MATCH OF THE DAY: Our away fixture against TNS to be played on 30 October has been selected as the main feature game on S4C's Y Clwb Pêl-Droed. So, come down to Y Treflan, Llansantffraid next Saturday and get yourselves in front of the cameras making a noise for City - then watch the highlights on TV - either on Saturday evening or repeated on S4C Digital (channel 104) at around 11.00 pm on Monday. An unusual feature of the game will be that referee Callum Murray from the Scottish Football League will be officiating - part of an innovative exchange programme devised by the WPL and Scottish League counterparts. (23 October 2004).
MATCH OFF! Our home match against Port Talbot, scheduled for 23 October, is postponed due to bad weather. (23 October 2004)
FAMOUS MANAGER: One of Wales' most famous football managers was interviewed live from Farrar Road on last Tuesday's edition of the S4C magazine programme Wedi Saith. No, it wasn't John Toshack. Brian Flynn, Gary Speed or anyone else being mentioned for the vacant national team job - nor should current City boss Peter Davenport feel worried! The manager in question was Arthur Picton, alias actor John Pierce Jones, boss of fictional team Bryncoch FC who appear in the Welsh-language comedy Cmon Midffild! The feature was to promote a forthcoming special to be broadcast this coming Christmas. (22 October 2004)
WELSH CUP OPPOSITION: Welsh League Division One outfit Dinas Powys will be our opponents in the 3rd Round of the Welsh Cup, the game to be played on Sunday 7 November, KO 2.00 pm - and not the date and time previously advertised.

FRESHERS FOR FREE: The gate at our game against Haverfordwest was boosted by first year students from the University and Coleg Menai who received free match-day passes. Over 70 students took advantage of the offer and the Club hopes that what they saw will encourage them to become regular (paying!) supporters. Matchday passes had been distributed through the Coleg Menai Sports Department and at the University Freshers' Fair where the Club also had a merchandise stand. (10 October 2004)
STORMIN' SOUNDS: Supporters might have noticed pre-match and interval music rather more contemporary than the usual (rather MOR) diet being broadcast at Bangor's recent match against Haverfordwest. This was thanks to Storm FM, Bangor Univeristy's radio station, which kindly agreed to sponsor the match. The arrangement with Storm is just part of the Club's drive to forge even stronger links with the University - a partnership which has netted the Club enthusiastic support and some more-than-useful players over recent years.
