We lose 6-2 away to Port
11th December 2011
John Owen (in Cefni's new colours) turning Austin for his goal.
We started todays match with few changes from last week, Joe Garner was back after flu as left back, Shaun Williams dropped to centre half partnering Dylan Jones to cover for the suspended Lee Hughes and Sion Davies keeping his place as right back. We played 5 in midfield, Luke Omahoney and Adam Jones on the wings with Matt Devine and Kevin Garland joining skipper Rory Courlander in the middle with John Owen playing as a lone striker.
It took a bit of time for the match to gain momentum with the first chance coming from a Luke Omahoney left foot shot forcing a good save from Richard Harvey. The resulting corner caused some problems in the Porthmadog area and a back heel by Garland was headed off the line by Ryan Davies.
On 11 minutes, a harsh free kick was awarded against Cefni, it was swung in by right back Clive Williams and met by a powerful header from former Cefni skipper Grahame Austin to put the home side 1 up.
Even though Port was getting a lot of the ball, chances were limited as Cefni was solid in defence and had better of the chances on the counter with Luke Omahoney and Matt Devine causing the home side some problems.
An excellent diagonal ball from Courlander found Divine in space on the right of the box but the shot was off target. OMahoney at this stage was causing all kind of problems to the home side left full back Chris Williams but when well placed he failed to take advantage pulling his shot wide on a few occasions.
Port were always looking dangerous to extend their lead, Joe Garner headed Rhys Roberts back post header off the line and Holden did well to touch Darren Thomas 18 yard shot for a corner.
On 33 minutes, free kick for Cefni on half way line, taken by Garner was passed to John Owen outside the box, who turned Austin, setting himself up to shoot well under Harvey into the net for the equaliser.
On 45th minute, Aaron Richmonds and Austin combined well on the left finding Rhys Roberts who crossed to find Marcus Orlik to shoot from 8 yards, the ball hitting the bar before going in putting Porthmadog 2-1 up at half time.
Porthmadog changed their style in the second half, Kehoe sitting deep in midfield allowing their full backs to push forward overlapping and outnumbering us at times. It was an overlapping run down the left by Aaron Richmond on 52nd minutes who was put through by Chris Williams, Richmond crossing for Darren Thomas to volley in an excellent 3rd for Port.
Port were now in charge and pushed for a fourth goal, this came in the 72nd minute, playing along the back line an excellent ball from Austin released Darren Thomas wide right whose near post cross was met by Rhys Roberts directing his header well into the corner of the net.
Cefni who was chasing the match, change their formation to a more attacking one in the hope of getting one back and on 78th minute, one came with Sion Owen reacting well with a header from a well taken corner by Prosser to make it 4-2.
The goal bought some false hope to the traveling supporters, but it wasnt to be as Port extended their lead, a good run down the right by substitute Gareth Jones Evans on 84th minute, his accurate cross provided Rhys Roberts with an identical chance to the one he scored earlier, which the skipper took making it 5-2. Jones Evans then in added time broke again past Garner cutting into the box and firing low past Holden to complete the scoring. The game ended with the hosts being comfortable 6-2 winners.
Our away days continues, our fourth in as many weeks as we travel to Ruthin Town next, hoping to bounce back from our recent defeats. Reserves will hope to have their first outing for over a month, a cup match at home to the impressive Llanerchymedd.
Unlucky to loose 3-2
4th December 2011
Kicking down field first half we got off to the worst possible start, couple of corners fell to the home side Penrhyncoch, they were unlucky not to go 1 up hitting bar on 10 min, but the first goal came to the home side moments later on 12 minutes when a quickly taken free kick was floated in for Jonathan Folingo to score with a free header at the far post. The second came on 15th minutes, their long balls and direct style of play causing us problems and it was a free kick this time scored directly from 20 yards by Mark Gornall.
On 20 min, Cefni came more into the game, good passing move by Kevin Garland and Luke Omahoney with the ball finding its way to John Owen outside the area who turned his man and first time shot flew sweetly into the far top corner. Cefni boosted by the goal stepped up a gear with both Omahoney and Garland again coming close. On 30 minutes a ball over the top by Devine fell to Garland once again, who was bought down in the box when through on goal, nothing was given, Garland was the quickest to get up to play on and slotted the ball in well from close range to equalise. On 44th min it was another set piece by Penrhyncoch, this time a corner that wasnt dealt with by visiting keeper Steffan Holden, fell to Jonathan Forlingo scoring his second to put the home side 3-2 up. And again on half time another corner met by a powerful header hitting the cross bar. Eventful half with plenty of goals. 3-2.
Second half it was all different, and it turned out to be less of an attacking game and more of a midfield battle with Penrhyncoch putting 5 across the middle with one up front defending their lead and inviting us to break them down. Cefni were trying to play football, spreading the play well at times. Couple of good chances came our way a cross field ball on the counter by Garland found Omahoney out wide, took on a couple of men with his shot going inches wide. Shortly after a cracking run by John Owen crossing the ball to Garland who missed an open goal from 6 yards. Llangefni continued to pressure but Penrhyn was well organised, defending well and always looked dangerous to extend their lead at set pieces but our defence held firm.
The home side was bringing out all the tricks, slowing the game down at dead ball situations, fouling us and kicking the ball out of play wasting time when we were looking dangerous. Cefni continued to pressure in the dying minutes with Sion Owen and Rory Courlander coming close. The game ended with the home side hanging on to a 3-2 win, and Centre half Lee Hughes was sent off in frustration for a second yellow.
Faultless performance by all the lads, on another day we would have won, and would have given something for the large traveling away support to smile about. High flying Port away up next, if we play like we know we can we will give them run for their money.
Reserves match away to Menai Bride was called off because of a waterlogged pitch.
Twigg steps down as reserve manager!

Reserve manager Peter Twigg has resigned from his position after 6 month in charge. The club would like to thank Peter for the work he has done re building the reserves into early title contenders.
Assistant manager Dyfed Thomas has agreed to take over the reigns as manager, we wish him well and are more than confidence he will continue the good work.
Meanwhile, two players have left the club, Dave Griffith to Aberffraw and David Jones to Llanerchymedd. We wish them well.
Ymddiheuriad | Apology
3rd December 2011
Deallwn fel clwb, bod rhai aelodau o’r cyhoedd ac aelodau o’r clwb yn anfodlon oherwydd fod y tim cyntaf wedi chwarae gem ar 26 Tachwedd, ac oherwydd hyn wedi dangos amharch i’r diweddar Tom Wyn Roberts a‘i deulu. Hoffem wneud yn glir bod hyn yn hollol anfwriadol ac ein bod yn ymddiheuro i bawb yn enwedig i’r teulu, os ydyw hyn wedi creu loes a phoen.
Cyn y gem yn Llanrheadr-ym-Mochnant trefnwyd i bob aelod o dim Llangefni wisgo ’band’ du fel arwydd o barch tug at Tom, yn ogystal, cafwyd dau funud o dawelwch gan y ddau dim er cof amdano. Roedd y rhelyw o’r pwyllgor a aelodau’r Clwb yn yr angladd yn cynnwys y Llywydd, a roedd y gem y peth diwethaf ar meddylia pawb.
We understand that many members of the community and the club are upset because our first team played their fixture on 26 November, and that this action was disrespectful to the late Tom Wyn Roberts and his family. May we state that our action was totally unintentional and we apologize to everyone, especially to the family if this action caused any concern or grief.
Before the game at Llanrheadr-ym-Mochnant the Club had arranged that every member of the Llangefni team wore a black band as a mark of respect for Tom, also a two minutes silence was observed by both teams in his memory. At Saturday’s funeral the majority of our Committee and Club members were present including the Club’s President, and the match was the last thing on everyone’s minds.
