EDITOR’S WELCOME Good afternoon and welcome to Deeside Stadium for what I am sure will be a very tough challenge against high flying Bangor City. We went to Bangor earlier in the season and picked up a great 2-0 win with Wes Baynes scoring an absolute stunner and it could have been more on the day, but I am sure that today's game will be a lot tighter. In regards to the programme today, we've got our report from the Denbigh victory, our usual great content from Will, Trevor and Dave as well as a look at Bangor's players and history, but we today debut a new feature - The Last Word today's version sees a Q&A with first team Manager, Andy Morrison, and it is a feature we will be aiming to continue through the rest of the season. Enjoy the game and come on The Nomads! Nik

MATCH PREVIEW

Second meet third at Deeside Stadium Today's game sees second-place Nomads host thirdplace Bangor City as both side battle to secure a Top Six berth ahead of the split. The Nomads have had their best start to a season in recent history, having gone 11 games unbeaten in all competitions, trailing TNS by eight points. Bangor have also had a great start to the season, currently sitting just five points behind The Nomads in third place. The sides met earlier this season at Nantporth where a Wes Baynes wonderstrike and a Callum Morris goal against his old club was enough to give The Nomads an early victory in the league. The last time that The Citizens visited Deeside however saw them leave with all three points, as they won 3-1 here last October. Ahead of the all-important game, Manager Andy Morrison said "Welcome to Andy and all associated with Bangor. Today's game will be a real test against a very good Bangor team. I recently watched Bangor play Bala where they totally dominated the game only to get a draw. Leggy has put together a very strong squad with a mix of experience and youth. It is no surprise to me how well he has done since his return to the league - his success over many years at Llanelli proved he is one of the top manager the Welsh Premier League has ever seen ad I have no doubt that Bangor will be a major force for years to come. The free weekend was a welcome break and gave the squad an opportunity to rest up both physically and mentally. Tuesday's session was very bright and intense and on Thursday we specifically focused on Bangor, but yet again, I will have to wait until the day of the game to see who is available to play as long term injuries and niggles continue to hamper our preaparation. I knew there would be tough periods in the season, but what we have experienced is unprecedented. The fact we have the points we've got is a testament to the character and attitude of everyone at the Club." The Nomads vs Bangor City

Nomads reach quarter finals with Denbigh win The Nomads ran out 3-1 winners against Denbigh Town in the Nathaniel MG Cup on Wednesday evening thanks to goals from John Disney and a Michael Wilde brace. The result sent The Nomads through to the quarter finals despite an equaliser from ex-Nomad, Alan Bull. The tie was The Nomads’ first taste of cup competition this season, having been awarded a bye into the second round. They came into the game in good form having yet to lose in the new 6

season, however Denbigh were without a win since August. The Nomads started a strong side with 16-yearold Conor Harwood and 18-year-old Luke Blizzard handed their first full competitive debuts. They joined the likes of Jay Owen, John Disney and Michael Wilde in the lineup. Denbigh meanwhile started a strong side including a number of former Nomads including Alan Bull and Phil Molyneux with Aled Reece and Kieran Gaul on the bench. The game began and both sides went for goal, making for an evenly contested first half. The first real chance of the game came in the 15th minute, when Shelton Payne sent a wicked cross in front of goal towards Nick Rushton, who sent a shot wide of the goal from close range.


Payne was again involved in the action in the 19th minute when he went on a surging run into the Denbigh area before he was tackled, triggering a counter attack from Denbigh which John Danby dealt with well. The Nomads had to wait until the near end of the first half to break the deadlock, when John Disney headed in a Matty Owen corner from the far post in the 37th minute. After this goal, The Nomads nearly doubled their lead when Michael Wilde connected with another Matty Owen corner well, but Denbigh Town keeper John Hodgin saved well from just five yards. At the start of the second half, Denbigh Town went out to stay in the game and it took them just six minutes to achieve this when Alan Bull equalised for the visitors. From a free kick on the very edge of The Nomads’ area, Bull sent a perfectly taken free kick straight into the back of the net. With the game once again in deadlock at 1-1, The Nomads made changes which saw Shelton Payne be replaced by academy graduate Jake Leonard. Leonard joined fellow youth players Harwood and Blizzard on the pitch, who all enjoyed strong and involved performances against Denbigh’s senior opposition. After Leonard won a corner for Nomads, Michael Wilde got The Nomads’ second from that same set piece, connecting with Matty Owen’s corner kick at close range with a strike in the 66th minute. Another academy player was involved in The Nomads' next and final goal in Conor Harwood, who crossed to Wilde who scored from close range again, catching the keeper off his line to score in the 68th minute. This quickfire brace settled the game and gave The Nomads control for the closing stages. Jordan Manley became the fourth academy player to join the action when he replaced goalkeeper John Danby in the 77th minute. Holding their lead comfortably for the last ten minutes of play, Nomads were confirmed as Nathaniel MG cup quarter finalists at full time.

A VIEW FROM THE STAND

BY WILL CATTERALL Hello and welcome to A View From The Stand, where we’re ready for a match that has been looked forward to for many weeks now. Both teams here have had their ups and downs over the years, so it’s fantastic to be able to say that it’s second vs third at Deeside today. If ever our unbeaten record was under threat, it’s during games like the one we expect this afternoon. Bangor have been a breath of fresh air for the league this season, coming over a tough spell from the past two seasons to take 17 points from 10 games so far putting them in good stead for a top six finish. Under Andy Legg’s management, the likes of Jordan Davies and former Nomad Gary Roberts have flourished and we will surely see their quality today along with the typically strong away support. We have the highest expectations at Deeside now, but to tell us at the start of the season we’d be 10 games in and unbeaten would still have sounded ambitious to some in our ranks – to say we’d unbeaten with Ian Kearney, George Horan, Chris Rimmer, Mike Pearson, Lewis Short and Michael Wilde all out with injuries over various games, none of us would have taken it seriously. And yet, the sheer grit and determination of our side has clawed out results against Rhyl, Llandudno and Carmarthen to help us stay second, with John Disney and Jay Owen putting in some ridiculously good shifts at centre back. We’re slowly recovering, but will still need to apply the strength we’ve used over the past month to get a result today, with last weekend’s break a welcome source of energy to use. Bangor will take confidence in the fact they have been beaten us twice in our past three meetings, doing the double over us last season. Our August meeting at Nantporth gave us a 2-0 win with some magic from Wes Baynes thrown in for good measure - but no one will read too much into that scoreline given the progress Legg’s side have made since then. Our run of home games was originally seven but has now extended to eight after we were given another home draw against Rhyl in the Nathaniel MG cup, following a great win against Denbigh Town last week. Remember to come down to our cup clash on Tuesday 25th October following a Welsh Premier meeting with Cardiff Met on the Sunday before. Enjoy the game which will hopefully live up to its potential as one of the best games this season so far. Nomads Ultras Prediction: The Nomads 1-0 Bangor City Nomads Ultras' Player of the Week: Michael Wilde One of marquee signings of the summer, Michael Wilde has brought a wealth of experience to the club, having won the league with TNS and holding the title of the highest scoring WPL player in Europe. He has shown his quality in a Nomads shirt already, with a two minute brace securing our place in the league cup quarter finals. If he’s on the ball today, our prediction above might ring true. 8

GREEN'S PIECE

BY TREVOR GREEN Good Afternoon and welcome to Bangor City. It’s a pity we are playing this game today. Both Bangor and ourselves asked the WPL for permission to play on Friday night but were refused - we then asked to play Saturday and were refused again. Friday would have given us our best gate of the season there would have been more of us here yesterday too. We have no idea why we were refused as the reason given was “we won’t change fixtures in October” - just bizarre, is it to do with Halloween? Or just someone disliking the month for an odd personal reason? Nevertheless, it’s ridiculous and cost us a lot of income. I could have cried with frustration when a day later the League asked us to move an away game at Aberystwyth to a Friday night “to improve the gate for the home club”. You couldn’t make it up! We welcome the Citizens to Deeside once again. For many years, they were just simply better than us. When we beat them here two seasons ago it was for the first time ever in the WPL era. Last year, when we had such a great season, they did the double over us, however, that can’t happen this time around as we have already recorded a 2-0 win up there in this first phase of the League campaign. We have long respected Andy Legg as a manager, his Llanelli teams were very well financed, but that brings its own problems with players vying for status and sometimes believing their own publicity a bit too much. It takes some leadership to manage and he made it look easy. At Bangor he took on a side which had seen some pulling apart and dissent, a poor pre season left him with lots to do, and with not much time to do it. He has marshalled his resources so well that they are looking like “shoe ins” for a top six berth and playing some nice stuff too. They have so far played six games at home; beating Druids (2-1), Newtown (2-1), Bala (2-0), Aber (4-0) and Cardiff Met (2-1) with no draws and a sole defeat (0-2) to us. In the four away games they have drawn at Carmarthen (1-1) Bala (1-1) and lost at both Rhyl (0-1) and TNS (0-4). Seventeen points from 10 games and berthed in third place. Hoodoo or no Hoodoo, they will be respected as adversaries today. We welcome Andy and his staff, the officials of the club and a great band of supporters. It was great to have a week off, the League cup tie against Denbigh was a good thing for us too. Like Bangor, we have been giants on the Academy front for a while and we weren’t Welsh Youth Cup finalists and National Colleges Champions by chance. We have won silverware every year with our youth schemes and we put loads of resources into it. The aim is not to win cups though; the aim is to produce players. Getting a youngster to first team level is hard; the standard of football in the WPL is vastly underrated (the poor infrastructure of most of our grounds and the “Super Twelve" format doesn’t help in terms of promoting a competition the general footballing public can easily understand). However, we are beginning to see some progress; we have Rhys Healey - an established professional at Cardiff City, Tom Bibby and Jack Chambers playing in College football in the USA, Ben Nash and Chris Boyes on loan at lower pyramid first teams. But last time out we saw Conor Harwood and Luke Blizzard play a full game, Jake Leonard and Jordan Manley both came from the bench too. All did well, but Conor showed why he is so well thought of with a show that, I am sure, will see him play more often in the front side. However, we were a bit slow and a bit heavy through the middle, in truth always too good for our Alliance League guests, but not to the degree we had hoped for. Then on came Jake and he lifted the performance, in terms of a little cameo, it was excellent. Can he do it more often and for longer? Well time will tell, but as an introduction to us all it could not have been much better, well done lad! We have never been fans of the Super Twelve double phase format, and we fought against it at its inception. The fact that we are now successful within it has not changed our opinion. We believe it stagnates the Pyramid, promotes one club dominance and confuses the public. We play Bangor today, it’s a big game. We might well play them four times in the league and possibly twice in cups. If we look ahead to April will the fifth meeting have the same feel? The arguments for the format were that; a), There were not a potential sixteen licensed clubs to compete. b). That extending the league would reduce the quality of competition and ,c), That the new structure would protect the national spread of the League ensuring Southern, Mid-Wales and Northern participation. So what has happened, what might happen and how?

The Nomads vs Bangor City


In the following paragraphs and in the next match programme we will put forward some ideas for change and our justifications for them. Starting with reasons to introduce a sixteen team league from 2017/18 season 1). It standardises League strengths in all of the directly affiliated Leagues of the Welsh Pyramid. At present these Leagues are at National Level; • Welsh Premier League 12 clubs • The Welsh Football League Division One 16 clubs • The Cymru Alliance League 16 clubs • The Welsh Alliance League 16 clubs • The Mid Wales League 16 clubs • The Welsh National League Premier Division 16 clubs 2). There are now more than enough clubs to comprise a viable league of 16. There were fifteen licensed Clubs in 2016/17. We have the current twelve WPL clubs, one from the Alliance and two from the Welsh League. Four Alliance clubs and three Welsh League clubs are very near and some dropped out of applying only because their route was shut by losing the chance to get there on Sporting merit when rivals became uncatchable in that season. And I am sure there are others. 3). Sporting merit. The quality of the clubs joining the league can no longer be dismissed. The last two promoted clubs new to the competition are Llandudno and Cardiff Met. Llandudno qualified for Europe in their first season, and Cardiff Met are hovering around the top six. In the cups no fewer than seven WPL clubs were beaten by lower league opponents in last year’s Word cup. Mid table Alliance side Denbigh making it all the way to the final. A further three giant kills occurred in the Welsh Cup. 4). A more equitable competition. Statistics show that the strongest clubs can dominate in a multi fixture system. In Wales, Holland, Scotland and Northern Ireland clubs meet at least four times in a league season. In four games the strongest team tends to win the majority of their fixtures. In Holland Feynord, Ajax and PSV dominate. In Ulster its Crusaders and Linfield. Scotland sees Celtic dominate. In Wales its TNS.In the past four seasons the following clubs have beaten TNS twice. Carmarthen Town; Newtown; Airbus; Prestatyn and ourselves. Only Connah’s Quay have beaten them twice in one season, but given two games, any side can beat or draw with any other. Given four then no one can out point them. Even TNS must gain from a truly competitive structure. It would help their sharpness for European Competition. 5). A 16 team league can be set to ensure greater regional balance. With the current structure clubs have a 1/6 chance of relegation. This prevents clubs supporting initiatives to create a truly representative league. With a 16 team league they have a 2/16 chance of losing their status and consequently a large source of income. Clubs facing only one inter regional journey per club can afford to be more altruistic in supporting development. It would be possible to create a new rule 22 (d) and (e) to accomplish this; 6) The League could be redrawn when it comprises a maximum of sixteen member Clubs. Clubs will play each other on a home and away basis, but only once. The League Champions will still be nominated for the UEFA Champions’ League and the runners up to the UEFA Europa League. The Welsh Cup winners also continue to Qualify. The next four Clubs will play off for the remaining Europa League place. The Play off Competition continues to be organised by the Panel. 7) The league could recognise three geographical areas. These being: • North Wales comprised of clubs based in the Counties of Anglesey, Flintshire, Wrexham, Denbighshire, Conwy and Gwynedd. • Mid and West Wales comprised of clubs based in the Counties of Powys, Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and those straddling the English Border. • South Wales. comprised of clubs based in the Counties of Blaenau Gwent, Bridgend, Caerphilly, Cardiff, Merthyr Tydfil, Monmouthshire, Neath Port Talbot, Newport, Rhondda Cynon Taff, Swansea, Torfaen and the Vale of Glamorgan The highest placed four clubs holding a domestic license in each of the regions would be members of the Welsh Premier League for the following season. The other four places could be allocated to the highest placed licensed team outside of the Welsh Premier League from each region. Replacing the lowest ranked team from that region in membership for the following season. If that had happened at the end of last season then Port Talbot would have been relegated due to loss of license. Haverfordwest would not have been relegated but Cardiff Met, Cefn Druids, Flint Town and Barry Town, would have joined. There would have been no other licensed South, Mid and West or Northern candidates in that season. However if clubs had seen a route to promotion several would have launched themselves at the vacancy. There would be many other variants possible to a sixteen team competition that were not supportable for twelve. The time is right for reform, the super twelve was a good idea at the time, but now it's run its course. Back to this afternoon, we thank Mark Petch, Gareth Wyn Jones, JB Roberts and Phil Roszkowski for their time today. Enjoy the game; hopefully see you next Sunday when Cardiff Met come to visit.

NOMADS' ARCHIVE

LEAGUE OF WALES 2004/05 BY DAVID RAPSON Since moving into the Deeside Stadium in 1998 things had gone somewhat flat for the Nomads. It was true that a best-ever Welsh Premier League placing of fifth just two years previously had bolstered hopes that better times were just around the corner. Twelve months later, however, only a late surge had kept the team in the top half of the league so by starting off the 2004/2005 campaign with a home defeat at the hands of Carmarthen Town hardly augured well for the immediate future: not that losing at home to the Old Gold was exactly unusual. In fact a 2-0 victory at Llanelli followed, courtesy of two early goals from Craig Hutchinson and Tommy Mutton, prior to drawn games with Welshpool Town and Porthmadog so five points by the beginning of September was a reasonable return. Our next game on Deeside was against Bangor City who had already scored 13 goals in their first four matches but it was Nomads who took an early lead through Darren Williams. The Citizens soon hit back and when George Horan conceded an own goal just after the break, Bangor led 3-1. Nomads showed plenty of spirit though and fought back. Tommy Mutton netted in the 72nd minute and Stuart Rain equalised two minutes later but just three minutes from time City striker Frank Mottram drove the ball home to put Bangor top of the table. Not much of a ‘seven-goal thriller’ when you’re on the receiving end! Darren Williams scored in each of the next two games grabbing the winner in a dour 1-0 victory over Afan Lido, who played much of the game with ten men, and scoring Nomads’ only goal in a 1-2 loss away to Newtown – our solitary defeat in a run of five successive away games. October began with a tremendous 5-0 victory at NEWI Cefn Druids where Mutton scored another hat-trick before Nomads shared the points at Haverfordwest County (0-0) and Port Talbot Town (2-2). The League Cup took centre stage in mid-October after Nomads had secured a momentous 1-0 aggregate victory over TNS in the first round. At the quarter-final stage a Tommy Mutton goal 12 seconds after the kick-off gave us a rapid advantage over Porthmadog in the first leg played in heavy rain under the Deeside lights. The visitors equalised on the half-hour and took a 2-1 lead to Y Traeth when Aled Rowlands struck a 20-yard free-kick past Craig Bryan deep into added time. Two weeks later strikes from Nomads’ Andy Griffiths and Jamie Holmes countered a Mark Williams header so that the tie was level on aggregate at 3-3 with ten minutes left and extra-time looming. Up stepped Carl Owen to score twice in those ten minutes and dash our hopes of progress. Having kept TNS goalless in both legs of the League Cup tie early in the campaign it came as something of a shock when the Llansantffraid-based club came to Deeside on a November evening 14

The Nomads vs Bangor City


and hammered Nomads 0-7. Debutant goalkeeper Matthew Hogg probably still has nightmares about his one and only game for the Nomads as the eventual champions scored almost at will. We also lost 0-5 at TNS in the Welsh Cup to compound this misery. Another defeat followed (0-1 at Aberystwyth) before the season’s biggest crowd at the Stadium (just over 400) witnessed the local ‘derby’ with Rhyl. Craig Hutchinson scored the game’s first goal on 53 minutes and Nomads looked to be on their way to a first home league win of the season when a 25-yard rocket from Michael Keegan in the 87th minute gave the Lilywhites a deserved point. Just a week later, however, that elusive home victory arrived and in similar circumstances. Tommy Mutton scored from an acute angle two minutes into the game against Caersws but when Graham Evans levelled matters after 70 minutes it was no more than the visitors deserved. Deep into added time Nomads were awarded a free-kick and Stuart Rain was on hand at the far post to grab the winning goal. A trip to Airbus UK was on the cards next. The Wingmakers had won their very first WPL game against Newtown on the opening day of the season but had subsequently gained just a single point from the next dozen league matches and came in to the local tussle on the back of seven straight defeats in which they had conceded 20 goals and scored only two. So it was something of a surprise when Simon Andrews gave Airbus the lead but by half-time Nomads had taken firm control with goals from Rain (2) and Mutton. Airbus UK did little after the break to suggest a comeback until Richard Smart’s goal on 75 minutes galvanised them. For the third game in succession Nomads were involved in late drama as Steve Hughes made it 3-3 in injury time and two more valuable points were thrown away. Christmas brought no more cheer than in previous years with a 2-2 draw at Carmarthen and then a 2-4 defeat at Rhyl on 27th December. Ring-rusty after three weeks without a match, we entertained Porthmadog and gave a debut to striker Ryan Crawford. ‘Port’ were undefeated in seven games and took an early lead when Lee Webber found the back of Craig Bryan’s net. Andy Griffiths levelled before the interval and Crawford marked his debut with a goal on 76 minutes. As time ticked away Porthmadog put pressure on the home defence but marshalled by George Horan and Danny Jellicoe it stood firm and Crawford sealed the points with his second goal of the game. Further defeats away to Bangor City (0-2) and at home to Caernarfon Town (1-2) further dampened our spirits as this ‘yo-yo’ season continued. Cefn Druids were blown away for the second time as Crawford netted another brace of goals with others from Ben Heath and Stuart Rain to confirm a 4-0 success and from 0-2 down at home to Haverfordwest a week later Mutton and Rain salvaged a point inside the final quarter hour. Up one minute, down the next. March 2005 produced little in the way of cheer despite Nomads playing seven WPL games from which a miserable four points were accrued. Rain’s 11th goal of the season was enough to see off Welshpool Town but either side of that game we lost to Newtown, Cwmbran Town, Port Talbot Town, TNS and Aberystwyth Town scoring just a single goal. Tommy Mutton netted that against TNS making the scores level at 1-1 until Michael Wilde scored at the back post as Nomads screamed for an offside flag. Even the other point that month, a 1-1 draw at Caernarfon, was thanks to a Cofi own goal. The campaign drew to a close with wins at Caersws (2-1) and at home to Afan Lido (4-2) unsurprisingly followed by a home defeat at the hands of lowly Airbus UK. James Gambino scored his one and only WPL goal to give Nomads the lead on 80 minutes but two strikes in the dying embers of the game from our former ‘hitman’ Jamie Hughes took the points back to Broughton and enabled Airbus to squeeze up above the bottom two clubs in the final table. Connah’s Quay finished rather isolated in 12th position – nine points behind Porthmadog in 11th but seven ahead of Port Talbot Town. Home form had been poor with just four wins and ten losses.

BANGOR'S HISTORY

Organised football in Bangor dates from a meeting held in the city’s Magistrates' Rooms on 18 December 1876 – but not football as we might imagine because it was the handling variety that was first played in the city. It wasn’t until nearly a year later that it was decided to abandon rugby, to concentrate on association football, and to join the Football Association of Wales. The reason for the change of code? The number of players injured in that first experimental season! At that time, the club played at the Maes y Dref ground, at the lower end of Bangor’s High Street, and in the early years concentrated on playing challenge (friendly) fixtures and competing in the various cup competitions. Obviously, the club had no lack of ambition as on Easter Monday 1880, they took on the mighty Blackburn Rovers, giving a good account of themselves in a narrow 2 – 1 defeat. Nine years later, Bangor won the Welsh Cup for the first time, beating Northwich Victoria 2 – 1 at Wrexham before a crowd of 4,000, and in 189596 put on an even more impressive performance, beating north Wales giants Wrexham 3 – 0 at Llandudno to win football’s second-oldest cup competition for the second time. The Welsh Cup has been a favourite trophy of Bangor City over the years. City has won the trophy eight times – only Wrexham, Cardiff and Swansea have won it more often. Despite, or perhaps because of, City’s success in cup competitions, it became clear that the Maes y Dref ground was not up to standard, attracting complaints from visiting teams. At first for a trial period, and then permanently, the club reached an arrangement to move to the High Street ground, 18

The Nomads vs Bangor City

better known as Farrar Road, to share with the city’s cricket club. Shortly after the First World War, the cricket club found an alternative home, and Bangor City Football Club was to make Farrar Road its respected – some might say feared – home for the next ninety years and more. Eager to broaden its horizons and play against opposition of the highest possible level, in 1932 Bangor City was elected into the Birmingham and District League, then the Lancashire Combination and the Cheshire League. Of course there was no all-Wales league at that time and City’s outstanding successes still tended to come in cup competition, notably in 1962, when the team won the Welsh Cup. That Welsh Cup triumph led to one of the most famous episodes in the Club’s history, when, under the management of former Everton and Wales player TG Jones, City played the famous Italian team Napoli in the European Cup Winners’ Cup. Bangor thrilled their fans by winning 2 - 0 at home in the first leg. City lost 3-1 in Naples and finally went out after losing 2 – 1 in the playoff game at Arsenal’s famous Highbury stadium. As City fans never fail to mention, Bangor would have progressed in the competition had the away goals rule been in place at the time! Non-league football in England was re-organised in the late 1960s, a period which saw Bangor take a step up to become members of the Northern Premier League, and ten years later, founder members of the Alliance (now Conference) League. City’s first stint in the Alliance lasted only two years, as the club was relegated at the end of the 1980-81 season, but it bounced back straight away, winning the Northern Premier League, and promotion back to the Alliance, in 1981-82. At the end of the 1983-84


season, however, City were relegated back into the Northern Premier League. One of the highlights of City’s final ten years playing in the English footballing pyramid was an appearance at the ‘old’ Wembley stadium in the 1984 FA Trophy Final against Northwich – the first Welsh team to appear at the historic ground since Cardiff City in 1927. The match ended in a 1 – 1 draw, and Bangor, under the management of former Sunderland midfielder Dave Elliott, narrowly lost the replay, played at Stoke City’s ground. City also had their moment in the European spotlight during that period. Qualifying for the 1985/86 European Cup Winners’ Cup, and under the management of former Stoke City and Wales midfielder John Mahoney, City exceeded expectations by beating Norwegian team Fredrickstad on the away goals rule, then played Spanish giants Atletico Madrid, going out of the competition 0 – 3 on aggregate. Over 7,000 packed into Farrar Road for the home leg of that tie. In 1947, 1950 and 1972, the ambitious City had applied to join the English Football League (this in the days before automatic promotion from the Conference), but the fortunes of the club took a momentous turn in 1992, when it elected to join the new League of Wales, severing its historic links with the English system. After a slow start, Bangor won the League of Wales title in 1994 and 1995 under the management of Nigel Adkins (former manager of Scunthorpe United, Southampton, and Reading, now with Sheffield United) leading to more European exploits in Iceland and Poland.

1998 and 2000 saw further Welsh Cup victories, and these, along with high League placings, led to further European campaigns in Finland, Sweden, Romania, Yugoslavia and Latvia. Consistent success however was hard to find, but this changed with the appointment of former City player Neville Powell as manager in May 2007. In his first three seasons, Nev guided Bangor to a hat-trick of Welsh Cup wins and European qualification. In 2011 he won Bangor City’s first league championship since the Adkins era of the mid-1990s. Away from the playing side, protracted negotiations between the club, councils and developers led to Bangor City leaving the much-loved Farrar Road ground in late 2012 and moving to a new purpose-built stadium at Nantporth, on the banks of the Menai Straits. Immediately popular due to its excellent playing surface and facilities, the stadium has become the venue of choice for representative matches in North West Wales.
