7 Match Report
WP U19 DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE 14 October 2018

The New Saints 4 v 1 Bangor City

  Bangor were beaten by a slick Saints side at Park Hall but could bemoan their luck after failing to capitalise on their first half chances.
  And the defeat felt all the worse when midfielder Gethin Thomas was helped off in the second period with what turned out to be a dislocated collar bone.
  The home side took the lead inside ten minutes through James Rutter but City fought back midway through the half when first teamer Sam Dool beat the keeper from a freekick.
  The rest of the first half was fairly evenly contested with City creating chances they could not quite convert so the half time score stood at one all.


Half Time
The New Saints 1 v 1 Bangor City
  No changes at the interval for City.
  But the second half belonged to The Saints who scored three without replay to run out convincing winners.
  Ten minutes after the restart Brickfield Rangers' Harley Steel put the home side ahead with a powerful strike and a further ten minutes or so on it was three one thanks to James Parry who converted a penalty after a foul on James Rutter. Parry was the Guilsfield leftback against City earlier in the CA season.
  Sadly this incident saw Gethin Thomas leave the field through injury.
  In the closing three minutes Tai Jones added a fourth from Finley Jeffries cross to leave the young blues well beaten at the final whistle.
 So a damaging defeat, all the more so with young midfielder Thomas set to be out for six weeks.

6 Match Report
THE FAW YOUTH CUP 6 October 2018

Bangor City 6 v 2 Conwy Borough

  Bangor cruised through to the second round of the Welsh Youth Cup but had to come from behind to beat local rivals Conwy Borough.
  With Sam Jones having played 120 minutes for the first team at Prestatyn the previous day City paired Dylan Summers Jones and Benn Lundstram upfront. Jones marked his first team appearance with a brace of goals but his replacements held their heads up with five of the six goals scored against Borough..
  Visitors Conwy took an early lead through Ant Gustafson but City soon drew level through Dylan Summers Jones who latched onto a rebound following Benn Lundstram's initial effort to lash into the top corner.
  City went ahead when goalscorer Summers-Jones threaded the ball through for Benn Lundstram who drove home left footed for a two one advantage.
  And the lead went up to three one before the interval as Lundstram pulled the ball back to Gethin Thomas whose shot from the edge of the box nestled in the back of the net.
  So a three one advantage for the young blues at the break.

Half Time
Bangor City 3 v 1 Conwy Borough
  No changes at the interval.
  But as in the first half it was Conwy who scored first to cut the deficit through Jamie Baker to a single goal at three two.
  That was as close as they got though as City took command in the second period.
  First Benn Lundstram got his second of the game as he volleyed home from Summers-Jones' cross for a four two advantage.
  It was five two when Summers-Jones saw his shot saved and Benn Lundstram was on hand to complete his hatrick and put the tie beyond doubt.
  And the final goal of the day belonged to Dylan Summers Jones who ran through on goal but saw his effort saved by the busy Borough glovesman. The loose ball was collected by Leon Buckland who teed up the young striker to net his second of the game.
  So a conclusive win for the young blues and a place in the second round draw.

Bala Town 3 v 2 Bangor City

  Bangor tasted defeat for the first time this season at Maes Tegid after the home side built up a two goal advantage that City could not quite overhaul.
  Bala took the lead through Delwyn Jones and doubled their advantage thanks to Josh Jones.
  Having given them selves a mountain to climb City halved the deficit as Gethin Thomas scored for the match in succession.
  But hopes of parity at the interval were shattered when Ruthin Town youngster Tom Watkin Jones restored the home sides two goal advantage to send Bala in three on ahead at the half time interval.


Half Time
Bala Town 3 v 1 Bangor City
  One change at the interval for City as Caio Hughes replaced Steff Taylor.
  With an early change City pushed hard to get back in the game and were rewarded when a Bala defender turned the ball into his own net.
  On 65 minutes Benn Lundstram came on for Dylan Summers Jones but despite enjoying the lions share of the second half City could not find an equaliser.
  So a first reverse of the season for the young blues but still a promising performance and a positive start to the season so far.

Bangor City 4 v 3 Connahs Quay

  Bangor snatched a last gasp winner to take the points against a Nomads side who had fought back from three one down late in the second half.
  Both sides forged but largely wasted chances in the opening quarter with Eric Green marginally the busier of the two goalkeepers.
  The opening Bangor goal came in the 21st minute when
Dylan Summers Jones
pounced as the ball bounced around the visitors goalmouth.
  But within a minute Nomads first teamer Nathan Woolfe equalised with a clean strike from ten yards out. All square midway through the half.
  Cameron Ramsay was causing the blues defence some difficult moments but minutes before the interval Bangor regained the lead. Gethin Thomas got behind the Nomads defence to pull the ball back for midfielder Gethin Thomas to guide the ball beyond Green.
  Former New Saints midfielder Joey Sullivan went close before the whistle blew but when it did City still led two one.

Half Time
Bangor City 2 v 1 Connahs Quay
  No changes at the interval for City.
  Again both sides created chnances but both goalkeepers were up to the task.
  Moments after City had struck the crossbar Gaerwen youngster Dylan Summers-Jones put Bangor three one up on 71 minutes with the points seemingly in the bag.
  The visitors had other ideas though and a foul on Jacob Barratt resulted in a penalty to the Nomads which the experienced Nathan Woolfe duly converted to halve the deficit.
  And within a minute of having won that penalty Jacob Barratt scored himself to bring the visitors level at three all with the best part of twenty minutes to play.
  With both sides determined to win rather than draw the game became fast and very open, both goals came under threat, but at the very last City won it thanks to Stef Taylor who netted his first goal of the season.
  There was no time for Connahs Quay to respond and the final whistle blew on a narrow but welcome win for the young blues over one of their chief rivals in the Development League North.
  And for the first time without Sam Jones scoring!

Bangor City 3 v 3 Airbus UK

  Bangor were held by visitors Airbus but the young blues might feel they did enough to win the game over the ninety minutes.
 
With Sam Ashworth involved at centreback and Kian Owen at leftback there was first team experience in the Bangor defence.
  The visitors had the ball in the net inside two minutes but an offside flag halted the celebrations. But on seven minutes a strike was allowed as Sam Jones put Bangor ahead with a clean shot. There was a stoppage next as Josh Wright needed treatment by the Planemakers physio.
  Sam Jones and Alex threatened for City before on 19 minutes Oliver Lanceley pounced on some sloppy defending to race clear and beat Gruff Evans for an equaliser. A couple of minutes later Josh Wright was forced off through injury with Toby Vickery taking his place.
  A minute later Alex Boss prodded the ball home in a congested goalmouth to put City ahead once more.
  With ten minutes left on the clock Kai Hardcastle raced on goal and chipped Gruff Evans to level the scores once more.
  But City were soon in front again as Sam Jones headed home from Kian Owen's inviting cross and that was how the scores stood at the interval.


Half Time
Bangor City 3 v 2 Airbus UK
  No changes at the interval for City.
  But no sooner had the second half got underway than some defensive indecision resulted in a penalty for The Planemakers which captain Harvey Ellis converted confidently.
  The dangerous Lanceley raced on goal again but Gruff Evans rushed out to clear. Twenty minutes i and a change for Airbus as George Peers came on for goalscorer Hardcastle.
  With thirteen minutes left to play Sam Jones showed great technique to control and volley on target but the Airbus keeper was up to the task.
  Ten minutes left and loud penalty claims for Bangor but nothing doing.
  Bangor pressed hard for a late winner but it was not to be and the final whistle blew on a three all draw between two of the Development League's more consistent performers in recent seasons.
  Next up for City the visit of Connahs Quay to Nantporth on Sunday afternoon.

Caernarfon Town 3 v 6 Bangor City

  Bangor continued their fine start to the new campaign with another free scoring display. And like the first team a few days earlier, this involved a fightback after falling behind.
 
And the man of the match once more for Bangor was Sam Jones who followed up his hatrick last time out with four more goals.
  The match was played at Bethesda's Maes Meurig ground and it was the home side who took the lead through Jordan Pritchard.
  On 27 minutes Sam Jones levelled for Bangor and six minutes later added his second of the afternoon to put City ahead.
  Three minutes before the interval the young blues doubled their advantage as Dylan Summers-Jones made it three one which is how it stood as the referee signalled the end of the half.


Half Time
Caernarfon Town 1 v 3 Bangor City
  No changes at the interval for City.
  Ten minutes after the restart Sam Jones secured his hatrick to put the young blues four one ahead.
  And on the hour mark Cian Williams made it five one and apparently done and dusted. City made a first change as Caio Hughes came on for Steff Taylor.
  But the young Canaries had other ideas as Kieron Freeman Jones and then Adrian Roberts scored to make the score five three and give The Oval side reason to hope. City sent on Gethin Williams for Marcus Banks.
  Thankfully from a Bangor point of view Sam Jones had other ideas and with five minutes left of the ninety he made it six three to round off the scoring and make sure the points belonged to Bangor.
  He was promptly taken off with Benn Lundstram trotting on for the closing minutes.
  Another good win for Bangor and more to the tally but not without a fright or two along the way.

Newtown 0 v 4 Bangor City

  Bangor got the new U19s campaign off to a positive start with a thumping four one win of Newtown.
 
The young citizens had a Sam Jones hatrick to thank for the scoreline but this was a fine all round team performance.
  The Bangor side boasted a handful of last season's side including defenders Louis MacFarlane and Sam Ashworth plus leading goalscorer Jones. Newtown played first teamer Tom Goodwin to bolster the young Robins.
  But it was Sam Jones who put Bangor ahead on twenty minutes for his first of the season.
  And that was the only goal to seperate the two sides at the interval.


Half Time
Newtown 0 v 0 Bangor City
  No changes at the interval for City.
  On the hour mark Sam Jones netted his second to double the lead.
  Three minutes later it was three nil to Bangor as sixteen year old striker
Benn Lundstram scored his first for the U19s. Benn is the son of well known local striker Mike Lundstram.
  And ten minutes from time City capped a fine performance with a fourth and a hatrick for Sam Jones who has also made his CA debut for the first team in the previous fewdays.
  So a good start for the young blues on the Latham Park 3G.
