LLANBERIS RES 2-1 LLANGEFNI RES
4th October 2015
Llangefni Reserves can count themselves unlucky not to come away with at least a point after a very close game at Llanberis. The visitors made slow start and were 2-0 down after 20 minutes. Cefni settled down after the second goal and started playing the football they are capable of. Connor Gordon was denied twice by the goalkeeper while Aled Roberts made a brilliant save from a free kick at the other end. Llangefni came out for the second half knowing the next goal was crucial and got back into the game after 50 minutes when Llion Vaughn Jones got in behind the defence before producing a cool finish to make it 2-1. The vistors were growing in confidence and could sense an equaliser but Llanberis were awarded a penalty against the run of play. Keenan Latham made a genuine attempt to play the ball but slightly mistimed his tackle. The striker stayed on his feet and missed the target with his shot but the referee pointed to the spot. The penalty struck the outside of the post and Cefni were still in the game. James Mcminimee came close with a long range effort but Llanberis held firm and got the three points. 4 games into the season and the youngsters have suffered 2 very narrow defeats as well as drawing 2 games they could have easily won against tough opposition. There's no doubt results will improve as the season progresses and they will be looking for 3 points at Holyhead Hotspur next Saturday.
LLANGEFNI TOWN 1-1 GLAN CONWY
2nd October 2015
Llangefni were left frustrated after a 1-1 draw at home to Glan Conwy. Steve Kehoe opened the scoring with a wonder strike from the half way line after 9 minutes. It was a goal David Beckham would have been proud of and a great way for Kehoe to open his account since his return to the club. Cefni remained in control for the rest of the half but were unable to increase their advantage. A mist had descended during the half-time interval but the referee decided that he could see enough for the game to continue. The turning point in the game came early in the second half. There was a bit of a scuffle after James Saxon was fouled just outside the box. Anthony Hughes appeared to go in to try and calm things down but the referee was adamant that he'd seen a kick and sent him off. The Llangefni dugout were very disappointed by this and with his decision to not even have a word with any Glan Conwy player. The game continued and the visitors took full advantage of having an extra man when Joe Chaplin equalised 10 minutes later with a header. Deion Evans came on to make his debut for 'The Town' and helped ensure Llangefni got a point from a game that would have been very different without the dubious red card. Next Saturday we are home against Llanrwst, 2.30pm kick off.

LLANRWST UTD 1-3 LLANGEFNI TOWN
27th September 2015
Llangefni got back to winning ways with a 3-1 win at Llanrwst. Cefni were without the suspended Iwan Jones and Steven Kehoe which meant 18 year old Dafydd Jones made his first start for the club up front and 16 year old Keenan Latham kept his place at centre back after a good performance at Glan Conwy last week. Craig Evans opened the scoring 25 minutes into the game with a penalty after Anthony Hughes was brought down inside the box. Callum Parry scored an equaliser 5 minutes later when Llanrwst were awarded a penalty of their own after another foul inside the box. After a scrappy first half Chris Roberts changed the formation and Llangefni started playing better football as well as creating more chances. Anthony Hughes hit the post and Craig Evans back heel was saved by the keeper. Evans second goal came with 15 minutes to go after he was first to the rebound when Paul Rowlands cross/shot hit the bar, 2-1. Connor Gordon who's been in great form for the reserves came off the bench to seal the win for 'The Town' in injury time when he pounced on the rebound after the goalkeeper failed to gather the ball. It was an important win for Cefni and Chris Roberts will be looking for more of the same from his team when Glan Conwy visit Lon Talwrn on Friday night, 7.30pm kick off.

This saturday we are away to Llanrwst United in the League. Manager Chris Roberts will be back after being away on holiday and he will no doubt be looking to get his team back to winning ways. As always we would appreciate your support for the lads once more.
WELSH TROPHY ROUND 2: GLAN CONWY 2-1 LLANGEFNI
20th September 2015
A very young Llangefni side lost 2-1 to Glan Conwy in the second round of the Welsh Trophy. With 9 first team players either injured or unavailable, Connor Gordon, Keenan Latham, Llyr Roberts and Steven Jones came into the squad after impressing for the reserves in midweek against Porthmadog. New signing Jack Williams came straight into the team and showed enough quality to suggest he'll be a very good addition to the squad. After a goaless first half, Glan Conwy took the lead when James Saxon was adjudged to have committed a foul in the box after jumping for a header. Kieran Williams dived the right way but couldn't quite get a hand to Joe Chaplin's penalty. Llangefni equalised after 70 minutes when Cai Powell Roberts' shot deflected passed the keeper and into the net. It was the 16 year old defender's first goal for the club. Steve Kehoe was sent off five minutes later after receiving a harsh second yellow card for a foul, and from the resulting free kick, Chaplin scored his second of the game to make it 2-1 to Glan Conwy. The Llangefni players and coaches thought there was a possible offside but the referee allowed the goal because he was in the wrong position to make that decision. Having told the club linesman not to flag for offside before the game, he should have been level with the defensive line but he decided to stand outside the box instead. Another new signing Dafydd Jones hit the bar with a powerful shot with 5 to go and Iwan Jones complained to the ref when he gave a goal kick after his rebound took an obvious deflection. His protests resulted in him receiving a second yellow card and Llangefni finished the game with 9 men. I think the less said about the referee on the day the better and we would prefer to concentrate on the encouraging performances of the youngsters who came into the team. Next Saturday, we are away to Llanrwst Utd in the league, 2.30pm kick off.
Jack Williams signs
17th September 2015
We are pleased to announce the signing of defender Jack Williams from Gwalchmai. Manager Chris Roberts is delighted with the signing and said 'he is a player I've had my eye on for some time and we were determined to make him a Cefni player. I'm confident he will add further quality to our squad'.
Welcome to Llangefni Town FC from all at the club.
LLANGEFNI RES 2-2 PORTHMADOG RES
17th September 2015
Llangefni Reserves earned a valuable point against Porthmadog at Lon Talwrn in the Welsh Alliance Reserve League West. With the narrow defeat in Port still fresh in the memory, Cefni were determined to put things right but went behind after 11 minutes when Shaun Parry found himself in acres space on the right before finishing low, across the keeper into the far corner. Llangefni responded well and could have equalised 5 minutes before half-after Keenan Latham was fouled inside the box. Top scorer Connor Gordon stepped up but blazed his penalty over the bar. Like any good goalscorer, his head didn't go down and his powerful header from a James Mcminimee corner made it 1-1 on the hour. This young Llangefni team containing six players who are only 16 and one 17 year old were now on top and taking the game to the visitors who were reduced to 10 men after 70 minutes after a dangerous tackle on Llyr Roberts. Gethin Davies and Mcminimee had good chances to score the winner but fair play to Porthmadog for hanging in there and against the run of play, with less than 10 minutes to go Shaun Parry beat the offside trap before beating Aled Roberts with a cool finish. It would have been hard to take a defeat after such a good performance and with time running out, Connor Gordon held off a defender before rolling it passed the keeper into an empty net. Llangefni pushed for the winner but Port held firm and the game finished 2-2. After the game, Llangefni Reserves manager Gafyn Buckland had this to say. "It was probably our best performance of the season so far and if we keep on playing like that, it won't be long before we get our first win. This is a very determined group of players who never give up and what pleased me the most is the quality we showed on the ball in the second half and the chances we created. As a team, I've got no doubt we will get stronger and stronger as the season goes on.
