Bangor’s newest football club will compete in the tier five Gwynedd League next season.
Clwb Pêl-Droed Bangor 1876 Football Club’s admission into the Welsh football pyramid was confirmed by the Football Association of Wales today.
The Supporters’ Trust, in conjunction with CPD Bangor 1876 FC, have been in close contact with the FAW and have provided information and documentation which allowed the Cardiff-based governing body to reach its decision.
Einion Williams, on behalf of the Supporters’ Trust, said: “This is excellent news for everybody connected with the Supporters’ Trust, CPD Bangor 1876 FC and especially its supporters.
” I am delighted for everyone involved and would especially like to thank the FAW for their co-operation during the application process. I would also like to record my gratitude to the Supporters’ Trust committee for all their hard work over the past few weeks and months.
“The FAW decision allows the club the opportunity to build a solid base for a supporter-owned, inclusive and family friendly club to serve the City of Bangor and the wider community.
“Our goal is to provide a club that will provide opportunity to the footballing talent in the area and a club that the community can be genuinely proud to be involved with and support.”
“The challenge ahead is one we are very much looking forward to and we now have clarity and certainty over the club’s position following the FAW’s ruling.”
BCFCSA voted in favour of forming a new club as an “insurance policy” in May.
Fans have been concerned with how three-time Welsh Premier champions Bangor City are being run.
Bangor City points deduction saga drags on
Bangor City’s appeal hearing against a 42-point deduction ruling has been adjourned until June 24.
City were issued with multiple charges for alleged breaches of FAW Rules.
The 42 points penalty, the total recorded by the club during the 2018-19 Huws Gray Alliance campaign, would see them relegated to the Welsh Alliance.
The Citizens were demoted from the Welsh Premier League at the end of 2017-18 after being refused a domestic licence.
They have since avoided a second winding-up order over unpaid tax and further off field problems saw the club request assistance in January 2019 after having its electrical and water supplies turned off by creditors.
