BANGOR City returned to on-the-field matters with a 6-0 pre-season victory at Llandudno Albion.

The Citizens made light of work of their friendly fixture against the third-tier title contenders, with City arranging the fixture at short notice after their Nathaniel MG Cup fixture against Conwy Borough was postponed by the Football Association of Wales amid the club’s ongoing charge and appeal process.

The visitors made a strong start to proceedings and went ahead early on when Neto hit the target, and the same player was on hand to double their tally just before the break thanks to a fine solo run and finish.

After the break saw City go three goals to the good shortly following the restart, and Stephen Vaughan Jr’s men added a fourth soon after when Emmanuel Agyemang continued his excellent pre-season form with another well-taken finish midway through the half.

Credit to the home side, they kept plugging away in the face of stern competition, but they were undone again late on when Azizou Zoumbare broke clear and turned in a chance for City’s fifth.

The hosts put the exclamation point on proceedings in the closing stages thanks to a strike from Francesco Leghissa to round off the scoring.

Prior to the contest, a minute’s silence was impeccably observed in member of Citizens’ president and chairman Gwyn Pierce Owen, who died last week.

Vaughan Jr’s side are due to start their JD Cymru North campaign at Colwyn Bay this Friday, but the tie could now be seriously in doubt given the uncertainty surrounding the formal outcome of both their appeal and the additional charge given to them by the FAW for allegedly fielding an unregistered player against Prestatyn Town last term.
