NORTH WALES COAST WEST LEAGUE REPORTS – SATURDAY, OCTOBER 9
Bangor 1876 6 Gwalchmai 0
Report: Dr Jonathan Ervine
North Wales Coast West Premier Division leaders Bangor 1876 could face one of their toughest tests of the season this Saturday when they travel to Penrhyndeudraeth.
The match at Maes-y-Parc will see the fan-owned club renew acquaintances with former player and director of football Iwan Williams, who this season became Penrhyn’s manager.
1876 stretched their perfect league record to 10 straight wins last weekend with a 6-0 home thrashing of Gwalchmai, the result putting the Treborth club top of the table on goal difference.
Penrhyn have started the campaign pretty well themselves, winning seven out of eight with their only loss a bizarre 7-0 midweek reverse at Llanberis.
Last Saturday saw Bangor put in a lively performance against a Gwalchmai outfit they had beaten 4-0 away in August.
The deadlock was broken in the 18th minute. Following a corner kick on the right, the ball fell to Les Davies on the edge of the area. After taking a touch to control the ball, he unleashed a powerful shot to put 1876 a goal up.
Corey Jones came close to scoring for the fourth game in a row before the interval but his diving header from a Dylan Williams cross was well saved by Konner Druce in goal for Gwalchmai.
1876’s quick start to the first half was mirrored by the way they began the second period.
They doubled their advantage within five minutes of the restart after full back Joe Culshaw broke into the left side of the penalty area before cutting inside and firing home with a rocket shot.
In the 56th minute, a third goal arrived after the ball was worked across the field to Luke Steele, who side-footed home from the edge of the penalty area.
Five minutes later, Steele was tripped breaking into the box which gave Davies an opportunity from the penalty spot. He made no mistake, sending the goalkeeper the wrong way.
Dylan Williams managed to add a fifth goal in the 72nd minute after a through ball from substitute Ben Owen.
Williams grabbed his second with the last kick of the game as he finished well from close range.
