Impressive point v Colwyn Bay

28th August 2019

A Craig Roberts wonder strike cancelled out Julian Williams opener to secure an impressive point for Cefni, in front of a bumper Talwrn Road crowd.  

Both sides started the game tentatively and chances were at a premium as it was a case of defences on top, a theme which would continue for the entirety of the first half.

The first sniff of goal arrived on 27 minutes when Alun Roberts was found in space just inside the box, but his strike from 15 yards went narrowly wide. 

The visitors made changes early in the second half which paid dividends just past the hour, a cross by substitute Ketley to Williams at the far post to finish the move off in style with a half volley from 8 yards out.  

Cefni pressed on in search of an equaliser, a half cleared corner was picked up by Craig Roberts whose Paulo Di Canio style volley flew in to the far top corner of the net to score a deserved equaliser for the Town.  

There was some late pressure by Colwyn Bay in the final few minutes but to no avail. The Town could take confidence from another strong performance against one of the title favourites, and were unlucky to not to take all three points if a strong penalty shout would have been given.

Next up is Conwy Borough away on Saturday.  2:30 kickoff. 

Narrow defeat away to Rhyl

24th August 2019

Cefni found themselves very unlucky not to go home with at least a point following a spirited display away against title challengers Rhyl 

A cagey opening to proceedings saw Rhyl struggle to penetrate the fierce Cefni resistance, who set up extremely well. After a positive start for Cefni, the deadlock was broken on 24 minutes, a lack of concentration in Cefni’s defence saw a James Murphy through ball to Sam Molyneux who was through on goal, and the forward produced a confident finish past Tyler French to open the account.  Things got even better for the Lilies’ immediately following the restart as Murphy unleashed a superb left-footed effort that flew into the corner to double the home teams advantage.

Cefni got themselves back into the game after the break, a Steve Kehoe shot led to a corner where Alun Roberts bundled the ball into the net from close range to make it 2-1 with 49 on the clock.

Cefni took a more attacking approach in search of an equaliser, which almost arrived on 66 minutes when Jake Jones forced Keighan Jones into a smart stop after some exceptional individual work from livewire striker Matthew Jones and Cai Powell Roberts on the right.  

There was nothing but constant pressure late on by Cefni, a Jamie Roberts shot went close and a double hand ball penalty shout was turned down by the referee.  Rhyl held on for the win.  

Next up is is Welsh Football newcomers Colwyn Bay at home, Wednesday night.  7:30 kickoff.  

Reserves mistakes punished by clinical Llanrug

22nd August 2019

Llangefni Town Reserves suffered defeat at Llanrug in their first league game of the season. The youngsters took the lead through Leon Buckland's low finish in the 1st minute but conceded 3 poor goals before half-time. Slack marking from a corner lead to the 1st Llanrug goal and the 2nd and 3rd came from Llangefni trying to play out of the back when maybe they should have gone for the safer option. The second half was literally an uphill struggle and despite creating good chances, the visitors were unable to get back into the game and it finished 3-1. There were some positives to take from the game. Heads could have easily gone down but every player gave 100% until the final whistle. 5 players made their senior league debuts in a squad that contained only 2 players over 19 and there's no doubt they will learn from this defeat. Friday night gives this team a great chance to bounce back at home against Colwyn Bay Reserves, 7.30pm kick off.

The Gaffer reflects on a winning start to life in the JD Cymru North League.

The Gaffer reflects on a winning start to life in the JD Cymru North League. 

 "It’s great to get off the mark and points on the board in our first game of the new season. We looked comfortable throughout the match with goalkeeper Tyler French only having to deal with one shot all game. Gresford did have 10/15 minute spells in both halves were they saw a lot of the ball but never really asked any questions of us and found it hard to break us down which highlighted how well organised the lads were. The comments of "embarrassing and a disgrace" coming from the Gresford team on social media after the match just goes to show that they underestimated us and were expecting to easily beat a newly promoted side. 

We were well organised and kept our shape throughout the match which made it hard for them to break us down. We took our chances and opened them up and got in behind a few times which could have resulted in us scoring even more (especially during the first half). I asked the lads before kick-off to go out and show everyone that we are not here to make up the numbers and that we want to make Talwrn Road a hard place for teams to visit and I believe the crowd can help us achieve this as they have done over the last few years. We know that every side in the Cymru North are good sides and we are looking forward to the challenge of competing against these top sides in what is a tough league. 

We travel to face Rhyl on Friday night in what I think is one of the toughest ties of the season, we know we will need to be at our best if we are to get anything out of this game and will prepare well this week and look to go there and give them a good game.”

Llangefni Town 2-0 Gresford Athletic

18th August 2019

Llangefni Town endured a perfect start to their JD Cymru North campaign with a convincing 2-0 win over Gresford Athletic.  

Matthew Jones opened the scoring inside 14 minutes, Craig Roberts winning the ball in midfield, his pass out wide to Jake Jones who’s perfectly timed through ball to Jones who calmly chipped the out coming keeper from 20 yards out.  

Cefni created a handful of chances to extended their first half lead, Jamie Roberts and Mathew Jones shots forcing Ben Jones in Athletics goal to pull off two fantastic saves.  

On the 72nd minute, Cefni extended their lead.  Matthew Jones once again taking advantage of a defensive mixup to round the keeper to score his second of the match.   

The visitors came more in to the match in the last 20 minutes, getting their fair share of procession without really troubling French in Cefni’s goal. 

Brilliant performance from the lads.  

Next up is Rhyl away on Friday night, 23 August.  7:45 kickoff.
