BANGOR STADIUM MOVE IN THE CART
BANGOR City F C is appealing for community backing as it faces one of the most important months in the club's history.
The rallying call was issued this week as the application to relocate the Farrar Road ground (above) was put back.
The earliest date the application can now be heard is 30 July, even though the bid was submitted at the beginning of April.
Club officials have now asked the people of Bangor to back the bid by inundating Gwynedd planning department with messages of support.
Councillor Eddie Dogan, who played for Bangor during the 1950s, said: "We must all get behind Bangor City, the supporters and the community as a whole, we must get this new ground.
"People who love Bangor City would love to stay at Farrar Road but it is not realistic unless we can find 2m to improve the ground. Therefore, we need this new ground to progress and I want Gwynedd to back us on this.
"I would ask fans to write in to the council or even turn up at the meeting. Let's get behind the club."
Bangor City chairman Ken Jones said: "We need this move to develop Bangor City Football Club.
"We are a top three League of Wales side and we regularly play in Europe. But in comparison with other European teams we play, our facilities are shocking."
Under the application, the Farrar Road ground would be demolished and replaced with a supermarket.
Meanwhile, the football team would be relocated to a new stadium beside the university's George buildings, off Holyhead Road.
The ground would include a 600-seat stand and floodlights.
