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.

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.
