Andy Legg: New manager braced for Bangor City 'challenge'

Andy Legg says reviving Bangor City's fortunes will be a challenge after being appointed the Welsh Premier League side's new manager.

The ex-Wales international has succeeded Neville Powell, who was sacked after nine years in charge.

Bangor finished ninth last term so Legg says there is plenty of work to do.

"The last two years they've failed to finish in the top six and that's the challenge I'll have on my hands this year," he said.

"Bangor's always been a big club in the Welsh Premier and are probably the most well supported club in the league.

"It takes time to put a team together and takes time to sort things out, but we'll go in there with the best intentions and do our best.

"As long as we can compete and challenge, hopefully we can get into the top six this year and then progress to next year."

Bangor won their third Welsh Premier League title in 2010-11, but The New Saints have won the title for the past five seasons.

Legg believes Craig Harrison's side face a challenge to hold on to their crown this season.

"I think the league is getting tighter and I think Connah's Quay will be great rivals to TNS," Legg told BBC Radio Wales Sport.

"Andy Morrison's gone in there and done a great job and it's going to be difficult for TNS, who will have more of a competition this year than in recent years."
