The highly experienced Nardiello signed for The Citizens ahead of last season’s Welsh Premier League campaign making an instant impact in a goal scoring debut against Cefn Druids in the 2016/17 WPL curtain raiser. Dan was an intrinsic part of the side that ensured qualification for the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League via the WPL Play-Offs.
The 34-year old, Coventry-born striker made a total of 28 (plus 4 substitute) appearances in the WPL for Bangor City and scored 13 WPL goals, finishing among the leading goal scorers in the WPL last season. Highlights included a hat-trick against Carmarthen Town in a 3-2 away win in March 2017 and one of City’s three goals in the 3-2 WPL Play-Off Semi Final win over Newtown in May.
Nardiello, began his career in the youth ranks with Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester United, before making over 300 EFL appearances and scoring over 100 goals for Barnsley, Queen’s Park Rangers, Blackpool, Exeter City, Rotherham United and Bury.
Dan also followed in the footsteps of his father, former Coventry City player Donato Nardiello, by representing Wales at senior level, winning one cap in a friendly international against New Zealand in May 2007.
Dan made his final appearance in a Bangor City shirt in Tuesday night’s Nathaniel MG Cup defeat at Connah’s Quay Nomads.
Bangor City FC would like to thank Dan for his services to the club and wish him every future success. Diolch yn fawr, Dan!
