ON THIS DAY 15 YEARS AGO: Gary Fitzpatrick and Marty Verner score for Marty Quinn's Bangor in a 2-1 away win over Ballymena United.


Tom Mathieson came off the bench to slot home a late winner for the Seasiders against league leaders Newington at Clandeboye Park this afternoon.

Bangor took the lead in the 17th minute when Ben Cushnie slotted home a rebound off the upright from a Ben Arthurs header. Newington were level in the 25th minute when Hughes struck home a penalty kick.

There was late drama when Newington crashed a shot off the Bangor crossbar and James Taylor denied a goalbound effort from Rice with an outstretched leg. In the 88th minute, Adam Neale evaded a challenge to break free on the right to cross for substitute Mathieson who slid the ball past Smyth for the winner.

Right wing-back Seanna Foster felt a draw was a fair reflection of the contest between Harland and Wolff Welders and Bangor on Saturday.

The defender also credited the Seasiders’ resolve at the back and cited a fourth clean sheet in seven league matches as a key fulcrum behind how the team can taste success this term. Foster was speaking following a goalless draw in east Belfast between the sides who started the day third and fourth in the table, but neither could make a decisive dent in the scoreline that could have laid full claim to the three points.

It was honours even and no goals on the Holywood Road this afternoon as Bangor and the Welders played out a scoreless draw. Bangor's best chances came in the second half when a Ben Arthurs strike went just past the upright and a quick flick from Scott McArthur was well saved by Argyrides. Lewis Harrison received his second caution of the afternoon in the closing stages as he attempted an overhead kick in the Welders penalty area.

A valiant comeback victory over Ballyclare Comrades has ensured Bangor their place in the quarter-finals of the County Antrim Shield. That Tuesday evening recovery from an early two-goal deficit was inspired by Seasider favourite Ben Arthurs’ four-goal haul, delivering two in each half to bring the Clandeboye institution into their second Shield last-eight encounter in three seasons; the previous occasion being in 2021, when a Second Round defeat to Cliftonville at Solitude spelt the end of their crusade.

This year, though, provides a unique dynamic. Five of the eight representatives of the quarters are from below the Premiership – Bangor join fellow second-tier trio Ards, Knockbreda and Dundela as well as last season’s PIL runners-up Ballymacash Rangers in flying the flag – and, depending on how Saturday’s draw pans out, the Yellows could find themselves in with a very real shot at a semi-final showdown. Feelings on prospective future opposition and much more were dissected by the heroic Arthurs and Bangor boss Lee Feeney post-match.

A four goal haul from Bangor striker Ben Arthurs helped put the Seasiders through to the quarter final stage of the County Antrim Shield at Clandeboye Park this evening.

Bangor started slowly, and the game was just 15 seconds old when Roohi fired the ball past Taylor. The Bangor defence was in disarray five minutes later when Roohi found space in the box once again to double the Comrades lead.

The Seasiders fought back and Ben Arthurs slotted the ball home after 15 minutes and then powered home a header ten minutes later to put the sides level going into the break.

Bangor took control of the game in the second half and two more powerful headers from Ben Arthurs secured Bangor's place in the next round.

A first half strike from Scott McArthur was enough to give Bangor their first win over Portadown at Shamrock Park since August 1994.

Bangor started brightly with the three frontmen of McArthur, Arthurs and Cushnie linking well to cause the Portadown back line all sorts of problems. The game was only 5 minutes old when Ben Arthurs went close with a 30 yard drive that was pushed round the post by Buchanan. A great piece of play in the 12th minute saw McArthur find space outside the area to drive low into the bottom corner of the net.

Bangor defended their lead magnificently throughout, with Neale and Francis commanding the centre of defence. Two stunning goal line saves from James Taylor midway through the second half denied the Ports any route back into the game and secured three valuable league points for the Seasiders.

Dundela took all three points away from a wet and windy Clandeboye Park this evening.

Playing into the driving rain, the Seasiders struggled to find their feet in the first half. The Shed End had little to cheers about as Lee Rea fired the Duns into a two goal lead before half-time.

A more energetic second half performance saw Bangor come back into the game. A bullet header from Ben Arthurs in the 66th minute made it 2-1, but despite creating numerous chances, the leveller proved elusive.

Very much against the run of play, Bangor took the lead after 20 minutes when Adam Neale found space in the area to head home a Ryan Arthur knock down. Ben Arthurs scored his 30th goal of the season after 36 minutes when his deflected shot from 25 yards looped kindly over the head of Smyth.

Bangor goalkeeper James Taylor produced a string of outstanding saves and the Bangor defence somehow managed to repel a number of goalmouth scrambles to maintain the two goal lead.

A towering header powered in by Ryan Arthur from a Reece Neale corner kick gave Bangor a three goal lead with 10 minutes remaining. Queen's did grab a late injury time consolation after yet more heroics from Taylor, but nothing could dampen the celebrations for the Seasiders at the final whistle.

Another deflected strike from Ben Arthurs put Bangor ahead in the 51st minute before Marc Orbinson was happy to see a Parkhill shot come back off his upright.

Ben Arthurs was on hand to bundle home a Scott McArthur cross to secure the win in injury time .

Bangor FC has submitted the Listen, Learn, Lead Plan to White Ribbon NI to help make society a safer place for women. The club has made the White Ribbon NI pledge to never commit, condone or stay silent about violence against women and girls.

During a White Ribbon NI learning event at St Andrews Presbyterian Church, Bangor FC Community Relations Officer Paul Cain said: "Making the White Ribbon NI pledge is an important first step for Bangor FC to show our support in the global movement to end male violence against women. The Bangor FC Listen, Learn, Lead Strategy, includes an action plan detailing what the club will undertake to achieve with White Ribbon in the next three years. This will involve naming White Ribbon champions, Safe Place training and the running of awareness sessions, workshops and fundraising events."

White Ribbon is a global movement to end male violence against women. Progress has been made by White Ribbon NI, encouraging groups and individuals to take action by making their personal pledge never to commit condone or remain silent about violence against women and girls. Over 40 organisations have signed the charter to date in Northern Ireland, including church leaders, local councils, schools, government departments and others.

Bangor FC Head of Women’s Football Michelle Crawford said: "I'm pleased our club is backing the White Ribbon NI campaign to end violence against women and girls and strive for equality. The board of directors and volunteers throughout the club work are encouraging as many people as possible to adopt the White Ribbon Promise, educate ourselves and others, and signpost people towards help. During the coming seasons Bangor FC will have a number of 'Days of Action', engaging with as many people as possible to drive home the message that there is never any excuse for abuse against women and girls."

White Ribbon NI Coordinator Tahnee McCorry said: " I want to extend my gratitude to Bangor FC for choosing to stand with us and use their voice to speak out against violence against women and girls. Violence against women is an issue in Northern Ireland that in the past has been hidden behind closed doors, not spoken about and in some instances accepted as inevitable. We believe creating a society which has zero tolerance to violence against women is an achievable reality, but it requires the collective effort of the entire community. Thank you, Bangor FC, for leading the way."

The White Ribbon NI Promise is - I promise to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women and girls.

The Seasiders are through to the last 16 of the Samuel Gelston's Whiskey Irish Cup. A hat-trick from Ben Arthurs and a late goal from Scott McArthur secured the win for Bangor in front of a bumper Clandeboye Park crowd.

Arthurs opened the scoring with a crisp finish past Robinson in the 36th minute. Ben bagged his second in the 49th minute when he poked home a pinpoint Reece Neale cross from the left. A 78th minute header from a David Hume cross saw Arthurs complete his hat-trick and substitute Scott McArthur then rounded off the scoring in the 87th minute when he was quickest to react to Robinson's save from a Halliday shot.

Bangor kicked off the new year with a 5-0 win over Lisburn Distillery at the New Grosvenor Stadium this afternoon.

Adam Neale had already struck the Distillery upright before Reece Neale opened the scoring in the 14th minute with a shot from the left that completely deceived Carry.

Ben Arthurs extended Bangor's lead early in the second half when he raced through to roll the ball into the bottom corner of the Distillery net. Ryan Arthur swept in a Reece Neale corner-kick in the 62nd minute to make it 3-0 and then substitute Dylan O'Kane picked up a loose ball on the edge of the area and rifled it into the bottom corner to make it 4-0.

Striker Adam Neale pounced on a rebound off the keeper in the closing moments of the game to make it 5-0.
