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.

It was a dis­ap­point­ing day for Llan­ner­chymedd as they went down 2-1 at

Pic: DAI SIN­CLAIR Halkyn United, Iwan Wil­liams notch­ing their con­so­la­tion goal.

Mynydd Llan­de­gai lost 4-2 against pow­er­ful visi­tors Prestatyn Sports.

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.

Barry Haigh and De­clan Jones net­ted for Trearddur Bay in a 2-1 win over Llan­rug in Re­serve Di­vi­sion West.
