1st Bangor lifted the Ards Borough Trophy for the first time in their history on Monday 5th August as they battled to a 3-2 win over Rosemount in the final at Drome Park.
After a blistering start with goals from Danny McKee (2) and Michael Corkum, 1st Bangor saw themselves deservedly 3-0 up at half-time and seemingly in cruise control. However Rosemount fought back and put 1st Bangor firmly on the back foot with 2 goals setting up a grandstand finish. Fortunately though 1st Bangor dug in and saw out the win to see them pick up the first piece of silverwear in the season.
The real business starts this Saturday when 1st Bangor open their league campaign with a tricky away tie to Saintfield. Best of luck to all involved.
