Bangor City have announced that several players have left the club today. The player departures follow the news on Tuesday that the club are without electricity and water after utility bills of £25,000 were unpaid.
The club also announced on Tuesday they owe £80,000 to creditors, which includes unpaid players’ wages.
The players leaving today have been confirmed as Marc Williams (Aberystwyth), Yalany Baio, Anthony Stephens and Sam Dool who are understood to have joined Welsh Premier teams.
Sam Barnes joined Newtown earlier this week, Jake Phillips has returned to Connah’s Quay Nomads bringing an end to his loan spell at Bangor. Top scorer Alex Darlington signed for FC Mosta of Malta last week, with local hero Les Davies joining Llandudno earlier this month.
A club statement released on Tuesday read: “On Monday morning Bangor City Football Club was issued with a £16,000 demand for electricity. This led to its disconnection.
“This was followed by a water rates demand of £9,000 the same day which has now also been turned off. The Football Club is responsible to pay this bill.
“Negotiations are in place to get both bills settled and brought up to date as soon as possible.
“We are still waiting on funds being released from the FAW which has also hindered our cashflow.
“Bangor City’s creditors list is approximately £80,000 in its entirety. This includes bringing players and staff wages up to date as well as paying compensation to our former groundsman.
“The club has been in negotiations with investors and sponsors for the past two months and are very close to securing a new stadium sponsor.
“The Football Club will be requesting its shareholders to assist with the current financial situation and the club endeavours to get ready for Saturday’s league fixture v Gresford FC.“
The club also announced that Sam Jones had agreed a new and improved deal with the Citizens.
