Nev Powell was delighted with his young side

Bangor City manager Neville Powell declared himself delighted with his young team’s performance, as the Citizens claimed their first home win of the season, 3 -2 over Aberystwyth Town at The Book People Stadium on Friday evening.

Although you hear a lot about the promising youngsters we are bringing through at Bangor City, we also have some ‘old heads’ in the team, and tonight Les Davies and Sion Edwards led from the front


"Against an experienced and in-form Aberystwyth Town team, I feel that we controlled 90% of the game. Apart from the very start of the match and the very end, we played some of our best football of the season and were rewarded with three good goals.

"Although you hear a lot about the promising youngsters we are bringing through at Bangor City, we also have some ‘old heads’ in the team, and tonight Les Davies and Sion Edwards led from the front, and were a real handful for the Aber defence.

"Every week we play together we play better, and I hope we can build upon this excellent performance in the matches to come."
