Bangor Mail - - SPORT -

BAN­GOR City has an­nounced Nant­porth Sta­dium will be re­named the VSM Ban­gor City Foot­ball Club Sta­dium in a new spon­sor­ship deal.

Vaughan Sports Man­age­ment, the club’s prin­ci­pal shirt spon­sor for the past two sea­sons, will be­come the main ti­tle backer of the sta­dium and will also be re­veal­ing de­tails of spon­sor­ship of Ban­gor City FC’s suc­cess­ful Academy set-up shortly.

Last night’s JD Welsh Pre­mier League fix­ture against Aberys­t­wyth Town was due to be the first match played un­der the sta­dium’s new guise.

With cov­ered seat­ing for more than 1,180 spec­ta­tors, City’s home since 2012 has al­ready es­tab­lished it­self as a prime lo­ca­tion for rep­re­sen­ta­tive matches, in­clud­ing FAW Welsh Cup Fi­nals and In­ter­na­tional games. The VSM Ban­gor City Foot­ball Club Sta­dium will host two pres­ti­gious Wales UEFA Un­der-21 Cham­pi­onship qual­i­fy­ing matches this month with Bos­nia-Herze­gov­ina this Fri­day (Novem­ber 10) and Ro­ma­nia (Tues­day, Novem­ber 14) the vis­i­tors (both 6pm kick-offs).

Ban­gor-born Nathan Broad­head (Ever­ton) is among Robert Page’s 18-man squad se­lected for the in­ter­na­tional dou­ble-header.

Page welcomes back Chris Mepham af­ter the de­fender missed the win over Liecht­en­stein through sus­pen­sion, while Liver­pool’s Harry Wil­son, from Cor­wen, re­turns to the squad. For­mer Rhyl stop­per Owen Evans (Wi­gan Ath­letic) is one of the two keep­ers cho­sen.
