CONWY BOROUGH 1 - 1 BANGOR CITY
Conwy striker Tom McGill's 4th goal in as many games, with a superb overhead kick, earned Conwy a draw tonight against Bangor City.
The game started off with a slight delay due to some players being caught up in an earlier accident on the M56. Bangor City defender James Brewerton had to deputise in goal but was later replaced by keeper Kyle Clancy.
Conwy started brightly with Todd Blayney, in particular, moving the ball around well in midfield but it was Bangor took the lead midway through the first half when a Chris Jones cross was headed in by man of the moment, Les Davies.
However Conwy competed well and were much more solid at the back than in Saturdays performance against Junction. So, it was no more than they deserved late on in the half when a Joe Williams cross fell to Tom McGill inside the box and he unleashed a spectacular overhead kick to equalise.
Both sides made a number of changes in the second half with Conwy's Eddie Jebb almost putting his side in front, against his former club, by unleashing a ferocious right footed short from outside the box which forced Clancy into making a great save.
Bangor almost won the game themselves in the closing moments when Alan Bull broke free inside the Conwy box and saw his effort hit the bar.
In the end a draw was a fair result with a good work out for both sides in front of a healthy crowd at Y Morfa. Conwy Borough manager Chris Herbert was pleased with the effort from his players after the game in what was a much improved performance from the weekend: "It was a good disciplined performance by the lads. We looked organised and retained the ball well, which is very important against a side as good as Bangor."
"We are making good progress so far, and we still have a lot to work on. There is a lot more progress still to be made before the opening day of the season. Players are starting to gel together in the changing rooms and on the pitch, and the atmosphere around the place is really good at the moment, so it all helps to make it a place where players want to be playing their football."
