A SECTION of Bangor City supporters have decided to form their own club following a vote last week.

Following an emergency general meeting between the Bangor City Supporters’ Association on Wednesday, April 10, where it was decided a new football club will be formed “as insurance” against what they consider to be the real threat to top level football being played in the city.

The association, who will also be shifting to a Supporters’ Trust as a result of the meeting, stated they have reached a provisional agreement to ply their trade at a Tiuer 3 compliant ground in the Bangor area,

A statement from the group, read: “The present structure of Bangor City FC is unsustainable.

“Information in the public domain shows that liquidation continues to be a risk. The licence failure, demotion and raft of unpaid bills have led to falling crowds and an atmosphere of mistrust.

“To make matters worse there also appears to be a culture of denial and secrecy rather than a coherent plan to rectify the situation. An open letter to the club from the Association has neither been formally acknowledged or responded to.”

The Supporters’ Association committee have been liaising with Football Association of Wales in preparation for the move, which includes an approach to a “well-respected” management team from the region to start their new era.

“We will now ensure that new club is registered with the FAW before a deadline of June 1,” added the spokesman.

“The hope is that the decision will allow the fans, local community and businesses to develop a mutually respectful partnership that re-energises the football community of the city and local area.

“We want fans to reconnect with each other and restore the pride and feeling of being a supporter of our historic club.

“The new club is a creative and positive solution for an ever-changing and precarious situation. We are not disowning Bangor City FC or its history, the club is ours, it belongs to the fans and local community.”
