Wales round-up: Bangor seek cash boost

UEFA Intertoto Cup hopefuls Bangor City FC have applied for funding from the Football Association of Wales.
UEFA Intertoto Cup qualifiers Bangor City FC have applied for funding from the Football Association of Wales (FAW) as they prepare to face first-round opponents from Romania.

Financial help
The Citizens, who must travel to CF Gloria Bistrita 1922 for the return leg of their tie on the weekend of 28/29 June, have asked the FAW to help them pay the tournament entrance fee.

'Step into the unknown'
Meanwhile, Bangor manager Peter Davenport spoke of the trip to Romania as "a step into the unknown" for the Welsh Premiership side. Davenport has strengthened his squad with the signings of striker Gary Roberts and utility player Peter Hoy from non-league clubs in England and Wales. But former Welsh international winger Simon Davies has left to join League of Wales runners-up TNS Llansantffraid FC.

New signings
Welsh Cup finalists Cwmbran Town FC have also been busy in the transfer market, bringing in four new players: goalkeeper Marty Ellacott from Ton Pentre AFC; Gareth Wharton (Llanelli FC); Jodi Jenkins (Llansantffraid); and Chris Summers (Haverfordwest County AFC).

Outgoing transfers
However, Cwmbran midfield player Nathan Cotterell has signed for Premiership champions Barry Town AFC, while John Wile and Ryan Shugar have quit the club to move to Port Talbot Town FC.

Welsh success
Elsewhere, Cardiff City FC gained promotion to the English first division when they beat Queen's Park Rangers FC 1-0 in a second division play-off final. Substitute Andy Campbell scored the goal six minutes from the end of extra time at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium. Wrexham AFC also moved up a tier as they were promoted to the second division, while Swansea City escaped relegation from the third division by a point.
