Citizens finish Farrar season with a Bang

Bangor City ended their home campaign at Farrar Road and finished in style with a five goal flourish that completed the double over strugglers Newtown. First beaten by a slim 2-1 margin at Latham Park before Christmas, the Robins were punished again by doubles from Ashley Stott and Marc Lloyd Williams, plus a single Mike Walsh goal.

City were quick off the starting blocks, scoring within three minutes, as Lloyd Williams retrieved a loose ball on the left by-line a fraction ahead of Newtown 'keeper Jon Rowley and offered a measured chip into the unguarded goalmouth for Stott to use his head from a couple of yards.

It soon became 2-0 with just six minutes played as Lloyd Williams got on the score sheet himself, producing a rasping 20-yarder, when Newtown failed to clear Walsh's free-kick from the left. But then Bangor took their foot off the throttle and the game died as a spectacle, with only tame efforts directed towards the target by several players and Newtown also hardly offered a threat. It was City's third goal from Lloyd Williams again on 53 minutes that livened things up in the second period, the experienced striker burying a 10 yard chance after a Stott set-up.

Second rate Newtown were suddenly in business when Chris Courtney made the most of non-existent marking by the home defence to send a 20 yards shot beyond Ian Havard on 63 minutes.

Bangor were on red alert after that, with Stott sliding in the fourth goal on 67 minutes and Walsh netting from the edge of the box on 72, before Newtown produced a second reply from Nicky Jones on 75.
