18th September 2018

Llangefni Town Reserves paly their first game at home against Conwy Borough Reserves tomorrow night after they had to play their first 5 games away from home due to ground maintenance being carried out at Lon Talwrn. It's been a tough start for the youngsters but they've competed in every game and Saturdays match at Llanrug could have gone either way before a couple of late goals sealed a 4-2 victory for the home side.

This team is full of potential and really needs the whole club and the town to get behind them, so we would really appreciate your support tomorrow night. Kick off is 7.30pm.       

THE TOWN WIN IN LOCAL DERBY

16th September 2018

THE TOWN WIN IN LOCAL DERBY

Llangefni Town progressed through to the 3rd round of the FAW Trophy with a 3 - 0 win over local rivals Gaerwen.  Manager Chris Roberts made seven changes to the side that beat Greenfield last week, with Liam Ewing, Andy Sinclair, Steve Kehoe, Liam Morris, Paul Rowlands, Iwan Jones and Marvin Pritchard all starting.  

 
In an evenly contested first half Matthew Jones came the closest to opening the scoring on 30 minutes with his looping shot from 20 yards rebounding off the crossbar. Dan Thomas eventually gave Cefni the lead on the stroke of half time, towering above Gaerwen’s defence to head home his 3rd goal of the season.       ( Pictured )

 

Former Gaerwen striker Liam Morris doubled Cefni's lead on 55 minutes, beating his man to finish well from 12 yards. With just ten minutes remaining substitute Alan Mark Owen sealed the win for the Town with a tap in at the far post following good work from Marvin Pritchard.

We caught up with the manager after the game:

“We always knew that Gaerwen would up their game coming to Lon Talwrn and that was the case today. We found it hard to get going in the opening 45 minutes and were wasteful in possession. A few harsh words were said to the players at half time and i felt that we came out in the second half much better, moving the ball well and with a quick tempo to our play. We made 7 changes to the team that started in the league last weekend and it was good to give a few players coming back from injury etc some minutes. All in all a poor performance but another win to keep our unbeaten run going and we progress into the next round.”

PWLLHELI RES 2-2 LLANGEFNI T RES

10th September 2018

Llangefni Town Reserves came away from Pwllheli with a point after a tough battle against a good side. Cefni took the lead after 35 minutes when Aaron Rickards finished off the best move of the match with a low drive into the bottom far corner. Pwllheli responded with 2 goals just before half-time and went in 2-1 up at the break. The home side dominated the first 15 minutes of the second half but the visitors got some last ditch tackles and blocks in to ensure they didn't fall further behind. After soaking up the pressure, Nathan Hughes made it 2-2 by cutting inside and curling a shot into the top corner from 25 yards. Llangefni gained confidence from this and could easily have won the game but the goalkeeper pulled off some good saves, including a point blank effort from Cameron Jones 2 minutes from time. The team will be delighted to earn their first point of the season and will now look to kick on from this away against Llanrug Utd Reserves on Saturday, 2.30 kick off.

Llangefni Town 4 - 2 Greenfield

9th September 2018


Three goals in the last 10 minutes capped a resilient Llangefni display as they fought back from 2-1 down to beat Greenfield 4-2 at Talwrn Road.

This was a match that Cefni should have put to bed in the first half, creating enough chances to win two matches and hitting the woodwork 5 times.  


Two changes from the side that beat Llandyrnog last week, Craig Roberts and Matthew Jones starting ahead of attackers Liam Morris and Alan Owen. 


Matthew Jones came closest to opening the scoring when he latched onto Powell-Roberts speculative ball on 9 minutes, but dragged his effort wide from eight yards. Moments later, Kevin Lloyd shaped up to shoot from 25-yards out and sent his effort onto the crossbar.  


Jones gave Cefni the lead on the half hour, getting in between Greenfield’s centre half to head in Lloyd’s cross giving the home side a deserved 1-0 lead. 


Cefni had the chance to kill the game on 49 minutes; first Sean Pritchard saw his shot blocked from James Saxon’s square ball before Kev Lloyd’s effort was deflected wide.


On 60 minutes, Greenfield were awarded a penalty for a push on Daniel Sim.  Danny Calvert stepped up to equalise making the score 1-1.   


The match became more of a battle with Greenfield choosing to up their physical game. They began to win the midfield battles and played some good passing football that caused more than one flashpoint.


Good work from Mark Johnson on 74 minutes, opened up Cefni’s defence, a through ball from Calvert to Sean Beck who was through on goal but was brought down by keeper Steve Sinclair. Another penalty for Greenfield converted by Calvert making it 2-1 for the visitors.  


The home side did not panic and showed excellent character to bounce back.  On 79 minutes, a fine shot by left back Jack Williams equalised and few minutes later, Lloyd got the ball inside the 18 yard box, his back to goal, a back heel through ball to Williams who delivered a brilliant ball to substitute Iwan Jones at the back post who scored from 6 yards out to make it 3-2. 


It wasn’t over, Greenfield pushed everything forward and on 90 minutes gained a corner.  The corner was dealt with by the Cefni’s defence, a long ball found Lloyd who shrugged off his man and had only the keeper to beat, but was pulled down by the last man who was luck to stay on the pitch.  The third penalty of the match was converted by Lloyd giving Llangefni the 4-2 win in this thrilling match.   


Next up is a local derby match v Gaerwen in the FA Wales Trophy match. 2:30 kickoff 

GROUNDHOG DAY FOR RESERVES AT KINMEL BAY

4th September 2018

Llangefni Town Reserves lost 5-2 for the second week running as they were once again beaten by an older, physical side on a very narrow field. It's hard to believe Cefni lost the game based on possession and chances created but defending long balls and long throws are a part of the game and failing to deal with them is proving very costly at the moment. Kinmel Bay Reserves could hardly believe their luck as they went in 4-0 up at half-time. Every shot on goal seemed to go in for the home team while the visitors missed chance after chance.

The message at half-time was keep playing football and the goals will come. We challenged them to win the second half and the lads did exactly that. Goals from Luke Waller and Gafyn Buckland ensured Llangefni finished the game on a high. Nobody's panicking about the results, we know this team has a lot of potential and we firmly believe the results will improve once the team adapts to the physical side of senior football. On Saturday we travel to Pwllheli, 2.30pm kick off.

Llangefni Town 3 - 0 Llandyrnog United

2nd September 2018

Llangefni Town 3 - 0 Llandyrnog United

Goals from Kev Lloyd, Liam Morris and midfielder Sean Pritchard   ( Pictured)   made this victory as comfortable as the scoreline suggests - with Llangefni swaggering to victory against a Llandyrnog United side who just weren’t in their class.


Alun Roberts back in defence was the only change from last Saturday, the Town took control of the game straight from the off with a display full of good, passing football.


Alan Owen had the game's first chance on 11 minutes, his placed header well-handled by Llandyrnog keeper after a deep cross from Gari Owen.


Cefni’s patient build up play served them well, winning a number of free-kick’s from which Alan Owen and Liam Morris had efforts deflected wide. Dan Thomas then went close from one of the resultant corners, shooting wide of Llandyrnog left-hand post.


On 27 minutes, Liam Morris through ball found its way to Kevin Lloyd who rounded the keeper, was about to shoot into the empty net but was pulled down from behind.  Penalty was awarded, but for some reason the referee decided to give out a yellow card for what should have been a blatant red.  Kev Lloyd, got up to score the penalty to give Llangefni a deserved 1-0 lead.  


On 36 minutes, it was 2-0, good work down the right by Cai Powell-Roberts, his cross finding Liam Morris who’s shot found its way into the bottom right hand corner through a crowd of players. It could have been two moments later, Powell-Roberts causing panic in the United defence, but his shot just failing to find a way through Harri Owen in Llandyrnog’s goal. 


The second half continued in much the same vain with Llangefni looking bright and confident every time they came forward with the ball. It felt at times like a training match and the most the visitors had to offer were a couple of balls into the box, but these were dealt with easily by the the ultra-consistent Sinclair in Cefni’s goal.  


The third goal came on 64 minutes, Cefni keeping possession really well, good interchanging passes, Alan Owen laying the ball off to Sean Pritchard to fire home.  ( Pictured )

Llangefni should have extended their lead further, with Jack Williams smashing the upright with a 25 yard shot and Matthew Jones also hitting the bar missing an open goal from 12 yard out.  


After the match, manager Chris Roberts said; ‘It was a good day at the office, although the scoreline should have been more I was satisfied with the teams performance and how comfortable the win was. Our first home game of the season, there was a great atmosphere and buzz at the ground and it was excellent to have our under 8s as our mascots and the Majorettes performing at half time’.  


Next up is Greenfield at home next Saturday. Kickoff 2:30.
