City start with win

After a dodgy start to their season last year Bangor City having limbered up in  Europe made a better fist of things in their first match of the new season.  City started the newly revamped Welsh Premier League with a win over the full timers of Neath.
The first half was evenly balanced. Bangor drew first blood with a penalty in the 19th minute which was converted by Morley. But within 3 minutes Neath equalised with a well taken goal by Hancock. Neither side made much of an impact in the remainder of the first half.
To coin a cliche, football is a game of two halves and the second half was dominated by City. Their passing was crisper with less of the mistakes of earlier. They dominated the Neath half. A goal from City was certainly on the agenda. But City took their time to convert  advantage in play to the tangible of a goal. A penalty was missed in the 82 minute. A draw seemed to be on the cards. But before City fans could get over their disappointment Hancock found the back of the net in the 84th  minute.

Time had run out on the full timers of Neath and they will have to wait a while yet for a return on their investment.
City will face Bala next Saturday with  some confidence after this performance. The game will be televised live on S4C at 3.45pm.
