COLWYN Bay have filled the void left by their postponed JD Cymru North opener against Bangor City.

The Seagulls’ announced that Wrexham U18s will visit the Four Crosses Construction Arena this Saturday, which has been hastily arranged after the Football Association of Wales suspended the Citizens’ until their arbitration hearing and up to seven days after any formal ruling.

This has significantly hampered Craig Hogg’s planning for their return to the Welsh domestic system following a 35-years absence, with Bay’s first game now expected to be on August 23 at home to title rivals Flint Town United.

The friendly fixture will kick-off at 12pm and the club are offering free admission for those wishing to attend.

Due to a previously booked private function, the club lounge will be closed but refreshments will be available from the canteen.

As reported by the Chronicle last week, clubs that would be affected by any formal conclusion to the long-running saga have also had their fixtures suspended, with Holywell Town and Llandyrnog United also finding out their short-term fate at the same time.

A Bangor City spokesman stated that chairman/manager Stephen Vaughan Jr will “continue to prepare for the season ahead” whilst awaiting the outcome of the hearing.

Hogg’s side took part in their first competitive fixture on domestic soil this season on Sunday, falling to a narrow 1-0 reverse at Gresford Athletic in the Nathaniel MG Cup first round.
