RESERVES WIN AT LLANDYRNOG

29th October 2018

Llangefni Town Reserves came away from Llandyrnog with 3 points after coming from behind to win 2-1. The home side took the lead with an early penalty and goalkeeper Owen Hughes almost saved his 3rd of the season but the ball managed to squeeze past him and into the net. Cefni were soon level when they were awarded a penalty of their own when Sion Jones was pushed as he was about to head the ball. Aaron Rickards stepped up to score his 5th goal of the season. The visitors came out for the second half full of confidence and had the advantage of playing down hill. The winner came after 65 minutes when player/manager Gafyn Buckland hit a first time short from the half way line which looped over the keeper and into the net. Llangefni were well on top and should have made it more comfortable but Keenan Latham and Steven Jones' close range shots were saved and Nathan Sinnotts header went just wide of the post. The reserves travel to top of the league Porthmadog on Friday night 7.30 ko.

Rampant 6-0 win


A hat-trick from Kevin Lloyd helped Llangefni Town demolish Wrexham National League side Penycae 6-0, to progress through to the 4th Round of the Welsh Trophy.  


It took 36 minutes for Lloyd to open the scoring for Cefni, running on to a through ball to chip it over the keeper.  Few minutes later it was 2-0, a half cleared corner fell to the feet of Callum Mcminimee who’s 20 yard shot flew in to bottom left hand corner of the net.


Early in the second half it was 3-0, a great diagonal ball to the feet of Paul Rowlands wide on the right, who’s cross found James Saxon his excellent shot smashing the crossbar with Liam Morris pouncing (Pictured) to volley in the rebound.   Morris was at the heart of the action again for the 4th, his cross to Lloyd to volley in his 2nd from 12 yards out.  


On 81 minutes, a Sean Pritchard through ball to Iwan Jones, his pass finding Cai Powell Roberts on the right who’s deep cross found mcminimee at the far post to fire in his 2nd off the post. 5-0   And it was hat-trick hero Lloyd who finished the proceedings, scoring from the spot with only two minutes remaining on the clock.  


Next up is Llanberis at home in the Mawddach Cup. Saturday 3rd November 2:30pm.  Please note, as we have floodlights the kickoff time of league and cup matches this season will be 2:30pm.

BUCKLAND REFLECTS ON A TOUGH START FOR THE RESERVES

24th October 2018

We suffered a 4-0 defeat at Colwyn Bay on Friday night but once again our performance was far better than the score suggests. I’m never happy after losing but I have to praise my team for the effort they put in against a very strong and much more experienced side than ours. Mistakes are costing us goals and it’s important that the players learn from them in order to improve their decision making with and without the ball. Conceding the 2nd goal 10 seconds before half-time was tough to take, especially from a corner routine the opposition had tried at least 3 times earlier in the half. We dominated the first 15 minutes of the second half but the killer blow came when Colwyn bay scored from their first attack to make it 3-0. The 4th goal came in injury time when we were pushing forward and taking risks to try and get on the scoresheet. 4-0 really does flatter the opposition but they were far more clinical than us so they deserve the 3 points.

THE BIGGER PICTURE

One of my biggest challenges is getting people to see the bigger picture. This is my 4th season in the job and every season our results improve dramatically after Christmas. The reason for this is fairly obvious. Every year we have an influx of players who join us from the under 16’s and naturally they take time to adapt to physically and mentally to the demands of senior football. Some people might judge the team or players based on one game, but we see the improvement in them every week in training. As coaches, we have to be patient and stick to what we believe in. Our priority is to develop local players and help them improve every aspect of their game. The lads are getting experience of playing week in week out in a very competitive league and I’m convinced they have the talent and attitude to adapt and thrive in it. The players will progress and some will go on to play for the 1st team in a couple of years. Hopefully people will realise how vital they are and how important having a young reserve team full of local players is to the future of Llangefni Town Football Club.
