BANGOR 1876 have made another significant addition to their squad in the form of Lee McNulty.

The former Northern Ireland youth international is the latest big-name acquisition for the Gwynedd League title favourites, and his signing came after a chance meeting with manager Mel Jones at Ysgol Friars.

McNulty is currently on work placement at the school as part of his PGCE teaching qualification at Bangor University, and express a desire to join 1876 when Jones was invited to a pre-Christmas sports prize giving ceremony.

The defender boasts a wealth of experience and recently enjoyed a spell at Enniskillen in Northern Ireland’s second tier, with boss Ivan Sproule giving McNulty a glowing recommendation to 1876 prior to the transfer.

McNulty, a 25-year-old defender who is comfortable on the ball, was part of the national squad that competed at the Jersey Quadrangular last summer and joins an 1876 rear-guard that also consists of Michael Johnston.

They have conceded just nine times in 15 league outings so far this term and have scored an incredible 104 on their way to a 100 per cent record.
