CLWB Pel Droed Bangor 1876 picked up their historic first win at their Treborth base thanks to a 3-1 triumph over Holywell Town.

Hundreds of supporters took in the friendly fixture, which was the fan-owned club’s first game on home soil, and they turned in an impressive display against a side that boast plenty of experience operating in the second tier prior to their relegation last term.

Mel Jones’ side began the game on the front foot and almost went ahead early on when a Jamie Petrie narrowly missed the target on 12 minutes, but the home side did manage to break the deadlock soon after when recent signing Dion Jones turned in a rebound following a Dylan Summers-Jones volley with 18 on the clock.

Talented teenager Benn Lundstram was looking lively and had a pair of efforts saved midway through the half, with the Wellmen also growing into the game without creating anything of note.

After the break saw the hosts waste no time in extending their cushion when a Shaun Lock long throw was met by the head of Les Davies, who flicked into the path of Petrie at the far post on 47 minutes.

Things got even better for the phoenix club on 55 minutes when a long ball sent Petrie through on goal, and his impressive overall contribution was rewarded with a neat finish past Mike Platt to all-but seal the win and secure his second of the afternoon.

Credit to Johnny Haseldin’s men, they continue to ask questions of the home rearguard and finally got themselves on the score sheet with 78 gone thanks to a Jacob Rose header from a corner.

Lundstram was denied late on thanks to a sensational save from Platt, who turned away a free kick in fine style after Cameron Barry had been felled just outside the box.
