Llangefni are out for revenge versus Glan
LLANGEFNI Town will be out for revenge when they entertain Glan Conwy in a Welsh Alliance League Division One clash this Friday (7.30pm).
A fortnight ago Cefni were knocked out of the FAW Trophy at Glan, so Chris Roberts’s side will be determined to bounce back.
Town will be in good heart ahead of the visit of the Conwy Valley men following last Saturday’s 3-1 league triumph at Llanrwst United.
Cefni were without the suspended Iwan Jones and Steven Kehoe, which meant 18-year-old Dafydd Jones made his first start for the club up front and Keenan Latham, aged just 16, kept his place at centre-back.
Craig Evans opened the scoring 25 minutes into the game with a penalty after Anthony Hughes was brought down inside the box.
Callum Parry scored an equaliser five minutes later when Llanrwst were awarded a penalty of their own after another foul inside the box.
After a scrappy first half visitors manager Roberts changed the formation and Llangefni started playing better football as well as creating more chances.
Hughes hit the post and Evans’s back-heel was saved by the keeper.
Evans’s second goal came with 15 minutes to go after he was first to the rebound when a Paul Rowlands hit the bar.
Connor Gordon, who has been in great form for the reserves, came off the bench to seal the win for Town in injury time when he pounced on a rebound after the goalkeeper failed to gather the ball.
Mark Griffith marked his return to Gwalchmai in style with a hat-trick in a 4-0 victory over Llandyrnog United at Maes Meurig.
Corey Sinnott also struck for the hosts, the win giving them a timely boost ahead of this weekend’s home Welsh Cup clash with Mold Alex.
Llanfairpwll put up a good battle at home to high-flyers Llandudno Junction before going down 2-0, James Hobson and Keiran Davies with the goals.
In Division Two, Amlwch Town were beaten 2-0 at home by leaders Greenfield, Shaun Beck scoring one in each half.
Mel McGinness bagged a brace for Gaerwen, but it was not enough to save his team from a 6-2 home loss at the hands of Llanllyfni.

Adam Cassidy edged the visitors in front, Jamie Whitmore equalised, but net-finders from Mike Jones, Cassidy and Craig Griffiths made it 4-1 at the interval.
Mark Hughes comverted a penalty for Llangefni after 66 minutes, but it did not affect the final outcome.
