JD WELSH CUP GLORY

9th December 2018

JD WELSH CUP GLORY

Llangefni Town progressed to the last 16 of the JD Welsh Cup following their impressive one goal to nil win against JD Welsh Premier oppositions Llanelli Town.

 

Alan Mark Owen’s goal in the 21st minute was enough to give Llangefni an impressive win in the much anticipated fixture in-front of a bumper Talwrn Road crowd.    

 

The visitors came into the fixture full of confidence, having picked up some impressive results recently. Meanwhile, Llangefni had midfielder Chris Saxon out suspended and top scorer Kevin Lloyd out with an injury.  Craig Roberts started for Cefni forming a vital part of their well-organised set up in midfield with captain James Saxon and Steve Kehoe.  

 

Chris Jones, Jordan Follows and former Swansea City player James Loveridge started in attack for Llanelli who were looking to avoid a cup upset.  

 

The game started with Cefni on the front foot, with three corner kicks  forced by the home side inside the opening 10 minutes. A corner kick created Cefni’s first major chance in the sixth minute, with Dan Thomas nearly connecting with Liam Morris’ delivery.  

 

James Saxon got an excellent chance on 11 minutes with his shot going straight to the hands of Oliver Davies in goal for Llanelli. 

 

Llanelli began to hit back, with James Loveridge breaking through on goal in the 18th minute only to be ruled out by the offside flag.

 

In the 21st minute Llanelli again had to deal with Cefni’s pressure, as Kurtis March blocked a Liam Morris effort from the edge of the area. From the resulting corner, a flick on to the far post to Alan Mark Owen to smash in the opener from 3 yards out to send the home crowd wild.  (  PICTURED)

 

Moments from the restart it was Alan Mark Owen once again through on goal, to force a brilliant save off Davies in goal.  

 

The encounter began to have an end to end feel to it, Llanelli keeping possession well but struggling to break down the formidable Cefni defence, before Follows found himself in the final third, sending an attempt on goal just wide.

 

Llangefni continued to create chances right up until the interval, with a Alan Mark Owen’s shot from 20 yards out on 43 minutes hitting the post.  

 

Llanelli went close in the 57th minute, with Jamie Owen getting to the edge of the six yard box only to send his effort over Steve Sinclair’s goal.

 

In the 69th minute Llanelli Town again went close, with Michael George sending a chipped ball glancing across the face of goal only for the ball to be cleared off the line by Gari Owen. 

 

Cai Powell-Roberts then showed some great skill in the Llanelli area, beating his defender before sending a tight angled effort just wide.

 

From a long, bounding ball, Alan Mark Owen beat Llanelli one remaining defender to go one on one to slot the ball past the Llanelli keeper on an angle from around 12 yards, only for his second of the match to be disallowed by the offside flag.  

 

Cefni then made changes as they looked to consolidate their lead, as Cai Powell-Roberts and the experienced Craig Roberts departed in place for Sean Pritchard and Marvin Pritchard.

 

The visitors were becoming frustrated as Cefni kept on blocking their offensive moves with time beginning to run out. 

 

Cefni were still looking for a second to seal the win in the 82nd minute, when Liam Morris ran into the area where he was beaten by Davies just before getting a shot away.

 

Four additional minutes were awarded by the fourth official, but Cefni saw these through with professional vigour as Steve Sinclair repeatedly collected aerial attacks from Llanelli.

 

Full time was confirmed by referee, with a crowd of over 300 congratulating Cefni for their efforts to secure the memorable victory.

 

Match highlight can be seen on Sgorio, 5:30pm tomorrow night (Minday, 10 December. The last 16 draw can be seen live on Heno, 7pm.  

 

 

We move onto our next game on Wednesday 12 December, at home against Mynydd Llandygai. 7:30pm kick off.

RESERVES SCORE LATE WINNER AGAINST LLANRWST

3rd December 2018

Leon Buckland’s 89th minute winner secured 3 points for Cefni against Llanrwst Reserves at Treborth on Friday night. Llangefni took the lead half way through the first half when Leon played a through ball to Nathan Hughes who calmly slotted the ball low past the keeper. Llanrwst equalised on the hour with a close range header. Llangefni upped their game and created chance after chance before the winner eventually came late on when Leon Buckland found space on the right and found the bottom far corner with a low drive. It was a good performance by the youngsters who are are adapting well in a very tough and competitive reserve division.

Lock Stock Cookson Cup success

2nd December 2018

Lock Stock Cookson Cup success

After suffering our first defeat of the season on Wednesday night it was key for The Town to bounce back with a victory, and bounce back we did.........just!

The Town came out of the blocks well and took to the pitch but with only 8 minutes on the clock a error in defence allowed Albion to go in front with a neat finish. 4 minutes later the good possession counted as Liam Morris got on the end of a great cross from Cai-Powell Roberts 1-1. Possession seemed to be 50/50 after the equaliser and Steve Sinclair had to come out and make a couple of tackles and later a fumble in the box saw the ball fall kindly into Sinclairs hands. First 45min ended 1-1 and it was all to play for!

Second half and again Llangefni started well and with a long ball and Lloyd through  on goal but for the Albion keeper to grab the ball a yard out of his box to stop a clear goal it must have been a red right? Not today only a yellow! But Iwan Jones made sure we had some justice as he converted the resulting free-kick 2-1 The Town. Somehow Chris Saxon received a yellow card for a perfectly timed tackle and then on 62min he lashed out in frustration and received a second yellow resulting in him being sent off The Town down to 10 men for the second time this week. Soon though it was going to be 3-1 as Kevin Lloyd eagle eyed saw the keeper off his line and from the half way line somehow found the back of the net! What a strike and what a goal! ( KEV LLOYD PICTURED CELEBRATING HIS GOAL )  Albion then pressed and 4 minutes later brought the score line down to 3-2 and then deep into what seemed to be an eternity of injury time they found a equaliser making it 3-3.

Extra time saw no goals although Albion thought they scored but for the referee to disagree that the ball had crossed the line so the quarter final would have to be decided on penalties where The Town took it 6-5!

Next up for Llangefni Town is Welsh premier league side Llanelli Town AFC in the JD Welsh Cup next Saturday!  #cmonthetown #cpdllangefnifc

UNBEATEN RUN ENDED

28th November 2018

Llangefni’s impressive unbeaten start to the season shuddered to a dramatic halt tonight as the Welsh Alliance leaders lost 2-1 at home to title rivals Llanrug United.

 

As perhaps expected, it was Llangefni who saw most of the possession in the opening stages of the match with the first real chance of the game landing to Steve Kehoe who’s shot from outside the area going narrowly wide following good work from Matthew Jones and Liam Morris. Matthew Jones was involved again on 23 minutes, his freekick from deep confused everyone and went straight in to open the scoring for Llangefni. 1-0

 

On 35 minutes, a missed placed pass put Gavin Lloyd-Jones through on goal for the visitors, only to be taken down in the box by Cefni’s keeper Liam Ewing. A penalty was awarded with Ewing receiving his marching orders (although there was a genuine attempt for the ball and the triple punishment rule being ignored by the referee). Jonathan Sadler converted the penalty with his second attempt (first attempt was missed, linesman flagged for some reason for it to be retaken) to equalise for the visitors. 1-1.

 

On 54 minutes, Llanrug took the lead, the ball falling to substitute Aaron Hughes who’s shot from outside the area flew over the stand in keeper to the top corner of the net. 1-2. The reminder of the match was all about Cefni trying to equalise, getting plenty of possession with chances limited. Llanrug were always looking dangerous to extend their lead on the counter. Llion Jones received a red card for his second bookable offence in the last 10 minutes of the match, but soon after Cefni were down to 9 men following an injury to Jack Williams.   

 

Next up we are away to Llandudno Albion – 2.30pm kick off (first away match since 25 August 2018). And the following weekend is the big one in front of the cameras against Llanelli Town. 8 December, 2.30 kick off.

 

 

 

 

A WORD FROM THE GAFFER

25th November 2018

We cought-up with the gaffer after yesterday’s match, here is what he had to say.  

 

“I think it was a game of two halves to be honest, we dominated the first half and could have gone in at half time 2 or 3 up if we would have taken our chances. We saw a lot of possession in the first half and moved the ball well, they didn’t really cause us any problems at the back with only a free kick and a corner kick really asking us any questions. The second half was the opposite i thought where Brymbo had the better chances and saw a lot of possession, I feel we could have done more in terms of keeping the ball but on the whole a great win to get us in the hat for the next round and continue our unbeaten start to 17 games. I thought Brymbo were by far the best side we have faced this season and wish them all the best for the rest of the season”

FAW TROPHY: LLANGEFNI PROGRESS INTO THE LAST 16

25th November 2018

FAW TROPHY: LLANGEFNI PROGRESS INTO THE LAST 16

Llangefni Town progressed through to the last 16 of the FAW Trophy with  a hard fought, well earned 1-0 win over Brymbo who currently sits second in the Welsh National League Premier Division.  

 

Manager Chris Roberts made 5 changes to the side that beat Prestatyn Sports last week, with Sean Pritchard, Steve Kehoe, Craig Roberts, Chris Saxon and Iwan Jones all starting.  


The hosts started on the front foot, Saxon spreading the ball wide to Pritchard, his first time cross to  Kevin Lloyd who squandered excellent opportunity to put the Town ahead quarter of an hour in. 


Jake Prescott fashioned the visitors' first real chance on 20 minutes but he snapped at the chance on the edge of the box and ballooned it high and wide. Moment later, a excellent cross by Jordan Deer to the path of Ben Kearney, a brilliant interception by Jack Williams to deny the visitors a clear scoring opportunity.  


The home side finally took the lead shortly before half time, Cai Powell-Roberts cross to Iwan Jones( PICTURED) at the far post who guided his header to the far corner of the net.  


Brymbo started the second half in positive fashion, but despite enjoying plenty of the ball, chances were at a premium. 


Cefni had a great chance to extend their lead on the hour, a drilled ball across the box from Iwan Jones looked dangerous, but Cefni’s Matthew Jones couldn’t get on the end of it.


A clever touch from Jordan Deer, released the ball in the penalty area but the Brymbo’s strikers were not on the same wavelength and the opportunity was wasted.


The hosts had the chance to seal victory when Matthew Jones ran half the pitch on the break, only to see his shot saved by Declan Morgan.


Brymbo knocked on the door again with three corners in quick succession, two of which forced Cefni’s keeper Sinclair to tip the ball behind.


However, Llangefni saw the remainder out to register their 16th consecutive win. Next up is Llanrug home on Wednesday night, 7:30 kickoff. On Saturday we visit Llandudno Albion.  

RESERVES PROVE A POINT IN CONWY

25th November 2018

Our reserves came away with a point after drawing 1-1 against Conwy Borough Reserves on Friday night. It was a very good performance that deserved all 3 points after dominating most of the game and creating several clear cut chances. Conwy who’s side included 2 first team squad members Iolo Hughes and Tom Creamer took the lead after 20 minutes but Tomos Hughes equalised 5 minutes before half time with a superb first time finish at the far post after a good cross from Keenan Latham. Latham and 16 year old Leon Buckland had good chances to win it for Cefni in the second half but were denied by the keeper who pulled off a stunning save from a Sion Jones header in injury time to deny what would have been a well deserved victory for the youngsters. Next up for the reserves are Llanrwst who travel to Lon Talwrn on Friday night, 7.30 kick off.

DEPLETED RESERVES LAMBS TO THE SLAUGHTER AGAINST A STRONGER THAN USUAL PRESTATYN

21st November 2018

Llangefni Town Reserves travelled to Prestatyn on Saturday knowing they’d be in for a tough afternoon. A total of 9 players were unavailable due to the international fixture and injuries/illness, while Prestatyn’s first team and all other teams had very sensibly been given a free weekend by the Cymru Alliance, so they had the luxury of fielding a number of first team squad members in this game. Cefni found themselves 3-0 down by half-time, and unfortunately the floodgates well and truly opened up in the second half as Prestatyn added another 5 goals to their tally to make the final score 8-0. Last season’s Welsh Alliance 2 top scorer Matthew Griffiths helped himself to a hat-trick and Llangefni’s youngsters naivety was cruelly exposed by an unforgiving and relentless front 3.

This Friday the reserves will be looking to give a better account of themselves as they travel to Conwy, 7.30pm kick off.
