CEFNI SUFFER DEFEAT IN THE MAWDDACH CUP FINAL

13th May 2019

Llangefni lost 2-1 after extra time in the Mawddach Cup Final against Llanrwst Utd on Saturday. Llanrwst took the lead early in the second half but Harry Galeotti equalised with a superb long range effort after 65 minutes. The game could have gone either way with both teams creating chances but Llanrwst scored the winner in the 1st half of extra time.

Despite the defeat it's been a great season for Chris Roberts and his squad. With promotion confirmed, it's going to be an interesting and exciting summer for Llangefni Town FC.

HOW THE TITLE WAS WON?

After drawing 0-0 in their opening league game of the campaign at Llanberis, Llangefni Town embarked on a seven-match winning run in Welsh Alliance Division One between August 15 and September 22.


With so many cup commitments, Cefni did not play another league match for eight weeks, seeing off Prestatyn Sports 2-0 at Lon Talwrn on November 17.


A first Division One defeat at home to old rivals Llanrug United on November 27 did not do too much harm to Chris Roberts’ men, another undefeated streak of six in the league heading into March keeping them well placed.


Only a second league loss of the campaign at home against Nantlle Vale on March 13 again failed to derail Llangefni’s push for top spot, 16 points being taken out of a possible 18 prior to their third and final reverse, Mynydd Llandegai taking the spoils 2-0 at Lon Talwrn on April 14.


Town showed true grit in their next three games which saw them claim seven points from an available nine from trips to Barmouth, Nantlle Vale and Llanrwst.


Llangefni finished their league fixtures unbeaten on their travels.

Then came the final night decider against a Bodedern outfit who pushed them so hard till the end, which ended 2-0 to the champions.


It had looked for a long time like a two-horse race, although a superb group of results since the turn of the year from Llandudno Albion kept them in the argument.


Cefni’s strength was largely in their tremendous defence – just 16 goals conceded in 28 matches – as well as their ability to find the net throughout the side.


Liam Morris, Kevin Lloyd, Matthew Jones and Alan Mark Owen – all strikers with plenty of experience at this standard – have each reached around the 20-goals mark.


A magnificent seven wins which clinched the title


Llanrug (a – Aug 15) 2-0

A strong start is crucial for any potential title challenger, and a 2-0 triumph away against a team as powerful as Llanrug set the standard, Alun Roberts and Craig Roberts scoring.


Llandudno Albion (a – Aug 18) 5-0

Although no-one knew back in August how high Albion would rank at the end of the season, to register a 5-0 verdict on their travels against such opposition was a statement, Alan Mark Owen, Liam Morris, Cai Powell-Roberts, Matthew Jones and Cameron Jones all on target.


Bodedern Athletic (a – Aug 22) 2-0

Another marker laid down early doors as Liam Morris and Dan Thomas netted against the team which were to emerge as Cefni’s chief title rivals.


Penrhyndeudraeth (a – Dec 22) 3-0

In their first game since losing their unbeaten league record at the hands of Llanrug, Town really showed their mettle at Maes-y-Parc, Dan Thomas (2) and Harry Galeotti clinching a crucial win.


St Asaph (a – Mar 9) 8-1

Against a decent home team, Llangefni really went to town, Liam Morris and Matthew Jones with hat-tricks, Galeotti and Sean Pritchard one apiece.


Llandudno Albion (h – Apr 13) 2-0

By this stage, Albion were looking really dangerous and on a 10-match winning run in the league.

Cefni upset their rhythm with a fine victory thanks to marksmen Matthew Jones and Liam Morris.


Nantlle Vale (a – Apr 22) 2-0

This was a real test of Cefni’s nerve against a team which had beaten them at Lon Talwrn.

 

Goals from Jones and Morris sealed three massive points in the title battle, with Bodedern returning to winning ways on the same night 

CHAMPIONS!!!!

2nd May 2019

Llangefni Town secured their 5th Welsh Alliance League title following an emphatic 2-0 win against title rivals Bodedern Athletic.   


In front of a bumper crowd at Talwrn Road, Llangefni needing just to avoid a heavy defeat went 1-0 ahead on 22 minutes, Kevin Lloyd’s 25 yard free kick finding the top left hand corner of the net, Athletic’s keeper Taylor had no chance.  


Moments later Matthew Jones was through on goal, his chip going over the outrunning Taylor to make it 2-0 and beyond the reach of Bodedern.  


Following the title success, chairman Alwyn Jones said: ‘’What a fantastic achievement!!Congratulations to Chris, the players, management and coaching staff and thank you everyone for your fantastic support.’’  


He continued ‘’We have another final to look forward to versus Llanrwst United on 11 May at Conwy. 2pm kickoff, then our efforts will go on preparations for next season’’


‘’We now have to wait until 10 May for FAW’s decision on Tier 2 Certification and promotion to the newly formed Championship North for next season.  We have submitted our application and are quite confident the certification and promotion will be achieved’’
