Bangor's route to the final took seven games, with their first against Llandudno Swifts being forced into extra time. Bangor travelled to the venue of that year's final to face the 'Swifts', where drawing the game 2–2 after 90 minutes, Bangor won 3–2 in extra time.
In the second round, Bangor received a bye into the third, due to no teams being close enough to travel to, and there they welcomed Westminster Rovers to their Maes y Dre field. Another draw, 1–1, after 90 minutes the game was replayed at Westminster, where Bangor won 3–1.
In the Fourth Round, Bangor once again draw 1–1, this time against Wellington St George. The game was replayed, once again at Maes y Dre.
