CROESO I GYMRU

25th July 2019

The Football Association of Wales has today (24 July) announced a new brand identity and sponsorship deal for the top two tiers of the men’s domestic game. 

Forty-five clubs from across the country will come together as one community, under a new identity: the Cymru Leagues. 

‘Cymru Premier’, the newly named top tier of Welsh football will form the peak of the new pyramid system. ‘Cymru North’ and ‘Cymru South’ replaces the Huws Gray Alliance and Welsh League Division 1 respectively, with both leagues coming under the FAW’s jurisdiction for the first time.

JD will continue their support of Welsh domestic football by becoming the title sponsor of all three divisions, which will henceforth be known as the JD Cymru Premier, JD Cymru North and JD Cymru South, with JD Cymru Leagues becoming the overarching name for the leagues.

The three leagues encompass every corner of Wales, which is why the new bilingual naming system places ‘Cymru’ at the heart of Welsh football.

Alongside the naming system, a new visual identity has been created for the leagues. A key component of the FAW’s brand identity, the daffodil, has previously been used to represent the 11 players of the national teams and will now be incorporated within the Cymru Leagues. 

Seven daffodils, each representing one of the seven leagues of Welsh domestic football’s top three tiers, upon completion of the pyramid restructure, come together to form the striking ball logo. 

The recent success of our domestic teams has captured the true Welsh spirit of supporters across the country. A radical departure from past identities, the modern logo reflects the modernisation of the new pyramid structure and the future ambitions of Welsh football.

JD recognise this and have been a partner of Welsh domestic football since 2015 and the new deal sees the FAW’s partnership with JD cemented for the next seven seasons, with the sponsorship running until the 2025/26 season

BOTH TEAMS DRAW IN MIDWEEK FRIENDLIES

25th July 2019

Our 1st team drew 1-1 at Bodedern on Tuesday night thanks to a Harry Galeotti equaliser in the 2nd half. Goals from Jack Edwards and William Hughes put the reserves 2-0 up at Bryngwran on Wednesday but the Bulls came back and equalised from a free-kick with 10 minutes to go.

BRILLIANT BUXTON BEAT THE TOWN

23rd July 2019

English non-league side Buxton FC were the visitors on Saturday and gave Llangefni the perfect pre-season workout in the heat at Lon Talwrn. With 7 players away on holiday or injured, Chris Roberts saw this as a good opportunity to give several youngsters some 1st team experience. Buxton dominated most of the possession in the 1st half but Llangefni kept there shape and discipline which made it very hard for the opposition to break them down. The only goal of the half came after 35 minutes when the visitors central midfielder found the top corner with a brilliant strike from outside the box. Both teams made several changes in the second half and Llangefni ended the game with five 16 year olds on the pitch. Buxton added another 4 goals to their tally in the second half while substitute Gerwyn Roberts finished off the move of the match to give Cefni a goal they thoroughly deserved for their hard work. Our next friendly is away at Bodedern on Tuesday night, 6.45pm kick off.       

YOUNGSTERS SHINE AS TOWN BEAT BETHESDA

17th July 2019

Llangefni Town strolled to a comfortable 2-0 friendly win against Bethesda at Lon Talwrn last night. Iwan Jones capitalised on a mistake and chipped the keeper to give Cefni the lead after 10 minutes. Steve Kehoe and Matthew Jones had chances to increase Llangefni's advantage but were unable to hit the target. The second goal finally came on the hour when Dan Thomas' header went in off the bar. Several youngster were given the chance to shine and Luke Waller in particular caught the eye with a great run but unfortunately his shot cannoned off the crossbar. The game ended 2-0 to the home side and although Cefni should have scored more, Chris Roberts will have been pleased with the amount of chances his side created in a very one sided contest.
