Over the last year, Nantporth has been embraced as the home of Bangor 1876 by players, officials and fans. Thanks to a group of students from Coleg Menai, it will now feel even more like home.
The students on Coleg Menai’s Art Foundation Course have created a vivid mural in the home changing room in what is due to be the first of a series of projects in collaboration with Bangor 1876. Course leader Owein Prendergast has explained how the fantastic design was created:
“It was set as a group project for the graphic design students, and feedback was received from some fans, the team, and manager Michael Johnston. The mural was completed in a day and a half with the aim being to have it ready for Saturday’s home game against Caersws. The students gained hugely from this project and we look forward to working with 1876 again in the near future.”
Bangor 1876 chairman Glynne Roberts has expressed his pleasure at what the students have managed to produce:
“Bangor 1876 are delighted to have worked in partnership with Coleg Menai on this project, This is a high quality art project that will stand the test of time. Having our home dressing room designed like this will hopefully inspire the team. We would like to send our heartfelt thanks to the students for completing such an amazing task.”
Our manager Michael Johnston echoed these sentiments, saying that “the transformation is amazing” and that “the players and coaches are extremely grateful for the hard work from Owein and his students that has gone into the designing and the painting”.
We would like to place on record our gratitude to Coleg Menai and their students and are delighted to be welcoming them to our game at home to Caersws this weekend.
