BANGOR 1876 are making the necessary changes to their Treborth base to secure tier three status next season.

The runaway Gwynedd League leaders look set to be fast-tracked into Welsh domestic football’s third-tier, with new Football Association of Wales regulations set to change the landscape of the game in North Wales and relegate many clubs unable to meet the requirements.

This would leave tier three with a significant shortfall, and Bangor 1876 have been shortlisted as a team that could fill the void.

They are receiving financial investment from Bangor University to make their dreams a reality, with a number of other prominent sponsors from the region also lending their support.

If the fan-owned club can get all the necessary changes made to the facility in time, things look good for 1876’s chances of bypassing the fourth tier.

The latest development will see a public address system installed at their ground, which is another stage of their action plan to meet new FAW regulations and the work could be completed during the suspension of fixtures due to coronavirus, if social distancing guidelines are followed.

A Bangor 1876 spokesman, said: “The new PA system will allow us to provide a better match-day experience with music, interviews and announcements.

“Thanks to Sam and Richard from Bangor University, Gwyn Hughes from MAD and Dewi Thomas from Owen and Palmer for their assistance with this project.

“We will be providing updates as to the progress of implementing the Action Plan over the next few weeks.”

This is the latest exciting development for the ambitious set-up, who have come on leaps and bounds during their first competitive campaign.

They have yet to drop a league point so far this season and Mel Jones’ men also took a number of higher-league scalps during cup runs.
