RESERVES SEASON REVIEW BY GAFYN BUCKLAND

16th May 2017

With most of the squad playing their first season of senior football, I knew this was going to be a tough campaign in the Welsh Alliance Reserve League. The standard of opposition was improved by the likes of Bangor City, Caernarfon Town and Prestatyn Town Reserves replacing Meliden, Blaeanu Ffestioniog and Porthmadog Reserves. I had no problem at all with this and relished the opportunity to play against the best young teams in our area. This is why we joined the league, so that our youngsters could play against the best teams on the best pitches and develop their game far more than they would against the teams that are left in the Anglesey League. In the first half of the season we struggled to compete physically against more experienced teams but I'd say the only times we've been played off the park is against the top 2 away from home and Caernarfon away in September. Our first win came in October at home against Llandudno Junction who were third at the time. The difference for me that day was having Corey Sinnott in the team. His quality and experience made a massive difference and the other players who look up to him really enjoyed playing alongside him. The second half of the season produced much better performances with the players having had a good 6 months to adapt to senior football. As the manager, I had to be patient and encourage the lads even after suffering a heavy defeat because I knew we had the quality and it wouldn't be long before results improved. Our last 9 games saw us win 4, draw 3 and lose 2. Our biggest win came at Trearddur Bay who were 3-1 up with half an hour to go but we showed a lot of character that day and ended up winning 6-3. Despite the improvement, I'm still disappointed with our final league position and although we were close to finishing above another couple of teams, we really should have done better overall. I thinks it's very important to keep this squad together and with a few quality additions I'm sure we'll be challenging at the other end of the table next season. A big positive for me was that four 16 year olds played for the first team and another two made the squad. Chris Roberts has shown in the past that if you're good enough, you're old enough and he will give players a chance. Then it's up to the players to show the right attitude and grab the opportunity with both hands. I would like to thank Gerald, Vince and Trystan for their help and I can't wait for pre-season to start as I'm already bored, roll on June!             

Llangefni Town 4 - 0 St Asaph

14th May 2017

Llangefni finished the season equal on points and goal difference with Llandudno Junction, but lost out on the Welsh Alliance league runners up and the possibility of promotion by goals scored. 

Llangefni, knowing that they needed to beat Junctions score by three goals got off to the best possible start going 2 - 0 up inside the first quarter of an hour with goals from Iwan Jones and Jack Williams. The Town continued to dominate the half but were unable to increase their lead against a stubborn Saint defence.  

The second half continued in the same manner, Cefni knew more goals were needed due to the fact Junction were 2-0 up. On 67 minutes, Matthew Jones made it 3-0 finishing off great move and Jones made it 4-0 on 75th minute setting up an exciting finish in front of a bumper crowd at Talwrn Road. Llangefni pushed everything forward in search of the 5th goal, with 10 minutes to go, the inform Craig Roberts found himself through on goal but was brought down by a saints defender, everyone in the ground apart from the man with a whistle thought it was a penalty, such a season defining decision wasn't given. Great result, even better performance ended in disappointment when the result of Junctions match came through.

What a great season, fantastic achievement by the players, management and all involved behind the scenes, it shows how far we've come. We wish to thank our supporters and the continued support of our sponsors.  

The race for runners up

12th May 2017

The race for runners up

We are currently joint second with Llandudno Junction and Llanrug United, there is a strong possibility it will go down to goal difference for the runners up spot.

Llandudno Junction are currently on +30, Llangefni Town +28 and Llanrug Utd  +27. Llandudno Junction Play Llanrug United.

A big win against St Asaph tomorrow could see us finish second.

LLANGEFNI TOWN 10-1 GLAN CONWY

11th May 2017

With a second place finish still a possibility, Cefni needed a big win to boost their goal difference against Glan Conwy at Lon Talwrn last night. Top scorer Craig Roberts opened the scoring with a header and soon smashed in his second but Glan Conwy's goalkeeper was in fine form and his saves as well as Cefni being wasteful kept the scoreline down. The visitors took advantage of a lack of concentration to pull a goal back before half-time. Llangefni needed to be more clinical in the second half and it wasn't long before the floodgates opened. Craig Roberts helped himself to another 3 goals while Matthew Jones looked back to his old self, grabbing 4 goals. Iwan Jones scored from the penalty spot and the game ended 10-1. We no longer have to depend on the result of the Llandudno Junction v Llanrug match. Our much improved goal difference means a big win against St Asaph on Saturday should see us finish second.

ST ASAPH CITY 2-2 LLANGEFNI TOWN

8th May 2017

Llangefni's hopes of finishing second suffered a blow after drawing 2-2 away to St Asaph on Saturday. Jake Walker gave the home side the lead from close range after six minutes. Cefni's response was very positive but  Iwan Jones, Craig Evans and Corey Williams missed good chances to score before half-time. Llangefni continued to dominate the game and their perseverance payed off when Craig Evans lobbed the on rushing goalkeeper to equalise on 53 minutes. Corey Williams made it 2-1 a minute later when he found the bottom far corner with a superb finish. Cefni looked in complete control and likely to score another when out of nowhere a St Asaph free-kick was diverted in to his own net by Craig Roberts. It was a moment to forget for Llangefni's top scorer who's had a very good season with the club. The visitors kept going and threw everything at the opposition but were unable to get the winner and the game ended 2-2. We now need Llandudno Junction and Llanrug to draw when they play each other on Saturday or we need to score a lot of goals in our last two games to have a better goal difference than both teams.
