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.

DEPLETED RESERVES LAMBS TO THE SLAUGHTER AGAINST A STRONGER THAN USUAL PRESTATYN

21st November 2018

Llangefni Town Reserves travelled to Prestatyn on Saturday knowing they’d be in for a tough afternoon. A total of 9 players were unavailable due to the international fixture and injuries/illness, while Prestatyn’s first team and all other teams had very sensibly been given a free weekend by the Cymru Alliance, so they had the luxury of fielding a number of first team squad members in this game. Cefni found themselves 3-0 down by half-time, and unfortunately the floodgates well and truly opened up in the second half as Prestatyn added another 5 goals to their tally to make the final score 8-0. Last season’s Welsh Alliance 2 top scorer Matthew Griffiths helped himself to a hat-trick and Llangefni’s youngsters naivety was cruelly exposed by an unforgiving and relentless front 3.

This Friday the reserves will be looking to give a better account of themselves as they travel to Conwy, 7.30pm kick off.

Paul Rowlands signs on loan for CPD Gwalchmai.

Paul Rowlands signs on loan for CPD Gwalchmai. Statement from manager Chris Roberts: "Paul is a fantastic player and one that i see as an important part of our squad going forwarad and competing for the league this season, with Paul not being able to train and missing a few games his game time has been limited and therefore i wanted him to go out on loan to get match time under his belt ready for the push come January, I felt that Gwalchmai was a good option for Paul to get the match time he needed and also think playing under Craig Evans will help in getting his confidence back I wish Craig and Paul all the best during his loan spell" Pob lwc Paul
