Billy Palmer

Bangor FC has appointed former director Billy Palmer as the new club president.

Billy succeeds the previous president Gifford McConkey, who sadly died during the past year and is greatly missed.

Billy, a Bangor fan since his school days, was appointed as a board member in 1989, a post he served for over 28 years. Billy has also been involved in many roles with the club as a supporter, committee member and volunteer. Although, many Bangor fans will know Billy from his role on the turnstiles, where he would greet fans with his genial enthusiasm and dry wit every match day.

Billy Palmer said: "I am really pleased to have been appointed as the Bangor FC president. It is an honour for me and I am delighted for me and my family. It is the pinnacle of my career at the football club."

Bangor FC chairman Nicky Davidson said: "Billy's loyalty, commitment and dedication to Bangor FC over the past decades have earned him the highest respect from his colleagues, peers and many friends at the club.

"Billy is a hugely popular figure at the club and his appointment as president is reward for the time and effort he has put in as a fan, volunteer and member of the board. We all congratulate Billy on becoming president, the highest position to hold at Bangor FC."

Club News

Bangor FC will postpone the introduction of a reserve team until 2018/19 season.

The decision was made following discussions between the Bangor FC board and management team. Bangor FC chairman Nicky Davidson said: "We have decided to postpone a reserve team until next season. This is because of financial restrictions we've encountered since taking charge, coupled with player issues. Many of our U20s had already departed the club before we had even arrived."

"Hugh and his management team agree that we need to be focussing on first team issues to ensure we only spend one season in the Ballymena Intermediate League. However, we plan to introduce a reserve team from 2018/19."

Nicky concluded: "Thank you to everyone who took the time and effort to apply for the reserve team manager position. We appreciate the application and will keep it on file until next season."
