Ri­vals’ Welsh Cup fourth round tie is set to be tele­vised live on S4C

Bangor Mail - - BUSINESS -

THE JD Welsh Cup fourth round tie be­tween arch-ri­vals Ban­gor City and Caernar­fon Town will be shown live on S4C.

The match will be at Ban­gor’s Nant­porth on Satur­day, Jan­uary 26, kick-off 7.30pm.

S4C com­mis­sioner for sport Sue But­ler said: “This tie is un­doubt­edly the stand­out match in the JD Welsh Cup fourth round. It has all the in­gre­di­ents of a clas­sic.”

Cov­er­age on S4C’s Sgo­rio will start at 7.20pm, with English sub­ti­tles avail­able. English sound­track on the red but­ton on Sky, Free­view or Vir­gin Me­dia. Freesat view­ers should use the au­dio se­lec­tion op­tion.

Caernar­fon have won the last two meet­ings be­tween the sides, beat­ing the Cit­i­zens 1-0 at Nant­porth in the 2015/16 Word Cup and pre­vail­ing on penal­ties af­ter a 2-2 draw in the 2013/14 NWCFA Chal­lenge Cup Fi­nal, also played at Ban­gor. The teams last clashed in the Welsh Cup in 1997/98, when Ban­gor won 2-0 at Far­rar Road. The two clubs swapped places over the sum­mer – Town pro­moted to the Welsh Premier and City de­moted to the Huws Gray Al­liance.

LES DAVIES has left Ban­gor City for the sec­ond time in his foot­ball ca­reer.

The striker (in­set, in blue), af­fec­tion­ately nick­named “The Truck”, has joined Llan­dudno FC’s bid to save Welsh Premier League sta­tus.

Davies, 33, ini­tially spent 10 sea­sons at Ban­gor, net­ting 88 goals in 252 Welsh Premier starts, be­fore join­ing Con­nah’s Quay No­mads in 2015-16.

The 33-year-old moved to Bala Town last term but was re­leased in the sum­mer. Davies re­turned to Nant­porth in May 2018 as then new man­ager Craig Har­ri­son’s first sign­ing. His form in the Huws Gray Al­liance had been mixed and ru­mours cir­cu­lated for some weeks that he was un­set­tled, but the “Maes­geirchen Moun­tain” is hugely pop­u­lar with Ban­gor fans and will be sorely missed. City sup­port­ers were dealt a fur­ther blow with the news lead­ing scorer Alex Dar­ling­ton and key de­fender An­thony Stephens could also be on their way, the sub­ject of a sub­stan­tial of­fer from Mosta FC of Malta, where Ban­gor’s ex-di­rec­tor of foot­ball Stephen Vaughan Jr now holds a prom­i­nent coach­ing po­si­tion.
