QUARTER FINAL WIN

17th February 2019


Llangefni Town will face Llandudno Albion in the Semi Final of the Mawddach Cup following a 1-0 hard fought quarter final win over Barmouth and Dyffryn.  


Llangefni enjoyed plenty of possession in the first half, but failed to take advantage with forwards Mathew Jones, Harry Galeotti and Liam Morris missing a host of chances.  


Early in the second half Cefni squandered another chance to open the scoring, Kehoe’s ball through to Sean Pritchard who’s cross to the far post was met by Morris to miss-cue his shot from 10 yards out.  


The only goal of the match came after 58 minutes, a break down the left by Liam Morris, his cross into the 6 yard box for Mathew Jones to get the final touch from 3 yards out. 


Barmouth came really close to getting back on level terms on 75 minutes, hitting the crossbar with a Bobby Griffiths header from a corner.  The visitors continued to press for the equaliser, but Cefni held on firm to book their place in their second Semi Final of the season.  


Next Saturday we are back to league action away to Llandudno Junction. 2:30 kickoff.

FAW TROPHY DEFEAT

9th February 2019

Llangefni Town have been knocked out of the FAW Trophy at the quarter final stage, following a 1-0 loss against local rivals Bodedern Athletic.  Chances were limited throughout the match, with both sides putting in strong defensive performances. 


Although Llangefni Town enjoyed plenty of possession during the first half, they struggled to create any goal scoring opportunities. The first real chance of the match came early in the second half, Hayden Clarke cross to Steven Whittaker, his header going inches over bar for the visitors. Moments later Marvin Pritchard clipped the inside of the post for Cefni with a shot from a narrow angle.  


It was looking like the match was going into extra time, but on 89 minutes Cefni lost the ball in possession, Bodedern attacked down the left, an inch perfect cross by Whittaker to the oncoming Ryan Taylor to volley in the winner. 


Cup action ‘again’ next week, Mawddach cup this time at home against Barmouth & Dyffryn.

CHRIS ROBERTS SAYS HOW PROUD HE IS OF HIS SQUAD AND SAYS THANK YOU TO THE FANS!!

27th January 2019

Not the result we had hoped for yesterday but i am so proud of the lads, every single squad member are a credit to the club and they gave it everything. To reach the last 16 of the Welsh Cup just shows how good of a squad we have and i honestly believe this run we have had in the cup and yesterday’s game will make us even stronger going forward and make us want it even more. To beat a Welsh Prem side and give another a tough game and match them for most of it is brilliant. I would like to wish Iwan and all at Llandudno FC the very best of luck for the rest of the season. 

 


To see over 700 people at the game yesterday was unbelievable and just goes to show how far we have come in such a short space of time, i cant thank you enough for coming and supporting the lads. We did our best and i hope you could all see the effort we put in. 


As a club i believe we are going in the right direction and giving Llangefni a football club to be proud of. I will continue to do my best for this club and try and take them as high as i can, and keep bringing young talented footballers through and give them a chance of playing for the club. 


The work that goes on behind the scenes is incredible we have a committee of hard working VOLUNTEERS who go above and beyond for this football club, without them there simply wouldn’t be Llangefni Town FC so from me and the lads THANK YOU.


We dust ourselves off and go again now next week were we will play Llanrug in a semi final. I hope to see u all there again and hope to give u a final to look forward to.


Thank you all

Chris

“I WANT TO DO IT FOR OUR FANS AND THE TOWN OF LLANGEFNI” says manager Chris Roberts.

“I WANT TO DO IT FOR OUR FANS AND THE TOWN OF LLANGEFNI” says manager Chris Roberts.

A message from your gaffer!


“I want to do it for our fans and the town of Llangefni” says manager Chris Roberts.

To be in the last 16 of the Welsh cup is fantastic and a real credit to the hard work everyone at the club has put in. I am a Llangefni lad and when i first took over as manager of my hometown football club i said that i wanted to take the club back up the leagues and give the people of Llangefni a football club they can be proud of. Getting a win on Saturday would mean everything to me and i want to do it for our fans and the people of Llangefni.

Confidence is high amongst the players and staff and we know the importance of working as a team an getting the basics right on Saturday if we are to get anything out of this game. No-one expected us to beat Llanelli in the last round, but we did and in truth we could have won by more than 1-0. We will go into the game full of belief and once again give it everything we’ve got. I believe in my players and fully expect us to give Llandudno a good game, we know it will be a tough test but one we are all looking forward to.

These sort of games are the ones you always want to be involved in, to face another Welsh Premier league side is why clubs like us enter the JD Welsh Cup. Llandudno are not getting the rub of the green at present but have also shown how good they can be in the two games against Caernarfon over Christmas so we know it will be another tough test for us and that we will need to be at our best if we are to get anything out of the game.

I have done a lot of work on Llandudno in the build up to this game having been to watch them a few times and spoken to a few people, we will be fully prepared come kick off.

The supporters turned out in numbers for the last round and having been stopped on the streets by some of our fans over the past few weeks i know that they cant wait to come and support us again on Saturday.

So a message to our fans “see you all on Saturday, we appreciate your support and you guys really are the twelfth man. We will give you everything and look to get you the win, cmon the town!!!!

PENALTY SHOOTOUT WIN

20th January 2019

Llangefni Town beat Blaenau Ffestiniog Amateurs 5-4 on penalties to reach the Mawddach Challenge Cup quarter finals, following a tense goalless draw. 


Cefni began on the front foot, with strikers Alan Mark Owen and Mathew Jones missing good scoring opportunities early on, Blaenau looked dangerous on the counter, but their best chance of the half came from a freekick going narrowly wide from 18 yards out.  


A cagey second half followed as Cefni tested Blaenau’s defence with a series of attacks, Mathew Jones thought he opened the scoring on 51 minutes, with his shot hitting the crossbar from 20 yards out.   Moments later, Liam Morris had a great chance at the far post following great work from Cai Powell-Roberts down the right.  


On 70 minutes, good interchanging play by Blaenau and a through ball to Ian Roberts who found him through on goal, only to be denied by a great save from Liam Ewing in Cefni’s goal.  5 minutes later, it was the turn of Gethin Jones in goal for Blaenau to pull off the save of the match from a thunderbolt shot by Sean Pritchard.  


Llangefni had the better of extra-time  Alan Mark Owen shot going  wide from 5 yards, but penalties felt inevitable, and when they came the Town did not disappoint scoring all of their penalties. Goalkeeper Liam Ewing took the plaudits, saving one of the penalties to clinch victory.


Next up is the big one, on Saturday 26 January v Llandudno FC at home in the JD Welsh Cup last 16.   Kickoff is 2:30.

FAW Trophy Victory

Llangefni continued with their possession game and the opening came on 22 minutes, Marvin Pritchard’s ball across the area for Craig Roberts to tap in from 4 yards out.   


Llanrug first chance came on 30min, Dylan Owen’s free kick going narrowly over the bar.  


Llanrug picked up the tempo in the second half, but were limited to set pieces and long range efforts which were comfortably dealt with by Sinclair in Cefni’s goal.  


The visitors extend their lead on 70 minutes, through ball from Alan Mark, to Kevin Lloyd on left who cut in to finish well from 15 yards out.  


87th minute, a Kev lloyd free free kick was whipped in to Alan Mark who’s shot pulled off a fantastic save from United’s keeper Dylan Roberts, the rebound fell kindly to Iwan Jones to smash in the third.  ( PICTURED)


The victory was sealed in the 90th minute when substitute Cai Powell Roberts was pulled down in area. Alan Mark Owen stepped up to slot the ball home against his former club to finish off an impressive win for the town.  0-4
