Bangor 1876 FC secured their first ever win with an impressive performance against Holywell Town at Treborth.


A crowd of over 300 turned up to watch 1876’s first home game after pre-season away games against FC United of Manchester and Chester. The game was played on the grass pitch at Treborth as the new 3G pitch and stands await completion.

Welsh Alliance League side Holywell started brightly but fell behind to a goal from close range midway through the half from new 1876 signing Dion Jones, who slotted home at the far post from a corner kick on 18‘.

Bangor acquitted themselves well against a physical Holywell side and could have added to their lead before half-time.

1876 did increase their lead on 47’ when Jamie Petrie fired home at the far post after Les Davies flicked on a Shaun Lock long throw from the right.

Petrie notched his 2nd of the game after controlling a long through ball to beat the oncoming Holywell goalkeeper for an easy tap-in.

The Wellmen scored a consolation goal through a Jacob Wise header on 78’ but it was too little too late for the visitors.

Final Score: Bangor 1876 3-1 Holywell Town
