LLANGEFNI Town bowed out of the Nathaniel MG Cup at the first-round stage with a 3-1 defeat at Llanfair United.


The newly promoted JD Cymru North side were well in the contest until late in the second period to ensure their foray in the competition was a brief one, giving Chris Roberts’ side the weekend off before their eagerly anticipated second tier opener.


Despite the eventual result it was the visitors got the tie off on the front foot, and they were rewarded for their impressive opening to proceedings when Craig Roberts’ towering header at the far post gave them the lead early on.

This was met by a strong response from the home side, who got themselves back on level terms after 23 minutes when Karl Seliaerts delivered a superb 20-yard striker that found its way into the corner.


The second period was another closely fought affair until United got their noses in front for the first time in the tie on 50 minutes when Josh Astley was presented with a chance, and he calmly put away the chance to give the hosts a slender advantage.

Cefni had a golden chance to equalise soon after when they were awarded a penalty with 65 on the clock, but their spot kick was turned away by home custodian Danny Foulkes and the danger was averted.

Roberts’ side threw extra caution to the wind in the dying moments in pursuit of a route back into the contest, which left them vulnerable at the back and a quick counter-attack from United saw Ashley Davies double their advantage and secure their win in stoppage time.

The Football Association of Wales has today (24 July) announced a new brand identity and sponsorship deal for the top two tiers of the men’s domestic game. 

Forty-five clubs from across the country will come together as one community, under a new identity: the Cymru Leagues. 

‘Cymru Premier’, the newly named top tier of Welsh football will form the peak of the new pyramid system. ‘Cymru North’ and ‘Cymru South’ replaces the Huws Gray Alliance and Welsh League Division 1 respectively, with both leagues coming under the FAW’s jurisdiction for the first time.

JD will continue their support of Welsh domestic football by becoming the title sponsor of all three divisions, which will henceforth be known as the JD Cymru Premier, JD Cymru North and JD Cymru South, with JD Cymru Leagues becoming the overarching name for the leagues.

The three leagues encompass every corner of Wales, which is why the new bilingual naming system places ‘Cymru’ at the heart of Welsh football.

Alongside the naming system, a new visual identity has been created for the leagues. A key component of the FAW’s brand identity, the daffodil, has previously been used to represent the 11 players of the national teams and will now be incorporated within the Cymru Leagues. 

Seven daffodils, each representing one of the seven leagues of Welsh domestic football’s top three tiers, upon completion of the pyramid restructure, come together to form the striking ball logo. 

The recent success of our domestic teams has captured the true Welsh spirit of supporters across the country. A radical departure from past identities, the modern logo reflects the modernisation of the new pyramid structure and the future ambitions of Welsh football.

JD recognise this and have been a partner of Welsh domestic football since 2015 and the new deal sees the FAW’s partnership with JD cemented for the next seven seasons, with the sponsorship running until the 2025/26 season
