BANGOR City’s young squad turned in one of their finest performances of the season to secure a 2-1 home win over Flint Town United in their final home league fixture.

The Citizens’ fielded another inexperienced side against the Silkmen, who are aiming for a second-placed finish in the Huws Gray Alliance under talented manager Niall McGuinness.

The result leaves Gary Taylor-Fletcher’s men in fifth position in the standings ahead of their final league game at Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochant on Saturday (2.30pm), where they can leapfrog fierce rivals Rhyl and seal a fourth-placed finish.

Despite the eventual result, it was the visitors that started the brighter, and they went ahead on 12 minutes when prolific forward Mark Cadwallader made the most of the space afforded to him with a neat finish to break the deadlock.

Both sides missed chances throughout the remainder of the first period, with City presented with a golden opportunity to get back on level terms after the break on 55 minutes when they were awarded a penalty, which Robbie Parry converted in confident fashion.

Things got even better for the home side during a crucial stage of the contest, and once again it was Parry who proved to be the difference with another superb strike to put his side ahead for the first time.

The visitors threw everything at their opponents in the closing stages in search of a leveller, but the City rearguard managed to hold firm to seal a memorable three points against their high-flying opponents.
