BANGOR City rounded off another eventful Huws Gray Alliance campaign with a 2-2 draw at Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochant.

The Citizens ensured they finished above fierce rivals Rhyl on goal difference in fourth spot in a season that promised much before a host of senior squad members departed amid the recent financial turmoil at the club.

This resulted in a wealth of Academy prospects being drafted into the senior set-up by manager Gary Taylor-Fetcher, and they acquitted themselves extremely well in the face of more experienced opposition.

An even opening saw little in the way of chances until player-manager Marc Griffiths put the home side ahead with a well-taken effort on 18 minutes.

This was met by a strong response from the visitors, who missed a flurry of chances throughout the remainder of the first period which included an audacious chip from Taylor-Fletcher that sailed narrowly over.

After the break saw the away side get themselves back into the contest on 50 minutes when some fine approach play from Taylor-Fletcher presented a chance to Gethin Thomas, who made no mistake with the finish to level matters.

The same player also went close soon after with an attempt that was deflected wide following good work from Alex Boss and Robbie Parry, with Llan also dangerous at the other end thanks to a series of probing crosses that were well dealt with by the Citizens’ rearguard.

City got their noses in front for the first time on 64 minutes when a teasing delivery from Jordan Piggott was headed into the net by Taylor-Fletcher, but they were undone once again at the other end by Griffiths, who put away another chance with 69 on the clock.

A stunning last ditch tackle from Piggott thwarted another promising attack from the home side late on to ensure both sides had something to show from an entertaining affair.
