City Chairman praises three-times Cup-winning team

Bangor City Chairman Dilwyn Jones has praised the team which has brought the Club its third successive Welsh Cup final victory.

“Naturally, I am absolutely thrilled for everyone associated with City. This is an outstanding achievement brought to us by Neville Powell, Marc Limbert and all the players.

“No praise is too high for Neville, Marc and the never-say-die attitude of the team - which was well in evidence at Parc y Scarlets last Saturday.”

“I must also pay tribute to the hard work put in by the off-field team at the club, who have invested time, expertise and money in laying firm foundations for the Club’s success. I am confident that we will be able to build on this in future to bring even greater rewards. “

“I must in particular thank our Club President Gwyn Pierce Owen, who again this season has financially supported the manager, especially with the new signings he brought in during the January transfer window. These paid huge dividends for us, with the reward being obvious to all at the final on Saturday. Gwyn was not at the final due to ill-health, so he lived every kick, tackle and goal at home on TV. Gwyn you were missed at Parc y Scarlets. I hope your health improves soon and we look forward to seeing you again at Farrar Road next season, sucking the ball into the St Paul’s goal during the second half of matches.’’

“Clubs such as ours are often not in a position to employ full-time staff, so I must also pay a hearty vote of gratitude to all the volunteers who keep us running so smoothly. I am speaking of the turnstile attendants, programme sellers, voluntary stewards, ball-boys, fundraisers, catering assistants and many others who freely give up their time to help the Club. Their contribution is often unrecognised, but they bring so much to an efficient operation and a welcoming atmosphere at Farrar Road.”

“I must also call for a round of applause to the local businesses – many of them small, local businesses – who have supported us through sponsorship and advertising. As a businessman myself, I know that in the tight financial climate we have experienced, every pound and penny counts. That is why I appreciate all the more the backing we’ve received from the local business community this year”.

“Finally, I have to thank our magnificent fans. Throughout the season, they have been a twelfth man to the lads on the pitch, and never more so that at the Cup Final last weekend, when, despite having travelled the length of Wales to be at the match, they outnumbered and out-sang our opponents’ supporters”.

Dilwyn Jones concluded, “We have a lot of work to do over the close season, not least ensuring that our appeal is successful which will enable us to take our place in the WPL again next season, along with excitedly preparing for our next European excursion. Before that however, we would like to wish our successful Reserve team congratulations for their achievement so far in winning the Caernarfon and District League Div 1 title, and wish them all the very best of luck in their three upcoming Cup Finals’’ –
