After the success of Wales Women beating Montenegro 4-0 at the Book People Stadium in a World Cup qualifier, attention now turns to Saturday's massive play-off semi-final against Newtown AFC. The winners of the match will face either Carmarthen or Rhyl in the final where a place in the Europa League, and €110,000 in prize money awaits.
Speaking shortly after Bangor qualified for the play-offs, Manager Nev Powell urged City fans to turn out in force to back the team.
"The Bangor fans are a twelfth player to us and always have been. The reason we have been so successful over the past five years is the Bangor following. I'm sure in two weeks time we'll have a big crowd spurring the lads on and we are all looking forward to it immensely. The fans play a massive part in what we do. We've earned the right to be in that play-off semi-final and the players are going to enjoy it. If we can get into Europe it will be massive for us”.
Kick off is at 3pm. As usual, the bar will be open beforehand.
Entry to the match is priced at:
Student / OAP: £5
U16's : £2
Wales Women won 4-0 last night at the Book People Stadium with goals by Jess Fishlock (3) and Sarah Wiltshire. Goalkeeper Nicky Davies, who hails from Menai Bridge had a quiet evening as Wales continually kept the ball in the Montenegro half of the pitch. The entertaining match was watched by a crowd of 573.
Before the match the Bangor girls football team acted as mascots and flag bearers, and then as ball girls during the game itself.
Manager Jarmo Matikainen praised both the facilities and organisation in his post-match interviews, whilst also saying that he would be supportive of future internationals being held at the stadium.
