellow card before midway through half Llangefni won a freekick which forced a good save from visitors goalkeeper Gabriele Brino. Alun Roberts and Steven Kehoe also went close for the home side.
  City defender Piero Cauterucci was also yellow carded before on the stroke of half time Tyler French pulled off a fine save to deny Aldair Neto a second Bangor goal.
  So a slender advantage for Cty at the interval before the 400+ Talwrn Road crowd.


HALF TIME 0-1

  No changes at the interval for either side.
  Both sides still in the game but Llangefni goalkeeper Tyler French still very much the busier of the two keepers.
  City made a couple of changes as David Thompson and Ashely Ruane came on for Yalany Baio and Aldair Neto respectively, whilst Llangefni sent on Steff Jones and one time Bangor player Mike Lundstram for Callum McMinimee and Iwan Jones.
  Towards the end of the match Emmanuel Agyemang spurned a glorious opportunity to put the match beyond doubt but it mattered not at the final minutes were played out before referee Mark James blew for the final whistle. Three points which lift Bangor to fifth despite the disadvantage of the late start to not only this game but the season as a whole.
  Next league action for Bangor is the visit of Llandudno to Nantporth next Saturday.

  Bangor were held to a draw by table toppers Flint in a game which saw home debutant Kiwande stretched off on twenty minutes and defender Lucas Surber red carded n the second half.
  The visitors took a 16th minute when former Conwy utility man Andy Brown the space to convert Mark Cadwallader's cross from close range.
  Bangor looked to respond but where thwarted when referee Tom Williams yellow carded Emmanuel Agyemang for simulation.
  On twenty minutes things went from bad to worst for City as debutant Damase Kiwanda was stretched off to be replaced by Aldair Neto.
  Kemp was shown the yellow card for a foul on the marauding Massimo Sammartino before on 42 minutes John Danby did well to keep out Emmanuel Agyemang's goalbound header.
  Literally moments later the scores were level as Emmanuel Agyemang steered the ball beyond former Chester goalkeeper John Danby.
  In the very last seconds of the first half visitors Flint thought they had regained the lead through Ritchie Foulkes but their effort was disallowed on the advice of the linesman.
  So all square at the interval at one apiece.


HALF TIME 1-1

  No changes at the interval
  Bangor picked up the pace in the second half and gained momentum despite pickng up yellow cards for Pavel Vieira and Lucas Surber.
  On the hour a second change of the evening for City as Azizou Zoumbare replaced Ashley Ruane.
  With twenty minutes to play a second yellow card and red dismissal for defender Surber who petulantly kicked the ball away and gave the fussy Mr Petch an easy option.
  Bangor continued to do well despite the numerical disadvantage but had to settle for a point against the league leaders who had new goalkeeper signing John Danby to thank for the share of the spoils.
  A theme for City so far this season has been a lack of goals and with the transfer window now closed this must be addressed on the training ground - and pitch - rather than through reinforcements.
  Next up for Bangor away at Llangefni on Friday night.

  Bangor kept up their fine start to the season with a Loosemores Cup win at Conwy a couple of weeks after drawing their season opener at Y Morfa.
  City gave a debut to Piero Cauterucci and brought Simone Rea onto the bench. As you might expect from a Conwy side managed by former Bangor defender Warren Gibbs the home side included a splattering of former blues including Iolo Hughes, Craig Whelan, Rob Jones and Harry Galeotti.
  Playing into the wind Bangor had the better of the opening stages and might have gone ahead on seven minutes when Francesco Serafino went close from Massimo Sammartimo's cross.
  On twenty minutes left winger Aldair Neto cut inside but fired into the side netting, five minutes later Ashley Ruane latched onto Neto's pass but the home defence closed the door on him.
  Gradually Borough fought their way into the game and brought blues keeper Brino into the action. As time ran out Harry Galeotti was inches away from a telling contact but it was City who left the field with a single goal advantage.



HALF TIME 0-1
  No changes at the interval for either side.
  Both sides made an early change as Bangor sent on Harry Blackburn for debutant Cauterucci and Conwy replaced the dangerous Corrig McGonigle with Liam Morris.
  Bangor were awarded a freekick which David Thompson lined
