Legg needs time to build a side

Bangor Mail - - SPORT - WITH MATT JOHN­SON

WELL that wasn’t quite the Sun­day af­ter­noon we all wanted but then a 2-0 home de­feat wouldn’t have felt bet­ter on a Fri­day evening or a Satur­day.

Sepp Her­berger’s fa­mous quote, fa­mous if you’re a Ger­man foot­ball fan that is, fits here: “Af­ter the match is be­fore the match.”

In other words, we shouldn’t worry too much about a sin­gle match be­cause there’ll be an­other one along very shortly.

We can’t ex­pect smooth­ness over the next few weeks, es­pe­cially when we face other more set­tled sides.

Sport­ing suc­cess doesn’t ar­rive on a pre­cise timetable and that in­cludes the care­fully planned ap­proach of Dein­iolen’s Dave Brails­ford.

Be­sides, if we look for pos­i­tives in our play they are there – Con­nor saved an­other penalty for ex­am­ple.

It was also good that we not only tempted an­other crowd of over 600 to Nant­porth, they also gave Les the ex­pected warm wel­come.

We have two home league matches in the next week – Bala on Satur­day evening (5.15pm kick-off) and New­town next Wednes­day (7.45pm).

On Tues­day, Septem­ber 6, Nant­porth hosts a U21 qual­i­fier be­tween Wales and Lux­em­bourg (5pm).

It is Wales’ penul­ti­mate qual­i­fy­ing match and at the mo­ment we can still qual­ify for the 2017 fi­nals in Poland, es­pe­cially as we play Den­mark, the group lead­ers, in Wrex­ham on the pre­ced­ing Fri­day.

This event is a wel­come re­minder about the stan­dard of fa­cil­i­ties we can of­fer.

If you went to last week­end’s Me­nai Seafood Festival by car you may have been as­sisted by a BCFCSA mem­ber when park­ing. Help­ing peo­ple in car parks is just one of our ac­tiv­i­ties that helps both BCFCSA and the lo­cal com­mu­nity. Satur­day re­in­forces just how much we rely on vol­un­teers for the work we do.
