BANGOR City player-manager Gary Taylor-Fletcher was full of praise for young stars Sam Jones and Alex Boss following their 5-0 home win over Denbigh Town.

A sensational second half display proved to be the catalyst behind their success as the Citizens kept up the pressure on long-time Huws Gray Alliance leaders Airbus Broughton, who came from behind to win at Ruthin Town.

City have another good chance to pick up three points when they travel to Holyhead Hotspur on Friday (7.30pm), with the Wingmakers’ making the trip to in-form Gresford Athletic.

Taylor-Fletcher, said: “Like last week, it was a totally professional performance. We had a job to do and in the end it could have been a lot more.

“The last home game didn’t go to plan, so we needed to be better and thankfully we were.

“I thought Sam (Jones) and Alex (Boss) were both outstanding and the way they looked in training it was the right time to give them a start. I told them before the game that they deserved the chance and they were magnificent.

“I look at this group and it really is a great bunch of lads who all try and help each other and I could see we set our stall out on how we want to play and that is what I want.

“I’ve said we can only do what we want to achieve and not look at anyone else and take each game as it comes.”

The home side had to withstand some heavy pressure from Dewi Llion and Matthew Jones’ side in the opening exchanges, but they weathered the storm and opened the scoring on 21 minutes courtesy of a header from Mike Williams.

After the break saw the hosts double their tally on 63 minutes when Boss prodded home a rebound, and they all-but sealed their win thanks to a neat finish from Jones with 65 gone.

The same player was on hand to notch his second of the evening after 67 minutes thanks to superb work from Marc Williams, with second tier top scorer Alex Darlington rounding off the scoring in stoppage time.
