Craw­ley cracks in her first Ban­gor hat-trick

Bangor Mail - - SPORT -

BAN­GOR CITY marked their re­turn to North Wales Women’s Foot­ball League ac­tion in style with a 5-0 home beat­ing of Bala Town last Sun­day.

Three of the six games sched­uled went ahead as league fix­tures recom­menced un­der the aus­pices of the Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion of Wales af­ter a four-week break.

The league had been sus­pended since early Jan­uary by the FAW over its re­fusal to ad­mit new team Rhyl FC De­vel­op­ment to the fix­ture list.

The Rhyl side had won ap­peals to both the NWCFA and FAW against its ex­clu­sion, but the NWWFL still blocked the team from com­pet­ing, ar­gu­ing it should play its foot­ball in a women’s de­vel­op­ment league – some­thing North Wales does not cur­rently pos­sess.

The FAW sus­pended the NWWFL for non-com­pli­ance with its ap­peals com­mit­tee’s de­ci­sion and has taken over the run­ning of the league for the rest of the cam­paign.

Ban­gor pro­duced a high­ly­im­pres­sive at­tack­ing per­for­mance which saw Lexi Craw­ley notch her first hat-trick for the team.

Top-scorer Ceri Lois added a dou­ble, with Cerys Gadd win­ning the Player-of-the-Match award.

Un­for­tu­nately, Ban­gor player Han­nah McGoona suf­fered a bro­ken nose and con­cus­sion in a col­li­sion with Bala’s Sarah Cow­ell, who was also in­jured.

Top-of-the-table Northop Hall en­joyed a 6-1 home drub­bing of Prestatyn.

The NWWFL’s top markswoman, Laura Pen­ning­ton, picked up where she left off with yet an­other hat-trick for the Flintshire side.

Laura Ea­gles, Gemma Wil­liams and Ash­leigh Fos­ter were also on tar­get for the home team, with Mil­lie O’Con­nor re­spond­ing for the vis­i­tors.

There was a fine win for Den­bigh Town at Bethel, the Vale of Cl­wyd side re­turn­ing home 3-0 vic­tors thanks to goals from Chelsea Wil­liams, Eluned Evans and Jenny Davies.

Post­poned were: Kin­mel Bay v Air­bus, Llanfair United v Pwll­heli Rhyl De­vel­op­ment v Amlwch Town.
