CLWB Pêl-Droed Bangor 1876 Football Club have secured the services of another bright young prospect from the region to boost the squad.

The club are believed to have convinced talented forward Benn Lundstram to join their ranks for their first ever competitive season, which will see them compete in the Gwynedd League following a ruling from the Football Association of Wales.

Lundstram came through the Academy system at Bangor City and made a considerable impression during his time with the cub, both at U19 level and with the senior set-up in the Huws Gray Alliance.

He recently played a key role for Penmaenmawr Phoenix in Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division Two, where he played with father Mike after he joined midway through the season from Llanrwst United.

The hot prospect has reportedly turned down offers from Llangefni Town and Denbigh Town to join the club and link-up once again with a host of faces who were also part of the Citizens’ youth stricture.

He will also be learning from one of the most experienced strikers anywhere in the country in Les Davies, who spurned the opportunity to join Aberystwyth Town in favour of spearheading 1876’s promotion charge.

The move, which is set to be confirmed by the club in the coming days, is the latest boost to an ambitious fan-owned organisation that has made considerable strides throughout the summer.

New manager Mel Jones has wasted no time in making his presence felt at the helm, bringing in a good mix of youth and experience in the hope of hitting the ground running at the first opportunity.
