BANGOR 1876 FC had their new ground inspected by the Football Association of Wales ahead of a decision regarding their tier placing.

The newly formed club welcomed officials from the country’s governing body on Monday, June 17, with a formal announcement on which league they will be plying their trade in expected to be officially confirmed on Wednesday.

They will be using the facility at Treborth, situated at Bangor University, for their fixtures for the considerable future, which is the latest exciting development for the fan-owned club that recently became a Supporters’ Trust.

The City of Bangor coat of arms will be adopted as the official club crest, which “reflects the club’s commitment to serve the local community, and preserve its proud footballing heritage, whilst engaging with supporters, the surrounding area and further afield”.

This, along with the new name for the club, was revealed last week, with a management team expected to be confirmed once a formal outcome has been reached with the FAW regarding their league placing.

The movement has received a significant amount of support from the community and comes as a direct result of large sections of the Bangor City fanbase becoming disillusioned with the direction of the Citizens’ under the ownership of VSM Management.

It promises to be a big week for football in Bangor, with City’s appeal regarding their 42-point deduction and relegation to Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One scheduled to take place on Tuesday.
