THE TOWN WIN IN LOCAL DERBY

Llangefni Town progressed through to the 3rd round of the FAW Trophy with a 3 - 0 win over local rivals Gaerwen.  Manager Chris Roberts made seven changes to the side that beat Greenfield last week, with Liam Ewing, Andy Sinclair, Steve Kehoe, Liam Morris, Paul Rowlands, Iwan Jones and Marvin Pritchard all starting.  

 
In an evenly contested first half Matthew Jones came the closest to opening the scoring on 30 minutes with his looping shot from 20 yards rebounding off the crossbar. Dan Thomas eventually gave Cefni the lead on the stroke of half time, towering above Gaerwen’s defence to head home his 3rd goal of the season.       ( Pictured )

 

Former Gaerwen striker Liam Morris doubled Cefni's lead on 55 minutes, beating his man to finish well from 12 yards. With just ten minutes remaining substitute Alan Mark Owen sealed the win for the Town with a tap in at the far post following good work from Marvin Pritchard.

We caught up with the manager after the game:

“We always knew that Gaerwen would up their game coming to Lon Talwrn and that was the case today. We found it hard to get going in the opening 45 minutes and were wasteful in possession. A few harsh words were said to the players at half time and i felt that we came out in the second half much better, moving the ball well and with a quick tempo to our play. We made 7 changes to the team that started in the league last weekend and it was good to give a few players coming back from injury etc some minutes. All in all a poor performance but another win to keep our unbeaten run going and we progress into the next round.”

PWLLHELI RES 2-2 LLANGEFNI T RES

10th September 2018

Llangefni Town Reserves came away from Pwllheli with a point after a tough battle against a good side. Cefni took the lead after 35 minutes when Aaron Rickards finished off the best move of the match with a low drive into the bottom far corner. Pwllheli responded with 2 goals just before half-time and went in 2-1 up at the break. The home side dominated the first 15 minutes of the second half but the visitors got some last ditch tackles and blocks in to ensure they didn't fall further behind. After soaking up the pressure, Nathan Hughes made it 2-2 by cutting inside and curling a shot into the top corner from 25 yards. Llangefni gained confidence from this and could easily have won the game but the goalkeeper pulled off some good saves, including a point blank effort from Cameron Jones 2 minutes from time. The team will be delighted to earn their first point of the season and will now look to kick on from this away against Llanrug Utd Reserves on Saturday, 2.30 kick off.

Llangefni Town 4 - 2 Greenfield

9th September 2018


Three goals in the last 10 minutes capped a resilient Llangefni display as they fought back from 2-1 down to beat Greenfield 4-2 at Talwrn Road.

This was a match that Cefni should have put to bed in the first half, creating enough chances to win two matches and hitting the woodwork 5 times.  


Two changes from the side that beat Llandyrnog last week, Craig Roberts and Matthew Jones starting ahead of attackers Liam Morris and Alan Owen. 


Matthew Jones came closest to opening the scoring when he latched onto Powell-Roberts speculative ball on 9 minutes, but dragged his effort wide from eight yards. Moments later, Kevin Lloyd shaped up to shoot from 25-yards out and sent his effort onto the crossbar.  


Jones gave Cefni the lead on the half hour, getting in between Greenfield’s centre half to head in Lloyd’s cross giving the home side a deserved 1-0 lead. 


Cefni had the chance to kill the game on 49 minutes; first Sean Pritchard saw his shot blocked from James Saxon’s square ball before Kev Lloyd’s effort was deflected wide.


On 60 minutes, Greenfield were awarded a penalty for a push on Daniel Sim.  Danny Calvert stepped up to equalise making the score 1-1.   


The match became more of a battle with Greenfield choosing to up their physical game. They began to win the midfield battles and played some good passing football that caused more than one flashpoint.


Good work from Mark Johnson on 74 minutes, opened up Cefni’s defence, a through ball from Calvert to Sean Beck who was through on goal but was brought down by keeper Steve Sinclair. Another penalty for Greenfield converted by Calvert making it 2-1 for the visitors.  


The home side did not panic and showed excellent character to bounce back.  On 79 minutes, a fine shot by left back Jack Williams equalised and few minutes later, Lloyd got the ball inside the 18 yard box, his back to goal, a back heel through ball to Williams who delivered a brilliant ball to substitute Iwan Jones at the back post who scored from 6 yards out to make it 3-2. 


It wasn’t over, Greenfield pushed everything forward and on 90 minutes gained a corner.  The corner was dealt with by the Cefni’s defence, a long ball found Lloyd who shrugged off his man and had only the keeper to beat, but was pulled down by the last man who was luck to stay on the pitch.  The third penalty of the match was converted by Lloyd giving Llangefni the 4-2 win in this thrilling match.   


Next up is a local derby match v Gaerwen in the FA Wales Trophy match. 2:30 kickoff
