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

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.
