News Bangor recorded a 3-0 league win over Cookstown RBL at a rainy Beechway Playing Fields this afternoon.

The Seasiders dominated much of the first half, which saw both Niall Atkinson and Abby Sanusi go close from set pieces. The effervescent Gerard McMullan eventually opened the scoring for the Seasiders in the 25th minute with a headed goal from a deep Chris Getty cross.

Bangor doubled their lead early in the second half when an unfortunate Cookstown defender headed past his own keeper.

Bangor continued to press Cookstown throughout a second half which saw Niall Atkinson strike the Cookstown woodwork for a second time. Niall's hard work was rewarded in the 63rd minute when he made it 3-0 with a delightful lob from distance.

Bangor progressed comfortably into the next round of the Steel & Sons Cup with a 9-0 win over Kilmore Rec at the Bangor Fuels Arena this afternoon.

Jack Wasson opened the scoring after 4 minutes with a somewhat fortunate looping effort. Dale Patton and the returning Ethan Boylan followed up with goals number 2 and 3 before the 20 minute mark.

Five minutes before half-time, defender Chris Getty fired one into the top corner from wide on the right to make it 4-0.

Dwaine Beattie and Dale Patton both found the net with speculative strikes just before half-time to make it 6-0 at the break.

Bangor had to wait until the 75th minute for their next goal when Kyle Woods tapped in a rebound from a Keith Armstrong shot from distance.

Captain Andy Long's 40 yard cross (definitely a cross) from wide on the right somehow found the back of the net to make it 8-0 and Jordan Lucas completed the scoring in the 89th minute when he broke the offside trap to slide the ball past the advancing Kilmore keeper.

Seasiders eclipsed by Swifts

News

Bangor suffered a second defeat of the week this evening, going down 2-1 in a closely fought contest with St. James Swifts at the Bangor Fuels Arena.

Michael McClean gave the Seasiders the lead in the 20th minute with a powerful header, but a deflected Eugene Gallagher strike on 44' saw the teams go in level at the break.

The game looked to be heading for a draw until the 84th minute when Jack Wasson's strong challenge richocheted back off Padraig McCormick and into the Bangor net.

Bangor forced a series of corners and pushed hard for an equalizer in the closing minutes, but could not find a way past Maybin in the Swifts goal. Another disappointing result for the Seasiders.

A last gasp goal from substitute Michael Edgar salvaged a point the Seasiders at the Bangor Fuels Arena tonight.

Kyle Woods headed Bangor into the lead after 15 minutes, but Curtis Dempster's curling free-kick levelled it for Brantwood on 21'.

The second half was barely a minute old when Bangor captain Andy Long was dismissed for a second yellow card. Even with 10 men, Bangor dominated much of the play, but were caught out in the 80th minute when Ross Cowan delicately lobbed Darren Gibbons to put Brantwood ahead.

With five minutes to go, Darren Gibbons saved a Dempster spot kick, and minutes later Bangor were reduced to 9 men when Keith Armstrong was given his marching orders.

With just nine men on the pitch, Bangor rallied and substitute Michael Edgar nodded home the leveller in the 90th minute.

Billy succeeds the previous president Gifford McConkey, who sadly died during the past year and is greatly missed.

Billy, a Bangor fan since his school days, was appointed as a board member in 1989, a post he served for over 28 years. Billy has also been involved in many roles with the club as a supporter, committee member and volunteer. Although, many Bangor fans will know Billy from his role on the turnstiles, where he would greet fans with his genial enthusiasm and dry wit every match day.

Billy Palmer said: "I am really pleased to have been appointed as the Bangor FC president. It is an honour for me and I am delighted for me and my family. It is the pinnacle of my career at the football club."

Bangor FC chairman Nicky Davidson said: "Billy's loyalty, commitment and dedication to Bangor FC over the past decades have earned him the highest respect from his colleagues, peers and many friends at the club.

"Billy is a hugely popular figure at the club and his appointment as president is reward for the time and effort he has put in as a fan, volunteer and member of the board. We all congratulate Billy on becoming president, the highest position to hold at Bangor FC."

Bangor FC will postpone the introduction of a reserve team until 2018/19 season.

The decision was made following discussions between the Bangor FC board and management team. Bangor FC chairman Nicky Davidson said: "We have decided to postpone a reserve team until next season. This is because of financial restrictions we've encountered since taking charge, coupled with player issues. Many of our U20s had already departed the club before we had even arrived."

"Hugh and his management team agree that we need to be focussing on first team issues to ensure we only spend one season in the Ballymena Intermediate League. However, we plan to introduce a reserve team from 2018/19."

Nicky concluded: "Thank you to everyone who took the time and effort to apply for the reserve team manager position. We appreciate the application and will keep it on file until next season."

The Hugh Sinclair Interview

New Bangor boss Hugh Sinclair sat down with Bangorfc.com on Tuesday night to discuss the task in hand of leading the Seasiders back to Irish League Football.

The challenge ahead..

"Without doubt this is a different challenge to what I have faced before. Bangor is the biggest club I have managed. I am privileged to be given the opportunity to come on board and take the reins at a club like Bangor. While it is a challenge, I am excited to face up to it. As a club we are where we are and we all need to galvanise, pull together and move in the right direction."

The backroom team..

"My first team coach will be John Moore while I am bringing Ross Williams in as my assistant manager. Ross is a former-Bangor player and his appointment might be a surprise to a lot of people but Ross has great people skills and will bring a calming influence to the dressing room."

Hugh Sinclair

The players..

"I am looking for players who want to come and play for Bangor Football Club. I want players to come and grasp the vision here. As a manager I have always looked to get players with a good work ethic and a physical approach to their game. By having a strong spine to the team I can then look to add the creativity which we will need. I am looking to build a squad which is mainly made up of players from the Bangor and north Down area. I believe that the catchment is here to do that without doubt. We have to be honest and at the minute Bangor and Ards are streets apart. I want to close that gap but at the minute, outside of Ards, I want Bangor to be the best option for players in the local area. I watched Bangor a couple of times last season and it was not the Bangor side that I was used to seeing when I managed Knockbreda. The team and club have suffered over the past number of years and I want to put that right. I have an idea of the strengths of some of the existing players and I will be talking to them over the coming days."

The aim..

"My aspirations for this season are to win the Steel and Sons Cup, the league and gain promotion. Those are achievable targets for Bangor and if they were not, I would not be here as the manager. I have always been a competitor and I am confident that I can motivate players and get the best out of them and achieve our objectives."

The Ballymena & Provincial Intermediate League..

"We cannot afford to go into this season arrogantly. We will prepare properly and I have somebody who will watch games in the league for me and report back. Bangor will be the big scalp for clubs this season. Clubs will come to our home and covet the facilities we have and as a result they will up their performance and we need to be ready to react to that. I am delighted that we will have a reserve team competing in the Ballymena and Provincial league structure next season. I will be putting together a squad of players who will all want to be playing football. To an extent, if someone is not playing for the first team, it eases the disappointment for them if they are getting a game for a reserve side."

Our supporters..

"I want our supporters to be themselves. They pay their money to come and watch their team. If things are going well, they will share their opinion. If things are going badly, they will share their opinion. There are no backdoors to me and I will be open and honest with our supporters. I am not going to treat people with disdain and I will make myself readily available to our supporters at any time throughout the season for a discussion with them. I want to build a cohesion and camaraderie right across this club. If the players and supporters can have an affinity with each other ultimately the club will see the benefits."
