Young Citizens hit double figures as they dismantle Prestatyn at Nantporth
4 ' GOAL: Sam Jones scores the first goal for Bangor after some great build-up play. Bangor City U19 1-0 Prestatyn Town U19
6' Relentless pressure from Bangor gets Jake Jones free into space, but his shot goes over the cross bar.

By now, the young Citizens are playing with more confidence.
