HOW THE TITLE WAS WON?

After drawing 0-0 in their opening league game of the campaign at Llanberis, Llangefni Town embarked on a seven-match winning run in Welsh Alliance Division One between August 15 and September 22.


With so many cup commitments, Cefni did not play another league match for eight weeks, seeing off Prestatyn Sports 2-0 at Lon Talwrn on November 17.


A first Division One defeat at home to old rivals Llanrug United on November 27 did not do too much harm to Chris Roberts’ men, another undefeated streak of six in the league heading into March keeping them well placed.


Only a second league loss of the campaign at home against Nantlle Vale on March 13 again failed to derail Llangefni’s push for top spot, 16 points being taken out of a possible 18 prior to their third and final reverse, Mynydd Llandegai taking the spoils 2-0 at Lon Talwrn on April 14.


Town showed true grit in their next three games which saw them claim seven points from an available nine from trips to Barmouth, Nantlle Vale and Llanrwst.


Llangefni finished their league fixtures unbeaten on their travels.

Then came the final night decider against a Bodedern outfit who pushed them so hard till the end, which ended 2-0 to the champions.


It had looked for a long time like a two-horse race, although a superb group of results since the turn of the year from Llandudno Albion kept them in the argument.


Cefni’s strength was largely in their tremendous defence – just 16 goals conceded in 28 matches – as well as their ability to find the net throughout the side.


Liam Morris, Kevin Lloyd, Matthew Jones and Alan Mark Owen – all strikers with plenty of experience at this standard – have each reached around the 20-goals mark.


A magnificent seven wins which clinched the title


Llanrug (a – Aug 15) 2-0

A strong start is crucial for any potential title challenger, and a 2-0 triumph away against a team as powerful as Llanrug set the standard, Alun Roberts and Craig Roberts scoring.


Llandudno Albion (a – Aug 18) 5-0

Although no-one knew back in August how high Albion would rank at the end of the season, to register a 5-0 verdict on their travels against such opposition was a statement, Alan Mark Owen, Liam Morris, Cai Powell-Roberts, Matthew Jones and Cameron Jones all on target.


Bodedern Athletic (a – Aug 22) 2-0

Another marker laid down early doors as Liam Morris and Dan Thomas netted against the team which were to emerge as Cefni’s chief title rivals.


Penrhyndeudraeth (a – Dec 22) 3-0

In their first game since losing their unbeaten league record at the hands of Llanrug, Town really showed their mettle at Maes-y-Parc, Dan Thomas (2) and Harry Galeotti clinching a crucial win.


St Asaph (a – Mar 9) 8-1

Against a decent home team, Llangefni really went to town, Liam Morris and Matthew Jones with hat-tricks, Galeotti and Sean Pritchard one apiece.


Llandudno Albion (h – Apr 13) 2-0

By this stage, Albion were looking really dangerous and on a 10-match winning run in the league.

Cefni upset their rhythm with a fine victory thanks to marksmen Matthew Jones and Liam Morris.


Nantlle Vale (a – Apr 22) 2-0

This was a real test of Cefni’s nerve against a team which had beaten them at Lon Talwrn.

 

Goals from Jones and Morris sealed three massive points in the title battle, with Bodedern returning to winning ways on the same night 

CHAMPIONS!!!!

2nd May 2019

Llangefni Town secured their 5th Welsh Alliance League title following an emphatic 2-0 win against title rivals Bodedern Athletic.   


In front of a bumper crowd at Talwrn Road, Llangefni needing just to avoid a heavy defeat went 1-0 ahead on 22 minutes, Kevin Lloyd’s 25 yard free kick finding the top left hand corner of the net, Athletic’s keeper Taylor had no chance.  


Moments later Matthew Jones was through on goal, his chip going over the outrunning Taylor to make it 2-0 and beyond the reach of Bodedern.  


Following the title success, chairman Alwyn Jones said: ‘’What a fantastic achievement!!Congratulations to Chris, the players, management and coaching staff and thank you everyone for your fantastic support.’’  


He continued ‘’We have another final to look forward to versus Llanrwst United on 11 May at Conwy. 2pm kickoff, then our efforts will go on preparations for next season’’


‘’We now have to wait until 10 May for FAW’s decision on Tier 2 Certification and promotion to the newly formed Championship North for next season.  We have submitted our application and are quite confident the certification and promotion will be achieved’’

Will the Town be Promoted and win a Treble?

30th April 2019


Tomorrow night will determine the champions and runners up of the Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division 1 Championship. Will Llangefni Town Football Club at last be promoted back to the Tier 2 following a few seasons of only just missing out? The Town currently tops the Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division 1 and with only one game to play is 3 points ahead of second placed rivals Bodedern, the opponents in the last game of the season at Talwrn Road this Wednesday kick off 7.30pm. Bodedern will need to both win the game and overturn a significant goal difference to win the league championship. Two Anglesey Clubs will pit their wits and skills against each other in a battle for the honours. This match will be a thriller to decide the league championship and is not to be missed.


Formal presentations will be made by the League sponsors, Lock Stock Self Storage, immediately after the game. Wednesday promises to be a brilliant evening for spectators to watch this key match and then celebrate a marvellous season for Llangefni Town FC.


2018/19 has been a spectacular season for Llangefni Town FC at both senior and junior level. The first team has a real chance of promotion, it has put up outstanding performances in all Cup competitions notably beating Llanelli from the Welsh Premiership 1-0 in the Welsh Cup before going out to Llandudno from the Welsh Premiership in the last 16. However, there was success in the Cookson Cup Final on 19th March beating Penrhyndeudraeth 1-0 at Porthmadog. The Club now meets Llanrwst United in the Mawddach Cup Final at Conwy on 11th May 2019. Therefore, Llangefni Town has a chance of a treble of 2 Cup wins and League Champions.


The Reserve Team is steadily progressing, and the Juniors have had success with the Under 16’s winning their league for the second year in succession and the North Wales Coast Cup. They are also involved in 2 other Cup Finals and the Under 14’s have also won their league for the second year in succession.


Llangefni Town is a club with ambition currently drawing up medium term plans to develop very good quality football teams, to improve the ground and its facilities as well as to develop sustainable options for creating a Community based Club for the Town to be proud of.
