RESERVES DEFEATED AT LLANBERIS

28th August 2018

Llangefni Town Reserves suffered their second defeat in as many games at Llanberis on Saturday. There were five 16 year olds in the starting line up and another 4 on the bench as Cefni struggled to deal with the constant long balls, corners and throw ins aimed at their tall, physical strikers. Llanberis were 2-0 up inside ten minutes before Aaron Rickards pulled one back with a low drive from outside the box. The home side scored another 2 from corners to make it 4-1 before Gafyn Buckland pulled another goal back from close range after good work from Rickards to make it 4-2 before half-time.

The visitors started the second half brightly but were soon 5-2 down when Llanberis caught Cefni on the counter attack before unleashing a powerful drive from the edge of the box. Llangefni's youngsters grew into the game and defended a lot better as a team in the second half. No doubt the physical nature of the opposition was a shock to the system for many of the lads but they showed good character and adapted well to the long balls in the second half. It's been a tough start for this team but there are plenty of encouraging signs and lots to be positive about. If the lads show the same attitude and willingness to improve throughout the season there's no doubt the results will improve in the coming weeks.     

IMPRESSIVE DERBY DAY WIN

22nd August 2018

IMPRESSIVE DERBY DAY WIN

Llangefni Town continued their impressive start to their league campaign with a comfortable 2-0 win away to newly promoted side Bodedern Athletic.  


Due to injuries and work commitments Cefni were forced to make changes to the side that beat Llandudno Albion at the weekend, with Sean Pritchard, Matthew Jones and debutant Kevin Lloyd all starting.  


The match saw an attacking Cefni side dominate the opening minutes with the in-form striker Liam Morris scoring on 25 minute, getting on the end of a good cross from the right by Matthew Jones.  Cefni nearly doubled their lead straight away, with Sean Pritchard firing a volley from 20 yards to force a brilliant save from Jordan Taylor in goal for the hosts.  


The Town doubled their lead minute into the second half, defender Dan Thomas meeting a half cleared cross with a volley into the roof of the net from 12 yards.  


Bodedern were limited to playing long balls and striker Steven Whittaker was kept quiet all night by the ever impressive Andy Sinclair and Dan ‘Bambi’ Thomas at the heart of Llangefni’s defence.  


Llangefni did not slow down and kept on attacking, good chances to extend the lead came from Matthew Jones, Liam Morris and Cai Powell-Roberts but the match finished Bodedern Athletic 0 - 2 Llangefni Town.  


Scorers:

Liam Morris, Dan Thomas

 

Another solid performance, clean sheet and three points away from home. We are on the road again on Saturday away to Prestatyn Sports.  2:30 kickoff.  The post code to their ground ar Gronant is LL19 7UL. 


5 STAR PERFORMANCE FROM THE TOWN

19th August 2018

5 STAR PERFORMANCE FROM THE TOWN

Llangefni travelled to the highly rated Llandudno Albion yesterday knowing that they needed to be at their best to get the 3pts. With Chris Saxon, Callum Mcminimee, Iwan Jones, Sean Pritchard, Paul Rowlands and new signing Kev Lloyd all unavailable, Llangefni had to make a few changes to the team that beat Llanrug during mid-week. 

 


Llangefni started well and saw most of the possession in the first 10 minutes. On 15 minutes Llangefni were awarded a freekick on the corner of the 18yrd box after a foul on Liam Morris. Steve Kehoe delivered a great ball into the box with Alan Mark scoring a great half volley past the Albion Keeper. It was soon 0-2 to Llangefni when a great run from captain James Saxon saw him get on the end of a through ball from Marvin Pritchard before delivering the ball across goal for Liam Morris to convert. Albion by now could not contain Llangefni and resorted to a few bad tackles, Marvin Pritchard and Steve Kehoe feeling the brunt of them.  Just before half time manager Chris Roberts made a change and brought Craig Roberts on to try and get at Albion even more. (HT 0-2)


The second half got under way with Albion having a real go at Llangefni but couldn’t quite get a shot on target. Cai Powell struck a shot from all of 35yards out which took a wicked deflection and looped over the Albion Keeper making it 3 without reply for Llangefni. By now Llangefni were well on top again and both Liam Morris and Alan Mark had great chances to increase the lead but just couldn’t direct their headers into the back of the net. A corner kick saw Dan “Bambi” Thomas’s effort cleared off the line by an Albion defender. Chris made two substitutions bringing on Cameron Jones and Matthew Jones and we didn’t have to wait long for them to make an impact with Matthew jones chasing down a back pass to the Albion keeper  causing him to miss kick the ball and Matthew took the ball and finished into an empty net. Some great link up play between both Matthew and Cameron once again saw Cameron place a low shot into the bottom left corner of the net from just inside the box to make it 5. On 88 minutes Llangefni Goalkeeper had his first save to make parrying a low cross from Albion which ended up as a corner. 


We caught up with manager Chris Roberts after the match:

“A result worthy of the performance today i feel, the lads once again were outstanding. I asked them before the match to go and push on from the win at Llanrug in midweek, i wanted to see the same tempo off the ball where we chased everything down and not gave them a moments peace, i thought the defence were solid once again and we never looked like conceding to be honest. It was great to score 5 and especially for new signings Liam Morris and Alan Mark to get their first competitive goals for the club. We could have scored more to be honest and found ourselves in really good positions to cause them problems. Whats also pleasing is to see we had 6 missing again today and that we have squad capable of rotation and can adapt to different oppositions, situations and style of play. Another clean sheet is always good making it 3 out of 3 now. The lads are working really hard and there is a great togetherness in the dressing room. We look forward to The next game now.”


Full time result:

Llandudno Albion 0-5 Llangefni Town


Scorers:

Alan Mark Owen, Liam Morris, Cai Powell-Roberts, Matthew Jones, Cameron Jones

KEV LLOYD BACK AT LLANGEFNI!

17th August 2018

KEV LLOYD BACK AT LLANGEFNI!

We are pleased to announce the signing of the prolific attacking player Kev Lloyd. Kev has played for Llangefni in the past and we are delighted to see him back.

Manager Chris Roberts was delighted to get the deal done:

"Kev is a player i tried to get in at the beginning of the season but with Charlie going as manager at Llanrug he opted to sign for him at Llanrug. Kev is a great signing and will give us another dimension to our attacking play. There is no doubt that Kev knows how to find the back of the net having done so consistently at a high level for many years. I am looking forward to working with Kev and having him join up with the rest of the squad.

Can I also thank Charlie, Emyr and all at Llanrug FC who helped with the transfer."

Welcome to Llangefni Town Kev......
