Hat-Trick Hero Jones is Spot On

Sam Jones fires three penalties - all awarded for fouls on strike partner Alex Boss - as the Young Citizens ease to a 4-0 win over the Ancients

Bangor City's Under-19 Development side returned to winning ways with a comfortable 4-0 verdict over visitors Cefn Druids at Nantporth on Sunday afternoon.

The reigning WPDL North champions were awarded three penalties (which Sam Jones converted) as the Druids defence was unable to cope with the pace of the fleet-footed Alex Boss. A late strike from substitute Jason Banks complemented a profitable afternoon for coach Dave Cavanagh's young side.

On a sunny September afternoon at Nantporth, both sides enjoyed early opportunities to open the scoring but it was the Citizens who settled quickest and gradually imposed their tempo on the game.

After several close calls, the breakthrough eventually arrived on 25 minutes as Alex Boss outpaced his marker only to be brought down by the onrushing Druids keeper just inside the penalty area. Up stepped Sam Jones to send the Cefn guardian in the opposite direction as he finished low to his right.

Incisive forward play by the home side saw Jones go close on several more occasions with wing-backs Mark Dunn and Gruff Stead both enjoying considerable freedom on either flank of the lush Nantporth surface.

Half Time: Bangor City U19 1-0 Cefn Druids U19

The young Citizens didn't have to wait long to extend their lead as the second half began. Just five minutes into the half, and Alex Boss proved once again to be the thorn in the Druids' side as he was again brought down as he raced through on goal.

Sam Jones duly converted the spot kick at the second time of asking as the Cefn guardian managed to block the initial effort only for the tireless Jones to make sure with the follow up.

Coach Dave Cavanagh then made a couple of changes on the hour with the introduction of firstly Geraint Jones (60 minutes) and then Ben Williams (65 minutes) to add some fresh impetus into the match.

Five minutes later and Alex Boss raced through on goal once again only to be brought down by the wild challenge of the Cefn centre back. Penalty! Unfortunately, the live wire forward was in considerable pain from the tackle and played no further part in the game - a precautionary medical check to assess any prospective damage his reward for a sterling afternoon's work.

The spot kick was duly despatched (in more emphatic style this time) by Sam Jones as he celebrated the rare feat of a hat-trick of penalty goals in a single match.

It wasn't all one-way traffic though and Cefn did threaten at times but the City defence and goalkeeper Leon Jones were the equal of the threat as the Citizens sought to ensure a shut out against the visitors.

City put the icing on the cake on a good afternoon's work by adding a fourth goal in the final minute of play as substitute Jason Banks showed good composure to finish from close range.

Final Score: Bangor City U19 4-0 Cefn Druids U19

The Under-19's will look to build momentum this coming Sunday (24 September) when Conwy Borough U19 are the visitors to Nantporth (2pm Kick Off) on Matchday 5.
