“I WANT TO DO IT FOR OUR FANS AND THE TOWN OF LLANGEFNI” says manager Chris Roberts.

A message from your gaffer!


“I want to do it for our fans and the town of Llangefni” says manager Chris Roberts.

To be in the last 16 of the Welsh cup is fantastic and a real credit to the hard work everyone at the club has put in. I am a Llangefni lad and when i first took over as manager of my hometown football club i said that i wanted to take the club back up the leagues and give the people of Llangefni a football club they can be proud of. Getting a win on Saturday would mean everything to me and i want to do it for our fans and the people of Llangefni.

Confidence is high amongst the players and staff and we know the importance of working as a team an getting the basics right on Saturday if we are to get anything out of this game. No-one expected us to beat Llanelli in the last round, but we did and in truth we could have won by more than 1-0. We will go into the game full of belief and once again give it everything we’ve got. I believe in my players and fully expect us to give Llandudno a good game, we know it will be a tough test but one we are all looking forward to.

These sort of games are the ones you always want to be involved in, to face another Welsh Premier league side is why clubs like us enter the JD Welsh Cup. Llandudno are not getting the rub of the green at present but have also shown how good they can be in the two games against Caernarfon over Christmas so we know it will be another tough test for us and that we will need to be at our best if we are to get anything out of the game.

I have done a lot of work on Llandudno in the build up to this game having been to watch them a few times and spoken to a few people, we will be fully prepared come kick off.

The supporters turned out in numbers for the last round and having been stopped on the streets by some of our fans over the past few weeks i know that they cant wait to come and support us again on Saturday.

So a message to our fans “see you all on Saturday, we appreciate your support and you guys really are the twelfth man. We will give you everything and look to get you the win, cmon the town!!!!

PENALTY SHOOTOUT WIN

20th January 2019

Llangefni Town beat Blaenau Ffestiniog Amateurs 5-4 on penalties to reach the Mawddach Challenge Cup quarter finals, following a tense goalless draw. 


Cefni began on the front foot, with strikers Alan Mark Owen and Mathew Jones missing good scoring opportunities early on, Blaenau looked dangerous on the counter, but their best chance of the half came from a freekick going narrowly wide from 18 yards out.  


A cagey second half followed as Cefni tested Blaenau’s defence with a series of attacks, Mathew Jones thought he opened the scoring on 51 minutes, with his shot hitting the crossbar from 20 yards out.   Moments later, Liam Morris had a great chance at the far post following great work from Cai Powell-Roberts down the right.  


On 70 minutes, good interchanging play by Blaenau and a through ball to Ian Roberts who found him through on goal, only to be denied by a great save from Liam Ewing in Cefni’s goal.  5 minutes later, it was the turn of Gethin Jones in goal for Blaenau to pull off the save of the match from a thunderbolt shot by Sean Pritchard.  


Llangefni had the better of extra-time  Alan Mark Owen shot going  wide from 5 yards, but penalties felt inevitable, and when they came the Town did not disappoint scoring all of their penalties. Goalkeeper Liam Ewing took the plaudits, saving one of the penalties to clinch victory.


Next up is the big one, on Saturday 26 January v Llandudno FC at home in the JD Welsh Cup last 16.   Kickoff is 2:30.

Cameron Jones opened the scoring after 10 minutes finding the top corner with a superb half volley from the edge of the box. Sion Jones and Aaron Rickards had chances to double Cefni’s advantage but Rickards made no mistake just before half-time when he latched on to goalkeeper Owen Hughes kick and placed the ball in the bottom corner. Rickards scored his second and Llangefni’s 3rd early in the second half from the penalty spot and Cameron Jones made it 4-0 with a tap in after a good cross from Tomos Hughes.

6th January 2019

2-1 win v Llanberis

An Alan Mark Owen bullet header gave Llangefni Town a 2-1 win at home to Llanberis in the Welsh Alliance league.  


Cefni made two changes from last week, Andy Sinclair and Harry Galeotti starting instead of the injured Liam Morris and Dan Thomas who was suspended.  


Llangefni started the encounter brightly with almost constant presence in the’ Llanberis half in the opening five minutes, but clearances from the visitors defence ensured keeper Louis Williams went untested.


The first real chance of the match came on 30 minutes, Cefni putting pressure on, with Harry Galeotti beating his man on the left wing to send a cross glancing across the goalmouth, but none of Llangefni’s attackers were there to capitalise.  


One of the best chances of the half fell to Alun Roberts just before the break, when a deep cross landed at Roberts feet, who sent a shot just over from inside the six yard box.


Cefni were enjoying the lion’s share of possession, but the well set up defence of the visitors kept the game goalless at halftime. 


On 51 minutes following some intense pressure from Llangefni, Llanberis winger Ifan Mansoon on the counter was through on goal, only for Steve Sinclair to be out of his blocks early to sweep from outside his area.  


On the hour, Galeotti cut in from the left wing to send a cross in for Andy Sinclair head in Llangefni’s opener.  1-0. ( PICTURED) 


Cefni’s lead was to be short lived, a penalty was awarded for Llanberis on 70 minutes. David Jones stepped up and drove a low effort into the bottom left corner of the net ensuring the scores were level once again. 1-1. 


Llanberis equaliser was short lived, 2 minutes later, Andy Sinclair now the provider sent a cross from deep met Alan Mark Owen’s run from outside the area to riffle in his header into the back of the net from 12 yards out.  2-1.  


The Town battled through the reminder of the match to secure a well fought three points at full time.

Goalless draw away to Greenfield

Llangefni Town played out a 0-0 draw away to Greenfield who remain unbeaten at home this season. 


Manager Chris Roberts made three changes to the side that beat Penrhyndeudraeth, with Gari Owen, Jack Williams and James Saxon starting.  


The match first real chance fell to  Llangefni on 15 minutes, with Matthew Jones beating his defender, he ran into the area, squared the ball to Craig Roberts who finished well to open the scoring, only for the goal to be ruled out for offside. 


A minute later, Steve Sinclair in Llangefni’s goal was called into action with a fine save from a 25 yard shot.  


Llangefni were enjoying a lot of possession in the Greenfield half, on 37 minutes, good work between Cai Powell-Roberts and Mathew Jones to Liam Morris through on goal with his shot saved by Danny Statnton in Greenfield’s goal.  


Moments later Llangefni saw another good opportunity to score, good counter attacking play when Morris beat his man, ran down the wing, cut inside and sent a great shot only to be denied once again by Stanton.  


Despite continuing to control the game, Cefni were forced to settle with a goalless scoreline at the interval.


Greenfield enjoyed a bright start when play recommenced, hitting the bar twice inside the first 5 minutes and forcing a couple of good saves from Sinclair in Cefni’s goal.


The game had an end to end feeling to it, but Llangefni were dealt a blow, when Daniel Thomas, who was solid at the back and had been a constant danger at set pieces, was shown a second yellow and subsequent red card for a mistimed tackle.


The ten men Cefni were then left to try and break the deadlock with the final stages approaching. They attacked via Callum

McMinimee, who crossed to Jones, whose header glanced across the Greenfield goal mouth before going out.


On 88 minutes, Harry Galeotti made a surging run down the wing and into the Greenfield area, but was tackled before he could deliver the ball into the six yard box where Cefni had men waiting.


Neither side could find a late winner, with referee Peter Kewly’ whistle confirming a 0-0 draw at full time.


The result keeps Cefni second in the Welsh Alliance League. Next up is Llanberis at home in the league. Saturday, 5 January.  2:30 kick off
