Details of the Gwynedd Football League fixtures for August have been released as Bangor’s new fan owned club – Bangor 1876 – begin their inaugural league campaign.
Members of Bangor City Football Club Supporters’ Association held a meeting in April, concerned about the future of their club, and voted overwhelmingly to start a new football club. Relationships between the Supporters’ Association and the owners of Bangor City, Vaughan Sports Management, had become increasingly strained last season as the off-field problems at the club intensified.
Bangor 1876 will play their home games on the new 3G facility at Treborth, which is owned by Bangor University.
After an eventful few weeks, the club have enjoyed their first ever game at fellow fan owned club FC United of Manchester followed by a game against Chester. 1876 soon recorded their first win beating Holywell 3-1 last weekend followed by a hard-earned 2-1 victory at Cymru North side Gresford.
1876 start their Gwynedd League campaign on Saturday, 10 August, with a visit to the newly-named Ogwen Tigers (formerly Mynydd Tigers) who now play at Bethesda Rugby Club.
Following the FAW Trophy tie at home to CPD Sychdyn the following Saturday, 17 August, Bangor 1876 will host Caergybi FC at Treborth on Monday, 19 August.
An August Bank Holiday double-header starts at Treborth on Saturday, 24 August, when Nefyn United will be the visitors. Bangor 1876 will be at home once more on the Bank Holiday Monday (26 August) when CPD Llangoed FC are the visitors.
The August schedule is rounded off with the JD Welsh Cup First Qualifying Round tie with Llandudno Athletic FC the visitors to Bangor University’s Treborth Playing Fields on Saturday, 31 August.
