CONWY Borough picked up another positive result to start the JD Cymru North campaign with a 0-0 home draw against Bangor City.

The Tangerines were at their resolute best to keep the high-profile Citizens’ from returning to competitive action with a win, and things do not get any easier for Warren Gibbs’ side this week with two important fixtures in the coming days.

They begin with a tricky looking trip to title contenders Flint Town United on Tuesday evening, before welcoming newly promoted Llangefni Town to Y Morfa on Saturday (2.30pm).

A cagey opening to the contest saw City striker Ashley Ruane booked for protesting a penalty appeal to the dislike of the referee, with a superb Corrig McGonigle delivery narrowly evading the head of Sean McCaffrey at the other end.

The competitive affair saw plenty of robust challenges from both sets of players that resulted in yellow cards for Rob Jones and Francesco Serafino, but despite both sides enjoying large portions of possession after the interval neither were able to create a significant chance of note to ensure they shared the spoils on a sweltering day throughout the North Wales region.

The stalemate extends Borough’s unbeaten start to the season following their impressive opening day victory at Porthmadog, and there was further good news for the club after popular figure Rob Herd agreed to become the club’s new honorary president.

A club spokesman, said: “Rod has been at the club since 1992 and in recognition of his many years as a dedicated volunteer we felt it was fitting and long overdue to invite him to become an Honorary Club President.

“We are thrilled that Rod has accepted this invite and we look forward to working with him in the years to come, his hard work and sense of humour on matchdays is absolutely invaluable and is appreciated by all of us.”
