I received a very pleasant and informative email today from the Bangor City Supporters Association and I think it is an excellent idea that we include details of this on the BangorEye.com website.
Ideally we would like to include a match reports on the teams progress throughout the season and invite members and supporters to take photos and send them to us with a match report perhaps? If you are interested in being our very own Bangor City match reporter, then please contact us here at BangorEye and we will arrange it for you. The next event on their calendar is on Sunday August 26th Bangor City Legends against Everton Legends! Are there any offers to cover this event for us? If so get in touch with us now!
The group also have their own well made website (www.bcfcsa.com) , but we would like to include as much as we can on the BangorEye website as well.
The same offer applies to any other organisation of this sort as well. So get in touch with us today and support the city, support what's going on in the city and through it all support BangorEye -Keeping an Eye on Bangor!
Here is the email we received. UP THE BLUES!
I would be grateful if you would include our Association on Bangor Eye and in future consider including the events organised by the association on your events page of the site.
Bangor City Supporters' Association is a body independent of Bangor City Football Club, but with a real voice in running the Club. The Supporters' Association Chair is automatically a member of the Board of the Football Club and there is now a regular exchange of views and news between Supporters' Association members and the directors of the Club. The Supporters' Association has also received shares from the Club in recognition of the increasing support that it has been able to provide.
Funds raised by the Supporters' Association have already contributed towards the signing-on fees of important first-team players, assisting with the financial commitments of the club as agreed by members and have also purchased training equipment for the Club's Youth Academy.
Formed in 2004, the Association holds social and fundraising events, such as Sportsman's Dinners, Casino Nights, Annual 7-a-side Tournament, Veterans' Cup, Annual Duck Race, BBQs, Matchday Raffle, Big Prize Raffles, SA merchandise and many other events aimed at getting supporters together, raising funds for all sections of the Club - and having a good time!
The Association has held a number of successful Sportsmen’s Dinners with guests from national radio and television and most recently the guest speaker was John Toshack, Manager of the Wales football team.
The Association recently held another successful Soccer Sevens tournament for adult, Under 9 and Under 11 teams that attracted entries from across North Wales and Cheshire. As with our other events this was enabled through our links with local businesses such as Bangor and Caernarfon Business Against Crime, the Deiniol Centre, McDonalds and Patrick’s Bar.
Future events planned include a match played between Bangor City Legends and Everton FC Legends to be played on Sunday August 26th and will see the return to Bangor of players who have represented the city over recent decades.
The match will be played at Farrar Road in what will be the last season at the ground after over eighty years. We are currently collecting information, photos and stories about the ground and people’s memories and it may well be that this would be of interest to readers of your History Page.
Later in the year it is planned to hold a Santa Run through the city and we have held successful talks with local council officials, North Wales Police and other interested parties. Our primary interest is in supporting and promoting our football club but in doing this we are mindful of the importance of recognising and promoting in a positive way the city, its people and businesses.
We wish you well with the website and promoting the positive benefits of living in Bangor.
Peter Hibbs On behalf of Bangor City FC Supporters’ Association
