News from the New Stadium

hotspur celebrate welsh cup win over bangor city in the changing roomEight-time winners The Citizens are now eliminated from this season's Welsh Cup competition. It was a famous night for Holyhead Hotspur on Tuesday after eliminating eight-time winners Bangor City from this season's Welsh Cup competition. Thanks to goals from Rhys Roberts and Dean Garmey the Harbourmen will now face more Welsh Premier opposition in the form of high-flyers Bala Town in round four.

Played in front of a crowd of over 700 at the New Stadium, home manager Campbell Harrison could not hide his delight after the final whistle." This is probably the best day in the club's history," said Harrison. "I'm made up for the lads after achieving this fantastic result. "Going in, the players were definitely geed up for the game. Bangor's the biggest club in the area, so our players didn't need much motivation really. The lads genuinely believed we could get a result tonight." It was the Huws Gray Alliance side that carved out the better chances during a wind-assisted first half, and would consider themselves unlucky to go in scoreless despite a Chris Jones goal being chalked off for the visitors. A number of Hotspur efforts just missed the target, including a smart stop from ex-Cheltenham goalkeeper Connor Roberts, who managed to tip over a Dewi Thomas effort from a free kick.

Ex-City man Corey Jones will also feel he should have scored at least one of three chances that fell to him in the penalty box. But as the second half got underway, Bangor started to display better football before finally taking the lead on the hour mark with full-back Matty Woodward tapping in from close range after keeper Carl Jones spilled a corner kick. Just 10 minutes later, City's Shaun Cavanagh rounded the keeper but his effort went narrowly wide, much to the relief of the home faithful. But the equaliser came just two minutes later, with former Bodedern and Porthmadog man Rhys Roberts getting the final touch following a goalmouth scramble.

With the home side managing to retain the ball, there was no time for the Citizens to carve out any more chances, with the final whistle met with delight from the ecstatic home crowd.

Paying tribute to his players, Hotspur boss Harrison added: "The crowd were brilliant tonight, they really got behind us and it's something we'd love to see week in week out. "We kept it really tight, it was a game of few chances but happily we took more than they did. "I think first half we had the best chances but I was really impressed with how the lads kept going even after Bangor scored. Our heads didn't drop, we were spirited and kept going." On the round four tie against Bala on February 6, he added: "It's been a long time since we played Bala, who have developed a lot as a club since we were in the same division."It'll certainly be another test, they are one of the best sides in Wales at the moment. I hope we can stay injury free over the Christmas period and be able to give them a good game."
