Bangor City swoop to sign striker Alex Darlington from The New Saints

Bangor City have confirmed the signing of The New Saints striker Alex Darlington on a two-year deal.

The 29-year-old played a pivotal part in the Saints recent Nathaniel MG Cup win over Cardiff Metropolitan University by assisting Jamie Mullan for the goal.

It brings to an end, a ten-year involvement between Darlington and the Saints, having arrived at Park Hall back in 2008, having been rejected from Wrexham.

He racked up six Welsh Premier League titles and four Welsh Cups and was part of the New Saints side that entered the record books for most consecutive victories.

His last involvement with the club was in The New Saints’ 3-1 victory over Caernarfon Town in Round Four of the JD Welsh Cup.


Forward James Demetriou left Bangor City earlier today for Barry Town United, which has freed up space for Darlington to join the Citizens.

Darlington is just six goals shy of a century of goals in the JD Welsh Premier League, having played a total of 234 times for the New Saints. He is a former Wales Under-23 semi-professional international and can operate as a striker and a deep-lying-forward.

“Bangor City FC extends a very welcome to Alex at the VSm Bangor Stadium. Croeso i Fangor, Alex!”

He could be in line to make his debut this coming Saturday in front of Bangor’s home faithful. Bangor City returns to Phase Two action by hosting League Cup finalists Cardiff Metropolitan University, at a later kick-off of 16:15.
