Prestatyn Town celebrate Welsh Cup
Prestatyn Town created Welsh Cup history by winning the trophy for the first time on an excellent Final at the Racecourse on Bank Holiday Monday.
A crowd of nearly two thousand saw an exciting final in brilliant sunshine at the Racecourse in Wrexham.
Jason Price,the former Swansea City player proved to be the hero with two goals. But the Prestatyn star proved to be goalkeeper Jon Hill Dunt with a man of the match performance.
Not only did he save Dave Morley's penalty he pulled off a brilliant save just before half time to preserve his teams one nil lead. Jason Price gave Prestatyn the perfect start with a goal after only two minutes.
Bangor ended the half strongly but trailed at the interval. Neville Powell' s team grew stronger in the second half and deservedly equalised through Chris Simm. But Prestatyn held on to take the game to extra time with Hill Dunt again outstanding.
There was plenty of drama in extra time, Prestatyn scored twice through Andy Parkinson and Jason Price. Bangor's cause not helped by the sending off of Michael Johnston for two yellow cards.
Neil Gibson and Lee Jones led the celebrations in front of their ecstatic supporters. They can now look forward to a first ever trip to Europe as they will compete in the Europa League First Qualifying Round next season.
