YNYS MON MENS FOOTBALL TEAM
24th November 2016
Our first team manager Chris Roberts has been selected as part of the coaching staff of the men's Ynys Mon Island games team and they are looking to raise some much needed money to attend and compete at the International Island Games in June 2017 at Gotland, Sweden.
The money raised will be used to subsidise the cost of competing at this prestigious event. The cost is approximately £700 per person and they will have a total of 20 players and 4 coaching staff looking to go over and represent the island in Gotland.
This competition is the pinnacle for many footballers from the Island. It will be the only opportunity they have of competing at a major international event. They do not want the cost of competing to be a barrier from promising youngsters having the opportunity to attend/compete.
There are many areas of deprivation on the Island and the players selected for the squad would be extremely grateful of any contribution to help them attend the event. Your kind contribution will help them give these footballers a chance of playing in an international tournament.
I'm sure they would appreciate any kind of donation. Here is the link to the Island games donation page: http://gofundme.com/ynys-monfootball
FAW TROPHY: LLANGEFNI TOWN 4-1 PWLLHELI
20th November 2016
Llangefni are through to the last 16 of the FAW Trophy after a comfortable 4-1 victory against Pwllheli at Lon Talwrn. Craig Roberts gave Cefni an early lead with a good finish from inside the box. Sean Pritchard soon made it 2-0 after his initia miss kick fooled the defenders but he kept his composer to beat the keeper from close range at the second attempt. Pwllheli took advantage of some sloppy defending to pull a goal back before half-time. Llangefni upped the tempo in the second half and restored their two goal advantage when Matthew Jones' shot was saved by the keeper but Craig Roberts was first to the rebound and couldn't miss from 6 yards out. Two substitutes combined to put the game beyond doubt. Connor Gordon found himself through on goal and unselfishly squared the ball to Correy Sinnott for a tap in, 4-1. We could face a team from South Wales in the next round but I'm sure whoever we get will be tough opponents. Next Saturday we face Glantraeth away in the Cookson Cup, 1.45pm kick off.
18th November 2016
Tomorrow sees us entertain Pwllheli in the FAW Trophy with a 1:30pm kick off. A win would see us through to the last 16 of the competition so another big game. Llangefni will be looking to pick up where they left off against Caernarfon Town where they were outstanding on the day, but this time they will be hoping for a different outcome after 90mins.

A WORD FROM THE GAFFER
6th November 2016
"What can i say, what a game of football that was. I said in the match day programme yesterday that we would go into the game with no fear. My pre-match team talk was for the lads to give it everything they had and go home after the final whistle with no regrets, and i can safely say they did that and more yesterday. We had a game plan and even though going down 1-0 in the opening minutes wasn't in the script we stuck to the plan and gave Caernarfon a real game. I always knew that this match was going to be tough but also had full confidence in my lads that they could compete with Caernarfon. To come from behind 4 times and to score in the last minutes of normal time and extra time really does show the character of my squad they kept going right till the end and never gave up. They were a real credit not only to the club but to the town of Llangefni. To bring on 3 substitutes and them all score shows the strength we have in our squad, i was really pleased for Corey Sinnott to get a goal on his first appearance back for us after his lengthy injury. I was asked after the game who my man of the match was and i said that i couldn't choose but not only that i couldn't but also didn't want to single anyone out as i thought everyone deserved full credit for that performance yesterday. We need to use that performance and push on now starting with the FAW Trophy a week Saturday. The supporters were outstanding yesterday and seeing them clap us at the end of the match really made me proud to not only be from Llangefni but also get to be first team manager. They really did get behind us and there is no doubt that they contributed to our performance, they were in full voice throughout. We were also clapped off the field by all the caernarfon fans and i would like to thank them for that. I wish Iwan and all at Caernarfon Town all the best in the next round and for the rest of the season."
Cmon the town
BRILLIANT CEFNI LOOSE OUT ON PENALTIES AGAINST THE CYMRU ALLIANCE CHAMPIONS
6th November 2016
Llangefni Town were knocked out of the Welsh Cup after a heartbreaking penalty shoot-out in front of a bumper crowd at Talwrn Road.
In form ,Cefni welcomed Huws Gray Alliance Champions Caernarfon Town in the second round of the cup. It was the visitors who was quickest off the mark, going 1-0 up in the third minute, Jamie Breese finding the back of the net, tapping in at the far post after debutant Kenny Hughes in Cefni's goal could only get a hand to a Cory Williams cross.
Iwan Jones was first to threaten for Cefni when he managed to unsettle the Cofis stopper Keighan Jones in the box and turned quickly to shoot at the target, only to find Clive Williams well positioned to block his effort. The Cofis nearly doubled their lead when Joe Williams broke upfield and set up Kevin Lloyd with a pass behind the home defence. The striker got his effort on target but Hughes was quick off his line to keep the ball out.
The hosts were matching Caernarfon and began to get a real foothold in the game as the half hour mark approached, with James Saxon, Sean Pritchard and Dafydd Jones in midfield starting to enjoy some possession and were always looking to attack down the flanks where Iwan Jones and Paul Rowlands looked dangerous.
A quick break on the left in the thirty eighth minute with good interchange of passes between Iwan Jones and Sean Pritchard resulted in a cross into the area by Iwan which Mathew Jones met with his head to steer into the corner of the Caernarfon goal. An excellent goal that added to the excellent cup-tie atmosphere. 1-1 Half Time.
Having held the visitors back for long periods after the break, the Cofis nearly regained their lead in the seventieth minute, Brease linked up well with Darren Thomas in the box to fashion enough space for an effort at goal, the hitman saw the ball rebound off the post before being cleared away by the home defence.
It was not all Caernarfon Town though and Clive Williams came to his side’s rescue once more with an important block that kept a Iwan Jones effort away from testing Keighan Jones.
Llangefni's defensive quartet of Daniel Thomas, Alun Roberts Cai Roberts and Gari Owen had been excellent. But on the eighty fifth minute, Caernarfon got back in front when Tom Quinn powered his way past three defenders, before placing the ball beyond Hughes and into his net. The Cofis’ delight was short-lived however, with the match in its’ final seconds and Llangefni throwing everything forward, substitute Cory Sinott finished smartly to make it 2-2 with is first touch of the match and taking the match into Extra Time.
With the home fans in full voice Cory Williams took possession of the ball thirty yards from goal, beat his marker and struck powerfully past Hughes from twenty five yards, the ball dipping as it reached inside the far corner of the home net with Llangefni going behind for the third time. Llangefni were still not ready to lie down. After waves of attack when the ball escaped the clutches of Town stopper Jones from a corner, Anthony Hughes took advantage to slot the ball in to the bottom corner to put his side level for a third time.
There were just six minutes remaining when Darren Thomas was felled in the penalty area and Nathan Craig put the Cofis ahead at 4-3 but, as had been the case all afternoon, with less than a minute remaining on the clock, Llangefni showed excellent character to come back again when the ball found its way to Alun Roberts, who managed to skip around his defender before being fouled in the area. Penalty! Craig Evans stepped up and smashed the ball in to the top corner of the net, 4-4 forcing a penalty shoot out to decide the victors.
A cruel way to end such an exciting match. Unfortunately the shootout did not go Cefnis way, Corey Sinott saw his penalty saved by Keighan Jones, whilst Craig Evans hit the woodwork with his effort. This gave Danny Sullivan the opportunity to put Caernarfon through, sending Kenny Hughes the wrong way.
We may not be in the draw for the next round on Monday but we can be proud of the team, the way they performed was a credit to the town of Llangefni, To come back 4 times against the Cymru Alliance Champions showed real character.
Well done boys, cmon the town!
GLAN CONWY 3-4 LLANGEFNI TOWN
30th October 2016
Llangefni are up to fourth after a 4-3 win at Glan Conwy. Goals from Paul Rowlands, Matthew Jones, Anthony Hughes and an own goal put Cefni 4-1 up at one stage but goalkeeper Liam Ewing's harsh red card made life harder but we held firm and kept our impressive 8 match unbeaten run going. Our Welsh Cup match against Caernarfon Town on Saturday is a 2.00pm kick off and we would really appreciate your support.
Llangefni Reserves earned a draw against Caernarfon Town Reserves at Lon Talwrn. This was a massive improvement on the 8-1 defeat to the same opponents in August and shows the youngsters are now adapting to senior football after a tough start. Caernarfon took the lead after 20 minutes but Cefni equalised early in the second half when Corey Sinnott's shot found the top corner. Both teams had chances to win it but a draw was a fair result.
