A WONDER strike from Bangor City teenager Sam Jones gave Ynys Mon a 2-1 friendly win at Llandudno.

Campbell Harrison’s side turned in a very encouraging performance against JD Welsh Premier League opposition, which was their first official encounter as preparations gather pace for this summer’s Inter-Games Tournament.

Despite the eventual result it was the home side that drew first blood when Alun Webb latched on to a through ball to fire past Porthmadog’s Paul Pritchard.

This provoked a strong response from the visitors, who spurned good chances during the remainder of the first period when Jay Gibbs, Ryan Taylor and Steven Whittaker all went close.

Things changed dramatically in the second half and they levelled matters soon after the restart when some brilliant individual work from Gibbs set up Holyhead Hotspur forward John Littlemore, who made no mistake with the finish.

Citizens’ starlet Jones then took centre stage with what proved to be the game-winner, picking the ball up on the right hand side and unleashing an audacious half volley that caught the goalkeeper off guard and flew into the top corner.

They managed to see out the remainder of the game and seal their success, which can give Harrison and his management team a broader indication of who is going to make the squad later this year.
