  Bangor scored a late goal to salvage a point after falling behind in the first half.
  Ill discpline 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)

  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 up but despite the windy conditions he fired his effort too close to Anglesey based goalkeeper Huw Shaw.
  On 65 minutes Sean McCaffery replaced Nathan Williams and moments later Harry Blackburn could not finish when the goal beckoned but it was not too long before the visitors took the lead.
  On 79 minutes defender Eugenio Dalia ghosted in at the back post to drive home from a tight angle. Three minutes later the fullback repeated the dose but could not find the back of the net.
  The final drama of the evening came in added time. Blues substitute Harry Blackburn ran on goal and went down following a collision with outrushing goalkeeper Huw Shaw. Referee Cheryl Foster produced the dreaded red card and the former Cemaes Bay glovesman was in the bath moments earlier than he planned.
  And that was the end of the excitement as the final whistle blew moments later.
  City now host The New Saints in the next round.

  Bangor continued their unbeaten start to the season with a one nil win at Porthmadog who pressed near the end but could not make the crucial breakthrough.
  City gave a first start to Adair Neto whilst the experienced pair Yalany Baio and Pavel Vieira anchored the midfield.
  Neither side created much by way of clear chances  in the opening twenty odd minutes as much of the play occupied the middle of the park.
  The first shot in anger came from blues attacker Emanuel Agyemang who ran on goal but could not get the better of veteran glovesman Paul Pritchard.
  The same pair clashed soon after as Bangor took control but again Pritchard denied the striker.   Porthmadog went close through former Holyhead favourite Jay Gibbs whose freekick was deflected wide of Brino's goal. 
  On 35 minutes Bangor had the lead as Emanuel Agyemang pounced for a close range finish following a cross from the left.
  City dominated the midfield area with Vieira and Baio evident at the heart of the action.
  So a slender lead at the break for Bangor...


HALF TIME 0-1
  Two changes at the interval for Porthmadog who sent on Mel McGinness and Rhys Williams.
  The second half was more evenly contested from the restart with former blues strikert Mel McGinness central to Porthmadog's attacking moves. Fellow substitute Rhys Wiliams went close for Port with a shot which whistled over the crossbar. Azizou Zoumbare gathered possession in midfield and ran for goal but Pritchard saved well.
  On 57 minutes a first change for City as Ashley Ruane came on for Azizou Zoumbare in the visitors attack. But it was substitute Rhys Williams who went close for Porthmadog as he  cuti inside but fired over the crossbar.
  On 69 minutes blues goalkeeper Brino did well to deny Ilan Ap Gareth's effort. Moments later a third and final change for the home side as Sion Parry replaced Rob Evans.
  Porthmadog pushed Bangor back and the viistors were forced to defend as Ilan Ap Gareth shot into the side netting and Rhys Williams missed the target when well placed.
  But City stood strong and despite picking up a couple of late yellow cards kept the clean sheet which meant the three points headed north to Nantporth at the final whistle.
  So fasr so good for the rebuilt blues.

  Bangor began their home league campaign with a three one win over Buckley Town whom they had beatne five one in the opening fixture of the season just over a year ago.
  None of the Bangor side were at the club a year ago but perhaps half a dozen of the visitors played including Keiron Moore and Aled Bellis.
  Bangor took the lead on 17 minutes as Azizou Zoumbare netted from close range despite the best efforts of Bucks keeper Joe Makaruk.
  But the visitors were far from dispirited and levelled the scores on the half hour mark when Pat Hinchcliffe wrong footed blues goalkeeper Gabriele Brino.
  Buckley went close again when Gabriele Brino saved well from visiting striker Jake Roberts' overhead kick.
  But with no further changes to the scoreline the two sides were level at the interval.


HALF TIME 1-1
  No changes at the interval
  Fou rminutes after the restart Bangor regained the lead in strange circumstances.
  A corner from Francesco Serafino travelled into the net and despite Azizou Zoumbare seeming to get a touch the goal was awarded to the initial kicker.
  On 57 minutes City had a two goal cushion as Azizou Zoumbare scored his second of the evening to leave the visitors with a mountain to climb.
  Buckley responded with a double substitutions as Tom Smith and Josh Jones came on for Lewis Hone and Adam Eden and moments later Bangor snet on Yalany Baioin place of Nicholas Delvecchio.
  And despite Bangor creating some good chances through some creative attacking play there were no more goals for either side as the final scorer stood in favour of the home side who begin their climb up the league tabel after a delayed start to the season.
  The only down side for Bangor four yellow cards, likewise Buckley who also saw substitute Tom Smith red carded.
  Next up for Bangor away at Porthmadog on Saturday afternoon.

  Bangor finally got their season underway at Conwy on Saturday afternoon. 
  And despite fashioning some decent openings they were held to a goalless draw by their Morfa hosts.
  This was a first competitive match for City who were able to field the likes of Yalany Baio and Pavel Vieira in midfield and Ashley Ruane upfront with experience in Welsh football alongside several Italian newcomers.
  Bangor settled quicker and won an early corner followed shortly by a freekick pouched by home goalkeeper Huw Shaw.
  Ten minutes before the interval a stoppage in play allowed for Guto Hughes to have treatment. Moments later Bangor goalkeeper Gabriele Brino did well to punch away Corrig McGonigle's cross as Sean McCaffery threatened.
  On 37 minutes Hughes hobbled off to be replaced by another former Bangor City youngster Craig Whelan.
  As tempers frayed Ashley Ruane was shown the yellow card for complaining that he should have had a penalty followed by Conwy midfielder Rob Jones for a foul.
  A good first half for City but with nothing to show for their efforts.


HALF TIME 0-0
  No changes at the interval for either side.
  Ten minutes after the restart  Francesco Serafino was yellow carded before City did well to head clear a dangerous freekick.
  On 68 minutes Harry Blackburn came on for City in place of Emmanuel Agyemang as the visitors looked for the opening goal.
  Ten minutes later with no change to the scoreline Emanuel Zaminga came on for Francesco Serafino.
  With five minutes to go a yellow card for Conwy defender Sion Hogan for kicking the ball away and a third and final change for City as Francesco Leghissa came on for Ashley Ruane. A minute later Leigh Craven replaced Rob Jones.
  So a blank first outing for Bangor but a clean sheet to build on as the new look side takes shape.

FINAL SCORE 0-0

Bangor City 5 v 0 Tranmere Rovers X1

  Bangor City won against a Tranmere Rovers Centre of Excellence side at Nantporth on Saturday afternoon.
 The home side, a mixture of known names and trialists, proved too strong for a young Tranmere side.
 The opening Bangor goal was scored by Emmanuel Agyemang following some fine approach play by Neto.
  A trialist made it two nil and before the half time break Bangor went three up thanks to another trialist.
  The Birkenhead side reduced the deficit before Nicolai Delvecchio made it four one with a powerful strike.
  A trialist made it five on to put the seal on a fine home win as the blues continue to wait for their season proper to start.
  The Arbitration meeting to decide on the Bangor City appeal against the 21 point deduction is due to be heard in Cardiff this Friday 16th August.

Llandudno Albion 0 v 6 Bangor City

  Bangor City won this extra pre season friendly at Llandudno on the afternoon they were scheduled top play near neighbours Conwy Borough in the Nathaniel Cup.
  Before kick off both sides observed a minute's silence as a mark of respect for Gwyn Pierce Owen who died during the week before the match.
  City took a two nil interval lead thanks to a brace of goals from Neto.
  After the interval it quickly became three nil and then four thanks to  Emmanuel Agyemang followed by s strike from Azizou Zoumbare and a sixth duly followed from Francesco Leghissa.
  With Bangor City forbidden from playing competitive matches by the FAW it is unclear when they will play again, or when that matter might be resolves.

Chirk AAA 0 v 4 Bangor City

  Bangor City rounded off their pre season warm up matches with a win at Holyhead Road.
  City took the lead on ten minutes through Emmanuel Agyemang who finished after a couple of half chances had not been taken. Nicolai Delvecchio made it two nil from a freekick to double the advantage but just before the interval the home side were awarded but wasted a penalty kick.
  City thought they had a third soon after the restart but Paul Cliff had his effort chalked off for offiside.
  But it was soon three as Harry Blackburn headed home from James Thomas' cross.
  And on the stroke of full time it was four nil as midfielder Yalany Baio beat the home keeper with a curling effort.
  So a morale boosting win for City ahead of the up and coming JDCymru North camapign.
 



23rd July 2019
Ashton Town 0 v 1 Bangor City

  Bangor City lost by a solitary goal at Edge Green Street on Tuesday night.
  Ashton scored what proved to be the only goal of the games as Jason Carey reacted first from a corner to put the home side ahead.
  With three trialists on the pitch and the same number amongst the substitutes these are still experimental line ups for City who could not find a reply in the remainder of the game.
 
Bangor City: Trialist; Dalia, Surber, Thompson, Sammartino; Baio, Trialist, Delvecchio, Serafino; Agyemang, Blackburn
Substitutes:   Trialist, Cliff, Armstrong, Leghissa, Trialist, Trialist, Zoumbare.

CPD Gwalchmai 2 v 4 Bangor City

  Bangor City came from behind to win at Gwalchmai on Saturday afternoon.
  Gwalchmai took the lead when Gennaro Cuomo conceded a freekick and Mark Griffith took full advantage.
  But Harry Blackburn equalised and not long after Emmanuel Agyemang put the visitors ahead.
  Just before half time Bangor City increased their lead and once again the goalscorer was Emmanuel Agyemang with a calm finish.
  Into the second half Harry Blackburn put Bangor further ahead with a solo goal but Gwalchmai had the last word as former Bangor City Welsh Premier U21s defender Tomos Jones netted to reduce the deficit to 4-2.
  So a win on the road for the rebuilt Bangor side who travel to Holyhead Road to face Chirk AAAs on Friday evening.



13th July 2019
