EWING JOINS CHRIS’S COACHING STAFF.

26th May 2017

First Team Manager Chris Roberts has added Liam Ewing to his coaching staff. 

Town manager Chris Roberts has known Liam for a number of years and knows exactly what he will bring to the coaching side of things:

“I am really pleased that Liam has accepted the offer to join my coaching staff, at only 26 Liam has years of experience in the game and at a high level having played for numerous clubs including Llangefni Town when they were in the Welsh Premier. Liam sustained a nasty injury to his knee last season and is waiting to see a specialist and will possibly need surgery, therefore cannot play for the time being, therefore brining Liam in as part of the coaching staff was an easy decision for me. Liam is one of if not the most professional characters I have ever had in my dressing room. Liam’s role within the backroom staff will be First Team Goalkeeping Coach and his duties will be to coach both First Team and Reserve Goalkeepers during training sessions as well as hopefully bringing the u16 GK’s in to train with us. On match days he will be with the First Team and taking the Goalkeepers through their warm-ups. Liam helped out with coaching Kenny and Osian Goulding last season and looked right at home as he took them through their paces. This will be a great benefit for our goalkeepers to have quality training every week and will also benefit us as a team. Liam will also be the first team’s first aider on match days.” 

Liam commented:

"First of all I would like to thank Chris and the other members of coaching staff to offer me a role as part of the coaching staff and I’m excited to have accepted the offer. Because of the injury suffered and not knowing how much longer I will be on the side-lines, I’m delighted to have been given opportunity to remain involved in the game with Llangefni and play a part in this seasons attempt of winning the league. Also, not only working with the senior goalkeepers, but being able to work with the younger goalkeepers is exciting and hopefully I can develop them enough so that they have the best chance to maybe one day be 'The Town's' keepers

ABERGELE & PRESTATYN SPORTS VOTED OUT OF THE LEAGUE

24th May 2017

At the annual league meeting at Llanfairfechan last night both Abergele Town and Prestatyn Sports were voted out of the Welsh Alliance on a ballot after failing to meet the specified ground criteria. That means only Glan Conwy will be relegated, Llanrwst United will remain in Division 1, Llandudno Albion and Mynydd Llandegai being promoted to Division One.
Next season will commence on Saturday 12th August and there will be a midweek game for the first three weeks of the season.
A decision on Gwalchmai's application to re-join the league was deferred until the other promotion contenders were known.

RESERVES SEASON REVIEW BY GAFYN BUCKLAND

16th May 2017

With most of the squad playing their first season of senior football, I knew this was going to be a tough campaign in the Welsh Alliance Reserve League. The standard of opposition was improved by the likes of Bangor City, Caernarfon Town and Prestatyn Town Reserves replacing Meliden, Blaeanu Ffestioniog and Porthmadog Reserves. I had no problem at all with this and relished the opportunity to play against the best young teams in our area. This is why we joined the league, so that our youngsters could play against the best teams on the best pitches and develop their game far more than they would against the teams that are left in the Anglesey League. In the first half of the season we struggled to compete physically against more experienced teams but I'd say the only times we've been played off the park is against the top 2 away from home and Caernarfon away in September. Our first win came in October at home against Llandudno Junction who were third at the time. The difference for me that day was having Corey Sinnott in the team. His quality and experience made a massive difference and the other players who look up to him really enjoyed playing alongside him. The second half of the season produced much better performances with the players having had a good 6 months to adapt to senior football. As the manager, I had to be patient and encourage the lads even after suffering a heavy defeat because I knew we had the quality and it wouldn't be long before results improved. Our last 9 games saw us win 4, draw 3 and lose 2. Our biggest win came at Trearddur Bay who were 3-1 up with half an hour to go but we showed a lot of character that day and ended up winning 6-3. Despite the improvement, I'm still disappointed with our final league position and although we were close to finishing above another couple of teams, we really should have done better overall. I thinks it's very important to keep this squad together and with a few quality additions I'm sure we'll be challenging at the other end of the table next season. A big positive for me was that four 16 year olds played for the first team and another two made the squad. Chris Roberts has shown in the past that if you're good enough, you're old enough and he will give players a chance. Then it's up to the players to show the right attitude and grab the opportunity with both hands. I would like to thank Gerald, Vince and Trystan for their help and I can't wait for pre-season to start as I'm already bored, roll on June!             

Llangefni Town 4 - 0 St Asaph

14th May 2017

Llangefni finished the season equal on points and goal difference with Llandudno Junction, but lost out on the Welsh Alliance league runners up and the possibility of promotion by goals scored. 

Llangefni, knowing that they needed to beat Junctions score by three goals got off to the best possible start going 2 - 0 up inside the first quarter of an hour with goals from Iwan Jones and Jack Williams. The Town continued to dominate the half but were unable to increase their lead against a stubborn Saint defence.  

The second half continued in the same manner, Cefni knew more goals were needed due to the fact Junction were 2-0 up. On 67 minutes, Matthew Jones made it 3-0 finishing off great move and Jones made it 4-0 on 75th minute setting up an exciting finish in front of a bumper crowd at Talwrn Road. Llangefni pushed everything forward in search of the 5th goal, with 10 minutes to go, the inform Craig Roberts found himself through on goal but was brought down by a saints defender, everyone in the ground apart from the man with a whistle thought it was a penalty, such a season defining decision wasn't given. Great result, even better performance ended in disappointment when the result of Junctions match came through.

What a great season, fantastic achievement by the players, management and all involved behind the scenes, it shows how far we've come. We wish to thank our supporters and the continued support of our sponsors.
