BANGOR City FC have launched a social media initiative to help the community during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Citizens’ enjoyed something of a renaissance before the domestic football fixture suspension, and the #BangorSpirit campaign has been implemented with a view to getting people in the city talking and offering support to one another.

This is the latest good will gesture from the JD Cymru North side since the social distancing measures were implemented, with City president Domenico Serafino donating £5,000 to Ysbyty Gwynedd to help them in their fight against Covid-19.

#BangorSpirit is targeted to be a point of connection where the community can come together and show through helping each other out we really are stronger.

A Bangor City spokesman, said: “Using the hashtag people can appeal for help and others offering services can also let the public know where they can get it.

“Many people are doing wonderful things for the community at such a difficult time and this is also a place where that can be recognised.

“We would like to invite the public to use the hashtag to highlight the amazing work that is being done by individuals whether they are doctors, nurses, charity workers or others who are providing vital services.”

The new regime is keen to build community presence that was severely fractured during the previous ownership, which resulted in the formation of a new fan-owned club in the city, Bangor 1876.

They have ridden on the crest of a wave from a playing perspective before the domestic fixture suspension, surging them up to fifth in the standings and with a realistic opportunity of a top-four finish under World Cup winner Pedro Pasculli.
