Bangor City celebrated one of the greatest days in their history on 12 May 1984 when they played at Wembley against Northwich Victoria in the final of FA Trophy.

Thousands of Bangor City fans descended on Wembley for the game which finished 1–1, with local boy Paul Whelan scoring for Bangor.

The replay was played at Stoke City’s old Victoria Ground, and despite a goal from another Bangor lad – Phil Lunn – the Citizens lost 2–1, conceding in the last minutes.
