Bangor Debutants Defeat Druids

Two early second half goals put Bangor on the road to victory in Andy Legg's first game at the helm.

Bangor City’s summer revolution got off to a winning start as Andy Legg’s men beat newly promoted Cefn Druids in the new manager’s first competitive match at the helm.

A number of the Citizen’s supporters were disappointed to see Neville Powell parting company with the club – but debutant Daniel Nardiello put the new manager’s boys ahead a matter of seconds after the restart to claim his first Bangor goal in his first game.

Fellow debutant Henry Jones emulated Nardiello's feat as he doubled the Citizens' lead a minute later - and that was enough to secure the three points for Andy Legg in his first game at the helm.

Stuart Cook gave the visitors a little hope in added time but his great 20 yard strike wasn't enough to claim anything tangible from the match.

Druids boss Huw Griffiths – a former Bangor player of course - had also been busy in the transfer market over the summer months and while he would have been disappointed with the result on Friday evening – there were plenty of positive aspects in his side’s performance to give them hope for the remainder of the season.

Cafodd Andy Legg ddechrau da i’w yrfa fel rheolwr newydd Bangor wrth i’r Dinasyddion drechu’r Derwyddon yng ngornest agoriadol y tymor nos Wener.

‘Roedd nifer o gefnogwyr y clwb cartref yn siomedig iawn bod Neville Powell wedi gadael y clwb yn ddiweddar – ond ‘roeddent i gyd ar eu traed pan roddodd Daniel Nardiello y crysau gleision ar y blaen eiliadau'n unig wedi i'r ail hanner ddechrau. Ei gôl gyntaf yn ei gêm gyntaf dros ei glwb newydd.

O fewn munud 'roedd Henry Jones wedi efelychu camp Nardiello pan rwydodd am y tro cyntaf dros y Dinasyddion yn ei ymddangosiad cyntaf yntau hefyd.

Rhoddodd ergyd hyfryd Stuart Cook yn amser yr amen obaith i'r Derwyddon - ond 'doedd ddim yn ddigon yn y pendraw.

Er gwaethaf ambell agwedd gadarnhaol yn eu perfformiad – bydd rheolwr y Derwyddon Huw Griffiths, yn naturiol yn siomedig gyda’r canlyniad – yn enwedig gan iddo chwarae dros y Dinasyddion yn y 90au.
