Chris staying on to finish what he started

CHRIS ROBERTS will remain as the manager of Llangefni Town Football Club next season. Chris has turned down the opportunity to go to another club in the Cymru Alliance so he can “finish what he started”

Roberts had a “very productive meeting” with the committee yesterday and confirmed that he will be staying to ‘finish what he has started’ to lead Cefni’s challenge for the title next season.

‘’Nothing has changed, the ambition of the club and this squad is to win and that is an ambition that drives us all,” he said. ‘’My aim when I became the manager of Llangefni was to take the club back up the Welsh Football pyramid, and I am staying to finish what I’ve started.’’

He continued ‘’we have narrowly missed out on promotion three seasons in a row, finishing third, joint second and runners up again this season.  I am already putting plans in place for next season and I am confident that with a couple of new additions we will go one step further next season.’’

Club chairman Alwyn Jones added ‘this is great news for the club, Chris has done an excellent job with limited resources, we see him being a vital part of what we are trying to achieve and we are glad that he has decided to stay’. 

The Chairman continued ‘We are working hard off the pitch, continuously trying to improve and hopefully in doing so involving the community and get the Town behind us. We do have a ‘long term vision’ and are encouraging anyone who wants to be part of that vision to join us on this journey. We encourage anyone who has time on their hands (it doesn’t have to be Saturday’s) to come involved.’

Annual General Meeting is to be held on 11 June 2018, 7pm at the Bull Hotel, Llangefni.

RESERVES WIN AT LLANRUG

3rd May 2018

Keenan Latham and Aaron Rickards scored 2 goals each to give Llangefni Reserves their 3rd win in 4 games. Latham's double gave Cefni a 2-0 lead in the first 10 minutes but Llanrug were back on level terms before half-time. Aaron Rickards bagged himself a brace before the hour to make it 4-2 but Llanrug pulled another goal back to make it a nervy ending for the visitors. Both teams had chances late on but Llangefni held on to the lead and will be delighted with another 3 points.

FIRST TEAM FINISH SEASON WITH A DEFEAT

2nd May 2018

Llangefni lost 3-1 at home against Barmouth & Dyffryn in their last game of the season at Lon Talwrn. With a 1st place finish unlikely due to Conwy's games in hand, it was still important to end on a high and make it as difficult as possible for our rivals to win the league. Unfortunately the lads who have been superb for the majority of the season couldn't produce a good performance on the night and credit to Barmouth who came with a game plan and deserved the 3 points. Matthew Jones pulled a goal back for Cefni after going 2-0 down but the visitors sealed the win with a third to make the final score 3-1. I'm sure Chris, the coaching and playing staff would like to thank everyone for their support during the season and hopefully we'll go one better next year.

RESERVES WIN AT PENMAENMAWR

24th April 2018

Gareth Nelson Hughes scored the winner as Llangefni Town Reserves beat Penmaenmawr Phoenix Reserves 2-1 on Saturday. Having beaten the same team last week in the cup, Cefni needed to put in the same kind of performance to come away with 3 points. Keenan Latham gave the visitors an early lead with a superb turn and finish inside the box finding the bottom far corner. Phoenix equalised before half-time when they took advantage of some poor defending from Llangefni. Cefni upped their game in the second half and took the lead after 65 minutes thanks to a Garreth Hughes header at the far post from an Aron Edwards corner. Aaron Rickards could have increased the visitors advantage but the keeper made some good saves. Phoenix put pressure on the Cefni defence but they held firm to take all 3 points and continue their good form.
