BANGOR City will take their appeal regarding a mammoth 42-point deduction to the Football Association of Wales later this month.

The Chronicle understands that a date has been set in relation to the matter, with Citizens’ officials set for a showdown with FAW chiefs on Tuesday, June 18.

The governing body released a lengthy statement regarding multiple charges that were issued against the club, with the points tally taken off their recently concluded Huws Gray Alliance campaign.

This new points tally would see them relegated from the second tier as a result of the FAW panel ruling, which would be the second straight campaign that the club would be demoted in relation to off-the-field issues.

Any decision will also have an impact on Holywell Town, who may receive a reprieve on their relegation should the appeal be rejected.

A Bangor City statement at the time the decision was announced, read: “The punishment that has been issued is severely harsh and not in keeping with previous punishments for similar issues.

“This decision will be appealed - not just in the interests of Bangor City but for every other club within Welsh football who currently are doing the same thing.”

It was been a difficult time for the Citizens, who were relegated from the JD Welsh Premier League despite a second placed finish and securing European qualification, due to a failure to obtain an FAW Domestic Licence.

Debts of £80,000 were revealed by the club in January after their EuroGold Stadium was closed briefly as a result of a failure to pay a water and electric bill, shortly before Stephen Vaughan Jnr returned to the fold behind the scenes as chairman.

A host of senior squad members departed during the January transfer window, with then-boss Gary Taylor-Fletcher forced to play a host of Academy prospects for the remainder of the campaign.

Much worse was to follow at the close of the season, with Taylor-Fletcher leaving his post and the FAW imposing a transfer embargo that prevents them from signing professional players until December 31.
