Goalless draw away to Greenfield

Llangefni Town played out a 0-0 draw away to Greenfield who remain unbeaten at home this season. 


Manager Chris Roberts made three changes to the side that beat Penrhyndeudraeth, with Gari Owen, Jack Williams and James Saxon starting.  


The match first real chance fell to  Llangefni on 15 minutes, with Matthew Jones beating his defender, he ran into the area, squared the ball to Craig Roberts who finished well to open the scoring, only for the goal to be ruled out for offside. 


A minute later, Steve Sinclair in Llangefni’s goal was called into action with a fine save from a 25 yard shot.  


Llangefni were enjoying a lot of possession in the Greenfield half, on 37 minutes, good work between Cai Powell-Roberts and Mathew Jones to Liam Morris through on goal with his shot saved by Danny Statnton in Greenfield’s goal.  


Moments later Llangefni saw another good opportunity to score, good counter attacking play when Morris beat his man, ran down the wing, cut inside and sent a great shot only to be denied once again by Stanton.  


Despite continuing to control the game, Cefni were forced to settle with a goalless scoreline at the interval.


Greenfield enjoyed a bright start when play recommenced, hitting the bar twice inside the first 5 minutes and forcing a couple of good saves from Sinclair in Cefni’s goal.


The game had an end to end feeling to it, but Llangefni were dealt a blow, when Daniel Thomas, who was solid at the back and had been a constant danger at set pieces, was shown a second yellow and subsequent red card for a mistimed tackle.


The ten men Cefni were then left to try and break the deadlock with the final stages approaching. They attacked via Callum

McMinimee, who crossed to Jones, whose header glanced across the Greenfield goal mouth before going out.


On 88 minutes, Harry Galeotti made a surging run down the wing and into the Greenfield area, but was tackled before he could deliver the ball into the six yard box where Cefni had men waiting.


Neither side could find a late winner, with referee Peter Kewly’ whistle confirming a 0-0 draw at full time.


The result keeps Cefni second in the Welsh Alliance League. Next up is Llanberis at home in the league. Saturday, 5 January.  2:30 kick off

JD WELSH CUP GLORY

9th December 2018

JD WELSH CUP GLORY

Llangefni Town progressed to the last 16 of the JD Welsh Cup following their impressive one goal to nil win against JD Welsh Premier oppositions Llanelli Town.

 

Alan Mark Owen’s goal in the 21st minute was enough to give Llangefni an impressive win in the much anticipated fixture in-front of a bumper Talwrn Road crowd.    

 

The visitors came into the fixture full of confidence, having picked up some impressive results recently. Meanwhile, Llangefni had midfielder Chris Saxon out suspended and top scorer Kevin Lloyd out with an injury.  Craig Roberts started for Cefni forming a vital part of their well-organised set up in midfield with captain James Saxon and Steve Kehoe.  

 

Chris Jones, Jordan Follows and former Swansea City player James Loveridge started in attack for Llanelli who were looking to avoid a cup upset.  

 

The game started with Cefni on the front foot, with three corner kicks  forced by the home side inside the opening 10 minutes. A corner kick created Cefni’s first major chance in the sixth minute, with Dan Thomas nearly connecting with Liam Morris’ delivery.  

 

James Saxon got an excellent chance on 11 minutes with his shot going straight to the hands of Oliver Davies in goal for Llanelli. 

 

Llanelli began to hit back, with James Loveridge breaking through on goal in the 18th minute only to be ruled out by the offside flag.

 

In the 21st minute Llanelli again had to deal with Cefni’s pressure, as Kurtis March blocked a Liam Morris effort from the edge of the area. From the resulting corner, a flick on to the far post to Alan Mark Owen to smash in the opener from 3 yards out to send the home crowd wild.  (  PICTURED)

 

Moments from the restart it was Alan Mark Owen once again through on goal, to force a brilliant save off Davies in goal.  

 

The encounter began to have an end to end feel to it, Llanelli keeping possession well but struggling to break down the formidable Cefni defence, before Follows found himself in the final third, sending an attempt on goal just wide.

 

Llangefni continued to create chances right up until the interval, with a Alan Mark Owen’s shot from 20 yards out on 43 minutes hitting the post.  

 

Llanelli went close in the 57th minute, with Jamie Owen getting to the edge of the six yard box only to send his effort over Steve Sinclair’s goal.

 

In the 69th minute Llanelli Town again went close, with Michael George sending a chipped ball glancing across the face of goal only for the ball to be cleared off the line by Gari Owen. 

 

Cai Powell-Roberts then showed some great skill in the Llanelli area, beating his defender before sending a tight angled effort just wide.

 

From a long, bounding ball, Alan Mark Owen beat Llanelli one remaining defender to go one on one to slot the ball past the Llanelli keeper on an angle from around 12 yards, only for his second of the match to be disallowed by the offside flag.  

 

Cefni then made changes as they looked to consolidate their lead, as Cai Powell-Roberts and the experienced Craig Roberts departed in place for Sean Pritchard and Marvin Pritchard.

 

The visitors were becoming frustrated as Cefni kept on blocking their offensive moves with time beginning to run out. 

 

Cefni were still looking for a second to seal the win in the 82nd minute, when Liam Morris ran into the area where he was beaten by Davies just before getting a shot away.

 

Four additional minutes were awarded by the fourth official, but Cefni saw these through with professional vigour as Steve Sinclair repeatedly collected aerial attacks from Llanelli.

 

Full time was confirmed by referee, with a crowd of over 300 congratulating Cefni for their efforts to secure the memorable victory.

 

Match highlight can be seen on Sgorio, 5:30pm tomorrow night (Minday, 10 December. The last 16 draw can be seen live on Heno, 7pm.  

 

 

We move onto our next game on Wednesday 12 December, at home against Mynydd Llandygai. 7:30pm kick off.
