News

A much changed Bangor line-up lost out in a five goal thriller to a well equipped Sofia Farmer side at the Bangor Fuels Arena this afternoon. The Seasiders gave themselves a mountain to climb in the first half, falling behind to goals from Jesus and Correla.

The Seasiders managed to turn things round in the second half. A stunning strike from Kyle Woods (51' - Video coming soon!) and a cool finish from Mark Magennis (75') brought Bangor back on to level terms.

Bangor's joy proved to be short-lived, as Correla set up Jesus to slot home the winner in the 77th minute.

MAN OF THE MATCH: Kyle Woods

Bangor made it through to the quarter final stage of the Toals Steel & Sons Cup this afternoon with a 2-1 win over Albert Foundry at the Bangor Fuels Arena.

Both sides struggled with the blustery conditions in a largely uneventful first half. However, in the dying seconds of first half injury time, Keith Armstrong put the Seasiders ahead from the penalty spot after he had been tripped in the area.

Bangor's lead lasted just a couple of minutes into the second half - Foundry's Marcus Beattie smashed the ball home from the penalty spot.

Bangor conceded another penalty just before the hour mark, but this time Darren Gibbons managed to dive at full stretch to push the ball round the post and away to safety. The Seasiders were reduced to 10 men soon after when Jordan Lucas was given a straight red for a rash reaction to a tackle.

Despite being down to 10 men, Bangor took the lead in the 67th minute. Captain Andy Long found himself space behind the Foundry defence and made no mistake as he smashed the ball into the top corner from 15 yards.

Foundry pressed Bangor in the closing stages, but the Seasiders defence stood firm.

MAN OF THE MATCH: Dwaine Beattie - a fine second half performance.

NEXT FIXTURE:
Bangor v Sofia Farmer , Saturday 30th September, 2:00pm, Bangor Fuels Arena.

News Bangor recorded a 3-0 league win over Cookstown RBL at a rainy Beechway Playing Fields this afternoon.

The Seasiders dominated much of the first half, which saw both Niall Atkinson and Abby Sanusi go close from set pieces. The effervescent Gerard McMullan eventually opened the scoring for the Seasiders in the 25th minute with a headed goal from a deep Chris Getty cross.

Bangor doubled their lead early in the second half when an unfortunate Cookstown defender headed past his own keeper.

Bangor continued to press Cookstown throughout a second half which saw Niall Atkinson strike the Cookstown woodwork for a second time. Niall's hard work was rewarded in the 63rd minute when he made it 3-0 with a delightful lob from distance.

BangorFC.com Man of the Match: Sammy Devine - a commanding midfield performance.
