GR8 WIN! GR8 PERFORMANCE!

27th August 2017

Llangefni made up for the midweek defeat with an outstanding performance against Pwlleli at Lon Talwrn. The conditions were perfect for us to get the ball down and play good football and that's exactly what we did. Craig Roberts gave Cefni an early lead with a cool finish and doubled his tally ten minutes later. Iwan Jones pounce on a rebound to make it 3-0 and Sean Pritchard made it 4-0 with a powerful finish from the edge of the area. Harry Galeotti scored Llangefni's fifth just before half time by chesting the ball in at the far post. After missing out on promotion last season on goal difference, we know how important it is to score as many as we can and with 3 points already in the bag, it was great to see us show the same intensity in the second half. Galeotti helped himself to a hat-trick while Matthew Jones came off the bench to score his first of the season. Chris Roberts will be delighted with the players reaction to the Llanrug defeat and will be looking for the same kind of performance against St Asaph in two weeks time.

TOWN SLUMP TO DEFEAT IN LLANRUG

24th August 2017

Llangefni suffered their first league defeat at Llanrug on Wednesday night. With a few players missing through injuries and suspension, Cefni were still able to field strong starting 11 but fell behind after 20 minutes through a powerful long range strike from Jonathan Sadler. The visitors equalised 5 minutes later when Iwan Jones placed his shot beyond the keeper and in the bottom corner. It wasn't long before Llangefni were in front. Jack Williams played in Gari Owen down the right and his cross found Iwan Jones who made no mistake with the header for his second of the match. Just as Cefni thought they were going in at half-time in the lead, Llanrug's long throw caused all sorts of problems and Sadler was on hand to take full advantage at the back post to make it 2-2. The second half was played mostly in Llanrug's half with Harry Galeotti looking impressive in midfield. Osian Jones had the visitors best chance before Alan Mark gave Utd the lead 10 minutes from time when he pounced on a poor clearance to fire the ball low into the bottom corner. Paul Rowlands nearly scored a late equaliser but the goalkeeper pulled off a great save and Llanrug held firm to claim all 3 points. With games coming thick and fast, Llangefni have no time to dwell on this result and Chris Roberts will be looking for a reaction from his players against Pwllheli on Saturday, 2.30 kick off at Lon Talwrn.

CEFNI EASE TO ANOTHER 3PTS

16th August 2017

Last night saw Cefni clinch another 3 points away to Trearddur Bay United. The game started brightly with Cefni looking to pick up where they left off on Saturday. Chris Roberts made 4 changes to the team that beat Penrhyndeudraeth over the weekend. Craig Roberts first hit the bar after some great link up play involving Jack Williams, Harry Galeotti and Deion Evans. Then it was Harry's turn to rock the bar as he unleashed an effort from 25 yards. Jack Williams found himself through on goal with only the keeper to beat but could not find the back of the net, then it was Jack's turn again as a great low drive into the box from Craig Roberts found Jack un-marked in the box but he put to much onto it and his effort went over the bar. By now Cefni could have been 3 or 4 up, we kept going and our reward cam on 30mins as the Trearddur Bay keeper could only parry Iwan Jone's shot into the path of Craig Roberts who slotted home from 6yds out. (Half Time 0-1 Cefni)

Cefni began the second half with some great possession play which saw Harry Galeotti hit the bar again. Ryan Jones was always looking dangerous on the ball for Trearddur Bay and had a shot inches wide. A great save from the Trearddur Bay keeper saw the ball come out to Gari Owen who unleashed a shot from all of 30yards which flew into the roof of the net (0-2 Cefni). Osian Jones cam off the beanch to seal the win as Craig Roberts chested the ball down to Osian and he let rip a half volley into the bottom corner (0-3).

In truth this game could have seen Cefni score a lot more goals, but it was a comfortable evenings work and a great 3pts away from home against Trearddur Bay who are always a tough opponent.   

Full Time Score: Treadrrur Bay 0 - 3 Llangefni Town

Scorers: Craig Roberts, Gari Owen, Osian Jones 

CEFNI OFF TO A WINNING START!

14th August 2017

CEFNI OFF TO A WINNING START!

Iwan Jones and Harry Galeotti got the goals that saw Cefni get off to a winning start at home in the league to Penrhyndeudraeth on Saturday.

Llangefni started well and looked to get at Penrhyn right from the off, Craig Roberts and Osian Jones both going close to opening the scoring. Iwan Jones did well to beat his man at the far post and deliver a great ball into the box but cefni just couldn't get anyone on the end of it to convert. On 20mins the deadlock was broken as a mix-up in the Penrhyn defence saw Iwan latch onto the loose ball and was clear on goal he rounded the keeper and put the ball into the empty net (1-0 Cefni). Cefni really should have doubled their lead just before the break as some great link-up play down the right saw Cai Powell-Roberts drive down the wing with the ball before delivering a great cross into the box for the un-marked Gari Owen who blazed his shot over the bar from close range. (Half Time 1-0) 

Penrhyn started the second half brightly and looked to get at Llangefni right from the restart, but their effort went just wide of the post. this looked like it kicked Cefni back into gear and they started dominating possession once more. A late tackle on Steven Kehoe saw Huw Quaek receive his marching orders for a second booking. By now Cefni were well in control and a foul to Osian Jones just outside the box resulted in a freekick, New signing Harry Galeotti stepped up and hit his freekick straight into the top left hand corner of the net giving the Penrhyn keeper no chance. (2-0 Cefni). Osian Jones went close once more before Kieran Jeffreys hit the bar. 

Manager Chris Roberts was pleased with the result and had this to say "a great start to the league campaign, Penrhyn are always tough opponents they are a good side who always finish there or there abouts. It was pleasing to keep the clean sheet and we played some great football at times, the new signings looked to have settled in straight away with us. We dominated the game from start to finish really and could have scored more but all in all a great performance and we look forward to another tough match away at Trearddur Bay this Tuesday Night. It was good once more to see the great support we had at Saturday's game and we hope to see you all there again.

Scorers: Iwan Jones / Harry Galeotti

Next Match: Tuesday 15/08 - Trearddur Bay FC (Away) League 6.30pm
