2-1 win v Llanberis

An Alan Mark Owen bullet header gave Llangefni Town a 2-1 win at home to Llanberis in the Welsh Alliance league.  


Cefni made two changes from last week, Andy Sinclair and Harry Galeotti starting instead of the injured Liam Morris and Dan Thomas who was suspended.  


Llangefni started the encounter brightly with almost constant presence in the’ Llanberis half in the opening five minutes, but clearances from the visitors defence ensured keeper Louis Williams went untested.


The first real chance of the match came on 30 minutes, Cefni putting pressure on, with Harry Galeotti beating his man on the left wing to send a cross glancing across the goalmouth, but none of Llangefni’s attackers were there to capitalise.  


One of the best chances of the half fell to Alun Roberts just before the break, when a deep cross landed at Roberts feet, who sent a shot just over from inside the six yard box.


Cefni were enjoying the lion’s share of possession, but the well set up defence of the visitors kept the game goalless at halftime. 


On 51 minutes following some intense pressure from Llangefni, Llanberis winger Ifan Mansoon on the counter was through on goal, only for Steve Sinclair to be out of his blocks early to sweep from outside his area.  


On the hour, Galeotti cut in from the left wing to send a cross in for Andy Sinclair head in Llangefni’s opener.  1-0. ( PICTURED) 


Cefni’s lead was to be short lived, a penalty was awarded for Llanberis on 70 minutes. David Jones stepped up and drove a low effort into the bottom left corner of the net ensuring the scores were level once again. 1-1. 


Llanberis equaliser was short lived, 2 minutes later, Andy Sinclair now the provider sent a cross from deep met Alan Mark Owen’s run from outside the area to riffle in his header into the back of the net from 12 yards out.  2-1.  


The Town battled through the reminder of the match to secure a well fought three points at full time.

Goalless draw away to Greenfield

Goalless draw away to Greenfield

Llangefni Town played out a 0-0 draw away to Greenfield who remain unbeaten at home this season. 


Manager Chris Roberts made three changes to the side that beat Penrhyndeudraeth, with Gari Owen, Jack Williams and James Saxon starting.  


The match first real chance fell to  Llangefni on 15 minutes, with Matthew Jones beating his defender, he ran into the area, squared the ball to Craig Roberts who finished well to open the scoring, only for the goal to be ruled out for offside. 


A minute later, Steve Sinclair in Llangefni’s goal was called into action with a fine save from a 25 yard shot.  


Llangefni were enjoying a lot of possession in the Greenfield half, on 37 minutes, good work between Cai Powell-Roberts and Mathew Jones to Liam Morris through on goal with his shot saved by Danny Statnton in Greenfield’s goal.  


Moments later Llangefni saw another good opportunity to score, good counter attacking play when Morris beat his man, ran down the wing, cut inside and sent a great shot only to be denied once again by Stanton.  


Despite continuing to control the game, Cefni were forced to settle with a goalless scoreline at the interval.


Greenfield enjoyed a bright start when play recommenced, hitting the bar twice inside the first 5 minutes and forcing a couple of good saves from Sinclair in Cefni’s goal.


The game had an end to end feeling to it, but Llangefni were dealt a blow, when Daniel Thomas, who was solid at the back and had been a constant danger at set pieces, was shown a second yellow and subsequent red card for a mistimed tackle.


The ten men Cefni were then left to try and break the deadlock with the final stages approaching. They attacked via Callum

McMinimee, who crossed to Jones, whose header glanced across the Greenfield goal mouth before going out.


On 88 minutes, Harry Galeotti made a surging run down the wing and into the Greenfield area, but was tackled before he could deliver the ball into the six yard box where Cefni had men waiting.


Neither side could find a late winner, with referee Peter Kewly’ whistle confirming a 0-0 draw at full time.


The result keeps Cefni second in the Welsh Alliance League. Next up is Llanberis at home in the league. Saturday, 5 January.  2:30 kick off

On 22nd minute there was a warning from Meilir Williams the league top scorer, who ran towards Cefnis’ goal with his shot going narrowly wide. 


On 33 minutes, a Chris Saxon shot forced a great save from Penrhyn’s keeper and from the resulting corner Cefni opened the scoring courtesy of a bullet header from Dan Thomas.  1-0


Cefni doubled their advantage after the break, Centre half Dan Thomas once again, this time with a half volley that crashed in off the post.  2-0


Meilir Williams came close to pulling one back for the hosts, his free kick hitting the crossbar from a 25 yards.
