  Bangor 1876 made their debut in the FAW Welsh Cup against Welsh Alliance visitors Pwllheli.
  And despite missing leading goalscorer Jamie Petrie through illness the blues overcame their higher ranked opponents .
 
The absence of Petrie meant a recall for powerful leftback Shaun Lock and a more advanced berth for the hugely promising Jos Lloyd Jones who seized his "promoton" with both hands.
  Both sides forged half chances either side of the quarter hour mark as Dafydd Gwyn Jones went close for the visitors before Dylan Summers Jones fired over for Bangor. Next Leon Jones did well to deby Pwllheli attacker Steffan Toplis.
  But it was Bangor who scored first on twenty two minutes as Jos Lloyd Jones scored at the back post from Dylan Summers Jones low cross from the right.
  Chances came and went at both ends with former Bangor City youngster Marcus Banks going close for Pwllheli before Louis McFarlane forced a good save from visiting goalkeeper Lee Fletcher. Bangor's old guard of Les Davies and Dylan Williams both went close before Shaun Lock saw his shot deflected for a corner.
  But on the stroke of half time Pwllheli drew level.
  A freekick on the edge of the box was crashed home by former Porthmadog midfielder Gareth Jones Evans to give blues goalkeeper Leon Jones no chance.
  It was too late for 1876 to respond and the two sides left the field with the scores level.


HALF TIME 1-1


  No changes at the interval.
  Bangor pushed the visitors back and Les Davies saw his freekick blocked before on 56 minutes a double roll of the dice as Ben Owen and Matthew Lock replaced Louis McFarlane and Luke Steele.
  With Ben Owen catching the eye in midfield Bangor went close as Dylan Summers Jones had an effort blocked, then Les Davies fired narrowly wide.
  On 72 minutes Bangor regained the lead.
  This time the provider was Shaun Lock who cleanly struck low cross was again turned home by Jos Lloyd Jones for a brace against his former club.
  No sooner had Jason Banks replaced Jamie Underwood than Pwllheli might have drawn level but the unlucky Dafydd Gwyn Jones hit the post.
  But on 78 minutes it was Bangor who added to their tally as double goalscorer Jos Lloyd Jones crossed for midfielder Cameron Barry to net from close range for a three one advantage.
  Immediately Benn Lundstram trotted on in place of Shaun Lock and the young striker hit the post with his first chance. At the death midfielder Dylan Williams went close but it was not to be and the final whistle blew on a three one win for Bangor.
  The draw likely to be made over the next few days.

  Bangor 1876 made their debut in the FAW Welsh Cup at the preliminary round stage against visitors Llandudno Athletic.
  And despite falling behind to an early Athletic strike the new club can look forward to the second preliminary draw over the next few days.
 
The home side went close early on through Dylan Summers Jones and left footer Jos Lloyd Jones with Llandudno goalkeeper Adams soon into the action.
 
Bangor fans were shocked though on eleven minutes when young Lee Stokes put the Llandudno based side ahead with a well placed effort bent around Leon Jones.
  This spurred the home side and Les Davies and Dylan Summers Jones both worried Adams as the pressure mounted. Next up it was Cameron Barry and Jamie Petrie who went close without making the important break through.
  But just short of the half hour mark Bangor drew level from the penalty spot after Matt McElroy handled and this inevitably meant Jamie Petrie who netted his eleventh goal of the season.
  Moments later Matthew Lock replaced Louis McFarlane at rightback for Bangor.
  And three minutes later on 32 minutes midfielder Cameron Barry (left) put the blues ahead with a close range finish after good work from experienced midfielder Dylan Williams.
  Both sides went close as Williams shot on goal before Athletic goalscorer Lee Stokes forced a good save from Leon Jones.
  The home side now had the iniative and pushed the visitors back and it was no surprise two minutes before the break when Cameron Barry turned provider with a pull back for young defender Cian Williams to make it three one.
  Midfielder Dylan Williams was central to most of Bangor's better moments and he went close to adding a fourth just before the interval but goalkeeper Dan Adams saved well.
  An emphatic response from Bangor to losing that early goal as they left the field with a two goal advantage.



HALF TIME 3-1


  No changes at the interval.
  Bangor continued to push forward with Dylan Summers Jones determined to get his name on the scoresheet but his header grazed the crossbar.
  Then a yellow card for goalkeeper Adams as Les Davies seized on some defensive uncertainty which resulted in a corner. Ten minutes after the restart Benn Lundstram trotted on in place of midfielder Dion Jones as Bangor went for all out attack. Within minutes the young replacement gathered Cameron Barry's pass but fired narrowly wide.
  The home side forged but failed to take chances as they pressed forward. Substitutes Mathew Lock and Benn Lundstram both going close.
  Jamie Petrie blasted on goal but felled the unfortunate Alex Stokes before Les Davies, Benn Lundstram and Lock all went close.
  On 82 minutes a fourth goal finally arrived as young Dylan Summers Jones slid the ball past Adams for his ninth goal of the season. Moments later the Anglesey striker hit the woodwork as the pressure continued on the visitors goal.
  But that was the end of the scoring and the whistle blew on an emphatic home win and a place in the next round.
  Manager Mel Jones would be pleased with the result and no doubt the goals being contributed not just by the frontmen but also midfielders and defenders adding the threat.
  The draw likley to be made over the next few days.

  Bangor 1876 continued their fine start to the new season with a convincing win over Llangoed at Tyddyn Paun.
  Once again they did so after a stern examination from the home side.
  There was a debut at rightback for former Bangor City youngster Louis McFarlane and a rest for young marksman Dylan Summers Jones who began the match on the bench.
  Just short of the twenty minute mark young Cameron Barry fired wide, and effort which seemed to provoke a fierce responce from the Island side who pushed Bangor back with a number of corners which Michael Johnston and co repelled confidently.
  On the half hour Les Davies set up Benn Lundstram who shot wide before Llangoed responded through Llion Roberts who also narrowly missed the target.
  Into the closing five minutes Les Davies saw his shot deflected for a corner which in turn dropped to Cian Williams but the young defender prodded wide.
  But in the final minute of the first half Bangor took the lead as Les Davies fired home from close range to the delight of the hundreds of blues who had made the short journey across the Menai Straits.
  There was no time for the home side to respond and it was Bangor who left the field with a solitary goal advantage.


HALF TIME 0-1

  No changes at the interval.
  But 1876 came out with the wind in their sails and determined to add to the slender lead.
  Bangor pushed forward and witin moments of the restart Dylan Williams was fouled for a penalty confidenlty converted by Jamie Petrie for his first of the afternoon.
  Ten minutes into the second half Jamie Roberts was shown the yellow card for a foul on goalscorer Petrie before on the hour mark leading goalscorer Dylan Summers Jones trotted on for midfielder Dylan Williams.
  Jamie Petrie went close to a second but with around fifteen minutes to go he got not one but two in quick fire fashion.
  First on 74 minutes Jamie Petrie fired home through a defenders legs from a tight anle on the right, then three minutes later Jamie Petrie grabbed his hatrick with a close range finish.
  Ten minutes from time substitute Dylan Summers Jones hit the crossbar from the penalty spot and moments later hatrick hero Petrie was replaced by sixteenyear old Leon Owens.
  And three minutes after his introduction young Leon Owens reacted quickly to a Steff Taylor throw in to race on goal and beat Rhys Owen with a calm finish for a five nil final scoreline.
  So another impressive win for Bangor with goals shared between young and more experienced players once again.

  Bangor 1876 continued their fine start to the season with victory over Nefyn who represented the biggest test yet to the newly built club and team.
  This time the Treborth crowd topped 400 on a hot sunny afternoon which saw City forced to come from behind for the first time.
 
Bangor went close in the opening minutes through leading goalscorer Dylan Summers Jones but it was the visitors who took the lead.
  On 13 minutes former Bangor City wnger Carl Jones fired home on the half volley for a one nil advantage.
  But if there were any nerves amongst the home players or supporters these were settled three minutes later as Jamie Petrie converted a penalty awarded for a foul on the persistent little striker.
  Just before the twenty minute mark Bangor might have had a second penalty but nothing doing, moments later Leon Jones did well to keep out a well struck effort from Nefyn captain Daniel Roberts.
  On the half hour mark the impressive Les Davies crossed for Jamie Petrie to head his second of the afternoon and put Bangor head for the first time.
  Jos Lloyd went close against his former club before Les Davies crashed a trademark strike against the Nefyn crossbar after good work from young midfielder Cameron Barry.
  So a slender lead for Bangor at the interval with both sides very much in the game.


HALF TIME 2-0 


  One changes at the interval as Luke Steelre replaced the injured Jamie Thomas.
  Twelve minutes after the restart Leon Jones did well to deny Carl Jones who again hit the target with a long range effort.
  On 67 minutes Bangor had a third as Les Davies seized on some hesitation in the Nefyn defence to slide the ball round goalkeeper Jones and give the home side a two goal cushion.
  Understandably the weather took its toll on the players and Bangor sent on Benn Lundstram for goalscorer Jamie Petrie with around a quarter of an hour to play.
  Both sides had half chances but nothign of note as time ran out on another home win for Bangor 1876 at Treborth before a record crowd of 404.
  The more influential Bangor player was the selfless Les Davies with another assist and a first goal of the new campaign.

  Bangor 1876 ran riot against their Holyhead visitors to secure a first home league win of the season.
  Another 300+ crowd filled Treborth but they had to wait fifteen minutes or so after the scheduled 6.30pm start time for the replacement referee Martin Roberts to get things underway.
 
Bangor took a while to get into their stride and created little of note in the opening twenty minutes. But soon after the blues forwards, led by Les Davcies, began to serve notice of what was to follow on visiting goalkeeper Kieran Weeks. The big striker saw one header saved by Weeks as pressure mounted.
  And on 33 minutes Bangor had the lead. Leading goalscorer Dylan Summers Jones hit the woodword but Jamie Petrie was on hand to net from close range to keep up his goal a game record for the season.
  Five minutes later the young provider turned goalscorer as Dylan Summers Jones stroked the ball home from a Les Davies knock down.
  A two goal advantage for Bangor then although Caergybi striker James Ryan troubled Leon Jones a couple of times without really threatening the home goal.

HALF TIME 2-0 

  No changes at the interval.
  But the mood in the Bangor camp was changed beyond recognition as the second half turned into a rout.
  On 58 minutes Bangor went three up as Dylan Summers Jones got the better of Weeks from a Jamie Petrie cross for his second of the game.  Two minutes later it was four nil as defender Cian Williams flicked the ball home from Cameron Barry's cross from the left.
  On 54 mintes it was five nil with young Barry again the provider with a corner headed home by Jamie Petrie for his second of the night.
  On 65 minutes big Les Davies set up Dylan Summers Jones whose brilliant right footed  finish beat Weeks all ends up.
  The young marksman was denied further opportunities as Dylan Summers Jones made way for Leon Owen on 72 minutes.
  But the goals kept on flowing as Cameron Barry got his name on the scoresheet, finishing a chance created by Dylan Williams and Les Davies on 75 minutes.
  Three minutes later Bangor got their eighth of the evening as Les Davies released Jos Lloyd Jones who beat Weeks and tapped the ball into the empty net.
  With ten minutes remaining a further change for Bangor as Jamie Petrie made way for Steff Taylor.
  On 84 minutes Jos Lloyd Jones continued to enjoy his romp higher up the pitch with his second goal of the evening with a fine strike from the edge of the box.
  And on the stroke of time big Les Davies again the provider with a selfless lay off for substitute Leon Owens to cap the scoring off and make it ten nil.
  It would be easy to crow over the Holyhead side but credit to them for sticking to their principles and to stand in referee Roberts for stepping in at short notice.
  Bangor have made a good start to life in the Gwynedd League and will hope to keep the fine goalscoring form going..

  Bangor 1876 played their first competitive home match against FAW Trophy visitors Sychdyn at Treborth.
  And as in the first "proper" game a week earlier it was teenage striker Dylan Summers Jones who led the charge as Bangor overcame Sychdywn by five goals to one. This time though the Gaerwen marksman notched a hatrick not a brace.
 
Bangor once again had selection issues with leftback Shaun Lock and midfielder Dion Jones not able to play.
 
On ten minutes the visitors silenced the home crowd with what looked like the opening goal but nerves were calmed by a home freekick for a push on a blues defender.
 
1876 settled and generally dominated play without managing to make the break through.
 
But as the match appeared to be heading for a scoreless first half but that all changed when Bangor were awarded a penalty on 42 minutes for a foul on Jamie Petrie who picked himself and sent Sychdyn goalkeeper Craig Hughes the wrong way to put the blues a goal ahead.
  And that was about it as the referee blew for the break and all and sundry headed for refreshments with Bangor holding a slender advantage over their North East Wales area visitors.

HALF TIME 1-0 


 No changes at the interval.
  Both sides still very much in the hunt for a place in the seconde round draw.
  Bangor extended their lead on 51 minutes as Dylan Summers Jones beat the home defence and fired home for his first of the afternoon.
  Seven minutes later a second penalty of the afternoon offered the chance of a three nil lead which Jamie Petrie again accepted to give Bangor a clear advantage.
  The game was soon beyond Sychdyn as Dylan Summers Jones got his second to make it four nil on 71 minutes.
  But the Mold area visitors refused to read the script and fought back to reduce the deficit with a goal from substitute Tim Hughes.
  Bangor made a couple of changes with Steff Taylor and Dioin Williams entering the fray.
  In the closing stages though Dylan Summers Jones grabbed his hatrick with a close range finish to make the final score five one to Bangor after a fine flowing move which began with blues goalkeeper Leon Jones.
  The youngster has now scored five in the opening two games of the season! An incredible start.
  Bangor will hope that fine vein of form continues as the games - league and cup - start to come thick and fast.

  Bangor 1876 began life with a deserved win against Ogwen Tigers at Bethesda Rugby Club.
  But they were made to work hard against a determined and well organised Tigers team who fought back from a goal down to leave the scores level at the interval.
  Credit to Ogwen Tigers for a well organised afternoon, the impressive bar at Bethesda Rugby club would put most WP grounds to shame with the four hundred strong crowd well catered for. Also a special mention for the local referee known as Chizel who kept order in the middle despite having only club linesmen for support.
  Mel Jones had to rule out three of his back four, with leftback Shaun Lock and centreback Cian Williams injured and Michael Johnston serving the final match of a suspension from last season. Josh Jones slotted in at leftback with Luke Steele and Dion Jones forming a new centreback partnership.
  Bangor started the better in light rain, winning a penalty on five minutes which young Dylan Summers Jones lashed over the bar. Moments later home number nine Kieron Bullock tried his luck but Leon Jones was alert to the danger and moments later muffed his shot from the edge of the box.
  On the quarter hour the Tigers had a penalty appeal waved away but were awarded their first corner which was cleared by Benn Lundstram. Encouraged by this the home side created a couple of half chances which saw Kieron Bullock and Marc Wilson shoot from distance, the latter seeing his effort crash into the side netting.
  When Bangor threatened Alex Griffiths did well for the hosts with his anticipation and decisive defending.
  Midway through the half Bangor won their fourth corner of the rain swept afternoon before Dylan Summers Jones ran on goal but dragged his effort wide under pressure from Tomos Jones.
  But on 28 minutes Bangor had the lead as Dylan Summers Jones headed home with Shane Owen unable to react. A first ever competitive goal for the Anglesey youngster.
  Bangor were on top but Ogwen Tigers very much in defiant mode and after he had threatened a couple of times it was Kieron Bullock who shot home from the left to the delight of the home players and support on 36 minutes.
  One player who has grown game by game for City is sixteen year old rightback James Thomas and it was his decisive defending that snuffed out another Tigers attack.
  Four minutes before the break an inviting ball from leftback Josh Jones just evaded a sliding effort from Les Davies and that was about it as Mr Jones blew for the break with the sides level on one apiece and all to play for.
No 11 Dylan Summers Jones is congatulated by his fellow strikers after putting Bangor one nil up at rainswept Bethesda.

HALF TIME 1-1

  No changes at the interval.
  But with the towering quarry now clearer in view the rain had stopped and the warm breeze dried out the sodden spectators hats and coats...
  Bangor seemed to have been revved up at the interval and immediately won a couple of corners which saw Jamie Petrie cross but Benn Lundstam's effort was blocked.
  The experienced Dylan Williams wearing four in midfield did much to anchor and organise the blues side and set up waves of attack.
  The pressure mounted as a ninth corner duly arrived on 54 minutes and Dylan Summers Jones headed in his second of the game to put the blues ahead to a raucous reception from the visting horde. Five minutes later the pacey striker was charging clear when pulled back by Tomos Jones who was perhaps fortunate to see yellow and not red.
  A tenth corner came and went before on 62 minutes Benn Lundstram crossed from the right  for Jamie Petrie to slot in a third for Bangor from close range.
  On 73 minutes Jamie Thomas crossed for Benn Lundstram who make it four one and seal the victory for the newly built blues side.
  The young strikers seem set for productive seasons for Bangor if pre season and this opening game are anything to go by.
  The Tigers responded by sending on a couple of substitutes in the form of 17 Dan Richards for Marc Wilson and 12 Adrian Roberts for Ryan Hughes.
  Bangor kept pressing and an eleventh corner came before on 76 minutes goalscorer Dylan Summers Jones left to warm applause as he was replaced by Steff Taylor.
  The game was drifting towards what by now seemed the inevitable conclusion when Dion Williams came on for the hugely impressive Jamie Thomas with some five minutes left. Bangor had unsung heroes at the back where Luke Steele worked hard to plug the gaps and leftpeg Jones caught the eye with his measured use of the ball.
  But that was about it as referee Jones blew for time and the visiting fans celebrated a first ever win for their new side.
  More than that of course the four hundred or so Bangor fans who had travelled along the A5 had come to celebrate the birth of a new club and the players did not let them down despite the difficult conditions. The adventure has begun!
Jamie Petrie makes it three one.
FINAL SCORE 1-4

Bodedern 2 v 3 Bangor 1876

  Bangor 1876 won their final pre season friendly thanks to a late winner from Dylan Summers Jones.
  This was a slightly different looking Bangor side with Trialist aplenty, especially at the back.
  And hosts Bodedern exploited any possible uncertainty the changes may have made by taking an eleventh minutes lead through Jordan Taylor.
  But the visitors were level six minutes later as young striker Benn Lundstram converted a penalty and six minutes later Les Davies put Bangor ahead for the first time.
  So a slender advantage for 1876 at the interval.
  Half Time 1-2
  The second was goalless until the closing minutes.
  First on 87 minutes Bodedern levelled the scores but two minutes later Bangor had a second penalty, this time for a foul on Jamie Petrie. Up stepped Dylan Summers Jones to seal the victory and send the travelling blues home happy.
  So another win for the new Bangor side, all achieved against higher ranked opposition. Grounds for optimism ahead of the weekend's league opener against Ogwen Tigers at Bethesda Rugby Club.

Bangor 1876 3 v 1 Greenfield

  Bangor 1876 kept up their winning run with another win over higher ranked opposition,
  But before kick off the 300 strong crowd stood in silence as all present marked the passing of Gwyn Pierce Owen.
 
In the early exchanges Leon Jones saved well from Brett Johns before  Dion Jones fired wide ffrom distance.
  Dylan Summers Jones went close for Bangor before both sides had a goal disallowed for offside.
  Young Summers Jones fired close again thanks to a Les davies assist before the Gaerwen striker fired just over with goalkeeper Lewis Hall exposed once more.
  So a blank scoreline at the interval but plenty to entertain the Treborth crowd.
  Half Time 0-0
  At half time Dylan Williams came on as a substitute.
  Ten minutes after the restart Bangor deservedly took the lead.as Jamie Petrie slotted home from a tight angle.
  After Les Davies went close it was Benn Lundstram who doubled the Bangor lead with right footed volley.
  With around ten minutes left on the clock Greenfield pulled one back through Sam Jones who turned home a cross from the right.
  At the very last City were awarded a penalty for a foul on Dylan Summers Jones which A Trialist scored to wrap up the scoring and the victory.
  Friendlies are no substitute for competitive games but it is hard to see who pre season could have gone much better for the new club or team. Ogwen Tigers next Saturday..

Gresford Athletic 1 v 2 Bangor 1876

  Bangor 1876 kept up their pre season promise with an encouraging two one in at Gresford Athletic.
  And with the Cymru Alliance (or CymruNorth) hosts enjoying the lions share of possession, especially in the second half,  it was goalkeeper Leon Jones and his defence who earned the plaudits for a job well done.
  Bangor settled quickly and took the lead on three minutes as Dylan Summers Jones latched onto a cross from the left to fire home from eight yards.
  Ten minutes later Les Davies found the target but his shot lacked real menace and Jones gathered.
  Minutes later the big striker fired over from distance as City enjoyed a fine opening.
  Left sided Gresford attacker Jordan MacCarter proved their chief menace and he fired powerfully on goal but Leon Jones pulled off a fine save.
  Gresford worked their way back into the game and won a series of corners but Leon Jones and the back four defended well and the half time whistle blew with Bangor still a goal to the good.

  Half Time 0-1

Leon Jones saves from the spot!
  No changes at half time.
  Ten minutes after the restart, with Bangor now attacking the Clappers Lane End, a series of events unfolded which was to shape the outcome.
   First on 56 minutes a penalty to Gresford lined up by Jake Eyre but well saved by Leon Jones with Bangor clearing the loose ball.
  The ten minutes later a foul on Dylan Summers Jones resulted in a Bangor penalty which the young striker confidently converted himself.  It says a great deal about the confidence the more experienced forwards have in the Anglesey youngster that he was offered the opportunity.
  With fifteen minutes remaining Gresford had one back when Cian Williams turned the ball beyond Bangor's replacement goalkeeper following a fine cross from the left. This was unduly harsh on the young centreback who had impressed at the heart of the visitors defence.
  Both sides rang the changes and gradually Bangor regained some parity which saw Les Davies goal close before the final whistle blew on another encouraging win over higher ranked opposition.

Bangor 1876 3 v 1 Holywell Town

  Bangor 1876 notched their first win in their first home game and gave the 300+ crowd plenty to cheer.
  The starting line up was very similar to the one in action at Chester two days earlier as Bangor hosted Welsh Alliance visitors Holywell Town.
  After Jamie Petrie has fired wide earlier in the proceedings Bangor took the lead on 18 minutes.
  The former Connahs Quay striker sent over a corner thumped on goal by Dylan Summers Jones. His effort was blocked but Dion Jones took the close range opportunity to celebrate signing for 1876 and score the first home goal.
  Llanfairfechan based Dion was captain of Chester FC youths having recently played for Llandudno.
  Young strikers Dylan Summers Jones and Benn Lundstram carved half chances as the tall Holywell defence struggled to deal with their pace and movement.
  The only negative note of the first half was a muscle injury which forced Iwan Williams off before half time but the home side deservedly led by that solitary strike at the interval.
  The experienced Williams was replaced in midfield by a trialist.
  Half Time 1-0
  At half time goalscorer Joners was replaced by Cameron Barry.
  Two minutes into the second period Bangor doubled their lead. Long throw specialist Shaun Lock arrowed his delivery to the head of Les Davies whose flick was finished forcibly by Jamie Petrie.
  Dylan Summers Jones went close with a shot from distance before Bangor went three nil up on 55 minutes.
  A flighted clearance from Michael Johnston sent Jamie Petrie chasing on goal. Mike Platt raced out but fluffed his clearance and a second goal just needed a simple finish.
  Holywell came back into the game, perhaps partly due to both sides making changes, and pulled on goal back with twelve minutes left on the clock through former FC Nomads defender Jacob Wise who headed home from a corner.
  Both sides went close in the final minutes. Benn Lundstram forced a good save from Mike Platt from a freekick before Bangor's replacement goalkeeper saved well at the foot of his post.
  The whistle blew on a deserved first ever win warmly reveived by the Treborth crowd.

25th July 2019
Chester 2 v 1 Bangor 1876

  Bangor 1876 lost at Chester on Thursday evening but this was as close as the scoreline suggests.
  The Bangor side was buoyed by an impressive performance by the trialist wearing 4 in centre midfield and the presence of big Les Davies upfront. Both were central to a much improved performance against a Chester side made up of several first teamers and some youth team players. The first teamers included former Everton & Motherwell goalkeeper Russ Griffiths, Matty Waters, former blue Bradley Jackson, Matty Hughes and record signing Akwasi Asante upfront.
  Chester took the lead on three minutes when left peg Matty Waters sliced his deep cross over Leon Jones and inside the back post. An early goal sent a ripple of concern amongst the Bangor followrs.
  But Bangor went close when leftback Shaun Lock released Les Davies but he dragged his effort wide. Right winger Dylan Summers Jones, who was doing well patrolling the right flank, got forward to shoot on turn but Russ Griffiths held well.
  And on 22 minutes Bangor were level as Les Davies shot from the right and Griffiths was distracted by Jamie Petrie and the ball slide home. The Truck on target for 1876 for the first time.
  But on 28 minutes Matty Hughes netted at the near post to restore the home advantage. Minutes later Bangor forced a couple of corners but the home defence stood strong.
  Former Bangor Cty midfielder Brayden Jackson was the chief threat for Chester whilst Michael Johnston and his young apprentice Cian Williams were defending well, aided it must be said by a fine performance from rightback Jamie Thomas and the experienced Lock. Midfield trialist 4 was outstanding just infront of the blues defence.
  Sign him on!
  Half Time 2-1
  The second half began with Chester going close twice as Asante hit the post and Water crashed his effort against the crossbar.
  After that a ceaseless array of substitutions broke up play too often and, as a gripe, it would seem a better plan for both clubs to agree to multiple changes on the hour for instance unless dictated by injuries.
  Putting that to on side Bangor fought well, Les Davies played the ninety minutes and put his height and strength to good use in defence when danger threatened.
  Both sides ended up with changed teams, Chester much younger than before, Bradley Jackson went close whilst a Bangor trialist shot wide when he ran through. Shaun Lock had an effort blocked but the equaliser would not come.
  But purely from a football point of view this was a much more useful, productive evening for Mel Jones and co who must be happy with the effort and performance.

  Bangor 1876 played their first ever game at Broadhurst Park in Moston, Manchester, home of FC United before a crowd of more than 800 bolstered by more than 250 singing the name of the visiting team.
  Forget the scoreline, this was about being there to watch or play as history was made thanks to the tireless perseverance of the supporters who built a club from scratch.
  The welcome from the fan owned Manchester club was warm at the hugely impressive Broadhurst Park, a 6m new build stadium. Around the ground flags and banners from both sets of supporters side by side.
  On the pitch the gulf in class was evident. FC United would sit comfortably in the WP and probably tilt for a top four place.
  The home side took the lead inside three minutes through Louis Myers before former Bala striker Paul "Charlie" Ennis doubled the lead on twelve minutes.
  The pace and movement of the NPL side was unsettling the blues defence for whom Michael Johnston and the hugely promising Cian Williams worked overtime.
  On the terraces, behind the goal, Bangor fans burst into a verse or two of "shoes off" which prompted a response from the home contingent of "you've only got one shoe"!"
  Goalscorer Myers forced a good save from goalkeeper Leon Jones who was also in defiant mood. After a lull of around twenty minutes the goals flowed again on the hot sunny Moston afternoon. On 34 and then 35 minutes Charlie Ennis grabbed his hatrick to announce himself to his new club.
  On 38 minutes Bangor won a freekick five yards outside the box, right of centre. A perfect position for a left footer and so it proved as leftback Shaun Lock stepped up to force a fine save from Paddy Wharton in the United goal. The resulting corner was cleared by the towering home defence.
  The Bangor side had been chasing shadows at time and as half time approached tiredness began to show. On 39 minutes Mike Donohue made it five nil.
  Then on 42 former Nantwich defender Curtis Jones made it six and with the blues looking punchdrunk it was seven on the stroke of half time through midfielder Luke Griffiths, who a year earlier was involved in Bangor City's pre season matches.


HALF TIME 7-0

  Two changes at the interval as Benn Lundstram replaced Lukas Baltovic and rightback Jamie Thomas made way for A Trialist (14). (FC United changes to follow)
  Neither change was a slight on the players withdrawn against higher ranked opposition.
  On 49 minutes substitute Niall Rodney took the lead up to 8-0 despite the best efforts of Leon Jones who had done well to keep out the initial effort. Jones was warmly applauded for his efforts as he replaced by a trialist goalkeeper shortly before the hour mark.
  Bangor defended stoutly and in fairness United shot across goal and wide a couple of times before on 68 minutes a goal applauded by both sets of fans as substitute Chris Sharp headed home from close range. Chris was a popular Bangor City striker whose father Graeme managed the club some years earlier.
  On 71 minutes it was 10-0 as Chris Almond netted for United and thirteen minutes later it was eleven when David Chadwick tapped home before two minutes later United reached a round dozen through Nialle Rodney.
  With both sets of fans drifting to the exit - or bar - Bangor struck.
  On 87 minutes Benn Lundstram shot on target and the bounce deceived replacement goalkeeper Mason Walker to the delight of the travelling blues and just about everyone else. None more so than the Bangor followers who had gathered behind the "far" goal.
  And that was about it as referee Elliott blew for time on a warm Manchester afternoon which had seen the birth of Bangor 1876 at the ground of the famous fan owned FC United.
  Forget the scoreline and savour the occasion.
  An occasion made even sweeter at the final whistle as the United fans sang "We love you Bangor, we do" to the weary blues players who walked over to acknowledge the home support.
Goal! Benn Lundstram
