SEMI FINAL LOSS

LLANGEFNI TOWN 0 - 1 CHRIK AAA

Report by Dave Jones. Daily Post 

For the second time in four years Chirk AAA will feature in the FAW Trophy Final after a Matty Thomas goal proved enough to see off Llangefni Town at Rhyl's Corbett Sports Stadium on Saturday.

Mark Holmes' men were good value for their win although the Welsh National League side were indebted to keeper Zac Bebbington for a trio of fine saves around the hour mark as Cefni's attack finally began to click. 

The Colliers threatened inside the first minute when Nicky Williams corner looked to be curling straight in only for Craig Evans to head off the line.

Llangefni had a golden chance in the third minute when Evans laid off a free kick to the back post into the path of Alun Roberts who somehow blazed over from four yards.

Evans was then denied just as he was about to pull the trigger, and on 20 minutes Matthew Jones turned in a Corey Sinnott cross but was adjudged offside.  

Louie Middlehurst's header was deflected onto the bar with stand-in keeper Steve Sinclair, normally a centre-back but forced to deputise between the sticks as regulars Liam Ewing and Kenny Hughes were unavailable, watching on.

Thomas raced into the area but fired off target, then Chris Bennion lashed over the bar when he should have done better.

In the 42nd minute the deadlock was broken when Thomas created room for himself and from 20 yards out sent in a fierce shot which took a bobble before beating Sinclair and finding the net.

Chirk applied early pressure in the second half, Sinclair unable to hold a Thomas free kick, but the danger was eventually cleared.

Then the Welsh Alliance side had a strong three-minute spell where three clear chances were created. 

James Saxon's cross was met by the head of Evans, but Bebbington did well to tip his attempt over the bar.

From the resulting Matthew Jones corner, Evans climbed highest at the back stick but was unable to keep his header down.

Matthew Jones then burst into the box but his stinging drive from a narrow angle was pushed over by Bebbington.

Llangefni replaced Corey Sinnott and Matthew Jones with Anthony Hughes and Iwan Jones in a bid to give them fresh impetus up front.

And it so nearly worked as within a minute Iwan Jones had a chance, but Bebbington managed to fingertip his low drive behind for a corner.

Chirk steadied the ship and Williams and Middlehurst were thwarted by Sinclair before Craig Roberts went desperately close for the Anglesey men.

The Colliers remained dangerous on the counter in the closing stages, while Llangefni gave it everything they could, but a Chirk defence brilliantly marshalled by Phil Pearce held on for the win and a meeting with Penlan Club AFC in the 2017 Trophy Final.

A word for both sets of fans who were magnificent, especially the Llangefni crew who sang their hearts out from start to finish and sportingly applauded the winners at the final whistle as well as giving their own team a rousing reception.

LLANGEFNI TOWN 2 - 1 GREENFIELD

5th March 2017


Llangefni bounced back from last week's Mawddach Cup defeat with a convincing win against Greenfield at Coleg Llandrillo. Ibrahim Fazeel and Steve Kehoe's long range efforts went over the bar before Craig Evans gave Cefni the lead on 36 minutes from close range after a good through ball from Corey Sinnott. Llangefni doubled their advantage a minute later after Fazeel won the ball with a crunching tackle before playing a great through ball to Anthony Hughes who's shot beat the keeper from a tight angle.
 
Cefni controlled the second half and had the chances to kill the game off but Jack Williams and James Saxon's efforts went wide of goal. Mark Robinson pulled a goal back in stoppage time for Greenfield but The Town held firm to claim the 3 points. Chris Roberts will be looking for the same kind of performance in next Saturday's FAW Trophy semi-final against Chirk at Rhyl's Belle Vue.
