NARROW DEFEAT V RIVALS BANGOR CITY

15th September 2019

Llangefni Town suffered a 1-0 defeat against local rivals Bangor City in a tight fought affair in front of packed crowd at Cae Bob Parry. 


A back pass to the keeper was intercepted by Francesco Serefinio who rounded keeper Tyler French to finish well from close angle on 13 minutes to open the scoring for the visitors.  


Keeper Gabriele Brino came to Bangor’s rescue on 30 minutes, a fantastic save from Steve Kehoe’s shot.  From the resulting corner, a free header from Dan Thomas went narrowly over bar.  Brino came to Bangor’s rescue again on 38 minutes. A header from Alun Roberts this time forcing another great save to Brino’s bottom left. 


On 43 minutes, Aldir Neto powerful shot from outside the area was tipped over bar by French.  


Llangefni first chance of second half came to Craig Roberts skying his shot from 15 yards out.  


Although the visitors did enjoy large spells of possession in the second half, Llangefni’s defence held solid and their chances were limited to long range shots that French dealt with comfortably.  


15 minutes from the end, Emmanuel Agyemang Akwa-Dei missed a golden chance to double City's lead when he went through 1 on 1 with French in Cefni’s goal, the effort was saved by the out rushing French.  


Cefni did push on in the final 10 minutes of match in search of equaliser, a series of corners and free kick’s at the edge of the area was dealt with and the match finished 1-0 to Bangor City.  


Next up is high flyers Flint United away in Saturday 21 September.  2:30 kickoff.  

PORTHMADOG 2 - 2 LLANGEFNI TOWN

11th September 2019

Callum McMinimee’s 25 yard thunderbolt, 8 minutes from time salvaged a point for Llangefni in an entertaining 2-2 draw away to Porthmadog.  

Port started the brightest, dominating possession with half chances falling to Iwan Lewis and John Owen. Despite the early pressure by the hosts it was Cefni who went ahead. The pace of Matthew Jones wrong footed the Port defence and a neat exchange of passes to Craig Roberts in space in the box to finish confidently from 12 yards. The lead however was short lived as Port hit back immediately and when a low ball was played into the centre of the box John Owen was on hand to apply the finishing touch from close range. 6 minutes later and Port were ahead, Telor Williams’s cross field pass to John Owen who found Josh Banks out wide on the left. Banks’s accurate cross was met by Mel McGinness, his powerful header found the net from 5 yards. In search of an equaliser before half time, good chances came Llangefni’s way but Port’s keeper Morgan Jones was on guard to push away a Craig Roberts effort and Matthew Jones fired a low, powerful shot but wide of the post.  

A change of formation early in the second half, Llangefni sensed they could get something from the match. They relied mainly on shots from distance and sub Jake Jones fired one over the bar from 18 yards.  Ten minutes from time an excellent cross by Cai Powell-Roberts to Alun Roberts who failed to capitalise on an opportunity to equalise with his header going narrowly wide. Llangefni continued to push on and with 82 minutes on the clock, the all-important equaliser came. Colin McMinimee’s 25 yard cracker curled into the corner of the net, beyond the outstretched arms of keeper Morgan Jones. The scores were level and despite late, late efforts at either end, that’s how it remained at the final whistle. 

Next up for Llangefni is Bangor City home, this Friday night. 7.30 kick off.

 

THE GAFFER HAPPY WITH A POINT AWAY FROM HOME

11th September 2019

THE GAFFER HAPPY WITH A POINT AWAY FROM HOME

“Even though we went to Port last night with the intention of picking up all three points we have to be happy with a point away from home to a team that finished third last season.

We started well and took the lead early in the first half but I was left frustrated with conceding 2 “sloppy” goals to go in at the break 2-1 down. A few words were said in the dressing room at half time and I was looking for a response in the second half. I thought we started much brighter, we were more organised and we stepped up a gear. We should have levelled the scores when Iwan Jones was inches away at the far post from getting on the end of a great cross by Cai Powell-Roberts. We kept knocking on the door and asking questions of the Porthmadog defence and our equaliser came with what I can only describe as a screamer from Callum McMinimee and a goal he thoroughly deserves for his efforts so far this season.

I have to give credit to the lads tonight, they showed great character to come back from behind and not for the first time this season we showed what type of players we have in this squad. I told them before the match that I felt this game was going to be the toughest match we have had so far due to them having some familiar faces with a point to prove and they were desperate to get some points on the board. There is no doubt they have some quality players in their squad and I feel that they will soon go on a bit of a run.

We go again now on Friday night at home to Bangor City, another tough match that we are looking forward to. We hope to get a big crowd to support the lads.”

RESERVES LATE GOAL SALVAGES A POINT

9th September 2019

Luke Waller's 90th minute equaliser earned Llangefni Town Reserves a valuable point away at Penmaenmawr Phoenix Reserves on Saturday. Phoenix took the lead after 8 minutes when Sean Williams seemed to foul a Llangefni defender but the referee waved play on and Williams finished low passed Connor Roberts. The visitors reacted positively to going a goal down and created many chances before Waller found the bottom far corner from close range after a great through ball by centre back John Alex Jones. The second half was end to end with both teams creating chances but Phoenix took the lead on 75 minutes after winning a very soft penalty. Hadyn Williams coverted his spot kick to make it  2-1. Penmaenmawr's keeper was proving to be thorn in Cefni's side, making at least 4 fantastic saves in the last 15 minutes but the visitors perseverance was eventually rewarded in the 90th minute when Dion Owen played a great ball to Waller on the right wing who cut inside and once again found the bottom far corner with a powerful drive. Llangefni will be slightly disappointed not to have taken all 3 points considering the amount of chances they created but they showed a lot of character to come back twice and earn a decent point away from home.

2-2 DRAW V BUCKLEY TOWN

8th September 2019

Llangefni Town came from a goal behind to secure a 2-2 draw following an entertaining match at home to Buckley Town.  


The visitors started the brightest having a goal disallowed on 4 minutes, due to an infringement on Cefni’s keeper Tyler French. But it was Cefni who took the lead on 10  minutes, a quick one two between Craig Roberts & Matthew Jones found Gari Owen on the left who’s cut back made its way to Iwan Jones to blast in his first of the season.


Buckley were equal after 32 minutes, Lewis Hone flicked on a long throw but a sliced clearance by Cefni’s Craig Roberts found its way in to his own net to make it 1-1.  


Just past the hour mark, a half cleared corner landed at the feet of Eden who’s looping shot found its way over French to make it 2-1 for Buckley Town.  


Three minutes later Cefni were equal, a first time cross from Callum Mcminimee towards the advancing Mathew Jones in the 6 yard area with Callum Humphreys getting the unfortunate last touch for an own goal. 


Next up is Porthmadog away on Tuesday 7:30 kickoff before the local derby v Bangor City on Friday.
