HUGHES GOAL SEALS WIN FOR RESERVES

19th September 2019

Williams Hughes' brilliant solo effort was enough to clinch the 3 points for Llangefni Town Reserves in a close game against Nantlle Vale Reserves at Lon Talwrn last night. 16 year old Hughes had only just come on as a second half substitute when he controlled the ball outside the area and then went on a mazy run passed 3 defenders and the keeper before slotting the ball in from a tight angle. Harry Jones and Leon Buckland had good chances to put Llangefni ahead in the first half while Owen Hughes pulled off a couple of great saves at the other end. Luke Waller could have doubled Cefni's advantage late on but his close range shot went inches wide of the post. The visitors were very direct and threw everything but the kitchen sink at Llangefni in search of the equaliser but the youngsters held firm and are now unbeaten in their last 3 games.

NARROW DEFEAT V RIVALS BANGOR CITY

15th September 2019

Llangefni Town suffered a 1-0 defeat against local rivals Bangor City in a tight fought affair in front of packed crowd at Cae Bob Parry. 


A back pass to the keeper was intercepted by Francesco Serefinio who rounded keeper Tyler French to finish well from close angle on 13 minutes to open the scoring for the visitors.  


Keeper Gabriele Brino came to Bangor’s rescue on 30 minutes, a fantastic save from Steve Kehoe’s shot.  From the resulting corner, a free header from Dan Thomas went narrowly over bar.  Brino came to Bangor’s rescue again on 38 minutes. A header from Alun Roberts this time forcing another great save to Brino’s bottom left. 


On 43 minutes, Aldir Neto powerful shot from outside the area was tipped over bar by French.  


Llangefni first chance of second half came to Craig Roberts skying his shot from 15 yards out.  


Although the visitors did enjoy large spells of possession in the second half, Llangefni’s defence held solid and their chances were limited to long range shots that French dealt with comfortably.  


15 minutes from the end, Emmanuel Agyemang Akwa-Dei missed a golden chance to double City's lead when he went through 1 on 1 with French in Cefni’s goal, the effort was saved by the out rushing French.  


Cefni did push on in the final 10 minutes of match in search of equaliser, a series of corners and free kick’s at the edge of the area was dealt with and the match finished 1-0 to Bangor City.  


Next up is high flyers Flint United away in Saturday 21 September.  2:30 kickoff.  

PORTHMADOG 2 - 2 LLANGEFNI TOWN

11th September 2019

Callum McMinimee’s 25 yard thunderbolt, 8 minutes from time salvaged a point for Llangefni in an entertaining 2-2 draw away to Porthmadog.  

Port started the brightest, dominating possession with half chances falling to Iwan Lewis and John Owen. Despite the early pressure by the hosts it was Cefni who went ahead. The pace of Matthew Jones wrong footed the Port defence and a neat exchange of passes to Craig Roberts in space in the box to finish confidently from 12 yards. The lead however was short lived as Port hit back immediately and when a low ball was played into the centre of the box John Owen was on hand to apply the finishing touch from close range. 6 minutes later and Port were ahead, Telor Williams’s cross field pass to John Owen who found Josh Banks out wide on the left. Banks’s accurate cross was met by Mel McGinness, his powerful header found the net from 5 yards. In search of an equaliser before half time, good chances came Llangefni’s way but Port’s keeper Morgan Jones was on guard to push away a Craig Roberts effort and Matthew Jones fired a low, powerful shot but wide of the post.  

A change of formation early in the second half, Llangefni sensed they could get something from the match. They relied mainly on shots from distance and sub Jake Jones fired one over the bar from 18 yards.  Ten minutes from time an excellent cross by Cai Powell-Roberts to Alun Roberts who failed to capitalise on an opportunity to equalise with his header going narrowly wide. Llangefni continued to push on and with 82 minutes on the clock, the all-important equaliser came. Colin McMinimee’s 25 yard cracker curled into the corner of the net, beyond the outstretched arms of keeper Morgan Jones. The scores were level and despite late, late efforts at either end, that’s how it remained at the final whistle. 

Next up for Llangefni is Bangor City home, this Friday night. 7.30 kick off.

 

THE GAFFER HAPPY WITH A POINT AWAY FROM HOME

11th September 2019

THE GAFFER HAPPY WITH A POINT AWAY FROM HOME

“Even though we went to Port last night with the intention of picking up all three points we have to be happy with a point away from home to a team that finished third last season.

We started well and took the lead early in the first half but I was left frustrated with conceding 2 “sloppy” goals to go in at the break 2-1 down. A few words were said in the dressing room at half time and I was looking for a response in the second half. I thought we started much brighter, we were more organised and we stepped up a gear. We should have levelled the scores when Iwan Jones was inches away at the far post from getting on the end of a great cross by Cai Powell-Roberts. We kept knocking on the door and asking questions of the Porthmadog defence and our equaliser came with what I can only describe as a screamer from Callum McMinimee and a goal he thoroughly deserves for his efforts so far this season.

I have to give credit to the lads tonight, they showed great character to come back from behind and not for the first time this season we showed what type of players we have in this squad. I told them before the match that I felt this game was going to be the toughest match we have had so far due to them having some familiar faces with a point to prove and they were desperate to get some points on the board. There is no doubt they have some quality players in their squad and I feel that they will soon go on a bit of a run.

We go again now on Friday night at home to Bangor City, another tough match that we are looking forward to. We hope to get a big crowd to support the lads.”
