BANGOR 1876 enjoyed a fruitful Bank Holiday Weekend with a pair of impressive victories.

The newly formed club extended their perfect start to the Gwynedd League campaign thanks to a 3-1 home success over Nefyn United at their Treborth base on Saturday, and they followed this up with an outstanding 5-0 rout at Llangoed two days later.

This makes it four wins from as many league games for Mel Jones’ side, who have made a considerable impact throughout the community since their inception.

Monday’s clash saw them go ahead on 44 minutes when vastly experienced forward Les Davies turned in an effort from close range, and they doubled their advantage soon after the break when Jamie Petrie successfully converted from the penalty spot.

The in-form Petrie secured his brace on 74 minutes following another period of extended pressure from the visitors, and they put the exclamation point on proceedings late on when Petrie attained his hat-trick and Leon Owens rounded off the scoring.

This followed on from 1876’s hard-fought weekend triumph in front of more than 400 supporters, and they went behind for the first ever time in the league when Carl Jones fired United ahead with 13 on the clock.

Their joy proved to be short-lived as Petrie despatched a leveller from the spot on the quarter hour mark, and Jones’ side took a slender cushion into the half-time break when a Davies delivery was met by the head of Petrie for his second of the contest.

With momentum now fully with the home side, they took full advantage and pulled clear midway through the half when Davies demonstrated his class with a fine effort from a narrow angle to round off the scoring.

The two victories leaves 1876 in second position and six points behind Trearddur Bay Bulls with two games in hand.
