A MIDFIELDER for CPD Bangor 1876 FC has retired from football due to work and family commitments.

Dylan Williams, born in Bangor, had been part of the club since it first formed in 2019, joining following a spell with Glantraeth.

He is part of a select group of players to have represented the club in all four of the leagues it has played in, as well as many different cup competitions.

Bangor 1876 manager, Michael Johnston, praised Dylan’s contribution to the club during the last four-and-a-half years.

“Dyl has been with us since day one,” he said.

“He has been brilliant for us on and off the pitch. He’s a special player and has the ability to change a game as he has done many a time for us.

“We knew this year would be a struggle with a new job and family but I know, if he did want to play somewhere else, he would be a huge asset to anyone. Thanks for everything, Dyl.”

A club statement added: “We would like to echo those sentiments and wish Dylan Williams all the best for the future.

“We are grateful to him for his efforts in our colours.”
