BANGOR City’s FAW Tier 2 North League status has been thrown into doubt once again after they were hit with another charge.

The Citizens’ have been accused of fielding an ineligible player for their game against Prestatyn Town on March 22, and any sanctions imposed on the club could see them relegated from the second tier.

This comes just a fortnight after the club saw their 42-point deduction halved by the Football Association of Wales following an appeal, which saw them avoid demotion on goal difference.

Any subsequent deduction for this latest accusation could mean a reprieve for Holywell Town, who have been left with more questions than answers throughout the summer which has hampered preparations for the new campaign considerably.

City are also in the midst of a transfer embargo that prevents them from signing players to professional contracts until the January transfer window.

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.

All of those players have now left the club for pastures new, with Vaughan Jnr and director of football Max Leghissa bringing in a host of new faces from the continent in a bid to “bring some stability” to the club going forward.
