LLANGEFNI TOWN 1-3 LLANBERIS
2nd September 2016
Llangefni lost 3-1 to Llanberis on Saturday in the league. Llangefni started brightly and Paul Rowlands and Iwan Jones came close to opening the scoring. Then a lack of concentration at the back saw young Jack Roberts rush off his line to concede a penalty. Llanberis converted the penalty 0-1. Llangefni started to dominate play again after the goal and were in complete control when they played a back pass to Jack, he miss controlled the ball to leave Gareth Eifion the Llanberis striker with an easy tap in to make it 0-2 at Half Time. After the break Llangefni started brightly with Connor Gordon hitting the post and Craig Evans heading wide Llanberis broke down the right and delivered a cross into the box that seemed to be comfortable for the goalkeeper but the ball went underneath him and into the path of the Llanberis wide man who comfortably slotted home at the back post. Llangefni did pull one back when James Saxon's header lobbed the goalkeeper. Some costly errors led to us loosing the match 3-1, manager Chris Roberts was very disapointed at the final whistle.
BOTH TEAMS SUFFER MIDWEEK DEFEATS
25th August 2016
Llangefni lost 4-1 at Glantraeth on Wednesday night. After a goalless first half, Glantraeth took the lead early in the second half and Steve Kehoe was sent off after receiving two bookings between the home team's second and third goals. Paul Rowlands made it 3-1 from the penalty spot late on and Glantraeth scored again before two of their players were sent off for receiving second yellow cards. The first team are home against Llanberis on Saturday, 2.30pm kick off and Chris Roberts will be looking for his team to bounce back with an improved performance.
Meanwhile Llangefni Reserves lost 3-0 to Llanberis on Tuesday night. After a good first half Cefni conceded 3 goals in the space of 15 minutes in the second half. The youngsters may have lost their first three games but they are not being outplayed by their opponents. At the moment they are coming up against far more experienced and physical teams who are taking full advantage of our mistakes. We believe the players will learn and results will improve as the season progresses. We don't see any point in having several players over 30 in our reserves who are past their best and have no chance of playing for the first team.

LLANGEFNI TOWN 2-1 LLANDUDNO JUNCTION
21st August 2016
Two goals including a late winner from Craig Roberts (sponsored by Graham Cohen) on his debut gave Llangefni all 3 points against last season's title challengers Llandudno Junction at Lon Talwrn. Junction took the lead after 20 minutes when Lee Ellis took advantage of some sloppy defending by Llangefni. Roberts who had to drop into a deeper role in midfield after Chris Saxon was forced off with an injury scored the equaliser when he smashed it into the top corner when the ball fell to him inside the box. After a flat start Cefni started taking control of the game and Paul Rowlands nearly gave us the lead early in the second half but his shot hit the underside of the crossbar. The visitors looked as if they were going to hang on to their first point of the season but Craig Roberts had other ideas. A change in formation allowed him to push further forward and after missing an earlier one on one with the keeper, he made no mistake in the 90th minute when he pounced a through ball and lobbed the on rushing keeper from the edge of the area. Manager Chris Roberts will be delighted with the character of his players and the determination they showed to get the win. Llangefni will be looking to make it 3 wins out of 3 at local rivals Glantraeth on Wednesday night, 6.30pm kick off.
