Welsh Cup winners Bangor City play Royal Welch Fusiliers in charity game for Help for Heroes. CELEBRATION and charity will be the joint theme of a very special football match being played at Bangor City’s Farrar Road ground tomorrow.
Neville Powell’s Citizens take on the Royal Welch Fusiliers in a game which has a double incentive. As well as forming a homecoming celebration for City’s third successive Welsh Cup triumph earlier this month, the match will also raise money for the Help for Heroes charity, an organisation formed to help those who have been wounded in Britain’s current conflicts.
Bangor plan to field the majority of the first team squad and a few of the successful reserves side, while the RWF are a regular footballing unit who play charity matches. It is also hoped there will be guest appearances by some well-known radio DJs and a penalty prize competition is planned.
“We want mums and dads, the youth of Bangor and all regular and new fans to come out and support this great event,” said City’s commercial manager Brian Harvey. “The Colonel of the North Wales Royal Welch Fusiliers has been invited as well as the Mayor. It has been a great season for Bangor City and this will be a brilliant way to round it off – a celebration of our success and the chance to raise money for a very worthy cause.”
Admittance charge is £5 for adults and £3 concessions and the match kicks off at 7pm.
